Course Number
Course Purpose
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to apply maintenance
and troubleshooting techniques to diagnose and correct common
problems that may occur with a Kinetix® 6000 system.
During class, you will practice operating and troubleshooting the
system through hands-on exercises using workstations and the
Studio 5000 Logix Designer® application.
Building upon the skills developed in the Fundamentals of Motion
Control (CCN130) course, you will develop skills to help maintain and
troubleshoot a multi-axis motion control system. You will practice
identifying faults related to hardware and software by employing
methods such as viewing fault code tables, interpreting system LEDs,
and working with other status indicators.
