This is the best Siemens #PLC simulator deal out there http://bin95.com/siemens-plc-simulator.htm because it is bundled with the industrial automation plant simulator so you can see how it will work out in the factory. Work out more bugs, have a smoother startup. Super inexpensive too when compared to other PLC simulators.
This Siemens PLC Simulator and Plant Simulation Software bundle make for a great Siemens training tool. Especially since both Siemens PLC simulator (s7 sps software)and the factory simulator (Factory I-O) interface with each other to give a full system hands-on experience.

I am sure we'll see more beginner level mini tutorials like this in the future.
This is the first free online Industrial Robot Programming Tutorial of the industrial robotics for beginners series. It introduces simple robotic arm design and axis. As it is part of our overall robotics and automation engineering syllabus.

+Marcus Wolschon Oh, ok, it needs CC, I understand now. As for requiring flash for desktop mode, yes there are setbacks. When BIN95 develops new ones, we steer away from flash, but the free lessons are from archive, so still use that technology instead of html5. But all current lessons being developed are html5, no swf files. We are considering letting the PAC lessons in html5 to be free online. We'll see, i know the development cost are higher.

Industrial Engineering Books - The Lean Green ones, as all mostly focus on practical application, so they are short (lean), and they all come in ebook (pdf) format, so they are green. Also because they are lean green, they don't cost much. So real world practical application advice for a few bucks equals great value!

Their name recognition is growing. Hope they recommend our (bin95) PLC training to all their automation customers, to enhance equipment maintenance support.

Every 3 months for a decade now, we have been recommending our (BIN95 PLC Training) Industrial training seminar attendees stay at this hotel, because they are the best. Just when you think there is no way they can get any better, offer any more, be any nicer... they come up with yet another way to make your stay spectacular.

Been using this company for about 20 years, Rick a honest wood hauler providing great service. (That dh424 guy must have been confuse, Rick stacks his 4x8, so customer know exactly what they are getting. Burning quicker is a good thing, means wood is seasoned [DRY] as advertised. :>)

The upkeep of facility and quality of room cleaning and front desk service indicate years of poor management. As a Best Western customer for years, i found this hotel to have an extremely low rating compared to any other Best western I have ever stayed in. Even lower rating than full size Holiday Inns (which are typically more ran down than Holiday Inn expresses.) Obvious facility deterioration/disfunction clearly shows management does not care. Electrical outlet in clear site as you 1st enter room cracked/broken, yet no one ever inspected, and replaced. Cleaning staff not trained to report such discrepancies (poor management). Just like electronic door lock, you have to lift up on door to get to open after keying. I reported to front desk microwave had oversized (wrong) glass rotary tray so that microwave door could not be closed without shoving plate off rollers, and wouldn't rotate for even cooking. Staff appears to give excuses first, then if you complain enough times, do something about complaint. I stayed there a week, they never replaced incorrect microwave part, or even followed up, or asked if problem was resolved. On check out, I let them know again, they never fixed, was met with immediate excuse, "I told maintenance". What they should have been saying or at least thinking, I am sorry, I should have followed up. Normally I would assume, an oversight, no big deal. But when i dropped laundry off at front desk, only to return at end of day and find out my laundry was not there, I was given a bizarre excuse by front desk, instead of 'I will call them right away'. Then when they called. I had to listen to argument back and forth, until I finally told desk clerk, quit with the blame game and just ask how soon can they get them, where are my cloths. Other signs of poor management besides inconsistencies in cleaning from one house keeper to the next over a week's time, was dirt build up in room. I had to stop wearing white socks around the room, because it appeared the carpet has never been shampooed since its installation. My white socks quickly became black. Dirt build up in corners of bathroom, top half of shower wall not cleaned for a long time, with grose splatter on it, TV screen all smeared, mirrors, etc. Under tables, white pellet things or spider eggs near spider webs. Turning TV to an angle revealed some kind of shredded paper or mouse beading under TV, etc. Etc.

I have stayed hear many times over the past years. The owners and staff are very dedicated to making your stay your home away from home. Very, very nice rooms and grounds too. Especially now they totally remodeled everything. New carpet, paint, pictures, furniture and more. Great people and great place to stay.
