Prerequisite: Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers
Note: Textbook required
This course is designed to be taken after successful completion of the Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers course. Each trainee will write and interpret PLC ladder logic programs while troubleshooting and continuing to practice different programming techniques. This class provides a more advanced foundation to PLC’s in manufacturing, and includes PLCLogix500 while using the lab simulator for RSLogix 500 and SLC 500 series PLC software. Trainees will use MicroLogix 1000 PLC’s to control a conveyor belt while applying RSLinx 500 software. The course will also include troubleshooting and software development with a CompactLogix PLC applying RSLogix 5000 software.
