Logic Design Inc. announces New PLC Interactive Learning Suite
Full integration of PLC simulation with the most up-to-date course material. TORONTO, CANADA, June 10, 2001 - Logic Design Inc. today announced the launch of its new Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) Technician CBT program with full emulation of the Rockwell ControlLogix PLC system.
Although the product is new, it has been in the planning stages for over 6 years, according to Kevin Fullerton, Director of Product Development for Logic Design Inc. "It was always our intention to provide fully-functioning PLC simulation, and our CircuitLogix electronics simulator was the first on the market to provide basic ladder logic simulation many years ago". With LogixPro PLC simulation, students can design, test, and run PLC programs, and the 3D Animations included in the tutorial material provide a virtual-reality environment for the presentation of many practical applications of PLCs in industry.
The PLC computer-based training package provides a fully functioning PLC simulator with 19 modular lessons covering everything from relay logic to counters, timers, sequencers, math functions, advanced programming languages, and an introduction to Robotics. According to Fullerton, the course material was developed in direct partnership with industry leaders. "We had already established strong partnerships with over 200 companies in the manufacturing industry through our development of the Electro-Mechanical CBT, and it was a great benefit to us to have this direct connection with industry. The end result is a very power learning resource and a highly interactive and engaging learning environment".
The PLC Technician CD-ROM operates on the Windows 98, 2000, NT, and XP. Single-user copies are priced at $399. Multi-user site licenses for corporate networks and labs are also available.
