Programmable Logic Controllers Reference Books & Software

Below is a collection of Programmable Logic Controller Reference Books (PLC’s) that I regularly use, recommend, and lend to others.

The Learning Pit – LogixPro 500 Allen Bradley PLC Programming Software Simulator

LogixPro 500 Allen Bradley PLC Programming Software Simulator

LogixPro 500 Allen Bradley PLC Programming Software Simulator

Combine ProSim-II programmable process simulations with a PLC Editor/Emulator which mimics Allen-Bradley’s (Rockwell) RSLogix 500, and you have LogixPro 500; a complete stand-alone PLC training system without the expense of a PLC.

LogixPro 500 is the ideal tool for learning the fundamentals of ladder logic programming. The look, feel, and operation of LogixPro’s ladder rung editor so closely mimics Rockwell’s world-renown PLC editing software, that may need a second look to be sure whose editor they’re using. Of course, the give-away is the window containing one of our ProSim-II Simulations. This is where LogixPro really outshines typical PLC training setups employing a PLC connected to a handful of switches and lights. By graphically simulating process equipment such as conveyors, bottling plants, etc. in software, the synchronous and interactive nature of real industrial processes, presents the student with a far more realistic and challenging programming experience.
