Unit Name: Programmable Logic Controller

Description: The PLC course focuses on the concept of hardware and software together with a practical hands-on introduction to uses, hardware configuration, uploading/downloading programmes, fault-finding and troubleshooting. All topics are illustrated through practical exercises on training simulators using the various PLC series for practical application. All leading organizations in various industries employ this technology. The PLC development background, introduction to PLC architecture, differences between relay-based system and PLC-based systems, differences between PC based and PLC-based systems, advantages of PLC\\\\\\\'s, logical flow concept, scan time information, PLC addressing concept, creating new projects in various PLC software, symbol table, force fable (for forcing output various variables), developing The ladder diagram in various PLC software, information-oriented with MPI cable adapter communication cable, the purpose of MPI and rs232, programming cable, maintenance practices, troubleshooting actual problems, advanced diagnostics, documentation and backup of PLC programmes. The programme will as well have several industrial processes simulations.
