IA-TRN-OES110: Basic PLC Programming -- Programmable Logic Controllers (English)

This is a 3 day course that combines the Fundamentals of Omron PLCs & Getting Started with Omron PLCs. The first day provides an introduction to the Omron family of PLC|s. Basic Terminology, memory structures, and PLC operation is defined. I/O addressing is discussed as well as numbering systems including binary, BCD, hexadecimal, and decimal. Computers will be provided to ensure hands on experience interacting with the PLC programming software and to create a PLC I/O table. The second and third day course provides basic programming skills for Omron PLC|s. The course will cover wiring to and from the PLC, memory area definitions and mapping. I/O allocations, control strategies and an introduction to programming. Computers will be provided to ensure hands on experience for PLC programming, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
