Title - PLC Trainer
Engineering - PLC Trainer
This training system offers a platform that enables students to perform a comprehensive range of PLC programming tasks using a Siemens controller and a rotating disc sorting application. We also include our unique software simulation of the trainer in the package to help introduce the basic concepts of PLCs and ladder logic.

This enables the whole class to carry out simulated PLC control task activities at the same time. Using this software, groups of students create ladder logic programs to control devices on the trainer using a graphical-based programmable logic control (PLC) editor.

These programs can be used to control either the hardware or the simulator. Used in this mode, only a simple USB connection is required to enable the ladder logic software to control the hardware unit.

Typical Topics Include:
  • Introduction to PLCs
  • Relays and Relay Ladder Logic
  • Introduction to Ladder Logic Programming
  • Basic Programming Instructions
  • Latches and Master Control Reset (MCR) Instructions
  • Timers
  • Counters and Shift Registers
  • Sequencers
  • Programming the Complete System
Typical Practical Activities Include:
  • Creating a program that will automatically sort parts based upon the presence of a hole
  • Debugging and running control programs on a remote Siemens PLC
  • Troubleshooting an industrial control system
  • Using the Siemens Step 7 remote programming software
  • Downloading control programs to a remote Siemens PLC
