Learn PLC

well engineers will be mostly interested in this.

PLCs (or Programmable Logic Controllers) are widely used in factories, and the industrial sector.
These babies control the way the industrial process goes, they can open a valve when a button is pushed some where, they can start cooling when there is over heat, almost any thing if they were well programmed.

Even though there are more advanced versions of these PLC's such as PAC (Programmable Automation Controllers), PLC's are still somehow dominant in the industrial market.

PLCS.net  is a web site aiming to teach people even without proper background how PLC's work.



It also provides tutorials (with animation sometimes).



 

It is rather a good resource for starters anyway.

Check it out, hope it is of use to you :)

Welcome to Tech Street

That's right, Tech Street not Wall street.

Before I say any thing about this site, I must tell you that it is not a free resource, it charges you for its information.

Tech street is a resource for Industry codes and standards, you can dig for standards issued by IEEE for example.

Mainly, people working in the industrial sector or researchers working on manufacturing a certain product, and need to produce it according to certain standards, will benefit from such a site.

It also contains tools to manage the information you might need for such purposes.

Start by downloading free previews, techstreet fact sheet, or any thing you might find free :)

Control Automation INSTRUMENTATION

Through my career as am instrument engineer, I was always looking for instrumentation knowledge bases on the web.

What makes instrumentation attractive is that it combines multiple technical fields, programming, telecom, sensors, electronics...etc.

One of the major sites was PAControl.com

It contains a lot of useful information and links along with tasty PDF's to download for free.

One thing I noticed was that the update for this site is not so frequent, yet it still contains a lot of useful information.
