PLC Hands-on Trainer Allen Bradley MicroLogix

This course includes a real hands-on PLC lab, software and lesson material with exercises. Learn to program Allen Bradley PLCs at home.

Allen Bradley MicroLogix PLC Hands-on Trainer 

Allen Bradley Micrologix 1000 has everything you need to start PLC programming. This course includes a real hands-on PLC lab, software and lesson material. All you do is provide the PC and you can start programming PLCs!

You will be given complete set of instructions and videos on how to use the software.

PLC Course Includes:

  • 1 PLC
  • 1 Training Module with 4 discrete inputs and 4 discrete outputs
  • Power switch
  • Programming cable
  • Power cable
  • 8 Programming lessons
  • 2 Analog lessons
  • Videos
  • USB-1761-CBL-PM02

The software included is RSLogix Micro, this is the same software as RSLogix 500 and for programming SLC's and MicroLogix.

By learning RSLogix 500 you will be able to program all SLC's (5/01-5/05) and MicroLogix PLC's (1000-1500).

RSLogix software is made by Rockwell Automation this software can only be used with MircoLogix PLC's in the 1000's and 1100 range, this means any 1761 or 1763.

Programming Lessons -  Allen Bradley (RSLogix 500)

These lessons include real world scenarios with real machines that you will come across in the field so you'll learn how to program and troubleshoot the real thing. 
Learn PLC programming with a step-by-step method where every task is explained thoroughly. 5 programs and 8 pdf files (about 50 pages) are contained on a 2 gig flash drive. These PLC lessons will have you programming in no time.

Lesson 1: Basics - A Simple Latch Circuit

In this lesson you will cover step by step writing of the program, downloading to the CPU, editing your program and downloading again. You will write one small program.

Lesson 2: Software Tips

In this lesson you will cover some of the key features of RSLogix 500.This will make your life easier and save you some time in the end, Instruction help, Program tree, Custom Data Monitor (CMD), program status, Split Screen and more.

Lesson 3: PLC Scan Cycle

In this lesson you will cover the scan of the PLC and the way the CPU looks at the logic and determines what to do with the logic you have created, when you understand this then programming and troubleshooting automated equipment will be much easier.

Lesson 4: An Event Recorder Program     

Lesson 4 is a program where you are going to RECORD a series of inputs and PLAYBACK the data as outputs. Learn to use the MOVE, TABLE, COUNTER and BIT instructions to record up to 20 values that will determine which outputs will be energized.

We are going to record 20 inputs and play them back in the order of first one in, first one out. We will be covering Jump to SubRoutine (JSR), First in First out Load (FFL) First in First out Unload (FFU), And others that we will cover more on other lessons but used them also in

Lesson 5: Peak HMI 

In this lesson you will interface your PLC with your PC and run Peak HMI demo version. It will run for 2 hours in configuration and 20 minutes in runtime, then the program needs to be restarted, just click double click on the icon again.

This is a great way to get comfortable with an HMI (Human Machine Interface or MMI Man Machine Interface) as more and more machines are using them to control some or all of the interaction of the human side of the machine.            

Lesson 6: Tracking Parts on a Conveyor Line 

Timers, Moves, Shift, Increment and Comparison Instructions

In this lesson, you will cover some advanced instructions to simulate tracking boxes on a conveyor, a common task. You will be manipulating data and using a number of internal relays to add switches to control several different functions that we would normally have to have extra hardware for, but with a PLC we simply just add more Networks of code to accomplish the same thing.   

Lesson 7: Grinding Machine Program    

This lesson goes in depth lesson about various programming techniques. The operating sequence of a small grinding machine is to be automatically controlled by a PLC and you will learn to do that operation.

Lesson 8: Vacuum Pump Sequencing Program  

This is a pump sequencing program, many times you will have several pumps on the same system for backups, faster draw downs and other reasons. So in this lesson you will cover Timer On Retentive (TONR), Move Word (MOVW), Greater than or Equal to Integer (>=I), Add Integer (ADD_I), Pointers and many others.

Bonus Analog Lessons

Analog lesson 1: 
Introduction to analog, scaling and data files

Analog Lesson 2: 
Scaling, data moves and storage, inverting and limits while controlling outputs

Learn ways you can troubleshoot and commission your PLC equipment. PLCs are tools intended to help you, make you look better, make your job easier and more efficient.

These lessons mimic real machines that you will come across in real life and you will learn how to program and troubleshoot the real thing.  

The PLC trainer and software will run on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or 8.
