PLC Hardware - Intro to PLCs

This program covers the essentials of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) from their origins and structure to installation practices and advanced topics like networking and analog signal handling. Ideal for technicians seeking efficient control system knowledge.


This training program includes the following 4 courses:

Course 1: Overview of Control Systems

This is an introduction to the origins, and purpose of Programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Estimated Duration: 40 minutes   

Course 2: PLC Structure and Organization

This is an introductory overview of the major components of a programmable logic controller (PLC), including the power supply, central processing unit (CPU), memory, input devices, output devices, and status indicators. It also explains how these components are structured within the PLC. Estimated Duration: 60 minutes
