What are the pros and cons of a manually-operated system?
Manually-operated systems require a technician to mount the DUT and slowly increase pressure with a knob.  Manual systems can make sense where control accuracy and recording test conditions are not high priorities, where there is high variability in the kinds of tests being performed, or where a simple go/no-go result is desired.  Simpler requirements make these systems popular in smaller MRO facilities.  Additionally, technicians can create novel tests on-the-fly by turning knobs however makes sense in the moment.
When should I consider a PLC-based system?
PLC-based systems offer automation in clamping, submersion, rotation, and pressure increase, improving accuracy and repeatability over manual systems.  PLC-based systems feature a simple HMI (Human Machine Interface) screen, do not typically record data at rates faster than 10 Samples/s, and can make sense when types of test are limited (usually to 1 test), are highly repeatable, and do not require high-speed data acquisition.
What are the advantages of a Real-Time, PC-based system?
Real-Time PC-based systems offer faster control and sampling rates (via the Real-time system) and more advanced user interfaces (via the PC).  In addition to faster sampling, which enables better control, measurement resolution is typically better as well.  For example, 16-bit measurements are sixteen times more precise than 12-bit readings.  Real-time control means fast response times.  Sampling rates can exceed 10,000 Samples/s per channel.  Advanced user interfaces offer virtually unlimited test profiles, which can be pre-defined and uploaded.  Lastly, advanced user interfaces typically include a “manual control screen” for operating the equipment as if it were in manual mode.
