Description:  An introduction to Programmable Logic Controls PLCs. This industrial training video will introduce the viewer to the different kinds of Allen Bradley cable, non-OEM PLC cable and PLC communication protocols.
Introduction to AB PLC Cables and Drivers is the first in a series of training videos designed to teach anyone what a PLC is and how to you effectively operate one. This first PLC training video covers the different types of PLCs, the cables types needed to operate the PLC, the PLC communication protocols - drivers and related areas of the RSLinks software.
Programmable Logic Controllers PLCs are devices that use ladder logic to control anything from industrial machines in a factory to traffic lights in your town. They are an integral part to any facility in the world, and therefore having a better understanding of how they work and how to use them is beneficial to everyone.
The first section goes over the three main categories of PLCs the regular PLC5, small SLC 500 system and micro Micrologix. You will learn what types of PLC's fit into each category. The next section deals with the different types of cables required to connect a PLC to a computer. You will also introduced to the different types of PLC communication protocols and drivers required for each cable option. There is even a section that will show you how to save money by using low  cost non-OEM cables instead of their more expensive counterparts. Another section goes over how to configure and use RSLogix which is the program that allows you to view and configure the ladder logic that controls the PLC.
There are plenty of Allen Bradley training courses that will teach you how to work with a PLC but there are very few that will teach real-world and application knowledge in a professional and enjoyable way that won't break the bank. This is the only video on the market that will even show you how to use third party cables to save money and downtime. Watch the preview video above today and learn more about the exciting training techniques utilized by Business Industrial Network.
