Who should take this course:

Anyone who already has some PLC experience and would like to learn how to setup and program the Allen-Bradley line of Micro800 Nano Programmable Controllers.


Requirements to complete optional exercises or follow along:

Students who wish to complete optional exercises, or follow along with the instructor as he programs, will need the following:

  • An internet connection to download the free CCW programming software from Rockwell's website
  • Any Micro800 Controller and compatible programming cable (most use USB or Ethernet)
  • Note: The Micro810 requires an optional USB adapter to be programed with CCW
  • A Windows PC compatible with the above software (see below) and controller (USB and/or Ethernet port)
  • Any Input (push buttons, switches, etc) or Output (pilot lights, relays, etc) devices the student would like to use with their Micro800
  • NOTE: While the course covers how to find I/O wiring diagrams, it does not include lessons on basic electricity or wiring I/O devices

Note: Currently, Rockwell states their free CCW programming software supports these Windows versions:

  • Windows 7 Pro (untested on Home edition)

BE

A very professional course by an experienced instructor. The overhead view and set-up of the demo hardware, and computer screen view for the programming examples were great quality and first rate. Having the instructor appear on screen creates an environment similar to being in a classroom
