The "brains" behind many automated processes, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are incredibly sophisticated and widely used in industry today. Manufacturers use PLCs when they need flexible yet precise electrical control over any range of processes that coordinate inputs and outputs.
The course teaches principles of industrial systems control and automation using Allen Bradley PLC. The material in this course places emphasis on both automated manufacturing and oil/gas industries. Hardware and software associated with system modeling are discussed. Topics on sensors, signal conditioning, and ladder logic and computer integrated manufacturing are introduced
