13361 Gideon’s TrailKeystone, SD 57751April 10, 2008Dr. Alfred R. BoysenDepartment of HumanitiesSouth Dakota School of Mines and TechnologyRapid City, South Dakota 57701Dear Dr. Boysen:I am submitting the following report, “Programmable Logic Controllers and Ladder Logic,” for English 279 – Technical Communications I.This report discusses: 1) PLC and controls history, 2) PLC components, 3) ladder logic,and 4) ladder logic programming.I would like to take this time to thank you Dr. Boysen, for making this class the firstEnglish class I have enjoyed. Your teaching techniques are one of the main reasons in mycontinued interest in English and the liberal arts. Your flexibility with me and my owntechniques has helped me to learn more about myself as well. This is the first paper that Ihave enjoyed writing in quite a long time, and this is because I was allowed to write itabout what I wanted to write about. When I enter the workforce, I will remember whatyou have taught me so that I may be better able to communicate my ideas to mycoworkers, investors, or whoever else it may be. In this report I hope to further thereader’s understanding of logic controllers and ladder logic.Sincerely,Greg P. ZimmermanElectrical Engineering Undergraduate2
