ETEC - Programmable Logic Controllers - 00175177

Description: A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a device used widely in industrial automation to control anything from a small self contained water filter system up to an entire factory production line. This course introduces applying PLCs in automated systems. This course covers the fundamental ladder logic programming using Allen Bradley software and controllers. The increasingly popular international standard IEC programming languages will be introduced, as well as PLCs from other manufacturers. The basics of automation safety, steps in designing and documenting PLC programs, as well as trouble shooting will be covered. This class emphasizes hands on lab work.
