Program drive parameters for a drive application. This course will teach students how to create a custom parameter group based upon drive applications. Throughout this course, the instructor will cover a range of topics from establishing communications with a PowerFlex 525 drive via a USB connection and Ethernet/IP network to test parameters of a PowerFlex 525 drive and control a drive in STUDIO 5000.
Learn what remote IO is and how to implement a POINT I/O system. The course will cover determining the quantity and type of I/O needed to test your system. This course will also show students how to calculate power requirements and decide whether an expansion power supply will be needed. Students will also add and configure an Ethernet adapter and I/O modules in a Studio 5000 Logix Designer project.
Introduces the concept of setting up and programming various safety devices including GuardMaster Smart sensors, Programmable safety relays and safety PLC’s, The course will focus on how to setup, program and integrate safety components into your automation project.
Explores two main topic areas: PLC and HMI machine applications. The learner will demonstrate the ability to learn to program a PLC they have not worked with before as well as an HMI they have not worked with before. The learner will integrate the study of curriculum, technical manuals, help files and previous knowledge to demonstrate their ability to learn new technology. Learner will develop several PLC applications and several HMI applications integrated with the PLC.
Continuation of SCADA Systems 1, learners will organize and develop FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) network/server-based application. Learners will have the opportunity to practice the skills needed to create/build detailed graphic displays, trend charts and data logs. Learners will learn how to configure alarms and set up system security, build data logs, and test their application using FactoryTalk View SE Network Distributed Application.
Introduces fundamentals with NFPA Standards the student will learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the AutoCAD Electrical software. Activities include create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, they are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical symbols, circuits, and databases.
Introduces the concepts of Industry 4.0 and the key aspects that workers will need to be prepared for in the intelligent factory setting. Robotic automation, smart manufacturing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) concepts will be explored.
Focuses on integration of a complete automated manufacturing cell. Typical components include programmable controllers, robot, sensors, drives, conveyors, pneumatics, hard automation, control wiring and vision systems. Students plan, wire, program, troubleshoot and develop an automated manufacturing process based on the “product” chosen by the group. All required programming and documentation for the entire automation system is required
