I think Allen Bradly's PLC is good for beginners.

Re: PLC intro

hi ..

What type of PLC you should learn? it is a hard to answer there are many kinds of PLC's and all of them usees a common LAD Diagrams. All manufactorers have a small PLC which they are cheap.

I advice you to see the kind of PLC available in your area. Alan Bradly is used widly in Canada and United state for example. Siemens PLC is in Mideast and Europe Also Mitsubish in Mid-East .

Knowing that will help you to decide which PLC you should learn.

Regards

Re: PLC intro

Youc can use a simulator if you want to start programming a PLC. Instead of buying a PLC set at once, you could practice programming using this simulator.
KEYENCE is a very popular PLC especially in industrial plants. KEYENCE has a simulator where you can create a program and see what happens.

Re: PLC intro

2 other good sites are

www.PLCS.net
www.thelearningpit.com

the learning pit site, when it's up, has a RSLogix simulator, which is the allen bradley software. Liscenses for the software are $40, I think.
