English translation:PLC
Explanation:
Autómata is the Spanish term for PLC, Programmable Logic Controller. It is a controller which receives input signals from different data transmitters, performs calculations, and sends output signals to control the process. It's not a computer, but more like a super programmable calculator. PLC is the standard English term, and that would be the correct translation.

Good Luck!!
