Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will deal with structure and parameters of programmable logical controllers (PLC), their configuration and programming. Students will find out different ways of PLC's programming. Student will be able to compare hardware and software solution of PLC's from leading producers. The main emphasis is put especially on the skills in application of programmable controllers for solving standard technical tasks. Student will be able to understand and use the higher level of programming. Student will apply knowledge especially of communication between PLCs and operator panels, too.

Teaching methods
