Programmable Logic Controllers: Introduction to Programming, Part 1

SKU: ELPIP10CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Ladder diagrams have been used in machine automation and process control applications for many years. Programmable logic controllers that are programmed to run ladder diagram programs have replaced virtually all hardwired controls. PLCs are cheaper and more versatile, and most importantly, they can be made to perform different functions by simply changing their programs. Once the PLC is installed and connected to the machine or process being controlled, it is almost ready to go. The last thing that needs to be done is to program the PLC to do its job. This course will detail how to enter a simple ladder diagram program into the memory of a programmable logic controller.
