Course Number: PLC-A263
Maximum Participants: 10 Students

Request a Quote on this course

Software Used: Studio 5000 / RSLogix 5000 with Windows 7
Course Description: Real world examples will be used for students to practice troubleshooting problems that occur with field devices as well as with the PLC. 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. They will then learn how to trace the 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.
Prerequisites: Students must be comfortable operating in a Microsoft Windows environment
