Course Overview:

The course aims to provide engineers and maintenance technicians with a basic understanding of a PLC operation in a process control environment.

Learners will gain knowledge in the hardware structure of a PLC and how it operates in the field using inputs and outputs. Learners will have access to a PLC simulator where exercises will require them to develop software, download, debug and fault-find. Software programming will include inputs, outputs, timers, counters etc.

Based around the GX Developer software, the course will cover the advanced features of current Mitsubishi PLC products including Mitsubishi FX and Q Series and provide the learners with advanced programming skills. Concentrating on the applied instruction set, delegates will be able to use the mathematical functions, displaying results and interfacing with analogue units and HMIs. Delegates will be given many practical exercises to solve using bespoke training equipment. Delegates will also be introduced to HMI software and communication protocols.

The course will also cover number formats, bits, bytes, words, double words, binary, HEX, octal, floating point and integer.
