Course: TECH500 Advanced CODESYS® and TwinCAT® Programming
This course teaches the fundamentals of programming and diagnostics of the CODESYS and TwinCAT software for open PLC architecture including the HOMAG Group naming and organization system. CODESYS software assists in customizing industrial automation projects to help increase efficiency and quality in production processes. The IEC 61131 programming tool at the heart of CODESYS offers unique PLC programming independent from hardware and portable to other PLC systems. Starting with the programmable logic controller (PLC), and circuit diagrams, this course helps production personnel structure ladder & function block diagrams as well as sequential & continuous function charts. Instruction also addresses the use of Boolean expressions and establishing triggers, timers, counters and, tracing variables in your system over a given time frame. Further instruction defines the various data types: enumerations, array, and structured then the creation of variables which can be associated with Visualizations for easy identification. Students learn to produce Conditional Program instruction lists and through many practical exercises, how to use the Base Control System in Power Control to read and write to hardware including physical address assignments, setting timed interrupt priorities, layered system structure of machine units, and troubleshooting errors through CODESYS and woodScout.
