Project Review on Water Level Sensing Using PLC

Osama Mahfooz, Mujtaba Memon, Asim Iftikhar


A PLC is a digital computer used to automate electromechanical processes. This research is based on automation of a water tank by using Siemens PLC. Automatic control of water tanks can work continuously and can provide accurate quantity of water in less time. In such process there is no need of labor so there is no human error. Without human error, the quality of product is better and the cost of production would definitely decrease with no error in quantity required. Water level sensing can be implemented in industrial plants, commercial use and even at home
