Abstract or Summary

Equipment such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) become outdated and obsolete over time. Support for older devices becomes limited and they become incompatible with new computer operating systems. In the end, they are no longer used by industry. Hence, this project considers reconditioning a FESTO manufacturing machine by replacing the old PLC with a Rockwell PLC so that it’s compatible with the mini industrial network in the mechatronics lab. This upgrade allows the machine to be used for student training in the automation courses.
