Allen Bradley GuardLogix
The GuardLogix class is a beginning course on Allen Bradley GuardLogix
PLC hardware. The course will use ethernet as the communication
network to connect the GuardLogix I/O block back to the GuardLogix
PLC. The class lessons will compare and contrast standard ControlLogix
PLCs and GuardLogix PLCs as to project structure, confi gurations and
tags. Basic layout and system set-up of GuardLogix processors will be
covered. Set-up and confi guration of GuardLogix I/O blocks will be
included. Troubleshooting of network, I/O connections, and processor
configurations through the diagnostic LEDs are also incorporated in the
class. This is a 16-hour course.
Hardware used: 1756-ENBT – Ethernet Module
1756-L61S – GuardLogix PLC
1756-LSP – Safety Partner Processor
1791ES-IB8XOBV4 – Guard I/O EtherNet/IP
Siemens S7 PLC Level I
This is an introductory course for the S7 product and family of PLC
controllers. Hardware identification and configuration with software
configuration topics are included. Program structure and instruction
sets with hands on demonstration equipment is covered. Students
will use digital, analog and timing function labs to reinforce plant floor
applications. Students will be required to enter logic, test and debug
ladder logic. This is a 24-hour course.
Siemens Profibus DP Network
This course will help the student with installation and maintenance
aspects of the Siemens profibus DP network. Hands on troubleshooting
using hardware, software and configuration tools will be utilized. Proper
installation of connectors, cabling and testing topics will be covered. This
is a 16-hour course.
Industrial Fluid Power
Fluid power is an efficient way to move energy without mechanical belts,
chains, or levers. The physics of fluids, components, troubleshooting
and design applications for hydraulic & pneumatic systems are covered
in this class. This is an 8-hour course.
Industrial Fluid Power II
In this class,the student will use electro-pneumatic valves,programmable
logic controllers (PLCs), in/out boxes, and various types of electrical
switching devices. The students will build, design, and troubleshoot
machines using - pneumatics, hydraulics, and electronics. Industrial
fluid power is a prerequisite for this course. This is an 8-hour course.
An Introduction to robotics is a study of basic robotic systems
and operations. The objective is to introduce robotic systems and
programming reinforced with “hands-on” training on a robot, teach
pendant and controller. Different types of robot systems and their
components will be explained. The robot and the controller will be broken
down into parts such as power supply, servo motors and amplifiers,
feedback systems, and inputs and outputs, and it’s function. System
back-up, robot mastering, coordinate systems, tool center point, register
data, and program editing will be explained and used in lab exercises.
The FANUC robot and controller system will be used in the labs with
reference to other robotic systems as well. This is a 16-hour course.
Maintenance Network Services
CTS offers a knowledgeable team trained in manufacturing
and IT networks. We can provide network assessments,
design and planning. Maintenance networks provide your
technicians with quick access to PLC and other automation
equipment to increase output and reduce downtime.
Technical Product Inventory
Let CTS inventory your installed automation controls and
mechanical equipment to develop an accurate training plan
that targets technical training where it is most needed. A CTS
professional will inventory your plant floor equipment and
return with a detailed report of the installed equipment and a
detailed training plan for that equipment.
