So What is a PLC?

A programmable logic controller, also called a PLC or programmable controller, is a computer-type device used to control equipment in an industrial facility. The kinds of equipment that PLCs can control are as varied as industrial facilities themselves. Conveyor systems, food processing machinery, auto assembly lines…you name it and there’s probably a PLC out there controlling it.

What is this PLC Course about?

This innovative PLC online training, is addressed to all automation enthusiasts. The tutorial is based on Siemen's LOGO! 12/24 RC and Siemens S7-1200. If you are thinking about working in automation industry, you have to deal with PLCs. If you work or study, and wondering if- and how - to start your adventure with PLC, see our course! All over the world, the continuing development of industrial automation makes PLC training a good investment.

From the Autors:

"We have a few years' experience working with various programming systems used in industrial automation, from PLC to visualization systems (SCADA)... It was our intention to do this course based on practical examples, and to relate it to what I see in my work. It means introducing a measure of problem-solving to the tutorials, along with the knowledge you'll need to write the programs we will work on. We hope my course will be a good introduction to the fascinating world of logical controllers..."
