ALSPA Control System : Control System - ALSPA Control System Fundamentals


There are currently no Courses Scheduled for Control System - ALSPA Control System Fundamentals.

Course Description

O-CON10402

Course Description

This course familiarizes participants with the architecture of ALSPA control system and components & supervisory functions of ALSPA HMI, which enables them to control and monitor the plant process.

This course provides an overview of the ALSPA control system hardware and CONTROCAD engineering tool.

This course will also enable the participant to do basic application programming and basic HMI modification and, do basic diagnostic of ALSPA control system using various tools e.g. ALSPA Maintenance Server. This will also enable participants to read and understands basic project documentations.

At the end of the course there will a site visit, where a brief demonstration of the components/topics discussed in the classroom will be provided.
