The programmable logic controller (PLC) is considered by many to be the most important development ever in industrial automation, because it is a prepackaged, industrially-hardened computer that can be quickly programmed to control a wide range of industrial processes and machines. Typical applications include: robots, conveyors, electric motor controls, air conditioning, process control, plastics injection molding, and CNC machines. Amatrol’s tabletop PLC training system (85-PS7312 / 85-PS7315) teaches how to program, operate, and interface programmable controllers in a variety of industrial applications.

The tabletop PLC training system includes a metal, silk-screened enclosure mounted with an industrial quality Siemens S7 programmable controller (S7312 or S7315). The system is designed to teach programming and real-world applications of input and output devices. For example, the system can be programmed to provide control of electromechanical and pneumatic devices.

The tabletop PLC training system includes a unique plug-in terminal strip system, which students can easily use to connect the PLC I/O to a variety of external application devices. Each terminal strip point includes a plug-in receptacle for single point interface by a lead with a solid pin jack. This is ideal for connecting small quantities of inputs and outputs that are not always connected to the same I/O. For applications where more I/O must be interfaced, a mating terminal strip with pre-wired I/O can be plugged into the terminal strip. This provides a fast and reliable method of connecting the PLC to an application. Each point also features test point access to support electrical troubleshooting measurements.

Optional Online eBook

As an option, the curriculum contained in the Learning Activity Packets (LAPs) is also available as an Amatrol eBook. eBooks look like a real book and allow users to flip between pages with ease. Enhanced features, such as keyword searches and zoom controls, enable users to quickly locate and view information. A great learning tool, eBooks are available online through Amatrol’s Learning Management System (LMS). Amatrol’s comprehensive curriculum advances learners’ understanding of concepts at the click of a button. High-quality graphics paired with hands-on, applied skills keep learners focused and engaged in their work. Amatrol’s eBooks allow courses to be taken completely online anywhere with an Internet connection!

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of this course’s Student Reference Guide is included with the tabletop PLC training system. Sourced from the multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. If you would like to purchase additional Student Reference Guides for your program, contact your local Amatrol representative for more information.
