Description

NO EXPENSIVE HARDWARE NEEDED!
All you will need is a windows10 computer with a MINIMUM DISPLAY RESOLUTION OF 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) / or an android device.
In this course you will learn how to program PLCs with ladder logic by using the ‘PLC ladder simulator 2’ software application.
The software simulates the hardware inputs & outputs of a PLC which allows you to write and fully test your own PLC programs right there on your screen.
As well as learning all the functions available to you in the free version of the simulator, together we will construct and test real world PLC programs – everything that I do on my screen, you will do on your screen too!   

In this course you will learn about:
Scan cycles
Creating tags
Functions
Counters
Timers
Bit shifters
Data types
Binary code
Sequencing
Digital inputs & outputs
Analog inputs & outputs
Scaling
Subroutines

And you will construct PLC programs to control stuff like:
Pump stages
Tank levels
Filling lines
Traffic lights
Room temperatures

The course starts off at a beginner level, we will firstly download the software and take a look at our very first PLC program, the early stages of the course will teach you about what ladder logic is and how it works in conjunction with PLC scan cycles.
After we have learnt the basics we will start to develop more complex programs. Each chapter will introduce new concepts and functions that we will use to make programs for things like tank levels and timed motor outputs.
Once we really start to get cooking we will build and simulate programs to control the traffic lights of an intersection and the temperature of chocolate in a tank. mmmmmmm!
By the end of the course your ladder logic knowledge will be solid and you will be able to write your own PLC programs from scratch.
So if you want to learn PLC programming without needing any special hardware then this is the course for you.

You will learn

✓ Understand how PLCs work.
✓ Learn how to program PLCs with ladder logic.
✓ Learn how to build and test your own PLC programs from scratch.

Requirements

• You will need a windows10 computer with a MINIMUM DISPLAY RESOLUTION OF 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
• You will need the ‘PLC ladder simulator 2’ software application. Download instructions will be given in the course.
• Knowing the difference between ‘Normally Open’ and ‘Normally Closed’ would be beneficial but not crucial.
• Some basic knowledge of PLCs (programmable logic controllers) would be helpful but not critical.

This course is for

• Anyone interested in PLC programming with ladder logic.
• Anyone interested in simulating PLC programs without the need for hardware.
• People that already have some ladder logic knowledge that wish to learn more.
• People that want to learn the subject in an interactive and fun way.

Electrical Controls Instructor
Hi
Ok, I’m not a real wizard but I am a real wiring expert!
I specialise in Electrical Controls and have worked at the top universities in Australia, including Melbourne University, Monash University, RMIT and La Trobe University. I have also done specialist controls work at The Department of Defence –  Science and Technology Centre and on the Melbourne Public Transportation Network.
My experience in controls covers PLCs, HVAC, Electromechanical Controls, Instrumentation and Pneumatics.
In my spare time I like to tinker with vintage hi-fi gear, play guitar, walk the dog and work on my jump shot.
