PLC hardware that is part of the JobMaster Training Station and is integrated with PLC software that lets students observe and understand the control logic behind the operation of industrial PLCs. The Programmable Logic Controllers courses emphasize PLC theory and basic programming. Students learn to program a PLC and simulate industrial applications that require electrical control.

Curriculum

Fundamentals of Ladder Logic PLC Technology 1 emphasizes the fundamentals of PLC theory and basic programming. In this module, students learn how to program and use PLCs in industrial applications that require electrical control. The module includes the testing of input and output responses to ladder diagrams students program. Using PLCMotion software and the JMTS training panel, students program PLCs, troubleshoot ladder diagrams and control programs, and also design original HMIs for displaying PLC program simulations. For hardware labs, the system supports industrial Siemens and Allen Bradley PLC controllers

PLCMotion

PLCMotion allows students to observe and understand the control logic behind the operation of industrial PLCs and gives students practical experience in the fundamentals of PLC programming and control.

PLCMotion includes an easy to use, human-machine interface (HMI) with graphics editor that allows students to create a complete production line or industrial process in simulation mode.

In addition to simulation of virtual applications, PLCMotion can control the operation of actual PLC applications. When connected to the JMTS training panel, the software provides on-line graphic tracking of its operation. (Requires PLC control unit.)

Hardware Training Kits

The training is supplied with a set of industrial grade components. Students can mount and configure components on the JMTS panel in order to create a variety of applications. Students can connect different components, change physical parameters and observe system responses. The unique combination of software and industrial equipment allows students to test and troubleshoot simulated circuits before hardware connections are made.
