4 days

This course is designed to introduce the trainee to control systems with programmable logic controllers (PLCs).  It includes intensive practical classes with live PLCs, modules, field devices and industrial process simulator systems.

At the end of this training, trainees will be able to

  • Set up and wire Allen Bradley PLC control systems from scratch
  • Set-up, wire and program Allen Bradley  PLC control systems from scratch
  • Establish communication with PLCs using RS links software.
  • Troubleshoot basic programs trace faulty SLC 500 PLC/modules and replace them.
  • Perform basic PLC  programming(discrete signals) and download to PLCs
  • Modify existing programs for different applications.
  • View the status of SLC-500 input and output data tables
  • Configure the I/O for a PLC project
