IE302 Control Systems and PLC’s

3 Semester Credit Hours

Control of industrial processes is often the function of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). Number systems and digital logic functions necessary to understand PLC operation and programming will be introduced. Students will learn the functions of the PLC and how to input programs into the PLC. The types of process control, as well as analog, digital, and electromechanical controllers, are introduced. Applications requiring logic circuits, counting circuits and timer circuits are presented. Lab projects are assigned to enhance understanding PLC control. Course contains 30 clock hours of lecture (2 semester credit hours) and 30 clock hours of lab (1 semester credit hour). Prerequisite: IE301
