I have been programming Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) for the last 5 years. I've finally decided to take some time and share the knowledge I've acquired over the multiple roles I had within manufacturing sites. Arren Bradley has been my platform of choice due to the fact that I've received critical training focused on these controllers early on in my career.

It seems that the industrial manufacturing industry is extremely secretive about the technology and has [...]
So I've decided to dedicate some time and blog about what I'm accomplishing each week, what my setbacks are and where I'm currently headed. I believe that this practice will allow me to be more accountable for what I'm looking to achieve, to share some of my knowledge and hopefully answer some of the same questions others are having.

About 3 months ago, I decided to embark on a journey of launching multiple niche websites which I have been growing through organic content and absolutely no artificial link building. The two websites I currently own are still in their infancy and I continue to add content every single day. However, I'm starting to see a steady flow of Google listings as well as [...]

Last monday, we lost a drive at our facility in Fullerton. This post is dedicated to covering, reflecting and discussing how the whole process went and what could have done better or differently.

Both of these processors are used for I/O and communicate between each other through discrete Input / [...]
