ACIM 5030 - Advanced Programmable Logic Controllers and Human Machine Interfaces in Manufacturing

AutomatedControls Instal&Maint Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

The programmable logic controllers (PLCs) course will build on principles that were introduced in the Introduction to programmable logic controllers course (ACIM 5010). PLCs are most commonly encountered in a wide variety of automated control systems in manufacturing, conveying, transportation, and process control. Human-machine interfaces (touchscreen panels) as PLC system peripherals provide system status and operator control capabilities. Topics covered include installation, interfacing, communications, monitoring, troubleshooting and testing, and safety. Students will make power, signal, and communication connections for the PLC and HMI, and interpret and write programs for controlling manufacturing processes and displaying the status of automated systems.
