PLC Programming From Scratch (PLC I)
This course is designed to equip the novice with no previous PLC programming experience with the basic tools necessary to create a complete PLC program using ladder logic common to most current platforms.
Using Rockwell RSLogix 500 software and FactoryTalk View Studio, we will cover topics such as general controls, digital and analog I / O, ladder logic programming, alarm / notification management, HMI, emulation, best practices and more.
Ultimately, we will go through a complete and functional PLC program and HMI line by line to solidify the understanding of the learning objectives.
Why are you teaching five PLC courses on PLC Dojo?
This course, PLC I (PLC Fundamentals), teaches you to program with an emphasis on ladder logic, which is the most popular PLC programming language. The goal is to teach you everything you need to know for an automaton to do what you want it to do. You also have all the software you need to CREATE and RUN your own live programs – right on your own computer. For some people, that’s all they really need.
But for people who really want to master API programming, they have the option of continuing with me in advanced hardware.
PLC II (Applied Logic) forces you to take what you have learned and fix the problem after an increasingly difficult problem without assistance. You get a spec and you’re just told, “Make it work, and don’t progress until you’ve done it.” Then you can watch me solve each one as well. In the end, you don’t just know how to program – you are a PROGRAMMER.
PLC III (Process Visualization) gives you both knowledge and experience in FIVE different HMI / SCADA development environments. In the end, you’ve created several COMPLETE visualization (screen) projects that you can actually run on your own computer (and SHOW PEOPLE in an interview) without additional hardware.
PLC IV (IEC Paradigms) is only for heavy vehicles. This course teaches you how to program using the five IEC programming languages (plus one more) in multiple environments. There are also projects, so by the end you have seen it all and DONE it all too. No one will be able to show you anything that you don’t already know.
PLC V (TIA Portal Master Project) is the culmination of everything. In this course, you will program an entire power plant using the five API programming languages (in PARALLEL!) With a complete HMI. It’s a massive and complex project that really showcases your talents in an interview!
By the end of this course, you will be able to create an API program from scratch.
The main and overall objective of this course is to give a novice an understanding of PLC programming, ladder logic and the inner workings of a standard HMI (human machine interface).
Students will learn the difference between digital and analog signals and how to integrate them into a PLC, process them and return them.
Students will be familiar enough with a sufficient variety of ladder logic instructions to create a complete PLC program from scratch.
Students will explore basic standard control techniques for things like HOA control, level control, pump control, and (at least at an introductory level) PID control loops.
Students will develop an understanding of programming alarms and notifications, as well as considerations relevant to safety and operator usability.
Students will be introduced to HMI development and have a general understanding of how an HMI program works.
