Learning System: T5552-FF1A

Amatrol’s Foundation Fieldbus Process Control 1 Learning System – AB L16 (T5552-FF1A) adds to the T5552FA Level and Flow Process Control Troubleshooting Learning System and the 990-PAB53A Portable PLC Learning System - Allen-Bradley CompactLogix to teach a popular industrial method for calibrating and troubleshooting valves and transmitters connected to a network.

Foundation Fieldbus is an all-digital, multi-drop communication system used for basic and advanced flow control, temperature control, and tank level control utilized primarily in places like oil refineries, chemical plants, and paper mills. Specifically, this learning system covers key Foundation Fieldbus process control topics, including an overview of industrial network communication technology, H1 wiring and connections, device configuration, and field device calibration and operation.

Learning Topics

  • Operation of Foundation Fieldbus
  • Communication Protocols Used in Foundation Fieldbus
  • H1 Foundation Fieldbus Wiring and Connections
  • Configuration of a Foundation Fieldbus Field Device
  • Field Device Calibration and Operation

Real-World Training in Foundation Fieldbus Network Communications

The Foundation Fieldbus Process Control 1 Learning System teaches relevant hands-on skills, such as: identifying the components of a Foundation Fieldbus segment; configuring a Foundation Fieldbus linking device to control communication on an H1 segment; calibrating a Foundation Fieldbus field device; and monitoring the operation of a Foundation Fieldbus field device.

Industrial-Grade Components for Hands-On Learning

The T5552-FF1A includes a variety of real-world industrial components like a differential pressure transmitter, EtherNet to Foundation Fieldbus linking device, Foundation Fieldbus H1 cable, 24 VDC power supply, and Intelligent FF interface unit. These real-world components found in process control and power plant environments can be used by learners to practice actual skills that they’ll use in the field.

In-Depth eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's Foundation Fieldbus Process Control 1 training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific Foundation Fieldbus topics covered include: how components are connected to a Foundation Fieldbus segment, the cabling requirements for segments, the function of user layer blocks and objects, how a device is configured to perform process control functions, and Foundation Fieldbus diagnostic and maintenance capability.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
