PLC Fault Finding

Finding and Fixing Faults with Machines and Processes

Being able to fault find on automated systems is a very powerful tool/skill when determining problems with automated technology, also it is especially useful to help determine problems with electrical or mechanical components within automated cells and can significantly reduce downtime. This course is ideal for anyone involved with Fault Finding and Fixing problems on machines.

  • Setting up communications with PLCs via a network
  • Backing up the PLC & other associated hardware before commencing Fault Finding
  • Carrying out input and outputs checks
  • Learning to understand PLC Programs and how they are structured
  • How Function Blocks works
  • Read More

Beginner PLC Programming

Being able to produce the Code to Control Machines

Being able to PLC program is an important ability when carrying out PLC Fault Finding or modifying existing programs to cater for a new machine requirements. When developing new PLC control systems in many cases it is better for your own staff to learn how to program rather than use a third party programmer who doesn't understand the process or machinery.

  • Writing programs using Ladder Logic
  • Creating simple programs for machine control
  • Using timers and counters in PLC programs
  • Creating function blocks
  • Creating programs using different data types
