Plc Electrical Control Systems
This course is designed to introduce the student to the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) with respect to the terms, hardware, operation and communication. The student will learn to recognize Programmable Logic Controller hardware and program configurations in real PLC and/or computer emulated environments. The student will be able to understand the functions the controllers perform the programming instructions, online/offline configurations and communication techniques, design and implement simple programs in discrete and analog configurations. Computer software will be used throughout the course for configuration, development, editing and monitoring of application programs. Equivalent to PLC100 in part-time studies.
