The PLCTrainer includes a Laboratory Manual full of proven practical applications that allow the student to gain an understanding of the PLC's Instruction Set. The screens demonstrating the Instructions have a look and feel of RSLogix, plus if you own a copy of RSLogix you can open it from within The PLCTrainer!
PLC analog inputs and outputs are discussed as are the mathematical relationships involved.
Examples of the PLC SCL or Scale instruction are illustrated with practical easy to understand examples.
Examples of the SCP or Scale with Parameters instruction are illustrated with practical easy to understand examples.
Example of troubleshooting exercises. The more you practice PLC troubleshooting, the greater your skill increases, and the less downtime you have. This PLC training software provides a safe environment in which to practice. The entire application also includes narration!
Realistic "Works Orders" are displayed on the screens that require the technician to trouble shoot a PLC managed automation system!
The PLCTrainer also includes an extensive Glossary of terms that are common to PLC technology.

The tutorial comes with an interactive, self scoring Final Exam!
Along with the interactive "self scoring" final exam, the student has the option to print a certificate of completion.
Even if the certificate is not printed, the score and student name are saved in the "student log file" in the Site and Enterprise licensed versions.) Additionally, when the quiz is scored, the student name and final score are appended to a colon-delimited text file that may be imported into a database or spreadsheet application.... making the site/enterprise license purchasing options perfect for Tech Schools, Community Colleges, Universities, Apprenticeship Programs, and company training departments.
A Laboratory Manual full of College proven and tested programming assignments is included with the tutorial. The Lab Manual is in Adobe PDF format that you can print if need be.
Lab Manual
In older equipment, thumbwheels may be used for data entry. (After all, industrial equipment can last for decades.) The Binary Coded Decimal instructions FRD and TOD are handy in dealing with them. They are also handy for learning BCD.
Data manipulation instructions like the FIFO load and unload example pictured here, are explained with interactive PLC simulations.
Video Animations are used to illustrate some complex concepts, so technician can relate code to real world better.
A list of PLC resources are available. You may periodically update this list via a FREE download !
LogixPro is the ideal tool for practicing the fundamentals of RSLogix PLC programming in ladder logic learned. The look, feel, and operation of the ladder rung editor so closely mimics Allen Bradley's software (Rockwell's RSLogix 500), that many on first look, need a second look to be sure who's editor they're using.
This PLC training course is a prerequisite to the RSLogix 5000 Training Course
