Fundamentals of PLC Programming

ISBN Number: 978-1-4276-4598-2

The World of Automation is in constant change. In order to respond to the markets needs, new automation products are launched every day. These automation products are based on the available technology that can be obtained from both: Components and manufacturing capabilities. Since the fast evolution of industrial automation is becoming the main fact in competitiveness in a more globalized world, both parts involved (Industries and Engineers), need to look for a good and right knowledge that can help them to survive.

Education on PLCs is the key to success.

Trying to cover all the aspects about information is indeed a hard task, which we are working on but for sure, will take a lot of our time.

Our book on PLC fundamentals is the ideal choice of professors of Universities and Colleges, that have a regular course on Programmable Automation Controllers ( PLCs) or Industrial Automation Processes ( PACs ), because of the following advantages:

  1. Basic Theory on PLCs.
  2. Basic Theory on Ladder Logic.
  3. Lessons with practice on Ladder Logic.
  4. Examples of machines and Projects with PLC.
  5. Simulation Software to assign homeworks to students.
  6. Real practice on our low cost PLC trainers.
  7. Appendixes of several popular PLC brands.

In addition to Educators, other professionals can also have benefit of the book:

Note to professors/instructors: Please don´t cut your students´wings by teaching a particular brand of PLC.Teach as many brands as possible.

Important: Pocket PLC trainers are available for purchase so, in addition to the free software you can also practice with real PLCs.

Most of the books about Programmable Logic Controllers you find in the market :

- Have only theory about PLCs.
- Are associated to a particular PLC brand which, in our concept, is pretty unfair with the students.
- Just a few of them have lessons and examples.
- Almost none of them include simulator software.
This is the best way to learn ladder logic programming because it´s like you were buying three different books:

One for Theory, one for Lessons and a third one for Real applications.

Learning about Programmable Logic Controllers is a real need for any technician/engineer who wants to work or applying for a job in the field of automation. It has been proven that it becomes a major disadvantage when you are educated on the technology of just one particular manufacturer, because most of the companies have at least two different PLC brands on their industrial processes. You become more competitive if you are able to easily switch from programming one PLC to another, like you were able to speak several languages.
