Introduction to PLC controllers
on-line, FREE!                                                author: Nebojsa Matic
 
PLC are industrial microcontroller systems (in more recent times we meet processors instead of microcontrollers) where hardware and software are specifically adapted to industrial environment. The key to their success is the fact that you don't have to learn a new programming language to program them. How do they work exactly ? How to connect a simple sensor ? How to program in ladder diagram ? In this book you will find answers for this question and more...
