PROGRAMMING CONTROLLOGIX PROGRAMMABLE AUTOMATION CONTROLLERS covers ControlLogix Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and their programming and integration. The book's strength is its breadth and depth of coverage, taking the reader from an overview of the PLC through ladder logic, structured text, sequential function chart, and function block programming. PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLERS WITH CONTROLLOGIX also covers industrial sensors, PLC modules and wiring, as well as motion control using ControlLogix through two-axis coordinated motion (linear and circular) is also covered. To aid in learning, the book features a DVD with Camtasia learning videos and explanations of setup of RSLinx, project development, tag creation, configuration, instructions and much more. Appendixes cover configuring remote I/O, producer/consumer communication, messaging, and motion configuration and programming. Students learn more and more easily because of the breadth of practical coverage, numerous examples and extensive exercises.
