I’ve actually just got a new job in instrumentation and to prepare I am wanting to swat up on PLC because it’s something I’ve had nothing to do with in the past. I really am a beginner and I don’t want to be caught with my trousers down! I start in July so at least I have plenty of time to train up. I do learn more from doing than reading though, so thought this would be the ideal way to go about things.
Because funds are low as I’ve been unemployed, could any of you suggest a cheap PLC system I could purchase to programme with my laptop and mess about on? I have looked on ebay at old siemens units as the manufacturer is what is used on site for PLC. But I keep finding out I have to buy one thing, then another and it goes on and on until it’s outwith my budget of around £60.
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
