Cumming, GA --- February 8, 2007 --- AutomationDirect has announced the launch of its new Video Tutorial and Training website, learn.automationdirect.com. Divided into major product categories, the site helps answer frequently asked questions on a wide range of automation topics from “Selecting a PLC” to “Building a Combination Manual Motor Starter.” Other topics include HMI and PLC software features, the basics of sensors, motors and motion control, and more. Typically, the presentations are divided into several one to 30 minute segments so the viewer can watch a specific topic without having to view the entire presentation.
Each product section of the site provides links to relevant information on other AutomationDirect sites, including the main store, Automation Notebook and product sites such as aboutplcs.com. The site also includes links to product selectors for choosing the correct product in categories such as touch panels, power supplies, proximity sensors and AC motors.
Each page of learn.automationdirect.com includes a link to a suggestions page allowing feedback and suggestions on information currently on the site. Visitors can also provide suggestions for future tutorial topics.
The Learn site will continue to grow as videos are added covering more products as well as general information about industrial control. The home page of the site will have information about new titles and where to find them once released. To visit the site, use the URL http://learn.automationdirect.com.
