PLC ControlNet Training | eBook Curriculum

eBook: E40665

The PLC ControlNet eBook curriculum adds to the PLC Troubleshooting Learning System to teach the fundamentals and troubleshooting of industrial communications networks using ControlNet, a popular ControlLogix control network. ControlNet is a high-speed deterministic network for transferring both scheduled and unscheduled messages on the same cable. The rapid exchange of data between departments within a manufacturing facility has become an integral part of the production process. Technicians must be able to understand, install and troubleshoot these networks.

Learning Topics

  • Network Operation & Installation
  • Module & Ethernet/IP Configuration
  • Remote I/O Operation & Installation
  • RSNETWorx for ControlNet
  • Remote I/O Tags

What are Three Level of Industrial Networks?

Industrial networks are high-speed connections that exchange data between production line equipment and other departments within the manufacturing facility. Networks permit basing production and inventory on sales, and heighten accountability for down time and scrap. Modern networks seamlessly transfer data from one type of network to another, using the most efficient network for the type of data being transferred. Most facilities use three classes of networks: Enterprise level, Automation and Control level, and Field Device level.
