Who should attend

This course is intended for all Technicians, Supervisors, Engineers and Designers, who are involved in the design/operation of Programmable Logic Controller in factory automation.

About the course

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) have been an integral part of factory automation and industrial process control for decades. PLCs control a wide array of applications from simple lighting functions to environmental systems to chemical processing plants. These systems perform many functions, providing a variety of analog and digital input and output interfaces; signal processing; data conversion; and various communication protocols. All of the PLC's components and functions are centered around the controller, which is programmed for a specific task.

This course is designed to teach the student the purpose, uses, and basic applications of the SLC 500 programmable logic controller (PLC) in industrial environments utilizing RSLogix 500 software to program the AllenBradley PLC.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the purpose, functions, and operations of a PLC
  • Identify the basic components of the PLC and how they function
  • View a directory of processor files using PLC software
  • Establish communications with a PLC
  • Restore and monitor a PLC processor file using PLC programming software
  • Run a PLC processor file using PLC programming software
  • View the status of the SLC-500 input and output data tables
  • Create a PLC project using PLC software
  • Configure the I/O for a PLC project using PLC software
  • Enter a basic PLC program using PLC software
  • Save a PLC program to a disk using PLC software
  • Edit a PLC program using PLC software
