About

This Fundamentals of Instrumentation, Process Control, PLCs and SCADA for Plant Operators and Other Non-Instrument Personnel  at IDC Technologies contains the elaborated concepts on three engineering fields namely instrumentation engineering, automation engineering and process engineering. 

Overview

This Fundamentals of Instrumentation, Process Control, PLCs and SCADA for Plant Operators and Other Non-Instrument Personnel  at IDC Technologies includes:

Instrumentation, Automation and Process Control

This professional course on Instrumentation, automation and process contains automation engineering and process engineering. Instrumentation refers to the devices and instruments that are used in various processes. Automation refers to the automatic working of instruments. Process engineering refers to the study of processes that are carried out in any type of industry and industrial applications.

The fundamentals and selection criteria of measuring devices like pressure transducers, level transducers, temperature transducers and flow measurements are detailed. The Piping & instrument diagram and symbols for the instrumentation devices are listed and selection criteria are discussed. The process automation control and their types are incorporated with the process systems. The new technology oriented smart instruments and their data signals are further discussed.

Scada Systems for Industry

SCADA has traditionally meant a window into the process of a plant or gathering of data from devices in the field, but now the focus is on integrating this process data into the actual business and using it in real time. The emphasis today is on using open standards such as communication protocols (e.g. OPC, MODBUS, and TCP/IP) and ‘off-the-shelf’ hardware, such as industrial Ethernet to keep the costs down. This course covers the essentials of SCADA systems.

The first few topics give an introduction to SCADA systems then focuses on the SCADA system hardware and software, including alarm management and Human Management Interface (HMI) issues. This is followed by a review of the RS-232/RS-485 interface standards and the MODBUS and DNP3 protocols.

The remainder of the topics give a review of industrial Ethernet, TCP/IP and MODBUS/TCP. The role of Open Process Control (OPC) in plant SCADA systems is also discussed. This is followed by discussion of network security, SCADA historians and troubleshooting issues.

Although the emphasis will be on practical industry topics highlighting recent developments using case studies and the latest application of SCADA technologies the fundamentals of SCADA systems will be covered. The course is aimed at those who want to be updated on the latest developments in SCADA systems and want to get a solid appreciation of the fundamentals of SCADA design, installation and troubleshooting.

Programmable Logic Controllers for Automation and Process Control

This course is designed to benefit you with practical up-to-date information on the application of PLCs for the automation and process control of plants and factories. It is suitable for people who have little or no exposure to PLCs, but expect to become involved in some or all aspects of PLC installation.

 It aims to give practical advice from experts in the field, to assist you to correctly plan, program and install a PLC with a shorter learning curve and more confidence. The inventible question is which PLC is being used.This online course will be focusing on the generic PLC and use the open programming IEC 61131-3 standard. The information contained in this course advances from the basics to challenge even the most experienced engineer in the industry today
