One of the best visual programming languages is a PLC programming language. It’s called ladder logic or ladder diagram (LD) and you can learn it very fast.
The smart thing about ladder logic is that it looks very similar to electrical relay circuits. So if you already know a little bit about relay control and electrical circuits, you can learn ladder logic even faster.
Welcome to the first chapter of my Arduino Tutorial for Beginners. In this chapter, you will learn the very basics of the Arduino platform so that you can start programming. I will teach you how to set up your computer and write your first program for the Arduino Uno board.
New to PLC programming? Here’s the starter kit that will teach you the basic fundementals of PLC programming.With its small size, user friendly software and low price the Siemens LOGO Starter Kit is absolutely perfect for beginners.
You can build ladder logic PLC programs and simulate them for free. This guide will show you how to download and install the popular RSLogix Micro Starter Lite and how to use the RSLogix Emulate 500 to simulate your ladder logic PLC programs.
Do you also struggle reading your own and others huge ladder diagrams?
The truth is, that even though ladder diagram (LD) is an easy programming language for beginners, it can be very hard to read and understand. That’s why Structured Text is a better PLC programming language, and you can learn it in this tutorial.
You probably have heard about the Siemens S7-1200 PLC. It is the latest Siemens PLC and the best for learning. Get the Starter Kit with the programming software SIMATIC S7 TIA Portal and begin learning Siemens PLC programming. You can even control the S7-1200 PLC with your smart phone!
