This course has been created for the users who wants quick learning on real time industrial application like Sorting, Packaging, , We have used high end software like FACTORY I/O and CONNECT I/O to explain PLC Logics.

Factory I/O is the world's first flexible 3D simulation software that takes the simulation of industrial systems to a new level. With state-of-the-art graphics, physics and dynamic sound, Factory I/O immerses users in a realistic 3D industrial environment . With this real time sandbox, users can edit pre-built industrial systems or build new ones. All systems are completely interactive and can be controlled by a wide range of technologies

Note: Student license has unlimited access to all drivers and the SDK, a .NET Framework 2.0 assembly, which enables inter-process communication (IPC) between FACTORY I/O and the user's own applications. With the Open (SDK), you can develop your own drivers and use CONNECT I/O.
