The PLC system is the major key in the manufacturing and industrial sector today. PLC or Programmable Logic Controller is the system that makes machinery and systems work automatically. This system is responsible for all the growth in industry and manufacturing processes, which is why PLC systems are very important and needed by all kinds of industry. After completing this course, participants will have an understanding of the history of PLCs, be able to identify the primary components of a PLC system and have a basic understanding of the purpose and function of PLCs.
Designed For: Incumbent workers with little or no exposure to PLCs.
Provide engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills to enable them to diagnose, fault-find and maintain Allen-Bradley CompactLogix Programmable Logic Controllers, in a safe and competent manner. The Allen Bradley RSLogix 5000/Studio 5000 course provides learners with the skills to write simple software code, configure the hardware and enter comments. After completing this course, participants will gain confidence in connecting the programming software to the PLC processor, and monitoring the PLC software using the live software or a table of variables.
Designed For: Maintenance associates, technicians and engineers.
Knowing how to read electrical drawings is critical when installing new equipment and troubleshooting existing equipment. This workshop show participants how to decipher this common language for electrical equipment by covering how to read and interpret the symbols on an electrical schematic, the function of the input, logic, and output elements of a control circuit. This workshop also describes the steps for interpreting the relationships among the input, logic, and output components of an electrical schematic. Basic industrial math skills are also covered which aide technicians in problem solving activities.
Designed For: Electrical technicians, field engineers, project managers, inspectors, contractors and journeyman electricians who depend on effective skills and knowledge of industrial math and print reading.
This essential basic electricity training workshop provides a foundational understanding of how electricity works in commercial and industrial settings and includes hands-on electrical skills improvement activities. In this workshop, students are immersed in practical, real world examples that illustrate how electricity is distributed and used in their plants and facilities. They’ll learn how to use electrical test equipment in their everyday jobs before moving on to an in-depth discussion about major electrical components, where and how these electrical components work, and their purposes within electrical systems. The goal of this basic electrical training course is to teach students how to reduce electrical equipment downtime, improve overall efficiency and safety, and fix problems they’ve been unable to solve on their own.
Designed For: Maintenance Technicians and other non-electrical personnel working in industrial plants and commercial buildings.
This Motor Controls workshop covers the fundamental components of motor controls, devices that control the flow of current in circuits. Dangers of electric shock and other safety risks are significantly heightened when working with control devices. Control devices can be manual, mechanical, or automatic and are used in a variety of ways. It is necessary for those working with motor controls to understand control devices and apply their knowledge to appropriately select and operate these items according to application.
Designed For: Maintenance Technicians and electricians.
