Curriculum

The unit of instruction covers a wide range of topics. It begins with an overview of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and the different modules which comprise themsuch as the processor, input/output modules, and power supply. Then it delves into the different types of programming logic and the implementation of bit instructions. The module then progresses to control of pneumatic air cylinders and includes the use of repeat cycles and memory in PLCs. The next step covers counters and timers in PLCs, followed by Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and more advanced HMIs.

We have details labs and videos to help you and your learners retain more, understand more and have fun along the way!
