TABLE OF CONTENTS (Total Level Hours: 145) 40401-09 Standby and Emergency Systems (12.5 Hours) Explains the NEC(R) requirements for installation and control of emergency power and lighting systems, including batteries, generators, and uninterruptible power supplies. 40402-09 Instrument Calibration and Configuration (10 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. 40403-09 Basic Process, Control Elements, Transducers, and Transmitters (15 Hours) Defines and introduces common instrumentation elements and their principles of operation. Covers identification of variables measured by each element and selection of the proper types of devices in an instrument loop using the device's technical manuals, specification sheets, pictures, or actual samples. 40404-09 Control Valves, Actuators, and Positioners (40 Hours) Covers the construction, operation, and uses of a variety of control valves, actuators, and positioners, including identification, selection, and maintenance of control valves using applicable specifications and schematics. 40405-09 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. 40406-09 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. 40407-09 Process Control Loops and Tuning (20 Hours) Introduces formulas and their applications to PID control. Provides a theory-based approach to PID control and its application in industrial process control. Addresses open, closed, and visual loop tuning. NEW! 40408-09 Data Networks (10 Hours) Describes the different types of cables and cable terminations used with computer networks. Introduces the types of networks used in data systems and explains how information is exchanged over data networks. 40409-09 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. 40410-09 Distributed Control Systems (10 Hours) Describes how DCS was developed by combining the technologies of single loop control, direct digital control, and supervisory control. It covers DCS basic hardware requirements, how control loops are implemented into a DCS, types of data transmission used in DCS, communication protocols, and human interfaces.
