PLC and HMI Training

Organisations that have recently invested in modern automated plants will find that most of their control panels will include a PLC.    It is beneficial for Technicians to have an understanding of PLC systems for the following reasons.

  • If no back up program is obtained and the PLC crashes the plant can be off line for a long period for reprogramming.

  • A first check can be made to see if a fault lies with the PLC, this can assist the fault finding process.

  • The use of the PLC laptop can greatly speed up a plant fault finding process.

  • The PLC program can be modified to make the plant to run more efficiently.
