45 - NEW! The Complete PLCLearn Series, RSLogix500 for Micrologix Controllers - Volume II


This is Vol. #2 of our newest set of lab project manuals...

This is not identical to the former orange and black volume one. Most of the projects are new and some moved from volume #1of this set.... developed specifically with the MicroLogix 1400 processor, the flagship of the MicroLogix family, but is compatible with all Micrologix controllers and can be adapted easily to SLC500 PLCs. 249 pages of full color step by step lab projects. Manual only...video lectures on YouTube (most of them free) and by paid subscription on Vimeo, cables and hardware are separate purchases.

This manual can be used with SLC500 and all Micrologix controllers; 1000/1100/1200/1400/1500...the 1000 has a different one shot instruction than the others...

In addition to lab projects this manual includes many technical discussions that support the understanding of industrial automation.


This manual starts out with the largest project in this course, a virtual machine with complete step by step instructions and explanations. There are many videos available that discuss all of the projects in both volumes, most are free on YouTube or as a paid subscription on Vimeo. 

The manual includes lab projects for some of the more obscure instructions as well as PTO, PWM, HSC, PLS and CIP Messaging.

It also includes a comprehensive section on Analog with projects and examples.


In the back of the manual, there are several partially developed and challenging projects for you to complete on your own.

Although you can execute some of these projects with other Micrologix controllers, the optimum use of this manual will be the result of using a Micrologix 1400. The 1766-L32BXB or BXBA is the recommended controller.

It is recommended that you build your hardware learning station using our Digital Field Device Simulator. An image of the units that we use in live classroom delivery is shown. Kits can be purchased on this site; pre-built units are special order only. Request a quote.

This digital field device simulator has six enhanced 4 state inputs and six LED outputs behind the pushbuttons. The processor is a 1766-L32BXB with the PTO/PWM outputs landed on orange terminals for external usage. One of the high speed counters is connected to the white terminals for use with devices such as encoders. Two additional inputs and outputs are extended to the blue and green, respectively, terminals for external input and output field devices.
