This course provides you with the skills necessary to efficiently design and configure a ControlNet network. You will gain these skills from the ground up, practicing each step in the design and configure process from choosing the correct cable to configuring the connections that will transmit data from ControlLogix® (Logix5000™) controllers and other devices across that cable.
This course also provides you with the skills needed to safely and efficiently return a malfunctioning network to normal operation, including:
- Implementing a logical process for troubleshooting ControlNet and RSNetWorx™ components
- Identifying problems with communications cards, cabling, and other network hardware
- Applying best practices and network troubleshooting tools
You will practice each step in the network troubleshooting process from verifying the media system to correcting connection configuration errors.
After completing this course, you will have designed a ControlNet and RSNetWorx media system that will serve as the backbone of your networkand will have configured ControlNet and RSNetWorx-capable hardware to behave as a deterministic and repeatable control network. You will also havehands-on experience troubleshooting a ControlNet and RSNetWorx networkthat can immediately be applied to your job responsibilities.
