Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's) - Hardware, Inputs, Outputs, Discrete/Analog

4.0 1 Review SKU: RVI-10914Duration: 30 Minutes

This interactive online course is designed to help you understand the hardware used in PLC’s as well as how discrete and analog inputs and outputs permit the programmer to aid machinery in performing at a more efficient and stable state.  Inputs are signals or data received by a system and outputs are the signals or data sent from it. Input/output (I/O) devices are used by a human, or system, to communicate with a computer. For instance, a keyboard is an input device for a computer, while a monitor is an output device.This course will examine the primary causes of faults associated with PLC based control systems: I/O devices and field wiring. We will discuss both hardware and software which will aid in finding these faults quickly. You will be introduced to analog inputs and outputs. These include sensors and actuators that will be of use for industrial measurements and movements.
