Table of contents

12401-03 Digital Logic Circuits (10 Hours) Describes the various electronic circuits and gates used in digital control circuits and the truth tables for each. Covers variations on gates, such as flip-flops, shift registers, and counters. 12402-03 Instrument Calibration and Configuration (65 Hours) Introduces methods of instrumentation calibration, including the three- and five-point methods. Covers components that require calibration in pneumatic, analog, and smart loops, as well as methods commonly used to calibrate these components. 12403-03 Performing Loop Checks (7.5 Hours) Covers loop check steps, including verifying mechanical installation, validating that the loop has correct tag numbers, performing loop checks, and finally proving the loop. 12404-03 Troubleshooting and Commissioning a Loop (10 Hours) Teaches methodical troubleshooting techniques used to locate problems in control loops. Also addresses how to isolate a loop in order to troubleshoot it. Covers commissioning of a loop once it is repaired, loop checked, and calibrated. 12405-03 Tuning Loops (15 Hours) Introduces formulas and their applications to PID control. Offers a theory-based approach to PID control and its application in industrial process control. Addresses open, closed, and visual loop tuning. 12406-03 Programmable Logic Controllers (10 Hours) Introduces the application of PLCs in industrial process control, as well as the binary numbering system used in computer-based control. Covers components of PLCs, including power supplies, I/O modules, processor modules, types of communication bus, and memory. 12407-03 Disturbed Control Systems (10 Hours) Describes how DCS was developed by combinitechnologies of single loop control, direct digisupervisory control. It covers DCS basic hardware requhow control loops are implemented into a DCS, types of data transmission used in DCS, communication protocohuman interfaces. 12408-03 Analyzers (20 Hours) Defines various types of analyzers and their applications in industrial process control. Includes a discussion of analyzers that measure or monitor variables such as density, specific gravity, viscosity, turbidity, flashpoint, oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), pH, conductivity of a liquid, oxygen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, total hydrocarbon content (THC), and particulates in a clean room. Also defines chromatography and ultraviolet and infrared more
