Programmable Logic Controllers

IEP200 - 16.00 Hours

Description

The Programmable Logic Controller training course is an interactive two-day course designed to prepare trainees to be successful in their mechanical/technical role. This is an introductory course to familiarize participants with the operation of programmable logic controllers (PLC's) and their use in machine control, energy management, and other industrial and facility applications. Participants will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge of programmable logic controller hardware and ladder logic to solve system problems. This generic approach to PLC's helps students understand how they function and are programmed and to apply them in control applications. Students use a personal computer (PC) and PLC programming software to program a PLC on a TEEX trainer and computer to learn and develop their skills by hands-on experiences.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Knowledge Engineering at (800) 541-7149 or ke@teex.tamu.edu.
