We’ve done it again. We have produced our fourth set of tutorials in our PLC Programming training series. As always, we are using our tried and true method of an easy learning approach to bring you yet another great collection of informational training videos to increase your programming skills.
We use our many years of combined control system design and programming experience to present these lessons in a logical learning approach.
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 the third series of this training program we continued with programming as we discussed different timer types, wrote some code using timers that was universal enough to use in different scenarios, discussed “two handed control”, talked about V13 of step 7. We also discussed counters, normally opened and normally closed contacts and much, much more.
In this fourth series, we start off discussing comparator instructions which are the equals, less than, greater than type instructions and then jump right into demonstrating the differences of the many data types.
We’ll then show you a program that will energize an output when multiple inputs are true at once. We will also go into detail about how to write programs that will work for extended timing, getting around the maximum value that may be entered into timing instructions.
Following those tutorials, we introduce you to some math instructions, discuss some conversion instructions, write a program that will alarm when one of our turbine temperature sensors is out of range, explain Decimal, Binary, and BCD numbers, and finish off with another great work around for the counter maximum count restriction.
We have produced another great set of tutorials with many great programming examples that will help you to develop a base of programs for many of your future needs.
This fourth course of wide-ranging tutorials is just what you need to take your skills to the next level. That Automation and Controls Engineer title is getting ever closer.
