Description

On completion of this module the student will demonstrate competence in the programming of industry standard PLC's such Siemens S7 or Allen Bradley SLC5. The student will demonstrate an ability to document, program and commission solutions to practical automation problems using a number of programming techniques.

The student will also be introduced to SCADA software packages and the techniques employed in their configuration and deployment. 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Apply sequential function chart (aka Grafcet or state-transition) methods to control sequential processes including selective and parallel branching techniques.

2.

Comprehend the hardware configuration of a typical Industry standard PLC

3.

Comprehend the specific addressing configuration of an industry standard PLC and apply same to  practical automation problems.

4.

Develop a knowledge of number systems and data handling within a typical PLC system.

5.

Broaden knowledge of   simple programming instructions to include the use of applied instructions and register use.

6.

Aquire the necessary skills to produce visual models of real process events.

7.

Demonstrate the ability to create tag namea and initiate a project utilising SCADA software.

8.

Demonstrate a proficiency in the design and development of a HMI

9.

Broaden knowledge of the theory behind and the techniques employed in program design.

10.

Use visual programming techniques (i.e. Labview) to interface with industrial hardware.
