Maintenance Management of your company's PLC (Programmable Logic Controller).

Image via Wikipedia
What is a PLC? How many PLCs is your bottom line depending on? Do you have an up to date list of all PLC model types, part availability, program copies, and details for your company? Do you have at least one trained person per shift, to maintain and troubleshoot your plant PLCs? Does your maintenance personnel work with PLCs following written company or corporate policy, and procedures?
If you could not answer with confidence or you answered ‘No’ to any of the above questions, you need to read this article on maintenance management of PLCs. Why? Because the PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) are the brains of your operation. When the PLC is not functioning properly, lines shut down, plants shutdown, even city bridges and water stations could cease …

PLC Training / Tutorial for Allen-Bradley (Video 1 of 11)

Image via WikipediaThese proven training techniques distinguish Ron Beaufort's Training from most other courses.
Find the rest of the series here:
Learn to be an effective troubleshooter, by teaching you to think the same way PLCs do.

These subjects are typically covered in the first few hours of the 40 hour long PLC Boot Camp course. The class room teaching is done with challenging hands-on exercises that ensure you retain what you learn.

These videos focus on the PLC-5, SLC-500, and Micrologix series. There are also PLC Boot Camp classes for the ControlLogix platform.

Made in Germany | Coal Mining Technology

Image by Getty Images via DaylifeGermany's coal mining industry is all but finished as viable coal seams are worked out. Following an earthquake, mines in the Saarland will close in 2012 and mining in North Rhine-Westphalia's will end in 10 years at most.

But German mining equipment is still in demand; more than a hundred mostly medium-sized businesses have found customers in countries where mining is booming. One such company is Eickhoff, in Bochum, which produces milling and cutting equipment for coal mining. Now Eickhoff exports 95% of its mining equipment, mainly to China and Russia. Robert Donauer went to a mine in the Ruhr Valley and paid a visit to Eickhoff.

Made in Germany | Siemens - Hightech Trains for Russia

Image via WikipediaRussian state railway company RZD is soon to receive the first of eight high-speed trains ordered from Siemens that will cut one hour off the trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

The deal that is worth over 600 million euros has involved various new challenges for the German electronics and engineering giant; the railway gauge in Russia is 33cm wider than in Germany, and the trains will also have to withstand harsh local weather conditions, with temperatures sometimes dropping to minus 50°C. Testing has so far been limited to simulations. But the first "Velaro RUS" train is now ready for shipment to Russia via the Baltic Sea. Our reporters Alexa Meyer and Alexandra von Nahmen are on board for its maiden voyage.

Made in Germany - High Speed Train

Image via WikipediaBisnis baru, Kereta cepat buatan Jerman.

Deutsche Bahn's planned stock market flotation due to take place in late October was postponed because of the global financial crisis, but it has not been scrapped. News of lucrative executive payouts linked to the flotation have attracted considerable criticism. At the moment, DB managers are traveling the world on the hunt for investors and new business ventures.

Germany's rail company is aiming to expand internationally with the help of its subsidiary DB-International. It has a staff of 800 and is involved in big infrastructure projects: from the building of a rail line through Saudi Arabia to the training of high-speed-train drivers in Taiwan. Only Germany and France have drivers who are experienced enough to drive these trains. Now they're helping to train their Taiwanese counterparts. Michael Altenhenne has visited the Deutsche Bahn's subsidiary in Taiwan.

OpenSCADA – The OpenSource SCADA System

Image via Wikipedia Scada systems are used for communication between software systems and the machines they control. The old monolithic Scada systems are being replaced by open, distributed environments, which provide a central overview of the whole system. Open protocols and network technology are applied to reduce costs while increasing quality and reliability of the system. Scada systems are used for communication between software systems and the mashines they control. The old monolithic Scada systems are being replaced by open, distributed environments, which provide a central overview of the whole system. Open protocols and network technology are applied to reduce costs while increasing quality and reliability of the system.OpenSCADA® has taken this trend one step further: by providing an open SCADA platform, system limitation are overcome. This means OpenSCADA® is independent of technologies. Furthermore, integration is simple, it is highly configurable, meaning that creating a …

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) at Mitchell Technical Institute

Image by Art Institute of Portland via FlickrAutomation controls incorporating Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is emerging as one of the fastest expanding areas of industry today. MTIs state-of-the-art program teaches students to use computers to collect management data and to use automated systems. Industries are placing greater emphasis on remotely controlling switching devices, gathering accurate inventory data, managing the operation of electrical devices, measuring and metering electrical systems, and automating routine tasks.

Automation Control/SCADA technicians will find employment in electric power utilities, gas companies, water systems, security systems, and in industrial applications. Graduates will install and maintain remote switches and communication devices, or operate computer networks to control remote switches.

Repost What is Automation?

Automation (ancient Greek: = self dictated), roboticization[1] or industrial automation or numerical control is the use of control systems such as computers to control industrial machinery and processes, reducing the need for human intervention.[2] In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provided human operators with machinery to assist them with the physical requirements of work, automation greatly reduces the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Processes and systems can also be automated. Automation plays an increasingly important role in the global economy and in daily experience. Engineers strive to combine automated devices with mathematical and organizational tools to create complex systems for a rapidly expanding range of applications and human activities. Many roles for humans in industrial processes presently lie beyond the scope of automation. Human-level pattern recognition, language recogniti…

Double Driver 3.0

Double Driver is a very simple and useful tool which not only allows you to view all the drivers installed on your system but also allows you to backup, restore, save and print all chosen drivers.One of the main reasons why you would want to collect installed drivers is if you don’t have the Driver CD that came with the computer or they are unavailable online. This comes in quite handy if you purchase a computer and want to backup the initial set of drivers. It can be quite difficulty for example to find drivers for hardware installed in a notebook if the operating system has to be setup again. Luckily Double Driver can now lend you a hand with that and save you a lot of time.Double Driver is a very simple and useful tool which not only allows you to view all the drivers installed …

Making images of hard drives is a useful way of having backup copies of all your information, including your entire operative system.For many years, only a few companies made this kind of programs and they were expensive. But now, there are some free alternatives that make this possible without spending any money. Besides, they are pushing commercial products to lower its prices because of the new competition.The industry is lead by two applications, Acronis True Image and Norton Ghost. These two are great and include an impressive array of options that many of the free applications don’t have.
