This course is designed for new Allen-Bradley SLC-500 users who want to build up a profound knowledge of the PLC and programming software.
To join this course a basic knowledge of programming an Allen-Bradley PLC system or comparable PLC-types is desired, but not required. Knowledge in the field of SLC-500 maintenance is also advantageous. Experienced engineers and programmers can follow this course in a shorter space of time.
During this course an overview will be given of the application functions of the Allen-Bradley SLC-500 family and the programming methods using the APS or Al Series or RSLogix 500* programming software. Detailed information about the application of this PLC-type and its possibilities will be explained.
Programming, documenting and on-line monitoring will be practised during the course using the APS or Al Series or RSLogix 500* software for the PC, the so-called Ladder Logistics program. The user interface is friendly to work with so that users should not find any problems in handling the basic application programming. The package offers application functions through keys, help screens and many options to program, to document and to test an SLC-500 program.
