Soft Logic: A Guide to Using a PC as a Programmable Logic Controller
Providing a practical overview of software-based logic control systems, this edition demonstrates how the personal computer, coupled with the right software and input/output hardware, may emerge as the next generation of programmable logic controller. It contains over 30 hands-on applications of soft-logic from HVAC systems to robotics machinery and includes a complete walk-through of an entire soft-logic system from design to implementation. The book also features a comprehensive chapter on communications schemes including a detailed discussion of DeviceNet.
