Programmable Logic Controllers
Programming Methods and Applications
This book is designed to help readers develop a good general working knowledge of programmable controllers with concentration on relay ladder logic techniques and how PLC is connected to external components in an operating control system. The book uses real world programming problems that readers can solve on any available programmable controller or PLC simulator. Later chapters relate to more advanced subjects in machine controls making this a welcome addition to a personal technical reference library. KEY TOPCIS: The authors examine ladder diagram fundamentals, the programmable logic controller, fundamental PLC programming, advanced programming techniques, mnemonic programming code, wiring techniques, analog I/O, discrete position sensors, encoders, transducers, and advanced sensors, closed loop and PID control, motor controls, and system integrity and safety. For those involved in Electrical, Automation, Control, and Process Engineering.

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 jargon to a minimum, considered all the programming methods in the standard IEC 1131-3 – in particular ladder programming, and presented the subject in a way that is not device specific to ensure maximum applicability to courses in electronics and control systems.
Now in its fourth edition, this best-selling text has been expanded with increased coverage of industrial systems and PLCs and more consideration has been given to IEC 1131-3 and all the programming methods in the standard. The new edition brings the book fully up to date with the current developments in PLCs, describing new and important applications such as PLC use in communications (e.g. Ethernet – an extremely popular system), and safety – in particular proprietary emergency stop relays (now appearing in practically every PLC based system).
The coverage of commonly used PLCs has been increased, including the ever popular Allen Bradley PLCs, making this book an essential source of information both for professionals wishing to update their knowledge, as well as students who require a straight forward introduction to this area of control engineering.
