karnaugh map plc

for start up i can introduce you a good valuable resource:
http://www.mikroe.com/en/books/plcbook/plcbook.htm
this is a free ebook from mikroelektronica. you can use it online or download it from the above link. after reading this you can find more books and tutorials about plc in edaboard or web.(just search) . the plc teached in this book is omron but the lessons are extendable to all plcs.
:D

Take a low cost PLC. Learn Ladder language and make some example. The problem is that you need a PLC and maybe they are not cheap.

first read
1. industrial instrumentation
2. basic knowledge of programming and digital electronics (gate level logics, karnaugh map, and physical interpretation of boolean equations)
3. Try some simulation software such as ladder logic etc.

If have knowledge of industrial electronics (sensors, instrumentation and control), then u should first choose a PLC, like the one most popular where u live... and practice on it..

You can check out http://www.PLCMentor.com

You can also try the tutorials on http://www.AutomationNC.com

It has training videos and a mix of free and subscription training.

You can also try youtube. AutomationNC has some of the PLCMentor.com training available on youtube.

To master a PLC you have to do. There is no other way to really learn programming than to actually jump in and do a project; however, you will need some sort of mentor along the way...

Hi, You can download a simulator from www.TheLearningPit.com Logixpro simulator for trial. Also look for a Book
Programmable logic controllers by Frank Petrouzella and
Lab manual : Programmable logic contrllers by the same Auther with a CD containing the Logixpro simulator.

Also some people downloaded the cracked version of the simulator from the internet.

This will teach you PLC and it is simillar to Allan Bradlly PLC.

I hope this is of great benefit to you
