IMTMA Training Centre

Hands-on training in PLC Programming and Networking

Date : 23 to 25 May, 2018

@ Bangalore

Last date for registration 16 May 2018


Programmable Logic controller (PLC) represents a key driver in automation, production & process planning in the manufacturing industry. Many industries of today, including packaging, pharmaceuticals, refineries, mines, machine shops, power plants and food industries use PLC systems for automation of their machinery to produce more, consistently, quickly and efficiently.

Modern PLC systems can be connected to data networks and interfaced with other automation control devices. However, for improvement / modification of the automation system, correct interpretation of the Logics and changes need to be made to the PLC program as and when required.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a 3 day Hands-on training programme in PLC Programming & Networking on 23 - 25 May 2018 at Bangalore. This course provides the skills necessary to understand how typical modern industrial PLC programs work, how to make changes to existing programs and how to create small programs from scratch.

  • Basic concepts of PLC -Types of PLCs and HMI, Applications areas with examples, recent trend in PLC,
  • PLC Block Diagram, function of CPU, I/O interface, internal memory, Input image memory, Output Image
    memory, PLC SCAN, basic examples of PLC SCAN like start stop logic, etc.
  • PLC Hardware: Different types of CPUs, Base racks, Extension racks, power supply modules, etc.
  • Discrete Input / output modules, interfacing with field devices, concept of Sourcing & Sinking, I/O addressing
  • PLC Programming : Relay based instructions, Timers and counters, Data Manipulation and other advanced instructions
  • Analog Input / output modules: interface of Analog Devices with PLC
  • Industrial Networking : Device level and Control level
  • Hands-on practice in simulators and Mitsubishi Q series PLC training racks
