At the completion of this training, the participant will be able to "talk through" and troubleshoot the PLC's ladder logic using the Logix5000 software in order to locate a "real" faulty input or output device, replace it, and get the process back up and running. It’s all about troubleshooting!
Next, each participant will wire the actual input and output (I/O) field devices to the PLC. This includes photo-electric and inductive proximity sensors, selector switches, pushbuttons, contactors, indicator lamps, along with the DC Power SupplyThe participants actually wire their own PLC trainer!
Using the RSLogix5000 software, the Communication Path will be configured along with the creation of Tags that will be used in the PLC’s ladder logic. The concept of “Real” and “Simulated” inputs and outputs will be covered, along with the troubleshooting tools of Toggling and Forcing. Next, Timer (TON, TOF, RTO, RTF) and Counter (CTU, CTD) circuits will be covered, along with One-Shot (ONS) and First-Scan (S:FS) instructions. Comparison Instructions (EQU, NEQ, LES, GRT, LEQ, GEQ, LIM) and Math Instructions (ADD, SUB, MUL, DIV, CPT) along with Set Bit if Zero/Negative (S:Z, S:N) will be thoroughly covered. The understanding of how a Jump (JMP), Master Control Reset (MCR), and Jump to Subroutine (JSR) functions, will be covered in detail.
NOTE: Numerous hands-on labs utilizing troubleshooting skills are included in all of the above subject matter in order to reinforce the lecture material.
