Editorial Reviews
The complete reference for PLC programming. This book presents a comprehensive treatment of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) with an emphasis on program design. This text stresses an organized approach to developing PLC programs – “Given a set of operational specifications, how does one develop the PLC program?” This book develops the design process: the tasks involved, breaking the program into manageable pieces, standard code for the various parts, and handling the sequential parts of the problem. Throughout, the book contains example problems demonstrating good design practice and culminates in two full-length case studies. Due to its popularity, ladder logic is employed in the majority of the text. However, the text also comprehensively covers the other four IEC 61131-3 languages: function block diagram, structured text, instruction list, and sequential function chart. These languages are covered for five PLCs: Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, Allen-Bradley PLC-5/SLC-500, Modicon Quantum/Momentum, Siemens S7, and GE Fanuc. The main topics of this text are: 1. PLC programming languages (with emphasis on IEC 61131-3) 2. Structured approach to sequential problems 3. Good program design practice 4. Troubleshooting techniques 5. PID control 6. Sensors and actuators 7. Factory communication networks 8. Human-machine interface (HMI) Most chapters include student problems.
