This course covering the Studio 5000 ladder logic PLC Training Basic is for any of you who may have used or had exposure to a conventional PLC, but with little or no exposure to Studio 5000 used in any of the 4 platforms where it is used. It is also for First Time Users with very basic knowledge of PLC's generally. This software, and the Rockwell Automation platforms that use it, is very powerful and for me is my PLC software and hardware of choice, Very user-friendly.
I shall be your instructor during this training and I have had many years of practical experience creating projects and programming PLC's, HMI's, commissioning, and face-to-face training. I also possess a SAQA Further Education and Training Certificate: Measurement, Control and Instrumentation. This is South African but recognized in many countries internationally.
The course will start by introducing you to the 4 platforms using Studio 5000 and explaining the differences.
Next, I will cover with you, the steps taken to create a Studio 5000 project and make it work.
Who Should Take This Course?
This Studio 5000 ladder logic PLC Training Basic course is designed as an introductory course for users who have had exposure to PLC ladder programming but limited or no exposure to Studio 5000.
This course is also strongly recommended if you are a user of PLC5 or SLC500 and you are upgrading to Controllogix or Compactlogix and you will then be a new user.
This is a basic course, so if you are an experienced user of Studio 5000 you might get bored.
Listed below are some of the topics I will cover with you in this course.
An explanation of all the different platforms using the Studio 5000 software.
I will show you how to create an Studio 5000 project from scratch.
You will learn the scheduling mechanism used by Studio 5000 in the form of Tasks, Programs and Routines.
Setting up and navigating the software will teach you the functions of the toolbars and setting up the color scheme preferred by you.
How can the program flow within a project behave? I will show you using instructions such as JSR, MCR and others.
You will learn how to program a ladder routine using the most popular instructions such as Bits, Timers, Counters, and many others.
I will show you how to create Tasks, Programs and Routines.
You will learn how to establish communication between the computer and PLC using RSlinx.
This is just a short description explaining what you will learn but there is a lot more that you will learn if you take the
Studio 5000 ladder logic PLC Training. Basic.
There are a number of quizzes that you can complete after each section to help you reinforce your knowledge and gain confidence using the software. There are also some practical labs for you to complete with a solution attached where I will be demonstrating my solution.
At the end of the course, you will feel confident creating and running a project, interrogating an existing project and carrying out necessary changes to a running operation.
The majority of the course consists of video tutorials where I will explain all the different aspects of RS Studio 5000 and demonstrate the use of the software for each of these aspects.
The more you can use the software, the better you will be, Then the next course which will cover advanced options of RS Studio 5000, will be of real benefit to you.
So if you are really serious about learning Studio 5000 using platforms such as Controllogix, Compactlogix or even Softlogix then this course is for you. Enroll on this course and you can be learning Today.
Who this course is for:
- Electrical and instrumentation technicians and engineers, Control systems specialists. Anyone currently using a different PLC and is in the process of changing to RSlogix/Studio5000. This is not for computer programmers or web designers.
I was born in the UK, Educated in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. I am married with 1 daughter, also married and I now have 2 grandchildren.
I studied at Chesterfield College of Technology up to National Certificate level in electrical engineering as well as serving a full 5-year apprenticeship as an Instrument Mechanic. This was followed by an extensive UK career where I was involved in maintenance and commissioning as a Commissioning Engineer travelling to different companies all over the UK. This involved exposure to many different production facilities.
In 1981, I was offered a position as Instrument Foreman with Sasol, Secunda, and this is when I emigrated with my family to South Africa. I was responsible for all instrumentation issues on 5 Sasol units. Sasol is a major PetroChem facility within South Africa
After Sasol, in 1991, I moved to Johannesburg where I was employed at Babcock Engineering and Davy International as Senior Instrument Engineer, overseeing projects in Botswana and in the steel industry.
I obtained my first full-time training position at Fisher Rosemount as Training Manager. presenting courses on the DeltaV and RS3 DCS systems. I was also involved in many commissioning projects involving DeltaV and RS3 DCS systems.
I was then offered a position as Training Consultant with Rockwell Automation with whom I have been associated 18 years even since official retirement. I recently completed a long-term commissioning assignment for Rockwell USA in Nigeria, commissioning a power management system for a gas to liquid project at Escravos.
In 2005, I spent time in Germany at Hirschmann who are one of the world leaders in Ethernet technology. I was the first certified Hirschmann trainer in the whole of Africa.
I also possess a SAQA Further Education and Training Certificate: Measurement, Control and Instrumentation. This is South African but recognized in many countries internationally.
I have completed many courses over the years on Instrumentation, Fisher Control Valves, All the Rockwell systems and networks. In addition, I have received training on Compressor Control, DeltaV DCS and RS3 DCS systems.
My experience is very extensive across many instrumentation and control system fields, particularly PLC’s, Networks and HMI’s.
Throughout my career, I have travelled extensively mainly in Sub Saharan Africa and the Middle East, specifically Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait. In Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Mali, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Botswana. In 2019, I was on assignment in Eritrea giving training on Hirschmann technology. I have also spent some time in Egypt. More recently, I have travelled to Mozambique and Cote D'Ivoire to facilitate training courses.
I am always available for any short to medium-term projects either in a Training or Support capacity.
