400 - 5 Day On Site Class - Connected Components Workbench w/Micro800 - $6,495.00 - 4 Learners or less
$895.00 for each attendee over 4. We can handle as many learners as you can pack into your classroom. One laptop per two trainees.
We put the Factory into this course and we can put this course into your factory.
The curriculum is designed for electricians, technicians and engineers that have little or no experience with programmable logic controllers. It is also suitable for technical personnel with experience using controllers other than Allen Bradley, as well as those that need a refresher on PLCs. The course starts at the most fundamental level and progresses with each additional day.
The hardware platform used will be Micro800 with Connected Components Workbench (newest Developers Edition) programming software. BUT...we will not be using actual Micro800 controllers. We will be doing all of the lab projects with the simulator which is free to download from Rockwell Automation
The learner will take away a solid understanding of what a PLC is, how PLCs are implemented, and the necessary skills to analyze ladder logic diagrams for the use of troubleshooting the processes/machines controlled by a PLC. Attendees take home: the 570 page set project manuals.
Why we put our emphasis on "Hands-ON" learning...
Some of the lecture subjects and supporting lab projects with a real PLC:
Computer hardware and operating systems on the shop floor
What is a programmable logic controller?
What is machine control and what is process control?
Mastering RSLinx for the shop floor – reducing downtime
Using Connected Components Workbench as a troubleshooting tool – reducing downtime
Troubleshooting PLC Hardware – reducing downtime
Recognizing and troubleshooting the communication protocols and adapters to reduce downtime
Troubleshooting manufacturing processes with CCW to reduce downtime
Micro800 processors and I/O – Hands-On Projects in class

It is not possible to exhaust the content in this set of manuals in a five-day course. The attendees can continue with these manuals on their own and it is an excellent reference for on the job situations.
