How to Wire Discrete DC Sensors to PLC - Part 1

C'mon over to https://realpars.com where you can learn PLC programming faster and easier than you ever thought possible! ========================== Check out the full blog post over at https://realpars.com/discrete-sensors-part-1/ ========================== In this video, you will learn how to wire a 2-wire DC sensor, like a switch or a contact, to a PLC input card. You will also learn what a 2-Wire Discrete sensor is and recognize some of the common types of 2-Wire Discrete sensors. DC sensors can be used to indicate the state of a device or a process to the PLC program. Knowing these input states can allow the PLC program to make decisions, such as, when to start or stop a pump. Discrete DC Sensors, or discrete Direct Current sensors, operate in a circuit with a battery or other power source, commonly known as a power supply. A power supply is placed in an electrical circuit to provide power to the connected devices, like a switch, or a lamp. DC power supplies are referred to by their voltage and capacity, indicated by how many amperes they can supply. The more amperes a power supply can deliver, the larger and more expensive they generally are. In DC PLC circuits, the power supply almost always supplies 24 Volts DC to the connected devices. ========================== Missed our most recent videos?

Bottle Filling Process PLC Program _ Part 1

C'mon over to https://realpars.com where you can learn PLC programming faster and easier than you ever thought possible! ========================== There is a bottle filling machine that fills the empty bottles on a conveyor belt with liquid from this tank. In this and the next lessons you’re going to learn how this machine works and how to write a professional PLC program that fully controls this machine. This filling machine has three operation modes which are off, manual and automatic. These modes are determined by the three position selector switch. ========================== To stay up to date with our last videos and more lessons, make sure to subscribe to this YouTube channel: http://goo.gl/Y6DRiN ============================= Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/therealpars/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/realpars Follow us on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/realpars

What is an HMI?

C'mon over to https://realpars.com where you can learn PLC programming faster and easier than you ever thought possible! ========================== Check out the full blog post over at https: https://realpars.com/what-is-hmi/ ========================== In this video you will learn some of the basics of an HMI or Human Machine Interface. These are the monitors and controls of a machine that allows the operator to run a machine or monitor a machine. Engineers can program an HMI to perform almost any function that can be controlled or information that can be monitored by a PLC. HMIs and PLCs work together to monitor and control the machine. This means they have to be compatible and they also have to speak the same language so to say. This comes in the form of a Protocol which is just an industrial network. ========================== Missed our most recent videos?

Who is the Father of the PLC ?

C'mon over to https://realpars.com where you can learn PLC programming faster and easier than you ever thought possible! ========================== Check out the full blog post over at https://realpars.com/father-of-the-plc/ ========================== You probably watch these videos because of your interest in PLCs and automation. But have you ever wondered who actually invented the PLC, or how the first PLC came to be? Today you will learn the story of Richard “Dick” Morley, commonly referred to as the “Father” of the PLC. Morley had a clear idea of what he wanted the controller to be like. First, he wanted no interrupts for processing. This means that nothing should be able to interrupt the program unless it is programmed to do so. Second, he wanted direct mapping into a memory. This would allow an easier way to program the data tables and information into the PLC. Next, no software handling of repetitious chores. The controller should be able to run a sequence and repeat itself however it is programmed. Next, he wanted it to operate slowly. This, Morley would later regret. Morley also wanted a rugged design that really worked in the industrial settings. It had to be completely sealed and cooled with a well-engineered heat transferring. He also wanted a language that would be proprietary to Bedford Associates. He wanted the exclusive rights to the language. This would lead to the development of ladder logic, and we know now that it is more of a universal language for technicians and engineers. ========================== Missed our most recent videos?

What is Process Automation?

C'mon over to https://realpars.com where you can learn PLC programming faster and easier than you ever thought possible! ========================== Check out the full blog post over at https://realpars.com/what-is-process-automation/ ========================== We hear about new things and processes becoming automated almost every day. But what does that actually mean? Today, we will dive into Process Automation, so you can learn all about it for yourself. What exactly does automation mean? Automation is the use of largely automatic equipment in a system of manufacturing or other production processes. This typically includes the use of PLCs, sensors, robots, and motors among many other things depending on the automated process. ========================== Missed our most recent videos?

==========================

As I’m sure you may know, the salary that you can expect will be based on several factors including your years of experience, proficiency in the specific platform such as Siemens, Allen Bradley, or Modicon, and so on.

Other factors may include your ability to draft/design electrical panel drawings, programming of Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), or Plant Control Systems such as Wonderware, IFix or WinCC, schooling certificates or degrees and others.

What I can tell you is you can expect anything from $25,000/yr to as high at $115,000/yr as when you're working as a PLC programmer. Do not forget that you are the best advocate for negotiating your wage.

Always do your homework about the company, the requirements, expectations, benefits, etc., then factor in your experience with that data. At that point, you can make an educated guess on what salary expectations you can have for your next position.

Good luck in your career and keep on learning. The more you learn, the higher you will go.
