$1,495.00 for each attendee over 4. 

We put the Factory into this course and we can put this course into your factory.

The curriculum for this series is designed for electricians, technicians and engineers that have little or no experience with programmable automation controllers (PAC). It is also suitable for technical personnel with experience using controllers other than Allen Bradley as well as those that need a refresher. The course starts at the most fundamental level with PACs and progresses with each additional Lecture/Lab combination.

The primary hardware platform used in this course will be CompactLogix with RSLogix5000 programming software. With the expansive range of concepts to cover with the Logix Engine, any discussion of older hardware platforms(RSLogix500/PLC) will be incidental in clarifying the 5000 Logix Engine.

Upon completion of this course, the learner takes away a solid understanding of what a Programmable Automation Controller is, how PACs are implemented and the necessary skills to analyze ladder logic diagrams for the purposes of troubleshooting, editing existing logic and adding new logic to integrate process improvements of  the process/machine controlled by the PAC.

The learner will take away a solid understanding of what a PAC is, how PACs are implemented, and the necessary skills to analyze ladder logic diagrams for the purpose of troubleshooting the processes/machines controlled by a PAC. Attendees take home the project manual.

In the photo above, the PAC is a CompactLogix. We always bring enough laptops, software licenses and PAC learning stations to limit the number of learners on a station to a maximum of 2.


Some of the lecture subjects and supporting lab projects with a real PAC:

Computer hardware and operating systems on the shop floor

What is a programmable automation controller?

What is machine control and what is process control?

Mastering RSLinx w/Ethernet & RS232 on the shop floor – reducing downtime…

Using RSLogix5000 as a troubleshooting tool – reducing downtime

Troubleshooting PAC Hardware – reducing downtime…

Recognizing and troubleshooting communication protocols and adapters…

Troubleshooting manufacturing processes with RSLogix5000 to reduce downtime…


A Certificate of Completion will be available for all attendees.

A Certificate of Competency awarded for successful participation in monitored tests at the end of each day of participation.
