GE Proficy Logic Developer Machine Edition Training - 2 day training
The Proficy Logic Developer Machine Edition course familiarizes students with the control logic development tool suite used to program the entire family of GE Intelligent Platforms industrial control hardware. Emphasis is given to understanding and operating in the development environment, understanding the available logic development options, generating programs using the ladder logic language and communicating with control targets (90/30, 90/70, VersaMax, RX7i and RX3i controllers).
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course provides the opportunity for individuals who are or who will be involved in programming, operating and troubleshooting control systems using Proficy Logic Developer PLC. The course is designed for electrical technicians, electricians, and programmers beginning to work with Proficy Logic Developer PLC or those tasked with developing, modifying and maintaining controller programs.
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Describe Basic Systems & Components (Series 90-30 or 90-70 or VersaMax, RX7i or RX3i)
- Discuss the Proficy Machine Edition environment
- Discuss the menu options, toolchest, windowed tools, & application settings
- Create a project and configure the Rx3i
- Establish and utilize communications to the controller
- Develop a small sequence application • Create variables, assign reference addresses
- Create and debug relay ladder logic program
- Create a view target and link the variable to the ladder logic
- Work with objects and object based programs
- Develop and implement objects in Proficy Machine Edition
- Work with ladder logic, structured text, function block programming
- Work with user defined function blocks
COURSE AGENDA MORNING - DAY 1
Control System Architecture and Operational Fundamentals: Introduction to basic components of Controllers and what roles Controllers play in automation. Controller operating concepts – scan, logic solution and communication.
PLC Controller Operation and Components: Orientation to the Machine Edition Programming environment and purposeof the tools. Define a project and what it contains and create a project and openexisting projects.
Creating a Project: Create a new project. Add project and target documentation.Navigate through the project.
Controller Communications: Establish communication to a PLC over Ethernet connections.Validate and download ladder program. Upload a program. Verify PLCequality; flash memory; monitor/change references; force boolean variables; usethe controller diagnostic capabilities; view controller status information.
