Basic PLC Programming and Troubleshooting (E2)

Designed for the beginner with no previous experience, this class will cover basic programming steps, advanced functions and the student will gain insight into the cause and effect of machines being controlled by PLCs. Whether you wish to replace hard wired relay and timer systems, or you require shift registers, math functions and data manipulation, you will benefit from this course. You will get hands-on programming experience with the Omron CP1 programmable controller...a high powered PLC in a small package. Students will program utilizing Omron CX Programmer software. The second day, which is optional, will be an application workshop providing the student with an opportunity to work on real-world PLC programming problems. Bring a laptop computer, if possible.

Introduction to Control Electricity (ICE)

Airline has partnered with Applied Motion Technologies (AMT), a technology training provider. AMT’s training facility utilizes real industrial components to reinforce instructor-lead training on electrical control technology.

This first level electrical training course is designed for maintenance technicians that have responsibility for all aspects of machine and process operation. Many lab exercises using electrical devices are integrated into this training course. Students learn the electrical symbols for all electrical control components and they develop their ability to read and interpret ladder logic electrical schematics. This course provides a high level of electrical understanding in a short period of time.

PLCs for Industrial Maintenance Technicians (PLCs)

The use of PLC's in manufacturing facilities is virtually universal. And, learning to access the PLC program for the purpose of reading and interpreting PLC programs is not hard to do with proper training. You don't need to be an electrician either! Learn about input conditioning, analog inputs and outputs that show numerical data like pressure, temperature, level, vacuum, distance and speed. Learn where the numerical data is hidden and how to interpret it. Learn about the use of on delay, off delay and on/off delay functions for proper line and conveyor control. Learn to use counters, LIFO and FIFO stack control. Learn to interpret various math functions and how to 'scale' numerical data. Learn to use logical comparisons with numerical data. (PDF)
