About the Book
This tutorial will help you to level up your PLC programming skills. In this tutorial, I walk you through with a video simulation, how to build a simple PLC programming project using RSLogix 5000. The project is a simple batching system that is excellent for anyone who wants to acquire more skills in industrial PLCs and HMI programming.
The tutorial covered in this book, and the accompanying video simulation (link is given in Chapter 6), illustrate a simple batching process where three ingredients are sent into a mixing (batching) tank. The mixture is discharged once the process is complete.
The PLC and HMI Programs implemented provide a user interface used for monitoring and controlling the batch at each of the three stages of the process, which are Start, Stop, and Discharge.
The method presented in this project is one that is usually employed in the real world industrial automation. The information in this book is very valuable to anybody looking for a way to level up their skills in PLC programming.
Finally in this book, I provide a great opportunity to lay your hands on more exciting PLC programming projects and video tutorials to help you develop more skills in industrial automation.
About the Author
I am multi-talented. As a computer engineer and a computer scientist, I have over 15 years of teaching experience in software development and computer hardware architecture. I am the CEO of Ojula Technology Innovations, a book publishing company. I co-publish my books with Charles H. Johnson who also offers technical assistance to my company. In the last few years I have helped the IT industry develop various useful programs on Windows, MacOS and PLCs (programmable logic controllers).
I always build solutions from scratch and go as far as modifying open source software to meet my client’s needs. As an embedded systems expert, I design embedded Systems that optimize performance and cost against complex requirements. I leverage Stratify OS (a POSIX like RTOS for micro-controllers) to quickly and cost-effectively develop complex firmware applications in Python and C/C++ languages. I work with a dedicated team of Python programmers who look into specific automation problems and proffer solutions to them.
