Course Code: CCP411
Duration: 4.5 days

Register for this class

Course Purpose:

This course introduces you to advanced programming techniques and instructions that will assist you in successfully configuring and programming a 1785 PLC-5 system using RSLogix5 software.

Throughout the course, your instructor will demonstrate how to use advanced programming instructions and techniques to create a functional ladder logic project within a PLC-5 system. After each demonstration, you will be given an application-based exercise that provides you with an extensive hands-on practice in using the RSLogix5 software to program a PLC-5 processor.

By following the procedures in the job aids provided with the course materials, you can immediately apply what you have learned in this course to your job.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, you will design and create SFC and ladder logic programs by performing the following actions:
· Set up a PLC-5 system on a Data Highway + (DH+) network
