This course covering the RSlogix5000 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 RSLogix5000 used in any of the 4 platforms where it is used. 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 practical experience creating projects and programming PLC's, HMI's, commissioning and face to face training.
The course will start by introducing you to the 4 platforms using RSlogix5000 and explaining the differences.
Next, I will cover with you the steps taken to create a RSlogix5000 project and make it work.
Who should Take This Course?
This RSLogix5000 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 RSLogix5000.
This course is also strongly recommended if you are a user of PLC5 and you are upgrading to Controllogix and you will then be a new user.
This is an introductory course, so if you are an experienced user of RSLogix5000 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 RSLogix5000 software.
I will show you how to create a RSlogix5000 project from scratch.
You will learn the scheduling mechanism used by RSLogix5000 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 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 RSLogix5000 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 RSLogix5000 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 RSLogix5000, will be of real benefit to you.
