Programmable Logic Controllers: I/O Communication

3.5 2 Reviews SKU: ELPIOC0CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The most visible parts of the programmable logic controller system are the input system and the output system, the I/O for short. The I/O systems are the interfaces between the PLC processor and the world. A programmable logic controller is a microprocessor-based system that operates on low voltages, typically 5 volts. The real-world devices that control machines or processes operate on a wide range of voltages and currents, as high as 240 volts AC or 125 volts DC. This course will examine the various ways in which real-world devices can be connected to the input and output systems of a programmable logic controller.
