Programming of PLCs

Programming of PLCs

Designed to further develop delegates' programing skills, the course aims toimprove their ability to convert control tasks to fully operational systems.

The course continues on from the 'Introduction to PLC's (E311)' course, withthe development of more complex control problems.

Additional functions such as timers and counters are used with sequential andconditional programs plus manual/auto and reset control functions.

A strong emphasis is placed on safety and appropriate working practicesthroughout the course, especially during the practical sessions.

Target Group
All personnel involved with the programing of a PLC system.


  • Review of PLC structure, ladder logic, statement list flags
  • Sequence programs
  • Scanning programs
  • Timers
  • Counters
  • Registers
  • Sequences with repeat pattern
  • Multi-tasking
  • On-line monitoring

'Introduction to PLC's (E311)'
