all component at cytron can controlled by other controller?? such as PLC (programmable logic control) not PIC. tq

It depends on the sensor and device. Many type of signal can be interfacing like digital input, digital output, analog input, analog output, UART, SPI, I2C and many more.

What I know, PLC can deal with digital input, digital output and analog input. Analog output I don't know PLC have module or not.
I don't know how to PLC deal with UART, SPI and I2C signal, but I know PLC have RS232 and RS485 connection. PLC deal with communication protocol named Modbus or Profibus.

I think most of Cytron product is aiming for microcontroller, which is either 5V or 3.3V TTL. Not really familiar with PLC, but still it can be interface as long as the voltage is compatible. I have seen some uses PLC to build mobile robot which uses motor driver and sensor, though not sure where are those devices from, it should be compatible with microcontroller.

Compatible does not mean plug and play, it means you might need to do some extra interface, and you might not, depends!
