Learn About PLCs from a Single 3-Day Seminar—Plus Receive LogixPro® PLC Simulation Software FREE!

Workshop Description/Agenda

3 day Hands-on
2.4 Continuing Education Credits

This course is a subcomponent of:
Fundamentals of Programmable Logic Controllers with PLC Automation Systems

Learn how operator interfaces (OIs, or human machine interfaces–HMIs) integrate with a PLC to access information about the machine. You will discover that the HMI is a well designed real-time troubleshooting tool when properly programmed. You’ll spend time in hands-on lab exercises programming the PLC and diagnosing problems. Leave with valuable skills for effective repairs, troubleshooting and maintenance.

This course is a three-day segment within the broader five-day course Fundamentals of Programmable Logic Controllers with PLC Automation Systems. We suggest the five-day course for the most comprehensive training.
