Are you looking for a way to sharpen those PLC Programming skills? Well, look no further as we got you covered. This is our sixth set of tutorials in our PLC Programming training series.

If you have used our five previous courses, you know that we are offering you a foundation of skills that are essential in advancing your career. If you have not and are looking to obtain the skills needed to acquire a position as an Automation and Controls Engineer, make your way to the beginning of this series and begin your instruction with our easy and logical learning informational videos.

Here is a recap of the lessons offered within our first five sets of tutorials.
Series one helped to familiarize you with the basics of PLC Control Systems. These lessons contained information about hardware, including power supplies and how the processor functions. Also within this series we discussed memory types, modules and their LED status lights, different I/O types and their configuration.
Series two jumped right into getting you started with your first program. We detailed addressing and then using many different instructions including flip flops, positive and negative edge detections, latched versus momentary, and many more. We wrote some basic code for may be used for many common control functions.
Series three delved deeper into programming while writing code using different timer types, “two handed control”, counters, normally opened and normally closed contacts and much, much more. The lessons then introduced you to V13 of step 7. We talk about installation requirements, creating projects, hardware configuration, and writing programs in the new software version.

Series four had us discussing comparator instructions and the differences between the many data types. We wrote programs that energized an output when multiple inputs are true at once, another that will be of benefit when extended timing is needed. We worked with some math instructions, conversion instructions, code that alarms when a sensor is out of range. We explained Decimal, Binary, and BCD numbers, and finished with a work around for the counter maximum count restriction.

Series five had you working with a new programming environment called Factory I/O. Within that 3D environment, we had a miniseries of lessons on part counting. We worked with converting an integer value to a real value, rounding a number, converting a real value to an integer value, using the move instruction, and controlling multiple outputs with a single switch.

Series six continues where five left off. We start with the powerful Shift instruction. First up is the shift right integer, followed by shift right double integer. When then work with the shift right word and double word instructions. Using the shift instruction, we have a miniseries about turning on PLC outputs in a sequential order. After the shift rights, we move on to shift lefts and finally the rotate word instructions.

We then introduce you to logic gates. These are the AND, OR, XOR, and INVERT instructions in PLC programming. We write some word logic operations code, use the invert to change the sign of a value, demonstrate data masking, and finally, compare analog signals using the XOR instruction.

If you missed any of these series, be sure to go back and purchase those in order to further your understanding of the PLC Programming concepts we have discussed.
