Abstract: The objective of this paper is to design, develop and monitor “Automatic Color Mixing and Filling Using PLC and SCADA”. A modern programmable logic controller deliver a wide range of functionality, including basic relay control, motion control, process control, and complex networking, as well as being used in Distributed Control Systems. There are several different types of interfaces that are used when people need to interact with the programmable logic controller to configure it or work with it. In this application, going to mix the color in different proportion and fill in a bottle using PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). Here Allen Bradley Micrologix 1400x PLC is used, which acts as the heart of the system. The system sequence of operation is designed by ladder diagram. Several electronics and electric devices that usually be controlled and operated by the PLC such as a submersible motor pump, conveyor belt, solenoid valve, relays etc. This system is applicable in color mixing plant, milk industries, chemicals, foods, mineral water and many more manufacturing, processing and packaging industries. A prototype has been developed to illustrate the application.
