The Principles of PLCs trainer offers students a complete PLC training system featuring the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix PLC with two built-in applications: traffic intersection and bi-directional motor controlled slide. This system enables learners to develop experience in operating, programming and troubleshooting a true industrial programmable logic controller (PLC) and applying that knowledge to the included applications. Our curriculum begins with basic wiring concepts and quickly moves through series and parallel circuits, Boolean Algebra, inputs / outputs, ladder logic and  Each of our 23 learning units simulate PLC operations and applications within an industrial setting.
