ILDÁNA provides an array of mainly technical / engineering training courses and consultancy services to the public and private sectors throughout the island of Ireland.
The various members of the ILDÁNA team are recognised as subject-matter-experts in their respective fields. ILDANÁ's trainers have years of practical experience and ensure that each course is up-to-date technically, well managed and consistently well-presented with clearly identified aims and learning opportunities.
The aim of this two day course is to give you a good clear understanding of the widespread use of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) & SCADA systems. These high quality versatile units can solve your process plant and manufacturing plant control problems. SCADA – Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition - is a graphic software system which communicates with a PLC or similar device and allows personnel to view a mimic diagram of the process. The operator can control the process from the graphic screen and enter set points to the PLC.
