Class Topics:

This self-guided training class is designed for engineers and technicians who want to learn how to design basic HMI screens using the Movicon HMI Editor. The student will be guided through the creation of a new HMI project of increasing complexity. The HMI communicates to the pre-configured and programmed MPiec controller using the PLCI protocol. Remote connection to Yaskawa training demo units and the live video feed is accomplished using an industrial-grade remote connection system provided by Secomea. The MP3300iec controller is used and familiarity with MotionWorks IEC is preferred, but no programming is required.
