Module 1

This module introduces safety associations, regulations and standards that have been created for machine safety. Hardware and system components used in a typical GuardLogix system are covered. The many types of safety devices that can be connected to a GuardLogix system including fault detection methods employed by safety PLCs are introduced. Understanding safety device connections, functionality and terminology will in turn help in configuring, programming and troubleshooting a safety PLC. The student should be able to point out the differences between a GuardLogix and a standard ControlLogix application. To conclude the module the use of safety tags and how to map standard tags into safety tags is demonstrated.
