This is a highly relevant, industrially based training course that will update the skills and knowledge of Technicians and Engineers alike. The training course is ‘hands-on’ using industry standard PLC’s in a simulated environment. Through this approach the delegate will progress from learning the fundamentals of PLC application to writing, debugging and finally designing their own programs.
What Do Participants Learn?
To give an understanding of the operation, architecture and use of an industry-standard PLC for Control Purposes
By using a hands-on approach, enable the delegate to investigate the operation of the PLC through designing, building and testing typical programs in the ladder programming language using industry-standard PLC’s in a simulated environment
To allow the delegate to become familiar and confident with the PLC, Telemetry and SCADA environments
To understand the concepts of Radio Telemetry and acquire the knowledge relating to the application, limitation and use of frequency bands used
To gain an understanding and knowledge of common wire-based communication protocols
To disseminate and share experience and knowledge with other delegates through open session discussions hence broadening the knowledge base of all
To become familiar and knowledgeable with an industry compliant SCADA software package
To have the confidence and knowledge to apply the above techniques and principles to solve unfamiliar and bespoke situations in the workplace
Who Should Attend?
What Will the Learning Experience Include?
Comprehensive pre-program activities include:
