Brief The Class starts with an exhaustive discussion of the system block diagram of the XLS System and its front end application program, namely the XBS System.
The class then presents a very effective installation sequence for the system under consideration. This requires a discussion of available enclosures and field and panel wiring. This leads to working with chassis components installation and internal channel and data wiring. This is followed by local rail module installation and wiring required therefore. This leads to system power up and testing. This completes the first part of the class namely hardware/installation and wiring.
Remark: This part of the class may be de-emphasized depending upon student knowledge of earlier but similar systems or if the systems are already wired up and running.
Part 2 of the class is concerned with engineering of the XLS system and is quite abstract. Time is spent on the engineering language syntax and programming rules. This is used to create an initial start-up version of an application program. This naturally leads to downloading and testing procedures. This is followed by actual field wire connections and service/trouble shooting issues. This is followed by a final application program download and elaborate testing for proper system operation.
The entire sequence above is supported by actual demonstrations on the part of the instructor and followed by student exercises which are reviewed by the instructor. In addition each student group demonstrates their system/stations’ functionality.
Finally the entire sequence is repeated by the students working independently on an new project assignment given by the instructor. A completed fully functioning project is a very satisfying and confidence building experience.
The class also addresses installation and other operational issues of the latest and greatest software revisions.
