Course Description:
The purpose of this course is to introduce the students to Industrial Automation. Students will explore
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Sensors, actuators and SCADA, all of which are fundamental to the
understanding of Industrial Automation. The PLCs to be covered in the course includes Allen Bradley and
Trilogix. The course will cover industry standards, PLC components, their application, fundamentals of ladder
logic programming, input/output modules, timers, counters, arithmetic and advance instructions. Overview of
SCADA and HMI and their interfacing with PLCs. Introduction to sensors and transducers and their interfacing
with PLCs. Fundamentals of process control will also be included.

Course Outcomes/Objectives:
The objectives of this course are:
• Gain an understanding of basic industrial automation.
• Learn how to program PLCs.
• Learn the basics of sensors and actuators.
• Learn how to program and interface programmable logic controllers with SCDADA
• Fundamentals of process control

Grading Policy:
Quiz Policy: The quizzes will be unannounced and normally last for ten minutes. The question framed is to
test the concepts involved in last few lectures. Number of quizzes that will be used for
evaluation is at the instructor’s discretion. Grading for quizzes will be on a fixed scale of 0 to
10. A score of 10 indicates an exceptional attempt towards the answer and a score of 1
indicates your answer is entirely wrong but you made a reasonable effort towards the
solution. Scores in between indicate very good (8-9), good (6-7), satisfactory (4-5), and poor
(2-3) attempt. Failure to make a reasonable effort to answer a question scores a 0.
Assignment Policy: In order to develop comprehensive understanding of the subject, assignments will be given.
Late assignments will not be accepted / graded. All assignments will count towards the total
(No ‘best-of’ policy). The students are advised to do the assignment themselves. Copying of
assignments is highly discouraged and violations will be dealt with severely by referring any
occurrences to the disciplinary committee. The questions in the assignment are meant to be
challenging to give students confidence and extensive knowledge about the subject matter
and enable them to prepare for the exams.
Lab Conduct: The labs will be conducted for three hours every week. A lab handout will be given in advance

for study and analysis The lab handouts will also be placed on LMS. The students are to
submit their results by giving a lab report at the end of lab for evaluation. One lab report per
group will be required. However, students will also be evaluated by oral viva during the lab.
Plagiarism: SEECS maintains a zero tolerance policy towards plagiarism. While collaboration in this course
is highly encouraged, you must ensure that you do not claim other people’s work/ ideas as
your own. Plagiarism occurs when the words, ideas, assertions, theories, figures, images,
programming codes of others are presented as your own work. You must cite and
acknowledge all sources of information in your assignments. Failing to comply with the SEECS
plagiarism policy will lead to strict penalties including zero marks in assignments and referral
to the academic coordination office for disciplinary action.

Tools / Software Requirement:

PLCs, their respective software and SCADA (Open Control)
