Course Description

Course Description

The Programmable Logic Controllers Technician (PLC) Certificate program provides the basic technical skills and knowledge necessary to work with programmable logic control systems found typically in an industrial/manufacturing environment. The program covers the operation of various PLC control systems including both discrete and analog control devices.

The simulation software, PLCLogix 500, that is included with the program, simulates the Rockwell Logix 500 series of PLCs. PLCLogix 500 simulation software essentially converts your computer into a virtual PLC and allows you to run, verify and debug ladder logic programs based on the Allen-Bradley RSLogix 500 format. PLCLogix 500 allows you to familiarize yourself with many different features associated with Allen-Bradley PLCs, including timers, counters, sequencers, and math functions. Design ladder logic programs, perform tests and simulate the operation of real-world components, including motors, solenoid valves and a wide variety of other discrete and analog I/O devices. The simulations software includes approximately 250 pre-built lab projects; including 50 lab projects presented in eleven "real world" 3D PLC application environments.
