Course description

This workshop provides engineers and technicians with the basic theoretical and practical understanding of PLC and SCADA systems. It traces the evolution of the PLC as an intelligent 'black box' replacement for the relay panel and how, with the advent of modern communications architectures, it may be combined with Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems to allow stand-alone control systems to be configured. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn through active participation using exercises, questionnaires, and practical PC-based simulation (LogixPro), covering: basic ladder logic programming; hardware diagnostics; and implementation of various communication strategies. Participants will also examine the basic requirements of a safety PLC and the various voting system architectures required to meet different Safety Integrity Levels (SILs).

Suitability - Who should attend?

This workshop is specifically tailored for any personnel who are responsible for designing, selecting, sizing, specifying, installing, testing, operating, and maintaining programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and supervisory (SCADA) systems. This could include facilities, process, chemical, electrical, instrumentation, maintenance, and mechanical engineers and technicians.
