Basic SLC-500

This course introduces participants to the fundamental aspects of a SLC500 system. It begins with a system overview and migrates to an introduction to RSLogix500 software, the programming environment for the processor. Participants will receive a basic understanding of a SLC500 project, including an introductory look at routines, data table files, and addressing. An overview of RSLinx software and configuring communication drivers to allow the computer to communicate to the various processors will also be covered.

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

  • Understand the fundamental aspects of a SLC-500 system
  • Understand the RSLogix500 software and its environment
  • Establish communication between SLC-500 and RSlogix using RSLinx
  • Understand the basics of Ladder logic
  • Use timer, counters and comparison instructions
  • Maintain and troubleshoot using RSLogix500 software
