Back cover copy

The third edition of Fundamentals of Programmable Logic Controllers, Sensors, and Communications retains the previous edition's practical approach, easy-to-read writing style, and coverage of leading-edge technology. Chapters begin with a generic approach to PLCs and programming, followed by specific examples for major brands of PLCs. LogixPro programming and simulation software is included so that the reader can write and simulate PLC programs. New chapters have been added on safety and lockout/tagout, Rockwell Automation addressing, fundamentals of process control, instrumentation, process control systems, and fundamentals of robotics. Detailed information about the configuration and use of DeviceNet has been added. Information on ControlLogix PLCs and addressing has also been added. All chapters have been updated to incorporate the latest technology. Among the many important features of this book is its comprehensive coverage of the following: Safety/logout/tagout Major brands of PLCs Input/output modules and wiring IEC 61131-3 programming Communications, including industrial buses Sensors, sensor wiring, and applications Supervisory.
