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 offering of PLC training systems can meet your training needs through outstanding eLearning curriculum, portable PLC training solutions, or a full-scale, heavy-duty workstation loaded with PLC application panels. Amatrol’s products utilize Allen-Bradley and Siemens PLCs to meet your specific training needs. These systems begin with basic PLC operation and PLC programming skills and methodically build to advanced PLC topics.
These industrial systems feature skill assessment products, world-class online curriculum, and real-world components for an unmatched offering of skill-building possibilities. Many of these systems also offer fault troubleshooting training through FaultPro, Amatrol’s exclusive electronic fault insertion software. The equipment available in this technical area is an integral part of several Amatrol programs like Biotech, Power and Energy, Oil and Gas, Industrial Maintenance, and many more!
