SCADA and PLC systems Workshop (Certificate)

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

This control systems technology course is designed to benefit you with practical up-to-date information on the application of PLC systems to the automation and process control industries. It is suitable for people who have little or no exposure to PLCs (programmable control systems), but expect to become involved in some or all aspects of PLC installation. It aims to give practical advice from experts in the field, to assist you to correctly plan, program and install a PLC with a shorter learning curve and more confidence.

SCADA has traditionally meant a window into the process of a plant and / or a method of gathering of data from devices in the field. Today, the focus is on integrating this process data into the actual business, and using it in real time. In addition to this, today&,#146,s emphasis is on using Open Standards, such as communication protocols (eg IEC 60870, DNP3 and TCP/IP) and &,#146,off-the-shelf&,#146, hardware and softwa...

Allen Bradley PLC

Course Format: On-Site/In-House/Private Tutoring  V

Business Industrial Network provides on site, customized Program Logic Controller (PLC training), for your maintenance and engineering staff. This is yet another way we are responding to our customers needs. Our survey of over 300 companies and corporations reveals two well known facts.

1. The most unplanned downtime occurs during the off shifts.

2. Most companies only have PLC capable technicians available during the day shift.

Our studies on the true cost of production downtime prove that plc training of off shift employees yields a great return on your investment (ROI). We have also found those who have had plc training previously, greatly benefit from our customized training. Maintenance technicians give two good reasons for receiving additional training from Business Industrial Network.
