2.The Five Disciplines of PLC Leaders [Perfect Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: June 22, 2011

Just as it takes discipline to successfully run a marathon or to master a musical instrument, effective leadership in a professional learning community (PLC) requires more than simply trying harder: it requires training. In The Five Disciplines of PLC Leaders, Dr. Kanold provides a complete, focused system of practices for honing personal leadership skills in the five areas that will have the greatest impact on a school organization's success. PLC leaders must create a compelling vision, allow autonomy within defined boundaries, lead by serving, manage their personal energy levels, and inspire others to create a legacy of excellence.
Dr. Kanold digs deep into the critical questions leaders must ask themselves and the practices they must master and model for others. Using research and decades of experiences working in PLCs, he shows leaders how to develop their own leadership skills while also helping others build leadership capacity. This rich resource includes reflection exercises and study guides to help readers find their own path toward effective PLC leadership.
* Helps educators to clarify their personal vision for the PLC and align daily practices with their goals
* Explores strategies for cultivating individual and team-level autonomy within a culture of accountability and high expectations
* Shows how to create a culture of service that begins with the leader
* Explains how to lead a balanced work life that energizes self and others
* Describes how to foster networks of commitment within the community

3.Programmable Logic Controllers [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: September 3, 2010 | ISBN-10: 0073510882 | ISBN-13: 978-0073510880 | Edition: 4

This fourth edition of Programmable Logic Controllers continues to provide an up-to-date introduction to all aspects of PLC programming, installation, and maintaining procedures. No previous knowledge of PLC systems or programming is assumed. As one reviewer of this edition put it "I honestly believe that someone with little or no background to PLC systems could take this book and teach themselves PLCs".

4.Programmable Logic Controllers Textbook w/ PLC Stimulation Software [Hardcover]

Book Description

Publication Date: July 15, 2009 | ISBN-10: 1605250066 | ISBN-13: 978-1605250069 | Edition: 2nd

Programmable Logic Controllers emphasizes practical use of the PLC in process and industrial control systems. The textbook begins with the basics of what a PLC is and does, then guides students through the fundamentals of programming the device. Applications, testing procedures, and operational aspects of PLC equipment and systems are discussed. This text covers the most common programmable logic controller functions, providing practical examples based on the widely used Allen-Bradley Small Logic Controller (SLC 500) series of PLCs. Wiring and programming of a PLC are covered thoroughly, using numerous examples. A supplemental Laboratory Manual provides a wealth of hands-on activities that will help students practice and hone their PLC programming skills.

Included in the textbook is a CD-ROM containing LogixPro simulation software. LogixPro is the ideal tool to facilitate student learning of the fundamentals of RSLogix ladder logic programming. The software allows students to practice and develop their programming skills when and where they want. LogixPro is not a replacement for RSLogix, nor is there support for file exchange or communication with actual Allen-Bradley products. The program, instead, provides a complete software-based training solution, eliminating the need for expensive PLC equipment.

7.Programming PLCs Using Rockwell Automation Controllers [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: March 6, 2003 | ISBN-10: 013094002X | ISBN-13: 978-0130940025

This practical, understandable approach to PLC's, sensors, and communications addresses Rockwell in a comprehensive and clearly written fashion. This book is meant to make readers comfortable with programming and use. Each topic is clearly explained through the use of common, easy to understand examples. The programmable logic controller (PLC) is an amazing piece of technology, and this book provides comprehensive coverage of all of the topics associated with this subject. Beginning with a basic foundation for the use of PLC's, the book proceeds to cover number systems; contacts, coils, and programming fundamentals; Rockwell addressing; timers and counters and their use in addressing; I/O modules, wiring, and digital and analog modules; math instructions; advanced programming; industrial sensors; communications, ControlLogix, and DeviceNet; safety and lockout/tagout; and IEC 611313 programming. For personnel who program and integrate industrial controllers and devices.

8.Programmable Logic Controllers: An Emphasis on Design and Application [Hardcover]

Book Description

Release Date: April 1, 2005

The complete reference for PLC programming. This book presents a comprehensive treatment of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) with an emphasis on program design. This text stresses an organized approach to developing PLC programs – “Given a set of operational specifications, how does one develop the PLC program?” This book develops the design process: the tasks involved, breaking the program into manageable pieces, standard code for the various parts, and handling the sequential parts of the problem. Throughout, the book contains example problems demonstrating good design practice and culminates in two full-length case studies. Due to its popularity, ladder logic is employed in the majority of the text. However, the text also comprehensively covers the other four IEC 61131-3 languages: function block diagram, structured text, instruction list, and sequential function chart. These languages are covered for five PLCs: Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, Allen-Bradley PLC-5/SLC-500, Modicon Quantum/Momentum, Siemens S7, and GE Fanuc. The main topics of this text are: 1. PLC programming languages (with emphasis on IEC 61131-3) 2. Structured approach to sequential problems 3. Good program design practice 4. Troubleshooting techniques 5. PID control 6. Sensors and actuators 7. Factory communication networks 8. Human-machine interface (HMI) Most chapters include student problems.

10.Compare & Contrast: Teaching Comparative Thinking to Strengthen Student Learning (A Strategic Teacher PLC Guide) (Strategic Teacher PLC Guides) [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: June 22, 2010 | ISBN-10: 1416610588 | ISBN-13: 978-1416610588

You're holding a new kind of professional development tool called a Strategic Teacher PLC Guide. Designed in partnership with more than 75 schools, Strategic Teacher PLC Guides make the important work of bringing high-impact, research-based instructional practices into every classroom easier than ever before. Each guide focuses on one strategy from the bestselling ASCD book The Strategic Teacher: Selecting the Right Research-Based Strategy for Every Lesson and serves as a complete professional development resource for a team of teachers (or professional learning community) to learn, plan, and implement the strategy in their classrooms.

This guide focuses on Compare & Contrast, a critical thinking strategy unique in its capacity to build students' memories, eliminate confusion, and highlight crucial similarities and differences. Research shows that comparative thinking strategies are the single most effective way to improve student learning. Compare & Contrast takes the natural human capacity to make comparisons and maximizes its effectiveness by leading students through a four-phase learning process that involves

* Describing each item separately using criteria.
* Capturing key similarities and differences on a comparison organizer.
* Forming and discussing generalizations and conclusions.
* Synthesizing learning by completing a relevant task.

This PLC Guide takes you and your colleagues on a "guided tour" of the Compare & Contrast strategy, enabling you to

* Explore the principles and classroom phases that make Compare & Contrast such an effective strategy.
* Experience a model lesson using the Compare & Contrast strategy and learn from sample lessons designed by other teachers.
* Plan a complete lesson using the Compare & Contrast strategy.
* Reflect deeply on your lesson to refine and expand your use of the strategy.
* Examine student work at various levels of proficiency and use your findings to plan next steps in building students' comparative analysis skills.
