The Basic course increases your ability to maintain and troubleshoot your Modicon Unity automation system. You will learn what the different types of FFB function blocks and how to modify and troubleshoot using these Unity elements. The Basic course will explore simple programs in IEC editors such as Elementary Functions (EF), Elementary Function Block (EFB), Derived Function Block (DFB), procedures and Derived Data Types (DDT). This knowledge will provide you the basis from which to comprehend complicated automation control circuits, use the system diagnostics more competently, and help you diagnose and solve in-plant control problems more quickly. This is a four (4) day course Prerequisite: Modicon Quantum General Openness or instructor approval.
