I’ve found that before beginning to teach PLC courses I often had to teach the students how to think more like a programmer than like an electrician.

It also comes with a lab manual and a copy of the LogixPro simulator software.

I hated so much AB: The local college here also uses the book by Mr. To exclude a word, precede it with a “-“, as follows: About 15 years ago Reliance was lot more advanced, and easier to use.

The area of interest that is hard for me to find without having to expense myself is PID control concepts. By Mark Miller on 5 April, – 1: We have selected “Programmable Logic Controllers” by Frank Petruzella for the next class and it looks more promising. In that time I have been unable to find a controls book that got beyond covering the basic principles. Select the categories for which you would like to see messages displayed Far better than the book I ditched.

Although this is far from being a reality, it can save alot of time troubleshooting from within a PLC program when the vast majority problems occur because of influences external to the PLC.

A good programming book should give project structuring examples.

Since then I have been turning it into written chapters, and I am over half way done. Hope this helps, John.

Some entreprises in North America adopted it. This is because I would rather go deeply into one processor, than lightly brush over all others. Where do they stand today?

The best examples of programming i have seen to date all come from engineers with a maintenance background.

The thing that I’ve found most lacking is the lack of knowledge of the basics of good programming. You must be a Control.

In my experience there is no field device that cannot fail, in fact I have found that most do and probably will fail. I must be able to obtain a sample copy for evaluation. Since the messes can get really big if a failed input is not handled I now make it a point to take the time to consider “How is this thing going to break ie. I have seen all system’s birth date. Emphasis should also be made on program comments and labelling!! No one educated me. But he needs to know as well what the system can not do in the future.


Bradley Timm South Africa. I believe that the detected failure of any action or process needs to be acted on in a safe manner to protect personnel, the machine, and the product quality. I would also prefer that the text be based more on the system and functionality, rather than strictly programming. If the program is well structured, it makes fault finding that much easier for maintenance personnel. In the past 5 years this fact has led to some rather unpleastant adventures.

Over the past 6 years I have taught courses on PLC based control systems. Not to mention they can continue using it at home during and after the course is over.

A formal and documented verification and testing procedure is essential. It seemed to work fairly well when I was taking classes there.
