Task 3 [M1] What are the benefits and limitations of the PLC you have chosen for in (Task 2). Must include Hardware and Software.

Specifically I have selected the Siemens S7-224 for the above system which provides 24 Inputs/Outputs which I believe would meet the custom built machines requirements. A PLC like this is very well suited for small to medium scale tasks it is compact and simple. Because of this it can be attached directly to the system it is controlling in this case the custom built machine. Due to the simplicity of this PLC its users will not have the confusion of messy applications
