LogisticsMatter Looks at Rationale for on-Board PLC With Kivnon

Kivnon USA, a leader in developing, designing, producing, and distributing automated guided vehicles (AGVs), was recently profiled in LogisticsMatter magazine explaining the benefits of on-board PLCs in automated guided vehicles. Read the full feature here.

With the growth of large footprint warehouses, distribution centers, and large 3PLs, one of the most crucial decisions in the initial design phase of a machine is the selection of the control system.

In recent years, the evolution of PCs and PLCs have reduced the differences between them, however there are relevant distinctions for in-process automation and industrial internet of things (IIoT).

When comparing control systems, we must evaluate their performance with respect to different criteria. When analyzing system operations, the focus should be on how the system will run and how instructions and tasks are processed. The standard PLC has an embedded real-time operating system with a dedicated processor that ensures a high degree of control system reliability.

PLC may prove the best solution for deterministic industrial protocols and field buses (including fail-safe requirements) for sensors and actuators of an AGV/AMR.

Kivnon will be exhibiting at MODEX 2022 in Atlanta from March 28 – 31 at Booth #C5488.
