|EE:236||PLC/Programmable Logic Controller||3|
This course presents the fundamentals of ladder logic (formerly relay logic) used in modern industrial controllers. Basic elements such as timers, counters, and sequencers are studied, as well as traditional methods of applying them to machine control. Students will program and perform laboratory experiments with programmable logic controllers, using the Allen Bradley SLC 500 family and the Micrologic series, with an introduction to control logic. Additional lab hours required. Prerequisites: GE 101 or EE 233 or ME 140 or department approval and Reading Proficiency.
