ATS Applied Tech Systems Pty Ltd will be holding three day courses for new Allen-Bradley SLC-500 users who want to build up a profound knowledge of the PLC and programming software.
To join these courses a basic knowledge of programming an Allen-Bradley PLC system or comparable PLC-types is desired, but not required. Knowledge in the field of SLC-500 maintenance is also advantageous. Experienced engineers and programmers can follow these courses in a shorter space of time.
The courses will provide an overview of the application functions of the Allen-Bradley SLC-500 family and the programming methods using the APS or Al Series or RSLogix 500 programming software.
Programming, documenting and on-line monitoring will be practised during the courses using the APS or Al Series or RSLogix 500 software for the PC, the so-called Ladder Logistics program. The user interface is friendly to work with so that users should not find any problems in handling the basic application programming. The package offers application functions through keys, help screens and many options to program, to document and to test an SLC-500 program.
All ATS courses are taught by highly qualified trainers, with practical knowledge, in professional ATS training centres or On-Site. Prior to the courses an intake conversation can take place to define the participant(s) and the company's requirements. Presentations (theory and examples) as well as practical exercises bring the courses to life. ATS courses are interactive, the trainer will always make sure the training contents link back to your situation.
