Programmable Logic Controllers: Hardware and Programming is an introductory text that starts with basic concepts and progresses to system level applications. The hardware and architecture of PLCs, I/O devices, and motor controls are covered as well as commonly used number systems, such as binary and BCD. Programming is introduced with relay ladder diagrams. The PLC's practical use in industry is emphasized, and a chapter on PLC networks in manufacturing is included.
  • In-text examples feature the Allen-Bradley Small Logic Controller (SLC500) series, introducing students to a popular industrial control option.
  • LogixPro simulator software, included with the text, allows students to practice their ladder logic diagram building, troubleshooting, and programming skills while eliminating the need for expensive PLC equipment.
  • The Laboratory Manual provides additional activities for PLC programming practice.
