PLC Wiring and Troubleshooting

Instructor Led, Hands-on Training

At the completion of this training, the employee will be able to “talk through” and troubleshoot the PLC’s ladder logic using the Logix5000 software in order to locate a “real” faulty input or output device, replace it, and get the process back up and running. It’s all about troubleshooting! Each participant will wire the actual input and output (I/O) field devices to the PLC. The participants actually wire their own PLC Trainer!
