Course Description

The course is a third level PLC class using the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, PowerFlex AC Drive (VFDs) hardware, plus additional remote components. The student should of knowledge of the material covered in the Basic and Intermediate ControlLogix course. The the focus of the Advance ControlLogix class is connecting remote devices to a ControlLogix PLC. Network connections used are Ethernet and DeviceNet. The course covers processor to processor connections (MSG instructions, Producer/Consumer tags), processor to remote I/O modules using a Ethernet network, VFD connections using Ethernet and DeviceNet, and remote component connections (photo-eye, Proximity Switch, I/O Blocks) using DeviceNet . Software applications used in the class are RSLogix 5000, RSNetWorx for DeviceNet, Bootp / DHCP Tool and RSLinx.
