The third edition of Fundamentals of Programmable Logic Controllers, Sensors, and Communications retains the previous edition¿s practical approach, easy-to-read writing style, and coverage of various types of industrial controllers while reflecting leading-edge technology. Since the programmable logic controller has become an invaluable tool in American industry, it responds to the substantial need for trained personnel who can program and integrate these devices.
Covers new and emerging technologies and techniques—IEC 61131 programming; Industrial automation controllers; ControlLogix; Embedded controllers; Supervisory control and data acquisition; Fuzzy logic; Step, stage, and state logic programming. Features process control and instrumentation—Process Control, PLC Addressing, PLC Wiring, and Robotics.
For trained personnel using programmable logic control devices.
An introductory textbook on the fundamentals of industrial controllers which can also be used as a resource for electricians and for electronics and manufacturing technicians. Chapters begin with a generic approach to each concept, then give examples for specific controllers such as Allen-Bradley, Gould Modicon, Omron, PLC Direct by Koyo, and Square D Corporation. Topics covered include embedded controllers, supervisory control and data acquisition, fuzzy logic and radio frequency, and new programming techniques. The new edition has expanded to include seven new chapters. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
