• Distributed Control System ELCL 9074


    Our Distributed Control System course teaches a unified approach to developing and troubleshooting Allen-Bradley based factory integration using FactoryTalk and ViewAnyWare software. Learn how to implement a distributed human-machine interface (HMI) system and set up the database collection. The course also uses a Rockwell-based distributed control system (DCS) to focus on the set-up of DCS applications using an asset management server. Learn to set up and interpret a Rockwell Software Maintenance Automation Control Center (RSMACC) database, set up the plant performance and metrics system and optimize simulated plant activity using Arena simulation software.


    Course Delivery Method:

    This course uses a blended learning approach that incorporates both in-class and online instruction. Approximately half of the course (32 hours) is held in class with a teacher. The remaining hours involve self-directed work.
