EET 475 Intermediate Programmable Logic Controllers (3)

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are the workhorse of the automation and process control industry. Their rugged design and ease of programming enables PLCs to operate in almost any manufacturing environment. PLCs are employed wherever measurement equipment and computers are needed to control large electrical equipment such as motors and actuators. In this course, students apply their knowledge of basic PLC programming to see how the PLC can be used to communicate with other equipment, sense and react to external stimuli, and provide both open loop and closed loop system control.
