    An excellent PLC book with real industrial examples. It covers

    An excellent PLC book with real industrial examples. It covers the new Siemens S7-1200 platform with easy to follow hands-on steps. I like the analog and HMI coverage.
    The book web site is outstanding with unique simulators making concepts of timers, motor control, and many others simple and clear. HW solutions and detailed laboratory projects implementation are also available on the site.
