Description
TutorialBay presents PLC Course the ultimate PLC training experience to learn PLC programming. Our video tutorials will bring you right into the world of PLC explaining what you need to know to understand the fundamentals. This PLC course is a step-by-step introduction to controllers, built on a everyday experience of a practicing automation experts! 

So What is a PLC?

A programmable logic controller, also called a PLC or programmable controller, is a computer-type device used to control equipment in an industrial facility. The kinds of equipment that PLCs can control are as varied as industrial facilities themselves. Conveyor systems, food processing machinery, auto assembly lines…you name it and there’s probably a PLC out there controlling it.

What is this PLC Course about?

This innovative PLC online training, is addressed to all automation enthusiasts. The tutorial is based on Siemen's LOGO! 12/24 RC and Siemens S7-1200. If you are thinking about working in automation industry, you have to deal with PLCs. If you work or study, and wondering if- and how - to start your adventure with PLC, see our course! All over the world, the continuing development of industrial automation makes PLC training a good investment.

What does this course teach?

From the Autors:
"We have a few years' experience working with various programming systems used in industrial automation, from PLC to visualization systems (SCADA)... It was our intention to do this course based on practical examples, and to relate it to what I see in my work. It means introducing a measure of problem-solving to the tutorials, along with the knowledge you'll need to write the programs we will work on. We hope my course will be a good introduction to the fascinating world of logical controllers..."

SIEMENS LOGO! Basics you need to know
5 Lectures 38:03

In this lesson you will learn the basics of LOGO! Soft Comfort, a software we will use to program our LOGO! Soft Comfort is a Windows application, with intuitive interface and a number of internal functions to facilitate programming for industrial automation and buildings, so learning it should be an easy process. We will end this part with the first program.

Getting to know LOGO Interface
04:23

After creating our first program, we will upload it to the PLC and test it in a simulation mode.

Uploading your first program to a PLC
02:31

In this tutorial you will learn how to use basic functions AND and OR, and how to add simple conditions for determining when a given output is actuated in the program.

Preview 06:48

After discussing the basic programming functions, it is time for a practical example. We will write a program that controls lighting in the stairway. When programming, you will utilize the functions you have learned so far, as well as learn how to use timers.

In this final project we will write a program for an automatic gate system. We will also add a functionality which will allow us to control the lighting in the driveway, as well as the signaling blinking lights above the gate. Furthermore, we will work with sensors and motion detectors, so that if a person or an object appears in the way of the gate, we will be able to stop it. The whole project is written in ladder logic and is a great introduction to graphical programming languages in PLC.
