    RedVector’s programmable logic controllers training series focuses on increasing manufacturing flexibility, simplifying processes, reducing downtime and improving safety

    RedVector, the leader in eLearning and industrial skills training, has launched a programmable logic controllers training series to aid industrial organizations in increasing manufacturing flexibility, simplifying processes, reducing downtime and improving safety using PLCs.

    A programmable logic controller (PLC) is an electronic device used to monitor and control production processes and building systems. Programmable logic controllers, or PLCs, are at the forefront of manufacturing automation, with oil and gas and food and beverage manufacturing organizations representing the fastest-growing end-use sectors of PLCs.

    RedVector’s new PLC training series includes five, mobile-ready courses written by SME Ralph Hackle, who has nearly three decades of experience in industrial control systems. The training series offers industrial organizations and their personnel guidance in logic operations, programming PLC systems, designing and installing PLCs and more.

    “Because PLCs play such a key role in manufacturing automation and streamlining processes, we thought it was critical to offer top quality PLC training to our customers,” said Dan McGonegle, RedVector Product Director. “Automation also allows a better quality of life for workers while maintaining quality and efficiency. This training can equip a novice with little or no PLC programming experience with the basic tools necessary to create a complete PLC program.”

    RedVector’s New Programmable Logic Controllers Online Training Course Series Includes the Following Courses:
    – Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) – Introduction and Theory of Operations
    – Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) – Logic Operations
    – Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) – Hardware, Inputs, Outputs, Discrete/Analog
    – Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) – Programming a PLC System
    – Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) – Design and Installation of a PLC System
