Student review: “I can honestly say that I have learned more with this course than I did with A-B's version. I feel so much more confident with communications between the computer, drivers, and the plc. And I understand better the functions and the processes that are taking place in the plc regarding XIC's, TON's, and Counters. This has really opened my eyes!” – R.A..

Course Requirements and Questions

After purchasing this course, the only requirement to take the course is an Internet Connection to access this website.

That said, students who would like to complete the optional hands-on exercises should read the below:

While the hands-on exercises in this course are completely optional, it's understandable that many students want to complete them as part of their learning journey.

If that's you, below are two common options you can choose from:

1) You either have, or can acquire, a physical MicroLogix 1000 or 1100 (if using the free version of RSLogix) or a MicroLogix 1200, 1400, or 1500 and the paid version of RSLogix Micro. This, along with your software installed and working on your PC, would be the ideal situation to complete the optional hands-on exercises, however we know most students will not have access to the hardware.

NOTE: A common question we get is if we provide hardware or software with this online course, and since both are many times the price of this course, we do not.

2) For those who don't have access to a physical MicroLogix PLC and software license, we do walk students through how to download the free version of RSLogix Micro, as well as the free PLC Emulator, Emulate 500, and together they can be used to complete most of the optional exercises.

Note: Currently, Rockwell states their free RSLogix PLC and Emulation software supports these Windows versions:

  • Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit
  • Windows Vista, Home or Business
  • Windows 7, Home or Pro
  • Windows 8, Home or Pro
  • Windows 10 (Unofficial, instructor tested)
