  1. Video - Backstage Pass - Halloween

    For the past four years I have setup a Halloween display at my house for my neighborhood children to enjoy. Each year my total TOTs (tricker-or-treaters) have double to the point last year I had 1500 kids come through my garage for a fully automated Halloween show complete with animatronics air props etc.. Also each year I submit a DVD video in a contest to the Halloween-L people in hopes to win the contest for the USA. I never have won anything but this year I decided to contribute to the technical part of the contest so I video taped myself going over the basics of a MicroLogix 1000 PLC and how I apply my PLC at home for use during my Halloween displays.
    Last year is the last time I will be setting up my display however my legacy lives. I put up a website with videos and pictures of my props from the past three years. You can view or see more information at: http://www.plchalloween.com. Since I won't be returning to the Halloween scene in 2006 I've decided to share my videos I created. I will upload a series of videos to MrPLC.com as I see they can help those that are beginners much like they have helped Halloween-L fans.
    Very soon check in the online store I will release a DVD version of all my How-To-PLC w/Halloween for sale. The DVD will contain hi-quality videos however the low quality videos will remain free for download here at MrPLC.com. I hope you enjoy as I upload videos in the next coming weeks.
    This video contains some backstage stuff.

  7. How to Build a DC Sensor Tester / Demo Box

    Here are some pictures and a PDF of a diagram to build a DC sensor test box. It's dual NPN or PNP output with an off/on switch. All parts purchased at Radio Shack for under $20.00. Do not buy the same size box buy the next size bigger project box than what is shown in the pictures. I had a hard time getting two 9 volts crammed into this tiny enclosure.

  8. Step-by-Step Computer Upgrade Whitepaper

    I posted this whitepaper to support the new Computer Help and Networking forum on MrPLC.com. I wrote this document a long time ago about three or four years ago to help people make their own choices on how to upgrade their computers. I suppose that some of the information is OUTDATED but here you will learn allot about computer hardware by reading through this document.
    As a Controls Engineer you'll find yourself more and more required to understand computer hardware and most defiantly understand networking. Networking knowledge is a MUST in the Controls Engineering field now-a-days. Enjoy this whitepaper.
