Answer / bm
Scan time of DCS is more than the scan time of PLC when the
I/O's are digital.
Whereas the scan time of DCS is less than the scan time of
PLC when the I/O's are analog.
Hence DCS is better when analog signals are considered
whereas PLC is better when digital signals are considered.
However DCS do handle both analog and digital signals. It
can also have more no. of I/O's compared to PLC. Hence we

Answer / kyle condran
DCS are not PC based. the configuration and operating software are but the actual control happens in a control module. DCS usually have a fixed scan time 50ms+, but not always, regardless of I/O count or program size.
PLC scan time depends on Program size and I/O used in the program.

Answer / solomon
Eventhough PLC scan time is less,DCS is selected for its
I/O availability.About 1 lakh I/O available in DCS.
