What do they use for equipment?I am not really looking to get into PLC. I just thought since I got this forum off the ground I would start a thread for those interested.
I hear that it pays good money. Anyone have an idea what a worker can make doing PLC.
Btw, my son is teaching PLC at Asheville Community College in NC. He has tried teaches me bits but I am too unfocused to learn.
I've only done ladder logic for older AB, and ADs CLICK. I may have tried a couple others. The terms are different but the logic of how things operate were similar. Totally different levels of sophistication and capabilities for these two units.So is the language different for different brands or is the logic the same

AB. it's still the de facto standard in industrial control PLC's, because of the manufacturer support.If one were to learn PLC logic what would be he best equipment to learn- ie, the most popular I guess...What would that be and where would you go to learn it.
Get a Cmore Micro HMI while you're at it and have even more fun. Ethernet connection ability for both is worth the money. You can have both programs running make changes as you need and see the results without leaving the kitchen table.Automation Direct, you can download programming software free and write programs right now if you wanted.
But unless you actually upload and run a program on an actual controller it is difficult to know how successful your outcome was. They have some pretty inexpensive controllers if you want to purchase one to play with. May only have 4-6 inputs 4-6 outputs - relay type, no special function digital/analog I/O's but they can be added on.
