Functional Block Diagrams, Sequential Function Charts, Instruction Lists, Ladder Diagrams, and Structured Text.
What Will I Learn?
  • —At the completion of this course, students will be able to program almost every modern PLC irrespective of mfg.
  • —Students will be familiar with all five IEC programming paradigms and comfortable with them.
  • —Training students well enough to set out a complex PLC system
  • —All required software for this course is free of charge and links will be given
  • — Before taking this course, you should already have completed “Scratch PLC Programming (PLC I)”

You already know how to program a PLC, and use Ladder Diagrams to do what you want. But as you are certainly aware, many other “paradigms” (programming languages) are out there to build logic, and you want to program with them all competently.

While studying the paradigms, while RSLogix 500 you do want to develop a degree of familiarity with a few other development environments. Now, you will be learning both the Logix5000 environment and the Related Components Workbench from AB. Then we will get away from AB and do a lot of research in the Automation Builder of ABB where you will also be able to work hands-on with All 5 IEC paradigms PLUS a proprietary language ABB. As your software grows, every step of the way you can simulate it, and run your code in real-time.

At the end of the course, you’ll be exposed to a brand new technology that isn’t even on the market yet that has the enormous potential to change the entire automation industry by allowing a programmer to write a program ONCE and then export that project as programs for Several different processors across the board. And yes, you can put your hands on this new technology as well!

Why Are There Four PLC Courses?

PLC Tutorial 1 Teaches you how to program ladder logic, which is the most common language for PLC programming. The aim is to teach you all you need to know in order to make a PLC do what you want it to do. You are also given all the necessary software to live both CREATE and RUN your own programs-right on your own computer.

PLC Tutorial 2 Requires you to take what you’ve learned to solve the problem unassisted after the increasingly more challenging task. You get a spec and you’re clearly told: “Make it work and don’t advance until you’ve got it.” Then, you’ll be able to watch me solve each. You don’t know exactly how to program by the end-you ‘re a PROGRAMMER.

PLC Tutorial 3 Gives you both knowledge and experience in different HMI / SCADA production environments in FIVE. In the end, you have created many Full visualization (screen) projects that you can actually run on your own machine (and in an interview, SHOW PEOPLE) without any external hardware.

PLC Tutorial 4 This is for heavyweights only. This course teaches you how to program in different settings, using all five IEC programming languages (plus one more). There are also ventures, and you’ve seen it all by the end and have done it all. Nobody can show you anything that you won’t already be familiar with.

Who is the target audience?
  • —This course follows up on “Scratch PLC Programming (PLC I)” and builds on the skills and techniques that NO reviews or primers imparted in that course.
  • —If you haven’t completed my course titled “Scratch PLC Programming (PLC I)” already, you ‘re probably NOT ready for it. If you’ve taken it but you’ve missed something, before you take this course, it will be your turn to go back through it.
  • — PLC II and PLC III are NOT necessary conditions for the course.
