This class will introduce the fundamentals of Programmable
Logic Controller (PLC) operations, including symbology and programming
techniques. PLC hardware and data structures will be presented. Methods of
using the programming interface to troubleshoot applications will be
emphasized. The student will write, enter, and execute application programs
using the programmable controllers and Human Machine Interface (HMI). The use
of the Robotics Lab equipment will give the student practical programming and
troubleshooting skills used in the maintenance of automated systems.
