The most used guiding force behind an automated industrial plant is a programmable logic controller (PLC). PLC along with some other field devices like sensors, motors, actuators, valves, conveyors, boilers & many more, makes a real automated manufacturing plant.
The main objective of this training is to make aspiring engineers acquainted with conceptual as well as practical knowledge of the Siemens Industrial Automation & latest technologies being used. The training also introduces the principles of operations, maintenance techniques, basic troubleshooting techniques and thorough understanding of overall machine design concepts using Siemens S7 300 and 400 PLCs
