The paper represents the primary development of wireless control and monitoring system based on PLC (programmable logic controller) with LabVIEW communication. The objective of the project is to maintain the tension of thread by controlling the MPM (meter per minute) of Re-beamer of winding system used in textile industries. I have used ZigBee (IEEE standard 802.15.4) as wireless platform. I have used OPC (object linking and embedding for process control) server to link LabVIEW with PLC and to plant. LabVIEW is applied as an SMI (software machine interface) in project. The operation of project execution is – Develop the ladder program and takes Tachogenerator feedback signal of carrier beamer from system and enables the control of VFD (variable frequency drive).VFD worked as a final control element in close loop system. Winding system is controlled under VFD only. Frequency from VFD varies the speed and maintains MPM of the Re-beamer.
