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.
