Day two covers IEC61131 programming topics such as, address mapping, use of multiple programming languages and CoDeSys Visualization tutorials. The final day features web page design, examples of WAGO DLL and use of the 750-841 file system.
"There will also be opportunities to discuss a variety of applications, including those brought up by attendees," Immordino said. "We are immersing attendees in control technology by incorporating open discussion with hands-on exercises, which benefits both attendees and their employers."
