Episode 43 - What are PLCs?

After his original interview way back in episode 3, we fully intended to have Dom come back an tell us more about the mysterious world of PLCs. But then he ran off to the other side of the world and couldn't talk to us... until now! Dom is back and we are finally going to learn what a PLC is and why industry loves them so much.

Turns out they are very special computers which are integral to making many of the products you use and consume every day. In a world where microprocessing has become hobbyist and widely available, PLCs are a technology which has remained strictly industrial. So you're probably not going to learn about these things on instructables. You're just going to have to learn about it here!
