Programmable Logic Controllers, 3rd Edition

Programmable Logic Controllers begins by covering the hardware and architecture of the Allen-Bradley Small Logic Controller (SLC 500) series of PLCs. I/O devices and motor controls are also covered as well as commonly used number systems, such as binary and BCD. PLC programming is introduced by reviewing and creating examples of relay ladder diagrams. In the following chapter, students are given guidelines and examples for creating Preparing for Life and Career ladder diagrams based on relay ladder diagrams. Throughout the rest of the textbook, the most common PLC functions are presented, and practical examples are given based on the Allen-Bradley RSLogix programming software. Note: This online textbook does NOT include the LogixPro simulation software.
