This book was developed to be an easy-to-understand introduction to the world of programmable logic controllers. Four of the top players in today’s PLC market are chosen to be discussed and used for illustrations. We chose Siemens SIMATIC S5, Mitsubishi, Telemecanique, Mitsubishi and Spreacher + Schuh. The book was developed to be as generic as possible. The hands-on programming projects were
developed for all the following brands of PLCs hands-on programming projects are :
1-Temperature controller system
2-Conveyor Controller to transfer raw materials
3-Designing an elevator controller system
4-Automatic rising parking gate barrier
5-Ceiling mounted hoist crane

All these involved projects are completely worked and the user should be able to adapt the solution to any other PLC at hand.
There is a quotation that I have seen, which I am told was originally stated by Confucius. I present it here as a very practical statement on how the human mind approaches the learning process:

I see, and I remember. I hear, and I forget. I do, and I understand.—Confucius

One of the best ways to understand something is to get your hands on it  and actually experiment with it. In PLC, this means writing many small programs and actually using software and hardware to test it to make sure you have understood how to use the instructions to do what you intend a PLC to do.
In this book, we designed five involved project, defined all phases and issued needed to be taken care of hardware and software wise and finally to come up with ladder logic program to do the job. Hence, this book is actually developed for the electrical technicians, maintenance persons, machine design engineers, and students whom need to learn the basics about today’s modern PLCs.
