ControlLogix & RSLogix 5000 Basics

This course is designed to familiarize plant technicians with the functions, architecture, and software in use in the ControlLogix PLC platform. Participants will learn basic skills to comfortably interact with the programming software, and to communicate with the PLC processor.

Unique features of this systems such as the tagged system of memory addressing will be explained. Participants will learn to use the built in search, monitoring and diagnostic features of the software. Setting and modifications to instructions such as timers & counters will also be covered.

This course is taught using ControlLogix PLC stations with I/O panels and a ControlLogix software simulation environment.

CONTROLLOGIX HARDWARE

Objective: Describe common ControlLogix hardware configurations

Activity: Configure a chassis with processor and I/O cards

Keying a specific model of input or output card to a specific slot is done in the software

PLC PROGRAMMING

Objective: Demonstrate how to construct control programs

Activity: Create projects and tags. Insert instructions and verify your project

Downloading a project file to the PLC and monitoring your tags is easy to learn

LOGIC INSTRUCTIONS

Objective: Explain and modify ladder instructions

Activity: Modify timers and counters, add new input, output and other bit level instructions. Work with word compares as well as compute and math instructions. Modify the light show program.

Basic logic is very powerful and easy to learn

PLC COMMUNICATIONS

Objective: List steps to configure serial and ethernet communications drivers

Activity: Establish communications with PLC and download programs

Work proficiently with RSLinx and set the project file path

PLC TROUBLESHOOTING

Objective: Isolate and solve system faults

Activity: Use trend and data monitoring tools to analyze problems

Find out how to use troubleshooting tools that are built right into the PLCs software
