Prerequisite: Basic AutomationDirect PLC (ELEC-6331)
This class is an extension of the AutomationDirect DS-5 programming class. It starts with a review of the software package, basic PLC instructions and their applications. Then it will proceed to more involved subject areas, including accumulator operations, pointers, shift registers, and drum sequencer.
Prerequisite: Basic Allen-Bradley PLCs (ELEC-6078) or equivalent
This class is intended to provide the skills needed to write, enter and test ladder logic programs using advanced programming instructions such as comparison, move, program control, shift registers, data handling, sequencers, indirect addressing, interrupts and other topics.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of industrial machine controls
This class will provide general background theory, applications information and programming practice for mechanics, technicians and engineers who specify or maintain Programmable Logic Control-based systems. Automation is used in green building engineering.
Training consists of six hours (three hours lecture/three hours lab) that covers Basic PLC’s applicable to the Electrical trade. An excellent opportunity for individuals to apply theory to hands-on lab projects that reflect problems that may be encountered in one’s daily work.
This is for Electricians that are looking for six hours of non-code continuing education. This training can be used to fulfill a portion of the bi-annual recertification as prescribed by the Nebraska State Electrical Division.
This class will provide general background theory, applications information and programming practice for mechanics, technicians and engineers who specify or maintain PLC-based systems.
In this training, participants will receive an introduction to the “Logix” family of Allen-Bradley Controllers. Topics include an overview of Logix family hardware, an introduction to the RS5000 software, basic ladder logic programming, time, counter, math, compare, tags, organizing projects, uploading/downloading, online editing, and more.
This course studies the national electrical code and helps to prepare apprentices for the exam that leads to licensing.
This course has been approved for 30 code hours by the Nebraska State Electrical Board.
This class covers electrical fundamentals from a troubleshooting perspective. Participants will learn what to expect in operational series, parallel and combination circuits through measuring voltage, resistance and current flow with digital multimeters. Topics include electrical terminology, Ohm’s Law, schematic reading, components, wiring, and safe work practices.
To help the participants develop and retain skills, 50 percent of the time is hands-on lab time using custom training consoles.
Prerequisite: Electrical Fundamentals (ELEC-6075) and Motor Controls & Relay Logic (ELEC-6076) or equivalent
In this class, participants will use training equipment with industry-standard devices to improve their electrical troubleshooting skills. Course includes proven tips and techniques for experts and beginners.
This training will provide students with an overview of common industrial networking protocols. Introduction to the OSI model, TCP/IP, IP networking, switches and routing. Introduction to VLANs. Hands-on network setup and testing.
During this course, participants with industrial experience will learn the principles of basic pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits starting with using a computer layout and simulation program. After any problems with the simulated pneumatic circuits have been diagnosed and fixed, then the circuits will be constructed and operated on the trainer board using actual valves, cylinders and compressed air.
This course is designed to increase skill levels for engineers, technicians, sales representatives, and anyone involved with manufacturing, process controls, energy generation or automation. Training includes lecture, reference materials and hands-on usage of actual devices such as photo-electric, inductive, capacitive, and temperature sensors. Interface to PLCs and control techniques will be covered using simulation trainer consoles. Such sensors are keys to green building automation.
This training will provide participants with an overview of the Siemens PLC architecture and terminology with a comparison to Allen-Bradley. Basic programming of a Siemens PLC using the S7-1200 and TIA-Portal.
Three-phase motors, motor starters, wiring, relays, timers, schematic, line logic, industrial symbology, and relay logic circuits will be covered using discussion and hands-on training equipment.
Prerequisite: Basic electrical knowledge
Training consists of six hours (three hours lecture/three hours lab) that covers Motor Controls applicable to the Electrical trade. An excellent opportunity for individuals to apply theory to hands-on lab projects that reflect problems that may be encountered in one’s daily work.
Code topics include wiring, protection, equipment, special occupancies, code changes, and more. This 12-hour seminar for licensed electricians meets the Nebraska State Electrical Act’s 12 contact hours of continuing education requirement.
Prerequisite: Familiarity with machine controls and a basic understanding of programming PLCs
Students will learn how to program an Industrial HMI Touch Panel for operator interface with various brands of PLCs. Entry and display of variables, operator prompts, statistical data display, and alarm messages will be developed and tested on the trainer console with PLC and AutomationDirect C-More HMI.
VFDs are increasingly used in electric motor speed control applications. This course gives maintenance technicians, specifiers and supervisors insights to VFD theory and operation, installation considerations, problem solving in existing systems, and familiarity with typical setup parameters.
Approximately 50 percent of the course will be hands-on with learners making wiring connections and programming parameters.
Prerequisite: Basic understanding of 3-phase motors
Training covers Variable Speed Motor Controls applicable to the Electrical trade. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals to apply theory to hands-on lab projects that reflect problems that may be encountered in one’s daily work.
