This book has been written a undergraduate Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) course. It effectively introduces the student to a broad range of knowledge and skills essential to using PLCs in implementing control schemes in a variety of industries. The text is comprehensive in that it covers control logic design, PLC hardware and software, PLC instructions, and PLC programming.
- This highly useful text includes valuable information for students, as well as practitioners, from important basics to advanced PLC programming instructions.
- It is designed for flexible use, so readers can easily choose their desired depth of coverage.
- The first five chapters focus on the electrical control fundamentals, number systems, logic basics, Boolean algebra, and simplifying logic circuits.
- Chapters 6 and 7 introduce two methods of designing PLC control logics and circuits that often are absent in other PLC texts.
- The next three chapters cover PLC memory, file structure, discrete input and output modules, and analog input and output modules.
- Exercises, study questions, and numerous illustrations throughout reinforce key concepts.
