Requirements

The purpose of this course is to cover the essentials you’ll need to know to get started with any PLC system.The objective is to guide you about what you need to learn regardless of what PLC system you are working with.

PLC is a key player in industrial automation. So if you want to understand how a programmable logic controller works and learn how it should be programmed, this course is for you.

Something that highlights this program from other similar courses is its independence from any PLC brand and model.

The focus would be on understanding the fundamentals of PLC systems. That includes:

– Standards

– Hardware components,

– Program elements and environment

– Software tools and common practices

Once you’ve learned these fundamentals, It doesn’t matter whatever PLC brand and model you work with.

The hardware for PLCs is largely the same. The main distinction is in the software.Some PLC vendors provide an easy-to-use software tool, while others are less so, and you may end up spending more time trying to figure out how to do things.

By the end of this course, you’ll have a decent idea of what a standard PLC system has to offer in terms of hardware and software and you will be ready to start learning a specific PLC platform.
