educational tools

In an effort to make learning PLC application and programming more affordable, the Divelbiss Technical Services Group developed this training course for use by educators. The basic outline closely mirrors the material presented when providing training for our industrial customers. The hardware items are the same products being used worldwide in commercial and industrial control applications.

The study outline is comprised of 16 blocks which, taken in order, build on one another to teach the basics of PLCs in addition to programming a controller using ladder logic with function block. The course is designed for hands-on study using standard hardware manufactured by Divelbiss.

To achieve the optimum benefit from this study course, each student will have a personal trainer in addition to the textbook, workbook, equipment manuals and software provided on USB. This helps maximizes time for teaching as opposed to programs where resources need to be shared and/or scheduled. Portability helps make this a practical solution.
