What is "epo"

Here is my favorite motor control book: http://www.coxco.net/AC_Motor_Control_Book_p/b0020.htm

And PLC learner book:
http://www.coxco.net/Programmable_Lo...Cs_p/b0030.htm

I also bought the Conduit bending book and it is excellent too.
BTW, I'm not getting paid to advertise for these products, just found them very, very good.

I mostly learned by opening up control panels and taking the drawings and studying them. Start with some simple panels. Of course I have mostly worked in industrial environments and had opportunity to study panels and build panels.

Take a look at this white paper, it's also by SQD and covers the basics.
