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 control system.
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 solving.
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.
