Programmable Logic Controllers: Program Entry, Testing, and Modification, Part 2

SKU: ELPPE20CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Installing and maintaining programmable logic controller systems (PLCs) involves working with PLC equipment and hardware as well as communications and programming software. A major part of PLC work involves installing, debugging, and changing the program, or project, in a PLC processor. In order to do this work effectively, a thorough understanding of the system and the procedures needed for program entry, testing, and modification is necessary. This course will examine the techniques used initially to install and test a PLC program as well as how to make changes to PLC configurations and programs.
