Revere Control Systems is making available its latest white paper, "DCS Versus PLC: A User's Guide to Selecting the Most Effective Control Platform for Your Application." While distributed control systems (DCS) and programmable logic controllers (PLC) have traditionally been viewed as competing platforms, they are not necessarily mutually-exclusive technologies. When the end-use application serves as the basis for making a sound decision, the selection process becomes more efficient, and a more effective outcome results. This white paper provides general guidelines and a comparison chart and highlights key considerations when choosing a control system platform.
