Students will develop an understanding of integrating automated control system equipment using various PLCs, HMIs, analog and discrete I/O, and communication interfaces. Advanced PLC hardware configuration and programming techniques will be used to connect, commission, troubleshoot and document projects. Various PLCs will be introduced using discrete, analog, local, and remote I/O, as well as PID control and multiple programming languages. Students will use and interpret various information resources to understand the functioning of various hardware, software, and PLC instructions. The student will develop basic HMI control programs to interact with automated control systems to provide control and information feedback to a person.
