PLC Books

If you are seeking more information, these PLC Books listed below cover many topics,  I reviewed one for Siemens S7, a basic book on Ladder logic, two that cover programmable logic controllors in general,  one on the growing need for Industrial Cyber Security and one for Allen Bradley’s Controllogix. Check out these recommended PLC books from Amazon at the  bottom of this page.

PLC Basic Course with Simatic S7: this book is suitable for trade schools, technical colleges as well as private study. Inside you'll find the arrangement functioning of the PLC, program processing programming, logic operations and program input, momentary impulses timing functions clock generators counters, comparators. It has practical examples with simulators. It has sequence control systems it talks to safety regulations and has an appendix with solutions.

Cyber Security for Industrial Control Systems: this PLC book highlights issues that need to be addressed in industrial control systems. First an introduction to ICS or industrial control systems that include the business, cost, and competitive and regulatory drivers. It explains the difference between IT security and ICS security. The book also covers many of the threats to ICS such as hijacking malware, botnets, and  spam engines.

Learn How To Program And Troubleshoot Ladder Logic: is a very basic and very inexpensive Kindle book. This book's basis is RSLogix 5000. It contains: what is a PLC and What is  logic, Ladder Logic Instructions, Variables, Program Scan And Instructions, Creating A New Project, Defining And Creating Logical Code, Tasks Programs And Routines Input And Output Modules, Tag Types, Finishing The Code, and Wrapping It Up.
