The ControlLogix® series of programmable logic controllers are the PLCs of the future. Even the smallest controller has advanced capabilities above existing PLCs, including exceptional power and motion control. This interactive online course will introduce you to the ControlLogix® program editor. The course provides an understanding of the program logic, Input and Output instructions, series and parallel instructions, ladder logic and tags. This course is designed to familiarize you with the functions, architecture, and software in use in the ControlLogix® PLC platform, providing you with basic skills that enable you to comfortably interact with the programming software and communicate with the PLC processor. 
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the functions of the program editor and discuss program logic 
  • Recognize how the program’s logic follows a unique structure for evaluation 
  • Describe the structure of rungs and the output instructions 
  • Discuss series, parallel and Input/Output instructions 
  • Describe the ladder logic in programming
  • Describe tags and their functions in the program 
  • Identify the types of tags and describe how to create a new controller tag 
  • Explain how to monitor and edit tags through the editor

Terrible - crashed IE three times, then does not give me credit for subjects I've visited even after I review them, and after it says "would you like to return to your previous place

Terrible - crashed IE three times, then does not give me credit for subjects I've visited even after I review them, and after it says "would you like to return to your previous place." Taking programming advice from a platform that isn't programmed correctly. Wow.
