EET2010 Intro to Programmable Controllers

This course starts from the review of control systems such as relay logic control before the advent of PLC. The students will then be introduced to the fundamentals of PLC addressing, inputs and outputs configuration and interfacing to external devices such as switches, pushbuttons and motor starters etc. Basic programming skills are another important topic to be taught in this course. Various functions such as latch/ unlatch, timers and counters will be introduced. Hands- on labs are integrated in the course in which the students will design, construct, load, and run programs, simulating real applications such as motor reverse, seal-in, timed process and counters.
