TRAININGin DCS & Batch Controllers
This course is intended to provide an understanding of the types of computer-based devices, systems and networks used in modern industrial plants as well as the ways in which these elements can be compromised via cyber attacks. Attendees will also learn to build risk management techniques to improve their plant’s cybersecurity.
Join us for a half-day session with experts from Honeywell, as they dive into the considerations, benefits, and decision factors between using a PLC or a DCS as your control system. They'll talk about how to get the most from your instrumentation budget, with savings from installation to operations and maintenance, all while optimizing connectivity and productivity.
The course will cover fundamentals of temperature, pressure, flow, and level measurements; process control loops and tuning, with process control exercises. Programmable Logic Controls (PLC), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Fieldbus Technology, and final control elements will be presented and discussed.
