This book is a project manual designed to provide practical laboratory experience for the student of Industrial controls: Its purpose is two fold (1) to provide structured laboratory experiences based on motor control applications. (2) to provide a background on programming control circuits and concepts that are used in industry. Throughout the manual the student will construct and program their own circuits focusing on "real-world" purposes. The projects and experiments will lead them in a step-by-step development process, designed to progress through various stages of programming instructions. The student's abilities to analyze and program circuits will progress as they complete each project. The simulator can be used to complete all the programming projects and experiments in the book. With the supervision of the instructor the simulator can be assembled and connected by students to provide valuable training.

Features and Benefits

  • covers two major industrial control sections, the industrial motor control field and the programmable controller field
  • each project has objectives, discussion, program logic, procedure and experiments so it can be applied as a supplement to various text in the industrial control field
  • discussion and reference section provides background information and directs users to to the appropriate sections of the A-B manual
  • program logic and procedure section details a step-by-step procedure for completing the labs
  • the instructor's guide provides a course syllabus, instructor tips and how to construct a programmable controller simulator
