PLC, or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures. PLCs are used in many machines, in many industries.
Here is a sample how PLC could operate all input and output commands for battery banking

If you run a battery when it is undercharged or if it is flat then it is very likely that you will damage your battery beyond repair. Running your batteries flat results in compounding costs as you have to keep replacing the depleted battery. Sometime we do not even know that we are running the battery flat. A battery may be connected to an appliance and run flat without our knowing. In this situation you need a battery protector in order to safeguard your battery against running flat.
A battery protector will cut the power supply when the battery’s voltage drops below a predetermined mark. Ensure that you don’t have to constantly keep checking your battery levels by implementing safeguard systems to protect your battery against power depletion
