All of these video lectures are in support of The Complete PACLearn Series...Fundamental Programming Manual & Programming Examples Manual.
IGNORE all References to Page Numbers, Project Names and File Names in these videos...they have all changed with the newest edition of this set of manuals, but the content is the same.

We have purposefully eliminated any sequence numbers to allow free access to all of the lectures regardless of which edition of the manuals that you are using. There was a set of two manuals that are white/blue and white/green. They were replaced with one manual, quite fat, that is red/black. The current version is a set of two manuals that are both blue/black.

Opening RSLogix5000, exploring the menus and connecting with RSLinx...
Creating your first project from scratch...
Introduction to the relationship between the processor's database and hardware the interfaces to the real world (I/O).
Discussion regarding the I/O modules that you have to work with if other than what we install in our hardware training stations and used for this manual's lab projects.
Introductory interaction between your keyboard and bits in the processor's memory.
Keyboard interaction with memory locations that you have declared (specified).
Seemingly irrelevant...the "Just for Fun" lab projects allow you to poke the memory in the dark and observe unapparent behavior.
First chance to work with a rung of logic that responds to input devices and controls the state of an output device...lights and switches.
This lab is meant to tickle your curiosity.
Typically we buffer our I/O memory states to avoid the pitfalls of nonsynchronous program scan
More interaction between your keyboard, the logic and the memory locations.
Demonstrating the behavior of latch and unlatch instructions.
additional discussion on OTL & OTU...
Introduction to the most popular style of writing logic that has to maintain the state of a bit even after the conditions that set it are no longer the same.
Continuation of the previous discussion of seal-in logic.
The first installment of a lab project, practical in nature, that demonstrates the instructions that you have been learning.
The first of five segments on Add On Instructions, RSLogix 5000.
The most versatile instruction in a PLC/PAC
