The automatic sorter machine using PLC is a system that sorts productsbasedonspecificcriteriasuchas size, weight, or color. The system consists of a programmable logic controller (PLC), sensors, actuators, motors, conveyor system, power supply, programming software, HMI development software, and communication protocols. The sorting process is automated, with the PLC controlling them ovement of products to the sorting stations based on the selected sensors'feedback. The HMI allows the operator to monitor and control the sorting process and displays information such as the status of the machine, the number of products sorted, and any errors or alarms. The system's design and implementation require careful consideration of the sorting requirements, selection of appropriate sensors and actuators, design of the control algorithm, programming of the PLC, development of the HMI, testing and commissioning, and maintenance and optimization. The automatic sorter machine using PLC is a reliable and efficient solution for automated sorting processes in various industries such as manufacturing, packaging, and logistics.
