This Activities Manual to accompany Programmable Logic Controllers, 5/e provides a wide variety of test questions and programming assignments designed to aid students in understanding the underlying principles of programmable logic controllers.
The Activities Manual parallels the text chapters in its treatment of subject material. Each chapter in this manual contains multiple-choice, completion, and true/false test questions. These questions are designed primarily to measure the student’s knowledge of the material presented in the text. McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect contains the answers to all Activities Manual test questions.
The Activities Manual programming assignments are designed to provide hands-on programming tasks tied to the text chapters. The range and the type of programming scenarios covered here will enable students to gain practical experience and valuable insights into the most current PLC automation technology. All programming assignments are generic in nature which allows them to be implemented using PLCs from different manufactures. Programs will vary to some degree with the particular PLC used and as such no answers for these assignments have been provided.
