SEMESTER 2

SESSION 2013/2014

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this subject, the student should be able to:

1 Describe the concept of Automation, Programmable Logic Controller (PCL) and their components. (PO1, C2)
2

Solve well-defined problems based on provided information by using PLC, Pneumatic, Hydraulic and proper components to
achieve automation. (PO2, CTPS3)

3 Demonstrate connection based on symbols and diagram given. (PO3, S4)


2.

Synopsis
This subject will introduce a fundamental of the automation in manufacturing sector, their components such as actuators,
sensors as well linear and rotary transportation devices. It will also covers on programmable logic controller (PLC) as the
main controller including its definition, main hard components, PLC programming languages, interfacing PLC with computers.
And will also learn how to integrates PLC hardware and software and their components.
