Description

Who is the course for?
The aim of this module is to provide an introduction to programmable logic controller concepts and their applications in engineering. It focuses on the design characteristics and internal architecture of programmable logic control systems, the signals which are used and the programming techniques, giving students the opportunity to produce and demonstrate a programme for a programmable logic device.

What will I study?

Investigate the design and operational characteristics of programmable logic controllers
• describe the design characteristics of typical programmable logic devices
• describe different types of input and output device
• describe the types of communication…
