Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers 3rd Edition

Gary Dunning

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 2002, 1998
  • 640 Pages

Overview

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.

Gary Dunning, Hennepin Technical College

Gary Dunning received his Bachelor's Degree at the University of Minnesota. He also studied Computer Electronics at St. Paul Technical College, St. Paul, Minnesota. During his career he has developed and taught classes on programmable logic controllers at two technical colleges in Minnesota. Mr. Dunning worked for Rockwell Automation providing technical support and taught open as well as private classes for 20 years. Gary is the author of Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers, editions 1 through 4 and the Lab Manual to accompany each edition of Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers. His latest book is the Introduction to the ControlLogix Programmable Automation Controller using RSLogix 5000 with Labs.
  • coverage examines how Rockwell Automation's SLC 500 and MicroLogix PLCs work and program, leading to a better understanding of fundamental processes
  • a clear-cut orientation to general principles underlying all PLC operations enhances readers' ability to assimilate more advanced concepts and instruction sets in later chapters
  • the hands-on Lab Manual, now subtitled "Programming the SLC 500 PLC using RSLogix 500 Software," has been updated to include more information on RSLinx drivers for the MicroLogix as well as a new Ethernet driver configuration lab for the SLC modular processor, the 5/05
  • new exercises in the Lab Manual complement the new program flow instructions and take readers through jump to subroutine, jump to label, MCR, and the immediate input instruction
