The training course aims to enable technical personnel to understand the PLC system better, make basic modifications to the user control program and to troubleshoot quickly using both software and machine diagrams. Problem exercises are intensively given and are simulated with the aid of a PLC trainer. Aside the generic understanding of the PLC system, participants have the opportunity of product specific knowledge through intensive hands-on practice using Omron PLC hardware and software/simulators.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the operational principle of a PLC.
