Brief The class starts with various popular configuration block diagrams. Students are encouraged to identify their own systems in the class discussions. The course then goes into a brief Windows basics session.
Typical procedures are discussed and extensively exemplified. Such procedures include XBS start-up, sign-on, sign-off, system status, point information display, responding to alarms, scheduling and system reports.
In the next step the course proceeds with the items in the XBS menu bar. The EDIT menu item allows site selection, programming of passwords, date/time, time schedules, text descriptors, parameters, operators, and color schemes. This menu item also allows graphic editing, graphic programming and XBS configuration. Each of these functions are exemplified on screen in full view of students. The students then get to learn each function with the help of very carefully created detailed lab exercises.
Next the students learn the DATA item in the XBS menu bar. This items allows user system data access via various access schemes. These include Data Access via quick access group, by point name, and by point attributes. This item also allows trend programming and access of subsystem data such as data form Micro/Macrocels.
Next the reports menu item is discussed. This menu item allows basic reports for the user about his/her system. These reports include the alarm history, operator activity, controller alarm history and controller current alarm reports.
The GRAPHICS menu item allows graphic data access in various ways. These include graphic data access via the top-level graphic, graphic name, and by point name. This item also allows some convenience functions such as redisplay graphic function.
The APPLICATIONS menu item allows start stop function for the controller application programs and also running of other PC applications.
The UTILITIES menu item provides various convenience programs and useful functions. Most of these are functions available in Windows such as Calendar and Cardfile etc. The course concentrates on the file transfer item as other items are covered in other courses.
XBS has an extensive HELP utility built into it. The course discusses XBS HELP extensively and allows students to test the many features via an elaborate exercise on the Help menu bar item.
