Course Number - CCP151

Course Number - CCP151

Course Purpose

This skill-building course provides you with the resources and hands-on practice required to program basic ladder logic instructions for any Logix5000 controller. You will have an opportunity to use the Logix Designer application to perform basic software tasks to meet the requirements of a given functional specification. In addition, you will set up a sequencer to run equipment through a predefined procedure and separate production procedure from equipment control.


Who Should Attend

Programmers with little or no working experience with controllers are responsible for programming Logix5000 controllers using the Logix Designer application. Those who need to learn how to draft ladder logic for any application should attend this course.
