This course is a continuation of the Introduction to Programmable Logic Controls (PLCs) course offered by Purdue MEP. Building on the programming techniques from the first course, this course introduces programs and tasks, process flow, user experience, and error handling. Appropriate industrial codes and standards will be used as support for the methods taught.
Manufacturing maintenance and engineering personnel who have completed the Purdue MEP course Introduction to PLCs.
