This outstanding book for programmable logic controllers focuses on the theory and operation of PLC systems with an emphasis on program analysis and development. The book is written in easy-to-read and understandable language with many crisp illustrations and many practical examples. It describes the PLC instructions for the Allen-Bradley PLC 5, SLC 500, and Logix processors with an emphasis on the SLC 500 system using numerous figures, tables, and example problems. New to this edition are two column and four-color interior design that improves readability and figure placement and all the chapter questions and problems are listed in one convenient location in Appendix D with page locations for all chapter references in the questions and problems.This book describes the technology so that readers can learn PLCs with no previous experience in PLCs or discrete and analog system control.
The third edition ofFundamentals of Programmable Logic Controllers, Sensors, and Communicationsretains the previous edition s practical approach, easy-to-read writing style, and coverage of various types of industrial controllers while reflecting leading-edge technology. Since the programmable logic controller has become an invaluable tool in American industry, it responds to the substantial need for trained personnel who can program and integrate these devices.Covers new and emerging technologies and techniques IEC 61131 programming; Industrial automation controllers; ControlLogix; Embedded controllers; Supervisory control and data acquisition; Fuzzy logic; Step, stage, and state logic programming. Features process control and instrumentation Process Control, PLC Addressing, PLC Wiring, and Robotics.For trained personnel using programmable logic control devices.
Engineers not only need to understand the basics of how fluid power components work, but they must also be able to design these components into systems and analyze or model fluid power systems and circuits. There has long been a need for a comprehensive text on fluid power systems, written from an engineering perspective, which is suitable for an undergraduate-level course in fluid power. Fluid Power Circuits and Controls: Fundamentals and Applications encourages students to think of the collection of components as a system. The author illustrates each concept with a circuit diagram, and as each component is discussed, immediately places it in a circuit and analyzes its performance. This approach allows students to immediately apply what they have learned and encourages them to think about how the component operating characteristics interact with the rest of the circuit. Covering all aspects of the industry, this book: Develops the basic concept for power delivery with fluids Reviews basic concepts of fluid mechanics and discusses the key properties of the fluids Discusses the creation and control of flow and the various methods used to control pressure in a circuit Provides a detailed example of the classic problem of hydrostatic transmission design Presents characteristics of auxiliary components and applicable SAE standards Addresses pneumatics, focusing on the difference in power transmission for liquid and gas Discusses servo valves and proportional valves without requiring a background in automatic controls The text is richly illustrated, filled with fully worked example problems, and reinforced with exercises in each chapter. Fluid Power Circuits and Controls offers valuable design experience and the background its readers need to approach real-world fluid power problems with confidence.

Now in four-color, this outstanding text for the first course in programmable logic controllers (PLCs) focuses on how PLCs work and gives students practical information about installing, programming, and maintaining PLC systems. It's not intended to replace manufacturer's or user's manuals, but rather complements and expands on the information contained in these materials. All topics are covered in small segments. Students systematically carry out a wide range of generic programming exercises and assignments. All of the information about PLCs has been updated.
An easy-to-read alternative to the expensive and jargon-filled manual sets, this reference describes how to set up and troubleshoot a PLC in general, and covers implementation in specific leading proprietary PLC systems: Allen-Bradley (PLC-5 and SLC 500), Siemens (Simatic S5 and Simatic S7), and OMRON (all, but specifically CQM1). It includes, but goesbeyond,simple Boolean logic enabling readers to useallof the power of a modern PLC.Complete coverage of capabilities of modern PLCs; extensive troubleshooting coverage; full instructions (for Boolean logic, timing and counting, data manipulation, process control, and communication) -- with at least one instruction of each type described in detail and similar instructions described in terms of what they do differently; setup and configuration requirements of all PLCs.For anyone interested in programming and configuration of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) for industrial control.
Updated to reflect recent industry developments, this edition features practical information on Rockwell Automation's SLC 500 family of PLCs and includes a no-nonsense introduction to RSLogix software and the new ControlLogix PLC. To assist readers in understanding key concepts, the art program has been modernized to include improved illustrations, current manufacturer-specific photos, and actual RSLogix software screens to visibly illustrate essential principles of PLC operation. New material has been added on ControlNet and DeviceNet, and a new chapter on program flow instructions includes updated references to the SLC 500, MicroLogix, and the PLC 5.
PROGRAMMING CONTROLLOGIX PROGRAMMABLE AUTOMATION CONTROLLERS strength is its breadth and depth of coverage, taking the reader from an overview of the Programmable Logic Controllers through ladder logic, structured text, sequential function chart, and function block programming. Students learn more and more easily because of the practical coverage, numerous examples and extensive exercises.
