Programmable Logic Controllers: Hardware and Programming provides an introduction to PLCs and their applications in process and industrial control systems. The text begins with basic hardware and programming concepts and then progresses to system-level applications.
To prepare technicians to meet the needs of industry, the author has taken a highly practical approach, covering PLC applications, maintenance, testing, and troubleshooting.
Illustrations and examples help to explain abstract concepts, and review questions at the end of each chapter allow students to practice what they have learned.
The thoroughly updated new edition includes a new chapter on RSLogix5000 programming and expanded coverage of HMI (human machine interface) applications.
For additional hands-on learning, a Lab Manual is available.
