PLC TechnologyPLCs are the main heart of the automation system. PLC is the controller used to control the plant/process/system/machine.This program starts from basics of definitions to development of projects, while implementing the same on our award winning TTIM platforms.The course is focused on learning of PLC technology right from basic fundaments of PLC to complex programming concepts.
PLC Learning is designed with a 90% practical: 10 % theory ratio, hence making it understanding easy and better.
The participants get a complete understanding on:
- The basic concepts of a PLC and its block diagram
- Interfacing of the actuators and sensors with the PLC
- PLC scan - how a PLC actually executes a logic
- Different PLC architectures (standalone, DCS, PLC to PLC/ 3rd party device communication, Redundant systems, etc..)
- Networking (RS232, RS485/422, Ethernet, etc) of PLCs and Protocols (DF1, Controlnet, Devicenet, Profibus, Profinet, CAN, etc...)
- IEC 61131 programing languages for PLC - Ladder, STL, IL, SFC and FBDs
The participants learn new instructions(Latching, Timers, Counters, Mathematical, Compare, Scaling, etc.) as they develop and implement these instructions in programs.
Emphasis is given on communications and downloading of the program to the actual PLC thus increasing the hands-on experience of troubleshooting with the PLC.
SCADA is extensively used in the Process industry for remote monitoring and control of the plant/ system which is geographically wide spread.SCADA learning is designed with an industry based project approach, which helps understand and learn the features of SCADA easily.
- Static screen development: depicting the complete plant in different screens
- Dynamic linking: Communications with the PLC and animation of SCADA objects according to the status on the field.
- Trending: viewing the X-Y plots of different parameters for analysis
- Configuring Alarms, recipes and report generation.
- Securities: Defining authentications/access controls to individuals on plant floor.
HMI (Human Machine Interface) :
HMI is a device that acts as an interface between the PLC and the operator. The participants learn the configuration and programing of HMI using a project based approach.
Static screen development, Dynamic linking, Trending, Alarm setup and securities. Complete attention is given from project development to downloading the project to the HMI and communications between PLC and HMI.
