Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s) are the foundation for manufacturing and the industrial IoT. Developers are probably used to purchasing off-the-shelf PLC controllers, but it is possible to build a simple low-cost PLC controller using microcontroller components. In this course, we will explore PLC fundamentals and how we can create our own internet connected PLC controller using an STM32 microcontroller.

April 27 – Day 5 – PLC Application Design

In this session we will setup a test PLC application that controls several I/O devices over the internet through a mobile device. Developers will get to design their very own PLC application. We will then review the major points that developers need to take-a-way and implement a PLC in their...
