Basic PLC Configuration and Programming Training

March 4 - March 7


Course Overview

The course starts by a review of industrial control systems before focusing on the PLC. It will then concentrate on the PLC configuration and operation. PLC hardware is dealt with to some extend for participants to be able to do wiring and understand some essential internal input and output PLC circuitry. Ladder logic, LD, as the programming platform using XG500 software will be covered in detail. Simulation using XG5000 and debugging is well covered as part of practical work. Participants will work on projects at the end of the training.


Course Objectives

After the course participant should be able to:

  • Describe the PLC, distributed control systems(DCS) and the SCADA as different industrial control systems

  • Describe the PLC architecture

  • Configure a plc

  • Program a PLC using ladder logic

  • Simulate and load project programs on the PLC to drive real world outputs.
