First off let me say ANY book on programing plcs and plcs in general are not going to be of use with out a plc or simulator to practice and verify what you learn and the books that I have run into use the Allen-Bradley logix addressing in the program. The book it self is thin, physically and material wise, but it gets down the core of what a plc is and moves quickly through the material and explained well. This book does what it is meant to do(be), a primer on Plcs and not a textbook on learning plcs.

ISBN-13: 9781594603310. ISBN-13: 978-0073510880. References 1. Pradeep Kumar Srivastava (2004), Exploring Programmable Logic Controllers with Applications, . ISBN-13: 9788176569330. Lecture Notes by A. M. Muhia.

Control engineering has evolved over time. In the past humans were the main method for controlling a system. More recently electricity has been used for control and early electrical control was based on relays. These relays allow power to be switched on and off without a mechanical switch. It is common to use relays to make simple logical control decisions. The development of low cost computer has brought the most recent revolution, the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).

This book is oriented to the people that work on and troubleshoot PLCs on the factory floor. It is directed at the actual problems and conditions that will be encountered within a realistic setting. The text is designed to present a clear, concise picture of how PLCs operate to the person that wishes to learn more about them.

A good basic PLC starter book that goes into the symbles and logic of PLC's. Has a good electric/electronic symble referance section at the back of the book. But programing them is something else as I have been told. But I never used it as I never got the job.
This is probably hands down the best book on PLC's that I have ever read. This book takes you from the beginning of understanding to the most complex problems helping you understand every step of the way. I addition it explains all the functions and functionality of PLC's. A Great Read
Warning: This book does not seem to have been checked by an editor.

Pros: This book has a lot of good information. The diagrams and symbols are great. Seems to have been written for the Electrical professional, so the style isn't bland. Keep this as a quick reference for symbols, ladder logic and diagrams.

Cons: The writing is non-linear and dis-organized, so expect to read passages over again. Information required to understand a specific passage is contained later in the book with no indicator. The excercises should be eliminated. There were a lot of trite redundancies and unnecessary verbage.

Conclusion: Read this book if you want to learn about PLCs. Kick back, pop a cold one and tackle 3-5 pages at a time in order to avoid serious brain freeze. Hint: Read the Wikipedia passage on PLCs before you read this book.
