This course is recommended for instrumentation and maintenance technicians, managers, and configuration engineers who need to know about DeltaV hardware.
This course provides an overview of the DeltaV Control Network, M- and S-series hardware, and software applications. Upon completion, you will be familiar with the hardware and be able to perform troubleshooting techniques. This 4-day course focuses on the hardware components that make up the DeltaV system: M-series controllers and I/O, S-series controllers and I/O (including CHARMs), and DeltaV Smart Switches. Using a combination of lectures and workshops, you will learn how to use operator and diagnostic tools to identify and locate hardware-related fault conditions. Workshops provide the opportunity to disassemble and reassemble the M- and S-series hardware and return the system to an operating state. If your systems include bus technologies such as Foundation Fieldbus, we recommend courses 7030, 7032, or 7037. The 7018 course satisfies the prerequisite requirement for these bus courses. (except 7032). This course includes access to brief recorded demonstrations available after course completion so students can review exercises completed in class.
