Here’s a valuable PLC reference that you can use right now. This particular reference is taken from our award-winning textbook—Programmable Controllers: Theory and Implementation, 2nd Edition. In it, you’ll get an overview of how relay logic can be converted into PLC logic. There’s also lots of examples, tables, and ladder diagrams to help explain the topics.Best yet, we’ve included the corresponding chapter from the companion workbook. Here you can look over the key points as well as see how much you learned by answering the review questions. And, yes, the answers are also included. This PLC reference is just a sample of what the textbook and workbook have to offer. If you like it, we’ve included the product literature page with the order number.Industrial Text & Video Company 1-800-752-8398 www.industrialtext.com
PLC Reference Book
You covered a huge amount of detail very well. It was very easy to understand.
—Jeff Camp, United Control Corp.
The biggest book on PLCs. Written by industry experts, this book covers important, up-to-date, real-world programmable controller topics and applications. This new edition is completely revisedand updated to give you the latest developments and insights from the field.
