Overview

This is the introduction to PLCs for which baffled students, technicians and managers have been waiting. In this straightforward guide Bill Bolton has kept the maths to a minimum, avoided detailed programming instructions and presented the subject in a way that is not device-specific.

Having read this book you should be able to:

  • Identify the main design characteristics and internal architecture of PLCs
  • Describe and identify the characteristics of commonly used input and output devices
  • Explain the processing of inputs and outputs by PLCs
  • Describe communication links involved with control systems
  • Develop ladder programs for the logic functions AND, OR, NOR, NAND, NOT and XOR
  • Develop ladder programs involving internal relays, timers, counters, shift registers, sequencers and data handling
  • Identify methods used for testing and debugging
