Programmable Logic Controllers. Teacher Edition.
Rauh, Bob; Kaltwasser, Stan
These materials were developed for a seven-unit secondary or postsecondary education course on programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that treats most of the skills needed to work effectively with PLCs as programming skills. The seven units of the course cover the following topics: fundamentals of programmable logic controllers; contracts, timers, and counters; sequencers and registers; editing and programming functions; installation and troubleshooting; types of PLCs and programming; and industrial program applications. The first section of the manual is designed to show teachers how to use the materials and includes an explanation of instructional elements; an instructional task analysis for each unit; a list of tools, equipment, and materials; and a list of 14 references. Each instructional unit includes some or all of these basic components: performance objectives; suggested activities; information sheets; transparency masters; assignment sheets; job sheets; tests; and test answers. Some elements, such as the information sheets, include photographs, diagrams, and line drawings. (CML)
