    Course Content
    To fault find a system you need to know EXACTLY how it works
     
    HOW EXACTLY DOES A PLC WORK?
    • Am I getting the input to the PLC?
    • The Led on the output card means i am getting voltage out right? does it?
    • What exactly happens in between? ,theres more than just a program in the CPU
    • How exactly does it scan the program?
    • What is this Watchdog Timer? Is it that important?
    • Can I use the same output twice? That's bad programming isn't it?
    • A PLC is a logic controller, so use a logical approach to fault find it.
    • What are the 8 simple test points to check?
    • The PLC is in RUN, that means theres a program right? does it?
    • FORCING a bit and toggling a bit is pretty much the same yeah? depends on which PLC
    Then you need to Know the specifics
     
    HOW DO I DO THE FOLLOWING?

    (some straight forward some not so)

    • Check power is ON and PLC is in right mode (RUN or Program)
    • Check LEDs for fault definition
    • Check and Change Modules if required (with spares and without spares)
    • System connection
    • Establish link to PLC (RSLinx, a major problem area these days)
    • Create a blank project and take a backup (just in case I mess up)
    • Open the correct project Off Line and link to PLC
    • Interrogate errors in Status table
    • Identify if it is a hardware or software fault?
    • Identify if it is a PLC or Comms fault
    • Change the battery
    • Check all settings against a template, Node Address etc.
    • Check Hardware Configuration
    • Clear Memory and Download program
    • Check software against latest copy (Compare function)
    • Monitor program
    • Searching for specific operands and instructions
    • Changing timer, counter values On Line
    • Making minor mods Off Line and On line
    • Check or create a Custom Monitor table to establish parameter status
    • Create a Histogram to monitor address transitions
    • Creat a Trend to trend address status or values
    • Altering timer, counter and other data table values if required
    • Force a parameter if required
    • Toggling addresses to move program on in sequence
    • Call up documentation to assist with software diagnostics
    • Printing Cross Reference / Program Listings etc.

    Background information also covered
