In Programmable Logic Controllers: How They Work and How to Make Them Work for You , you'll learn ...

  • The working parts of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and how they interact
  • Different types and functions of input/output (I/O) devices
  • PLC circuit wiring basics
  • How to program a PLC simulator to perform basic functions


Since their invention in 1968, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have become ubiquitous in industry throughout the world. For example, car manufacturers use PLCs to control machinery on factory assembly lines and oil platforms use PLCs to control complicated oil and gas separation processes. In this interactive webinar, you will learn the basics of how PLCs work and how to program them. You will also learn how you can use low-cost simulators to further hone your PLC programming skills in your own office.

With several practical examples and simulations, this webinar presents an excellent overview of PLCs for electrical, mechanical, process, and control systems engineers who work with automation of industrial processes. No prior knowledge of PLCs or control systems is required to benefit from this webinar.

Special Note: Course IC-3002 and course IC-3011W are alternate presentations of the same course material. Therefore, only one version, either the course or webinar, can be taken during a renewal cycle. If you have any questions regarding course eligibility, please contact our Customer Service Team.
