Control Applications Using PLC's

Course Code: ELEC 352

Academic Year: 2022-2023

This course consists of a series of practical programmable logic controllers (PLC) assignments of typical process and machine applications. Students will expand and apply the knowledge obtained in previous courses. Each assignment will require planning, design and development of both PLC program and operator interface screens. Students will apply established engineering practices and procedures throughout the course, with emphasis on equipment and personnel safety at all times. Project testing will be accomplished by extensive use of emulation software. Students will use software commonly found in most Canadian industries. In all applications, preference will be given to the highest level of remote communications. PLC/PAC to be used are Allen-Bradley CompactLogix and ControlLogix, Allen-Bradley SLC and PLC5 series, Omron CJ1M and GE Fanuc PLCs. HMIs to be utilized are Allen-Bradley PanelView Standard, PanelView Plus, Omron NS Series and RSView32.
