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.
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.
