Motion Control Fundamentals using Kinetix 5700 (CIP) Servo Drives

Course Number - CCN132

Course Number - CCN132

Course Purpose

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to demonstrate fundamental motion control concepts common to all Rockwell Automation motion control systems. This course is designed to provide you with an understanding of the concepts, terminology, functionality, and applications of motion control. This course will also allow you to establish the foundation you need before learning the skills necessary to maintain and program motion control systems. This course does not address motion control system design or specific motion control software programming. If you are seeking training in these areas, you should enroll in the relevant Rockwell Automation training courses, making sure you have fulfilled the prerequisites for those courses before enrollment.


Who Should Attend

Individuals who need to learn basic motion control concepts for their job or as a prerequisite for attending other motion control courses should attend this course.



To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:

  • A background in basic electricity, electronics, and computer concepts
  • Completion of the Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 1: ControlLogix Fundamentals and Troubleshooting and Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 1: CompactLogix Fundamentals and Troubleshooting

Technology Requirements

All technology is provided for student use in the classroom by Rockwell Automation. It is not necessary for students to bring any technology with them when attending this course.


Student Materials

To enhance and facilitate your learning experience, the following materials are provided to each student as part of the course package:

  • Student Manual - Includes the key concepts, definitions, examples, and activities presented in this course
  • Lab Book - Provides learning activities and hands-on practice. Solutions are included after each exercise for immediate feedback.
  • Studio 5000 Logix Designer and Logix 5000 Motion Control Procedures Guide - Provides the steps required to complete common motion-related tasks within a Studio 5000 Logix Designer project and basic project organization tasks.

Hands-On Practice

Throughout this course, you will be able to practice the skills you have learned through various hands-on exercises. Exercises focus on the skills introduced in each lesson and are performed on an EtherNet/IP workstation. You will use a Kinetix® 5700 workstation (Catalog Number ABT-TDK5700) containing real and simulated devices to practice the tasks involved in working with a motion control application.


Next Learning Level

Once you have gained the skills covered in this course, you may want to expand your skills by attending training such as Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 4: Kinetix 5700 (CIP) Programming or Kinetix 5700 Troubleshooting and Project Interpretation.
