The mini-course will show you exactly how to download legitimate Rockwell Automation software packages to get you started in PLC Programming today.

What You Will Learn

By the end of this course, you will have installed and tested all the following software packages:

  1. RSLogix500 - Primary programming tool still used at many plants today. Allows you to practice ladder logic design, instructions & debug existing code.
  2. RSLinx Lite - Communication tool which allows you to communicate to actual PLC Systems or an Emulated one.
