Specialized computers, referred to as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), are frequently used to synchronize the flow of inputs from (physical) sensors and events with the flow of outputs to actuators and events. This leads to precisely controlled actions of almost any industrial process. Transients can cause PLCs to fail and/or cause the output device like (industrial robots) to malfunction. Although less dramatic than high-voltage transients, the long-term effect of these frequent disturbances can be just as damaging. Power line filters such as our Islatrol® Active Tracking Filters, provide clean AC power by eliminating lower-voltage noise.
