Advanced PLC with Electro-pneumatics

Advanced PLC with Electro-pneumatics


COURSE CODE:                    KCAPLE-02

Credit Value:                         2.0      

Course Description:

This is an advanced PLC programming course that is tailor-made to use electro-pneumatic systems for all practical applications. Trainees undertake programming GRAFCET with function block diagram (FBD) and sequential function chart (SFC) programming languages, as well as reading and analyzing PLC-based electro-pneumatic circuit diagrams, assembling and making adjustments of electro-pneumatic systems, troubleshooting, detection, and repairs of faults.


Students should have some experience operating pneumatic systems or equipment. They should also have taken the course Intermediate PLC (KAIPLC-050201).
