Our customers are raving about our easy to learn PLC Programming training series. If you are just looking to get a job in the Automation and Controls Engineering field or just get ahead in your skills, you’ve come to the right place.
We have many years of combined control system design and programming experience that we will be utilized to explain these lessons in a clear and concise manner.
In the first series of this training program we got you familiar with the basics of PLC Control Systems. We talked the about hardware, including power supplies and how the processor functions. We also talked about memory types, modules and their LED status lights, different I/O types and their use, and finally configuration.
In the second series of this training program we got right into programming. We discussed addressing and worked with many different instructions including flip flops, positive and negative edge detections, latched versus momentary, and many more. We also wrote some code for many common controls.
In this series, we begin by discussing the different timer types and write some universal code to use the timers under different scenarios.
We will introduce you to a program called “two handed control” which is a standard safety program for protecting operators in assembly plants.
The next lessons then introduce you to V13 of step 7. We chat about installation and requirements, creating projects, hardware configuration, and writing programs in the new software version.
Once we get you reacquainted with the programming environment, we will write a program that will combine many of the previously used instructions. We will have a discussion about normally opened and normally closed contacts and the use of them in your programs.
We’ll then introduce you to counters. Within those lessons, we will talk about custom counter presets, how to prevent counters from resetting on a power up, and how extend the length a timer can time using a combination of counters and timers.
And finally, we will discuss how test your program in the Single Scan mode.
This series is abundant in programming instruction and knowledge for frequently used controls. This third installment of comprehensive training courses will give you a leg up on your competition and help you to gain the knowledge you desire to pursue a profession as an Automation and Controls Engineer.
