The participants were introduced to PLC-based systems, equipped with various types of sensors such as mechanical sensors, proximity sensors, temperature control, water level control, DC motor control, and AC motor control. Mechanical and proximity sensors were used for input or to create different logic functions, timer operations, and counter operations. Proximity sensors, including optical, inductive, capacitive, and limit switches, were demonstrated in the hands-on sessions. In addition to this, students received an overview of HMI and SCADA systems. Finally, the students were introduced to the programming languages used to develop PLC logic in industrial applications.
