New to programming ladder logic?

This tutorial will have you programming in no time. You will be introduced to ladder logic as well as RSLogix 5000 programming and configuration software. If you have RSLogix installed great, check out Hello World what is Ladder Logic. If you don’t then you need to get it. Fortunately for you

Allen Bradley allows you to download a free 90 day trial version of the software.

The software has a few limitations, it’s for offline programming and it expires after 90 days. You can write programs that work but you can’t download them into a PLC. Worst case scenario: you follow the tutorials on this site while writing the same code with your copy of the software and you get to see the code in action via the tutorial for free. You can get the free programming software here. Unfortunately the software is no longer available. If and when it becomes available again I will certainly put a link to it. Follow all the instructions on Allen Bradley’s  site to download and install your trial software.

Got your software installed? Great let’s jump in. Don’t have it installed yet? Great let’s jump in.
