OSUIT Workforce & Economic Development offers engineering training designed as non-credit, certificate, or short-term intensive courses of study. These areas of training include Electrical/Electronics and Civil Engineering.
This is the first course in programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and applications series of three courses. The course will enable participants to read schematics involving contactors, control relays, timing relays and create ladder logic diagrams, run and test them for automation applications. Participants will be introduced to input and output modules, power supplies, selection and installation of controllers, and interfacing controllers with equipment and HMIs. Upon successful completion, participants should be able to install PLCs, create simple programs for automation requirements, interface sensors and actuators to implement a basic control system.
the participants experience in using programmable controllers to solve machine related problems in the manufacturing and process industries. The course covers concepts related to comprehensive study of tag-based PLCs featuring Rockwell Compact Logix controllers. Participants will calibrate and interface pressure, temperature, level, flow etc.., to the PLC and write programs to implement motor control based on the signals obtained. Participants will also be introduced to the concepts of serial communication concepts using MODBUS. Upon successful completion, participants should be able to install PLCs, create programs for automation requirements, interface sensors and actuators (via 4-20 mA loops and MODBUS) to implement control systems.
