Course Description

Course Code : CTRL3020

Based around the GX Works2 software in “simple mode” with labels, the course will run through the advanced features of the Q, L, & FX PLCs. Concentrating on the applied instruction set, delegates will be able to use mathematical functions, interfacing with analogue units, use complex instructions and many more functions. Students are given many practical exercises to solve.

Ideally delegates need previous experience with Mitsubishi PLCs (or to have attended the PLC Introduction training course) however an understanding of other manufacturers’ PLC products will help. An understanding of basic electrical principles and number bases is required.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course students are expected to be competent PLC programmers with an understanding of complex PLC programming.
