Programmable Logic Controllers
This course covers the logic theory and application of programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The material focuses on the design and development of programming algorithms used to interact with motors, sensors, switches, networks, valves, relays, and hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
The focus is on Allen Bradley and Rockwell Automation software although Siemens PLCs will be explained as well. RSLogix software will be used along with LogixPro for simulation purposes.
- Combinational and Sequential Logic Design basics
- Analog and digital input/output
- State Diagrams and Sequential Function Charts
- Ladder Logic Programming
- Data Manipulation
- Proportional, Integral, Derivative (PID) Control
- Motor controlling, valves sequencing, and Human Machine Interface
Course Learning Outcomes:
- Design and implement fully working Ladder Logic code
- Build a solution working with design requirements
- Work with RSLogix and become familiar with other software environments including Omron and Siemens
Course Typically Offered: Online in Winter and Summer quarters.
Prerequisites: Any introductory programming course.
Next steps: Upon completion, consider additional coursework in our Engineering department such as Research Methods in Human-Robotics Interaction
