PLC TRAINERS

Affordable and powerful equipments to learn about ladder logic and PLC programming.

   
                                                                                 
         

If you look for affordable and  powerful trainers, that allow you to learn  with real practice, this is for sure you best choice.
If you plan to develop automation projects, these trainers will help you in having your prototypes up and running  in no time .

We believe that a good way to learn about programmable logic controllers is through practice. But let’s face it, most of the equipments to train on PLCs lack of two main characteristics:They don´t cover all the required aspects of learning or they are very expensive an really unaffordable.

To solve this situation we designed our PLC trainers, providing you the following advantages:

     
                                                                                 

More New Technologies

You can learn the classical concepts or you can innovate with new approaches in the changing world of industrial automation.

 

Extremely Low Cost

For the cost of a PLC you can buy a complete trainer with pushbuttons, switches, relays, LEDs and power supply.

     
 

Not only Educational But  Real

These PLCs are used for many multinationals. Anyone or any educational center can take his application to the real world.

 
 
                                                                                 
       

More Control Techniques

You can learn more technologies besides the classical ladder programming such as BASIC.

   

More New Topics

Could you imagine monitoring and controlling trough EXCEL ® ? You can also operate our PLCs over the Internet. Try robotics and telemetry.

     

More Learning Levels

Learners can begin to work with simple and smaller PLCs before using higher technologies or more expensive equipment.

           
                                                                                 
                     

Fixable Equipment

Yes, our training stations are fixable. We are aware that the learning process is associated to mistakes. In our PLCs all the chips are mounted on DIL Basis so you can remove/ replace defective chips for only few dollars.

     

Simulation Software Included

Yes, you can develop your application in your PC before downloading it to the PLC trainer itself.
Educators can put homeworks!
PLC programmers save time!

                     
                                                                                 
               

The continuous improvements in electronics have generated a good set of very small, very low cost, yet powerful PLCs.

One of the advantages is that in addition to real PLC programming the software tools allows simulation.

If you want to learn about PLC programming and ladder logic these PLC trainers are a very good and affordable start.

Note 1: Use a power supply of any voltage between 12 and 24VDC and connect it through the terminals of the trainer.

Note 2: Get a wall adapter of 15VAC output or a wall adapter with an output from 12 to 24VDC (positive to the center).

 
     
 

Comments from Professor Bo Barry. University of North Carolina:

“In reference to the proposal from Latin-tech, Inc, it should be noted that they are the only company providing ALL of the components required, and ALL of the capabilities required for the PLC trainers.

They are the only company providing PLCs with Ethernet & Internet connectivity at zero cost. Additionally the system, AS PROVIDED BY Latin Tech, are programmable in normal ladder logic, in BASIC, in C, and their unique software allows control & monitoring thru Microsoft EXCEL spreadsheets.

Their units are very popular both in industry (for use as PLCs and as trainers) and at many universities, including Old Dominion, Purdue, Kent State, State Univ of NY, and others.

A significant amount of time was spent researching this item, and it is felt that the systems as provided by Latin Tech, will not only completely satisfy our educational needs, but that they are by far the most economical systems providing all of the features available, including the items mentioned above.”

PLC Training Course Instructor Comments:


"I use TRiLOGI in the college classroom. I have each student download and install TRiLOGI on their home computer, and I then give them programming assignments to do at home. They individually write, run and debug their PLC programs, and then email their program files to me for testing and grading. Since TRiLOGI will simulate PLC operation off-line, each student is able to obtain hands-on programming and debugging experience without having to wait for their turn on an expensive laboratory PLC. The students enjoy using TRiLOGI because they can see their programs run at home without loading them into an actual PLC, it is easy to learn, and the cost for the off-line version is zero."

If you are an EDUCATOR looking  for the best way to provide a course on Programmable Logic Controllers we want to tell you that our trainers were designed with the following ideas in mind:


- Affordable costs, allowing you to acquire more training units with limited budgets. Our suggestion is that you have one or two students per PLC trainer.
- We cover more topics. Your students can do better and more sophisticated projects.
- You can allow the students to install the programming software in their PCs or Laptops and, since it has a complete simulation , they can work at home in practicing and studying by themselves or working on the homework you have previously assigned .
- You can impart more hands-on experience. Every class can be a different project that can be downloaded to the PLC trainer.
- You can provide a non biased education, avoiding focusing on particular or commercial brands but generic devices.  -When the students become professional they will thank you.
