Programmable Logic Controllers

This course presents the fundamentals of ladder logic (or relay logic) used on modern industrial controllers. Basic elements such as timers, counters, and sequences are studied, as well as traditional methods of applying them to machine control. Students will program and perform laboratory experiments with programmable logic controllers, such as the Allen Bradley SLC-100 controllers and interface them to various input and output devices. An industrial robot also is available in class for lab experiments. Use of IBM/Allen Bradley personal computer interface software will be covered as well. Additional lab hours required. Prerequisites: ME 140 recommended. Dates listed correspond with credit term. Available for credit as ME 211 551.
