PLC programming is the ability to debug and to write new code for a ‘programmable logic controller,’ which in turn, controls physical machinery. This technical masterclass will guide you through the process of developing your PLC programming technique.
You will start by learning about the 7-steps to developing excellence in your area of study, as well how you can improve your productivity, work organisation and management in the Engineering sector.
Once you have completed these stages, watch an 8-part video demonstration on writing a PLC program for a sorting device, with an IEC 61131 compatible programable logic controller. The masterclass then guides you to perform the tasks shown in the videos and offers a set of downloadable resources to assist you.
Suitable for Level 3 (Level 6 in Scotland) learners, this Masterclass takes around 2 hours to complete. You are required to successfully answer a series of multiple choice questions at the end of your learning before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.
In this technical masterclass, you will learn to:
explain inputs and outputs into a PLC
explain the function of several sensor types
explain what a case structure is in PLC programming
