PLC Technology Training

PLC111 – Programmable Logic Controllers - Introduction

Not every industrial application demands a complex PLC. A few inputs and outputs are often sufficient to automate a simple application quickly and reliably. A small and simple PLC that has an equally uncomplicated programming language can quickly be learned.

In this course, you will learn how to create and structure basic accurate as well as clear PLC programs.

Target group: Design engineers, plant engineers, programmers, maintenance staff and instructors.

The content includes:

  • Basic design and control of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
  • Input and output properties.
  • Hardware and software familiarisation.
  • Programming languages such as statement list, ladder diagram and function block diagram.
  • Basic command sets.
  • Creating, loading and testing industry-related sequence programs.
  • Creating time delay and counter functions.
  • Program editing.
  • Fault analysis.

After completing this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Read and create hardware configurations.
  • Create logic associations and sequences as PLC programs and commission them.
  • Implement modes such as automatic, manual, and emergency stop.
  • Combine various program modules with structured programs.
  • Identify and eliminate faults using the status display.
  • Troubleshoot and identify reasons for machine stoppages with the aid of the PLC program.


  • Pneumatics Level 1 (PN111) (Advisable).
  • Experience in operating a PC with a Windows interface.
