The objective of this workshop is to help the student develop a good working knowledge of Programmable Logic Controllers with concentration on relay ladder logic techniques and how the PLC is connected to external components in an operating control system.
- Design your own PLC driven system from scratch.
- You will get your hands dirty with all basic electronics component and with PLC kits.
- You will be introduced with various software tools to make your design work easy.
- Tools we use are up to the industrial standard, which will give your learning an industrial touch and thus this workshop will be added in your industrial experience.
- You will be doing two mini-project during this workshop.
- Our commitment to participants doesnot finish with this workshop, you can look back to us to get any support for your final year project or any other project you do in future.
- Once you are done with this workshop, you will be ready to design any kind of Basic Automation application
- Certificates will be provided to all the participants at the successful completion of the workshop.
- Guidance for placement will be provided for the participants who want to make their career in this field.
