PLC Tutorial Videos

As the world of automation advances, new ways of delivering information are necessary. We already publish technical articles, news, eBooks, and plenty more content about all sorts of topics, but we are excited to be creating more videos to provide a more personal look into the heart of control system technology.


Control Automation YouTube Premier LIVE Video Launch


YouTube Premier LIVE Launch

In the first of our videos, we provided an introduction to PLC technology and the various hardware modules and options that are common across the many makes and models. 

In this next video in the series, we take a look at the discrete sensors, switches, and buttons that are connected to a PLC input module. These inputs collect information about the process environment in order to generate output actions and evaluate the current status of the process. Without this important feedback, we have no idea if our system is working or failed, so it’s a very important first step in the closed-loop control system process.

Check out the webpage for the YouTube premier event and mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 9th at 11am ET / 8 am PT to watch live!

You don’t need to sign up or log in to watch this free content, but only YouTube members can interact with our live question and answer chat. Besides just the Q&A, signing up for the newsletter on our site will give you access to all the latest info about upcoming videos and written content as we continue this PLC series and explore all sorts of new, innovative ideas and equipment from our many partners.
