Software Used: RSLogix , 500, or 5000 with Windows XP Operating system.
Course Description: Students who attend this course will learn how to set up communication with the processor, go online with the project, and locate an output that will not energize such as a solenoid or relay. We use your plant programs as real world examples for practice, then load simulation programs into our workstations. Participants will learn how to trace an output through the program to determine the root cause of a problem, and find out why the PLC is not calling for the output to energize. During this process, students will learn about instructions in the PLC, and other troubleshooting tools that are available to minimize downtime. For this course, you must specify which version of RSLogix you are interested in. RSLogix 5 is software used to program the PLC-5. RSLogix 500 is used to interface with the SLC-500 processor, and RSLogix 5000 is used to program and troubleshoot the ControlLogix processor.
Prerequisites: Students must be comfortable operating in a Microsoft Windows environment
