Does anyone know or have a reference indicating what PLC [programmable logic controller] brands are popular in China?
Berkeman, are you offering what was being called soft PLCs?
It seems that person wants to know the brands of PLCs being used in China. Actually I’m a member of TC124, a technical committee that handles standardization of fieldbus technologies. I review documents passed along in the committee. Popular technologies are Profibus (Profinet), Modbus, ControlNet, Interbus and etc. For the PLC brand, I believe most popular ones are Siemen’s or Controlnet (Rockwell), then it goes to Japanese maker Omron. Since the aviation industry is mission critical, I doubted that Omron plays a role there as Chinese are more likely and willingly to pay for the top brand - we want to use the best. Siemens and Rockwell are certainly the top brands in the industry.
Hope that helps!
