Description: Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are increasing in use, and technicians in all fields must be familiar with the fundamentals of installing, programming, and troubleshooting digital and analog PLCs. This course provides a solid foundation in PLC theory, installation, programming, operation, and troubleshooting. Many large, detailed drawings of commercial and industrial PLC systems are used in the training. Video, power point slides, CDROM and computer simulations are used to enhance the learning of digital and analog PLCs. Trainees use real equipment as well as lap top simulations and paper and pencil exercises to learn the ins-and-outs of programming.

This course is designed to equip the novice with no prior PLC programming experience with the basic tools necessary to create a complete PLC program using ladder logic common to most current platforms. Topics such as general controls, digital and analog IO, ladder logic programming, alarm / notification handling, HMI, emulation, best practices and more will be part of the hands-on portion of the course. The use of different ladder logic instructions to create a complete PLC program from scratch will enhance the understanding of alarm and notification programming, and the relevant considerations to safety and operator usability.

Two day duration (8 hours each day) and up to 8 students may attend. Call or email for dates of next scheduled session. Phone: (302) 690.0871 Email:
