RSLogix Standard

The class is an introduction to Programmable Controls using the Allen Bradley SLC platform from a Maintenance Troubleshooters perspective.

The SLC platform, being somewhat more simple than the more advanced platforms allows students to concentrate on the basic bit or Boolean instructions and then progresses through word manipulation instructions like Timers, Counters, Moves, Compares and simple math functions. While some simple programming is used to get students familiar with Scan principles of the processor, the emphasis is on reading and understanding what is happening in a program that is already controlling devices and using the program as a troubleshooting tool.

Tools used by Maintenance Troubleshooting Personnel are introduced including the Cross Reference tool for Navigation through existing programs and the Trending tool for monitoring the status of I/O and data within the program. The class is an excellent introduction to the more advanced platform – ControlLogix.
