I was wondering if anybody could tell me where I can find some works about PLC on the internet!

What works would you like?
You are already at the best place to learn PLC's!

Look to the top of your screen. Click on "LEARN PLCS".
If this step is no longer necessary, search the web for "PLC". Just beware not to be drown in the info.

Wouldn't it be nice if there were works of fiction that talked about PLCs? In the movies, all you ever see is the Batcave, or Dr. Evil's secret hideout with scores of computers. But what about the team of engineers who did the installation and startup?
Literature talks about the machinery in factories, but never about the "brains" behind the machine (unless that "brain" turns evil and develops human intelligence - something I've only rarely seen in the PLC).
Wouldn't it be great to have literature that included - or even better, was about - PLCs?
The Old Man and the PLC (Hey - I know that guy!)
PLCs Don't Eat the Daisies (comedy in which an engineer creates a PLC controlled lawn mower)
I Was a Teenage PLC Programmer (obviously a horror movie about spagetti code)
Let the tangent begin....

In fact, you can find many good site about industrial control in China. Why do you not try them?

I do not know if they are supposed to be links but if they are they do not work. I was looking forward to reading the stories. The titles look very interesting.

I think we're all guilty of actually sliding our mouse over 'em hoping for a link... :embar:
Sorry Allen, I can't think of any clever 'twisted' titles. Oh wait, how about Oliver Twisted-pair ?

I like The Old Man And The PLC as I am one of those guys! Or so the kids tell me but they are particularly cruel, saddistic and sarcastic at times. I wonder who they got those traits from.

Logic has it's place in fiction:
Sherlock Holmes and the Singular Case of the Plural Green Mustache (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0296850)
This one should help with the "be the machine" exercises:
Automation Elf (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0252670)

And then there's my official anthem for difficult PLC troubleshooting:
