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


This is Vol. #2 of the two-volume set of hands-on lab project manuals for learning how to program and troubleshoot SLC500 and Micrologix Controllers. Everything that you learn with these projects and video lectures will support the RSLogix/Studio5000 learning path when you begin that platform.

249 pages of full color step by step lab projects. Manual only...video lectures on YouTube , cables, hardware and software are not purchased on this site.

RSLogix500/Micro Starter Lectures...

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.
