OPC for SCADA and DCS training

What does OPC stand for? OPC = OLE for Process Control

What does OLE stand for? OLE=Object Linking and Embedding

opc-training

OPC communication protocol is the most current to standardize data transfer between all industrial devices. Which make OPC training essential to those working with IIoT.

(IIoT=Industrial Internet of Things)

For OPC SCADA and DCS, this OPC training and software gives you real world experience on free OPC server.

RSLogix 5000 Programming

A ControlLogix – RSLogix 5000 Tutorial

Check out the RSLogix 5000 Tutorial to get started with understanding the structure (architecture) PAC RSLogix 5000 programming.

studio-5000-tutorial

A ControlLogix project is comprised of tasks that contain programs routines and other elements. Tasks within the project set the execution priority for one or more programs and schedule the program’s execution with up to 32 tasks available.

The programming task are configured to execute

Continuous: The continuous task is executed continuously as long as periodic or event tasks are not being executed. When the continuous task completes a full scan, it restarts immediately.
Periodic: Periodic tasks perform a function at a specified interval. Configurable time periods range from point 1 milliseconds to 2,000 seconds. Priorities assigned, range from 1 to 15.
or Event-based:Event task are executed immediately when a specific trigger occurs. A trigger is defined by the user and can be a change of state of an input or specific motion control operations.

In summary tasks are executed one at a time depending on their priority and only one task is continuous.Learn more see RSLogix 5000 Tutorial

Learning PLC Network to PC Communication to HMI SCADA Smartphone

Below is a link to a great whitepaper about the learning path for PLC network Communication to PC (HMI SCADA), to the Smartphone (cloud). More accurately PLC to OPC/SQL to Smartphone App or HTML5. Includes network security advice for the stages alogn the way too. Start with PLC network and communication protocols and methods, then expand to HMI-SCADA, to SQL (and brand specific topics like RSLinx OPC server), Excel OPC client, HTML5 and your ready for Smartphone.

PLC Training | Analog input output – YouTube

Learning PLC Analog

Learning PLC analog input and output is another great example of it being greater benefit to first learn PLC Analog before moving on to PAC Analog. In the PAC, instead of using SCL instructions in the ladder logic, you scale analog inputs and outputs in the analog card setup screen itself. (The I/O configuration area of PAC software like RSLogix 5000).

Used in the video above is the Basic PLC Training Certificate Course download. You should take that course first before taking the (PAC Course) Controllogix RSLogix 5000 certificate course download.
