Welcome to Programmable Controller III
Course Description: This is an advanced PLC courses based on the Allen Bradley ControlLogix platform. The course consists of 3 sections: Ethernet communications and networking, DeviceNet networking, and Wonderware InTouch HMI development and communications. Students will use the Rockwell Automation Studio 5000 programming software, with RSLinx Gateway, to communicate with primarily ControlLogix L71 type processors. RSNetWorx for DeviceNet will also be used to configure a DeviceNet network. Students will focus on learning these advanced technologies, as well as how to troubleshoot these networks and systems when communication fails. Students will also have access to their own Virtual Machine that will have all of the software available 24/7, that they can create and modify their projects from home. This will also include the Emulate 5000 software, which will allow students to run their programs in a processor outside of the on-campus PLC lab.
