Design and Control of Aquarium Water Management System using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

M.Z.A Rashid, S.K.S Nordin

Aquatic lives in the aquarium are easily affected with the changes of the aquarium condition such as temperature, PH level and the lighting. These conditions are very critical for the surviving of the aquatic lives in the aquarium. For the large scale aquarium, human supervisory is ineffective. Thus the implementation of Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is applied to replace the supervisory positions responsibility. Without the PLC and sensor, the feedback condition of the aquarium is not obtained in a fast manner. When no swift action is taken, this will increase the risk of affecting the aquatic life in the aquarium. In the end, this will lead to the death of the aquatic life. Furthermore, with the use of PLC, the aquarium condition can be monitor and being connected to other hardware application which improve the operation water system. As today the technology improved to a new level of wireless connection using Bluetooth device or wireless wavelength, enabling user to monitor and control PLC at PC distance away from PLC.
