Basic ControlLogix

This course takes a fundamental approach to a ControlLogix system. It begins with an overview of the architecture and migrates into an introduction of RSLogix 5000, the programming environment. Participants will learn how to setup communications to the PLC using RSLinx, download and upload projects, as well as determine the modes of the CPU.

Upon completion of the course, participant shall be able to:

  • Understand the Control Logix System environment
