This course prepares students to successfully design and configure an efficient DeviceNet network using components for the ControlLogix® platform. To meet this objective, students begin by designing a cable system, and then configure a driver, a 1756-DNB scanner module for ControlLogix, and network devices.
This course also prepares students to troubleshoot a malfunctioning DeviceNet network and return it to normal operation with minimum downtime. Students will first verify proper network installation and then perform both hardware and software-based tasks used to isolate DeviceNet problems. Students will also practice the tasks necessary to add and replace network devices.
The specific hardware components used in the course include DeviceNet round and flat cable, taps, connectors, power supplies, scanner modules, and DeviceNet-compatible devices such as photoelectric sensors, operator interfaces, packaged I/O, and drives. The software components include RSNetWorx™ for DeviceNet, RSLinx®, and RSLogix 5000® software (for ControlLogix systems). Note: The focus of this course is a DeviceNet network in a ControlLogix system. Please ask for a quote if you need training for DeviceNet and SLC™ systems.
