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.
