RSLogix-5, Rockwell 6200, or Advanced Interface (please specify)
To fully understand and troubleshoot a PLC based control system, you
must have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the controller. The
Advanced course completes the instruction set of the PLC-5 controller
by delving into the bit manipulation, process control, and program control
instructions. Placing the functionality of these instructions at your
command will allow you to create functional, efficient programs.
Review the major functional components of the Allen-Bradley PLC-5 programmable
Review of the instructions presented in the Maintenance & Troubleshooting
and Intermediate courses.
Explore and test the functionality of the Bit Modify and Move instructions
as they apply to your system.
Work with the block transfer functions to communicate with non-discrete
I/O modules or devices.
Discuss the program and process control functions and learn how to implement
them into your control system.
Apply these instructions to create and test your own programs in extensive
hands-on lab sessions designed to simulate a logical approach to problem
Look at the applications that require the ASCII and message instructions.
Revisit the Fault, Processor Input Interrupt (PII), and Selectable Timed
Interrupt (STI) subroutines.
Create methods to test programs, develop traps, and follow the flow of
information through a series of mixed instructions.
Develop advanced troubleshooting skills. Learn to create logical circuits
that will trap data for real-time analysis and circuit diagnostics.
Explore the application of Sequential Flow Chart (SFC) programming.
