PLCs vs. Microcontrollers

PLC: Programmable Logic Controller
MCU: Microcontroller

1. PLC Programming is Wysiwyg (What you see is what you get) Programming (Ladder Type) which is easy while Microcontroller depends on  Hand Coding Programming.

2. It is easier to Build a Big Machine using PLC but building a big machine using only Microcontroller will take awful time.

3.For Small Machine Microcontroller is better while PLC is costly.

4. PLC is basically for Industrial use for controlling machinery, while Microcontroller can be used for any types of application.
