This is the introduction to PLCs for which baffled students, technicians and managers have been waiting. In this straightforward, easy-to-read guide, Bill Bolton has kept the maths to a minimum, avoided detailed programming instructions and presented the subject in a way that is not device specific - increasing its applicability to courses in electronics and control systems. Having read this book, you should be able to: * Identify the main design characteristics and internal architecture of PLCs. * Describe and identify the characteristics of commonly used input and output devices. * Explain the processing of inputs and outputs of PLCs. * Describe communication links involved with control systems. * Develop ladder programs for the logic functions AND, OR, NOR, NAND, NOT and XOR. * Demonstrate use of internal relays, timers, counters, shift registers, sequencers and data handling. * Identify fail/safe methods. * Identify methods used for fault diagnosis, testing and debugging programs. The third edition has been expanded to contain new material on fail / safe operating conditions, Sequential Function Charts, floating point numbers and dummy rungs, with discussion of commercial PLCs. There is also extended coverage on the programming of PLCs for fault diagnosis, as well as distributed systems and program documentation. Each chapter is followed with a Problems section, for students to put the theory they have learnt into practice. Appendices contain further problems, and answers to all questions from each chapter are included at the back of the book. * New edition expanded to cover safety - a key aspect of PLC use * Further problems included at the end of each chapter, with a complete set of answers given at the back of the book * Presentation is not device-specific, maximising applicability to a range of courses in electronics and control systems

A programmable logic controllers (PLC) is a real-time system optimized for use in severe conditions such as high/low temperatures or an environment with excessive electrical noise. This control technology is designed to have multiple interfaces (I/Os) to connect and control multiple mechatronic devices such as sensors and actuators. Programmable Logic Controllers, Fifth Edition, continues to be a straight forward, easy-to-read book that presents the principles of PLCs while not tying itself to one vendor or another. Extensive examples and chapter ending problems utilize several popular PLCs currently on the market highlighting understanding of fundamentals that can be used no matter the specific technology. Ladder programming is highlighted throughout with detailed coverage of design characteristics, development of functional blocks, instruction lists, and structured text. Methods for fault diagnosis, testing and debugging are also discussed. This edition has been enhanced with new material on I/Os, logic, and protocols and networking. For the UK audience only: This book is fully aligned with BTEC Higher National requirements. *New material on combinational logic, sequential logic, I/Os, and protocols and networking *More worked examples throughout with more chapter-ending problems *As always, the book is vendor agnostic allowing for general concepts and fundamentals to be taught and applied to several controllers
