In recent days industries have started shifting the operation from manual to automation. Normally, when the conveyor motor is started it experiences some shock or jerk over the motor, which results in change in position of the conveyor where it should actually be positioned. Where PLC is used as soft starter. In this paper, GXWORKS 2 software is used to program PLC. Each output terminal is connected to the terminals of the regulator which in turn connected to the conveyor motor. PLC is programmed in such a way that the output terminals energizes consequently one by other while start and de-energizes one by other consequently. This operation enables the conveyor motor to start smoothly and run without jerk and stop at the exact position that is required to attain. Thus the PLC which is already in use in the industry for other operations is used as soft starter and remains economical
