This is a very clearly written, accurate and well-illustrated, this high quality textbook. It is an excellent resource to teach yourself the fundamentals of PLCs. Mr. It has even photographs and descriptions of the inner workings of commonly used I/O devices, which is especially helpful for novices. Based on A-B SLC500 series and their RS LOGIX programming software, it covers enough ground to enable technicians to understand how they work, how to troubleshoot I/O problems, understand, modify and or even originate programs found in typical industrial applications.
The LogixPro PLC simulator lab exercise manual (written by the same author) gives you the ability to write, test and debug programs using the RS LOGIX instruction set and programming interface–in fact it’s very close to the real deal
