Troubleshooting Programmable Logic Controllers and Installations
Troubleshooting is the systematic and logical procedure used to determine the cause of an electrical problem by eliminating things that cannot be the cause of the trouble.
In order to meet that objective, it is essential to understand how electrical equipment and circuits perform when operating correctly, and symptoms associated with failures. Knowledge related to the construction and operation of the electrical equipment is a component to the definition of a qualified person used in electrical and safety standards.
This course will incorporate the best practices of troubleshooting specific to AllenBradley CompactLogix, ControlLogix and SLC-500 PLC hardware and associated input/output circuitry. Students will use Rockwell Automation RSLinx, Studio 5000, RSLogix 5000 and RSLogix 500 programming software to edit, document, download, upload, go online with, save, and operate control programs.
The course will also include a review of electrical circuit construction as depicted with schematic and wiring diagrams, as wells as process diagrams.
Students are expected to use the knowledge gained relating to the operation of PLC hardware including I/O modules, program instructions, data organization, and communication with a programming PC as an asset to maintaining and troubleshooting their employer’s equipment.

The primary concern is with the safety of students and employees. This includes traveling conditions, safety of students and employees taking public transportation, and the colleges’ capacity to ensure parking lots and sidewalks are safe to navigate. Secondary concerns include anticipated disruptions to student learning and to planned campus events.
