About the Course

Course Overview
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have been an important part of industrial automation. PLC is a specialized computer that is used for the overall control and operation of processes.  It uses a programmable memory to store instructions and execute specific functions. PLCs can be used in common applications such as a washing machine or for controlling traffic signals and elevators. This course will provide the fundamentals of a programmable logic controller (PLC). 


Course Description
Topics include Parts of PLC - Basic operation - PLC Architecture,Input/Output devices,Number Systems and Logic Concepts,PLC Ladder Logic Programming, Instruction Set and Sequencer Programming Methods,Shift registers,Internal relays,RSLogix,HMI.
