EET-135 - Programmable Logic Controller 1 (PLCs 1)

2 credits
Control systems for electric motors are vital for the proper performance and protection of modern plant equipment. The programmable logic controller or PLC replaced many of the older relaying type logic systems; for this reason, this course deals only with programming of a modern PLC. Basic relay type logic is required for this course since the PLC will be used as a tool to simulate the older style relaying circuit. The laboratory associated with this course will be necessary for the complete understanding of programming the PLC and how a PLC interfaces with the modern industrial plant control systems.

Prerequisite(s): Students are expected to have basic computer skills. 

Corequisite(s): EET-135L  

Course previously known as: ELEC-350
