There are currently no Courses Scheduled for O-CON20401.

Course Description

O-CON20401

Course Description

This course familiarizes participants with advanced level programming of ALSPA CONTROCAD engineering tool and, provides an overview of ALSPA HMI configuration.

This course will enable them to set up ALSPA HMI for first time use. They will learn how to perform online forcing and setting update to make small modification in logic, without disturbing plant operation. They will learn about MFC3000 firmware.

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.
