Users of this PLC simulator gain years of troubleshooting experience in just days.

Business Industrial Network (BIN), a leader in Programmable Logic Control (PLC) training for engineering and maintenance professionals world-wide, announced today that BIN will provide the first PLC troubleshooting software of its kind to select clients around the world. “Troubleshooting PLC Circuits 1” has been designed for use by industrial training instructors, engineering supervisors, students, maintenance personnel and experienced trades people to learn how to effectively troubleshoot and maintain electrical equipment and systems that contain PLC controls.

“There is a real need in the market to provide instruction in the troubleshooting of PLC controls,” said Don Fitchett, President of BIN. “After working with developers many months on this software, I am very pleased with the detail and accuracy the real world simulation delivers based on my decades of PLC experience. Organizations and companies utilizing this program will learn how to identify defective input, output, and PLC control modules using a variety of specific techniques for diagnosing malfunctions and troubleshooting circuits, all in a safe environment. Unlike other PLC simulators which focus on a single PLC vendor, our customers who will use the PLC Troubleshooting Software will learn how to troubleshoot PLC’s from multiple vendors,” he continued.

Designed by Simutech Multimedia, the software provides instruction on PLC-related safety and best practices for troubleshooting PLC’s. Students will gain skill while being allowed to practice and develop effective troubleshooting techniques for PLC systems. This PLC simulation offered by BIN differentiates itself from other PLC simulations software as it actually has modules that teach about PLC related safety and best practices in test for troubleshooting skills.
