PLC's PROGRAMMABLE LOGICAL CONTROLLER

The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is the cornerstone of factory automation systems around the world. Since its introduction in 1969, the PLC has been the go-to technology for industrial machine- and process-control. The number of PLCs in active use continues to grow every year, and today US businesses invest more than $1.5 billion annually in new installations. Enjoy a hands-on introduction to PLC programming with this six-week course.

Starting from basic logic operations and advancing through counters, timers, sequencers, and subroutines, you can expect to develop a strong foundation in programmable controller concepts. The ladder diagrams traditionally used with PLCs are an intuitive and visual way of describing autonomous processes, so you may find PLCs to be a gentler introduction to computer technology than desktop PCs and traditional programming. You will also apply the theory we discuss in targeted lab exercises, giving you the chance to try a low-cost PLC suitable for your own automation needs.
