PanelView Plus Training System | Hands-On Allen-Bradley HMI Skills

Learning System: 89-PVAB5500

The PanelView Plus Learning System – AB ControlLogix (89-PVAB5500) adds to the Programmable Controller Troubleshooting Workstation (890-PECB) and the PLC Troubleshooting Learning System-AB ControlLogix (890-AB5500) to teach how to program and operate a PanelView Plus 6 1000 HMI operator interface terminal. Human-Machine Interface (HMI) operator stations have become commonplace in modern industry, because they eliminate wiring, enable operator functions to be modified in software, and provide the ability for the operator to monitor PLC operations data. In addition to the 890-PECB and 890-AB5500, this system requires a PLC EtherNet Learning System – ControlLogix (89-EN-AB5500) and FactoryTalk View ME Programming Software.

The HMI training system includes the PanelView Plus 6 1000 with touch screen, Ethernet cable, and mounting console. This training system will be used to cover major topic areas like application editing, tags and communications, input and output objects, local messages and alarms, diagnostics, and information messages. This system combines industry-standard components for real-world learning and durability and combines it with in-depth curriculum, so that learners can practice hands-on skills while gaining the knowledge necessary to understand the reasons behind the skills that they’re practicing.

Learning Topics

  • PanelView Plus Construction & Configuration
  • PanelView Plus Application Transfer
  • Tags & Communication
  • RSView ME Studio Software Operation
  • Application Displays
  • Input & Output Objects
  • Numeric Input/Output Editing
  • Editing RSView ME Studio Displays
  • Local Messages
  • Alarms, Diagnostics & Information Messages

Real-World Components Allow You to Configure HMI Applications

The HMI training system is designed for ControlLogix processors and includes a PanelView Plus frame assembly, PanelView Plus 6 1000 touch screen terminal, and a 5-ft. Ethernet cable. PanelView Plus 6 1000 terminals are used for a wide variety of machine control and monitoring applications. Learners will practice some of these applications via hands-on skills, such as transferring a Studio-ME application to a PanelView Plus 6 terminal, configuring diagnostic messages for a PanelView Plus 6 application, and creating and configuring the following: a display list selector object; push button object; numeric input object; and local message display object.
