What will i learn?
  • The primary and overall objective of this course is to give a novice an understanding of PLC programming, ladder logic, and the inner workings of a standard HMI (Human-Machine Interface).
  • Students will explore basic, standard controls techniques for things like HOA control, level control, pump control, and (on at least an introductory level) PID control loops.
  • Students will be introduced to HMI development and given a general understanding of how an HMI program works.
  • By the end of this course, you will be able to create a PLC program from scratch.

Description

This course is designed to equip the novice with no prior PLC programming experience with the basic tools necessary to create a complete PLC program using ladder logic common to most current platforms.

Using the Rockwell software RSLogix 500 and FactoryTalk View Studio, we will be covering such topics as general controls, digital and analog IO, ladder logic programming, alarm / notification handling, HMI, emulation, best practices and more.

In the end, we will go through an entire, working PLC program and HMI line by line to solidify comprehension of the learning objectives.

Why Are There Four PLC Courses?

PLC I teaches you how to program with the focus on ladder logic, which is the most popular PLC programming language.  The goal is to teach you everything you need to know to make a PLC do what you want it to do.  You are also given all the software necessary to both CREATE and RUN your own programs live - right on your own computer.

PLC II forces you to take what you've learned and solve problem after progressively harder problem unassisted.  You get a spec and are told simply: "Make it work, and don't progress until you have."  After, you get to watch me solve each one as well.  By the end, you don't just know how to program - you are a PROGRAMMER.

PLC III gives you both knowledge and experience in FIVE different HMI / SCADA development environments.  By the end, you've created several COMPLETE visualization (screen) projects that you can actually run on your own computer (and SHOW PEOPLE in an interview) with no additional hardware.

PLC IV is only for the heavyweights.  This course teaches you how to program using all five IEC programming languages (plus one more) in multiple environments.  There are projects as well, so by the end, you have seen it all and DONE it all as well.  There won't be anything anybody can show you that you won't already be familiar with.

“My name is Neha Kulkarni, and I’m currently looking for a job in youth services. I have 10 years of experience working with youth agencies. I have a bachelor’s degree in outdoor education. I raise money, train leaders, and organize units. I have raised over $100,000 each of the last six years. I consider myself a good public speaker, and I have a good sense of humor. “Who do you know who works with youth?”

 

Not sure how to start an autobiography introduction?

Why not start from the very beginning? Writing about your early years is the easiest and most logical start for an autobiography.

I was born on a cold winter night, when even time seemed to stand still, in my native Bennington, Oklahoma. I do not remember much of my early childhood, but my mom said that I was a very active, curious, and communicative child. I would ask dozens of questions each minute, even without waiting for the answers. I suppose this is why my parents offered me books and educational movies as early as my third birthday.

Describe yourself in a few words. It does not necessarily need to be too creative. And do not forget to make a smooth transition from the previous part!

 

  • Fortunately, my thirst for knowledge did not come to an end when I was at school. I was passionate about history and science. This passion helped me gain profound knowledge in these areas, and I was admitted to the college of my dreams. Today, I am a student at a law school, and I feel very happy about it.
