Allen Bradley ControlLogix/CompactLogix (Modules 1-4)
Duration: 4 days
Audience: Anyone needing to maintain or program a Logix5000 project
Prerequisites: Basic computer skills

Course Outline

Module 1

This module takes a fundamental approach to a ControlLogix system. It begins with an overview of the architecture and migrates into an introduction of RSLogix 5000, the programming environment. Students will learn how to setup communications to the PLC using RSLinx, download and upload projects, as well as determine the modes of the CPU.

Lessons

  1. System Overview
  2. RSLogix Studio 5000 Overview
  3. RSLinx
  4. Configuring Ethernet Modules
  5. CPU Modes
  6. Downloading / Uploading

Module 2

This module presents the fundamentals of memory management with a discussion of the tag database. The module continues with instruction on configuring the digital and analog I/O modules. Non Volatile Memory is discussed and then the student will learn the basics of ladder logic. The relay type instructions will be covered and how to enter and edit the in the ladder editor. A lesson on documentation concludes the module.
