PLC - Allen-Bradley ControlLogix

Target Group

This course is designed for engineers who work with Allen Bradley ControlLogix or CompactLogix PLC systems. The objective of this course is to provide sufficient knowledge and skills to be able to develop, modify or maintain a ControlLogix system.

(Pre) Knowledge

To join this course, a good working knowledge of Windows is required. Knowledge of Allen-Bradley PLC-5 or SLC-500 processors is an advantage, but not required.

Global Contents

During this course an overview will be given of the functionality of the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix family of controllers and how these can be programmed using the RSLogix 5000 software. Programming, documenting and on-line monitoring with the RSLogix 5000 software using the Ladder Logic programming language forms the main part of the course. RSLogix 5000‘s user interface is friendly, so users quickly learn the basic functions.


ATS courses are given by highly qualified trainers, with practical knowledge, in professional ATS training centres or On-Site. Prior to the course an intake conversation can take place to define the participant(s) and the company's requirements. Presentations (theory and examples) as well as practical exercises bring the courses to life. ATS courses are interactive; the trainer will always make sure the training contents link back to your situation.
