This course will introduce the programmable logic controller, how it is structured and programmed, and how it is applied to control machine/process systems. Emphasis will be placed on learning the common instructions and symbols used in PLC programs and how to read and interpret these to determine faults in a malfunctioning system. Programmable logic controllers will be used to control various processes.
- This course is open to Mechatronics, Power Plant Technology, and Electric Utility Technology majors only. Other students may be admitted with coordinator consent.
