The proposed system will control and monitor the liquid level of the tank continuously and will ensure that a sufficient level of water is maintained. This system can be used ubiquitously in industrial application. It can be used to prevent industrial accident by overfilling of any open container, to prevent overfilling of any closed container thereby creating over pressure condition. The high number of the input output port of the PLC will enable this single system to control large number of tanks single handed. Leakage can also be monitored. The PLC used in this system is a Allen Bradley-1400 which have the more number of I/O's , memory and also easy to operate.
