Ladder Logic programs often contain a combination of contacts, coils, timers, and counters with additional instructions manipulating data in the program at the word level. The Intermediate Programming & Troubleshooting course explores the Compare, Compute, Data Conversion, File Manipulation, and Message instructions. Programs using these instructions include data gathering, calculations, date and time stamping, shift reports, data concentration, totaling, averaging, etc.

Students in the Intermediate course begin developing the skills necessary to trace the flow of word information into, through, and out of logic programs using the Word and File Manipulation instructions. This additional programming knowledge provides the ability to comprehend and troubleshoot detailed control circuits. In addition, the system status and diagnostic data is reviewed and used to help diagnose and solve in-plant control problems quickly.

Refresh knowledge of the major functional components of the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix programmable control system as it relates to your facility’s installation.
Discuss design considerations for system architecture and communication system layout.
Review issues to consider when replacing failed controllers and modules.
Reexamine differences and capabilities of Local, Universal Remote, DeviceNet, ControlNet, and Ethernet I/O systems.
Refresh knowledge of the Contact, Coil, Timer, and Counter instructions.
Explore and test the functionality of the Comparison, Math, Data Conversion, File Manipulation, and Message instructions.
Explore in detail the application and use of periodic versus continuous tasks.
Read and write information on a communication network with the Get System Value (GSV) and the Set System Value (SSV) instructions.
Create methods to test programs, develop traps, and follow the flow of information through a series of instructions.
Develop advanced troubleshooting skills, learn to gather clues to help eliminate non-problem spots, and draw attention to possible problem areas.
Use the programming software as a diagnostic and troubleshooting tool.
Develop a thorough understanding of, and the safety issues related to, Forcing in the Logix (ControlLogix) PLCs.
