RSLogix 5000 Level 2: ControlLogix Maintenance and Troubleshooting

This four-day course provides students with the necessary resources and hands-on practice to efficiently troubleshoot a previously operational ControlLogix or other Logix5000 system (e.g., CompactLogix, FlexLogix, Drive-Logix, and SoftLogix). It builds upon students’ fundamental knowledge of common controller terms and operation, ability to identify and create fundamental RSLogix 5000 project components, and experience interpreting basic ladder logic. This course adds to students’ skill sets by introducing new tasks, such as connecting to a network, interpreting project execution, and editing ladder logic online. After practicing such skills, students will be presented with a systematic strategy for diagnosing and troubleshooting a variety of system errors, such as controller, I/O, and other hardware problems; noise-related problems; and software configuration problems. 

After completing this course, students will be able to perform the following tasks:   

  • Monitor and edit tags
  • Edit ladder logic and function block diagrams
  • Apply preventative maintenance and troubleshooting strategies
  • Troubleshoot controller problems
  • Force I/O and toggle bits
  • Troubleshoot digital, analog, and remote I/O
  • Troubleshoot power supply and noise-related problems
