Programmable Logic Controllers: Programming Functions, Part 2

SKU: ELPPF20CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) have been very successful because they can effectively use bit or discrete I/O instructions to receive inputs from switches and other binary sensors and then drive output field devices such as motor contactors, solenoid valves, and indicators. But modern PLCs are able to do much more by using additional instructions to perform more sophisticated functions such as timing, counting, calculating, manipulating data, and even making decisions. This course will examine many of these "non-I/O" PLC instructions.
