Who Should Attend
Individuals who are responsible for developing, debugging, and programming Logix5000 controllers using the Logix Designer application with function block diagrams should attend this course. Also, individuals who use ActiveX controls in an operator interface, such as FactoryTalk® View ME software, should attend this course.
To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:
To enhance and facilitate the students’ learning experiences, the following materials are provided as part of the course package:
- Student Manual contains the topical outlines and exercises and is used to follow presentations, take notes, and work through exercises
- Studio 5000 Logix Designer and Logix5000 Procedures Guide provides the steps required to complete basic software tasks common to all Logix5000 controllers
To gain real-world programming experience, you will be given a functional specification for a fictitious batch process mixer, where bulk ingredients are mixed to produce a product. You will be the programmer for this batch mixer and must follow the functional specification, which will be the basis for all hands-on exercises in this course.
After completing all exercises, you will have developed a Logix5000 project for the fictitious batch process mixer. As you develop your project, you will be given opportunities to run it using a ControlLogix – No Motion (10-slot chassis) workstation (ABT-TDCLX3-C). This programming and process-based application experience can then be transferred to your own job responsibilities.
Next Level Learning
Once you have mastered the function block diagram skills covered in this course, you will be able to expand your Logix5000 programming knowledge by attending other Logix5000 programming courses, such as the Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 4: Kinetix 6000 (SERCOS) Programming course (CCN145).
