There is hardly a home or business that does not hve some kind of a network in place or wants one or has one that needs some tuning, repair or other service. But the problem is that in this day an age there are too many network "experts" and "gurus" that have mystified the whole process and for any network service at all, you have to hire an expert and have to pay for an evaluation, estimation, diagnostics and a whole lot of other formalites before you can get anything done at all!

At CITS we make everything very simple and straight forward for you. Simply call me directly and I will fly out there and do whatever you need done at your site. All you will be paying is the cost of travel, the air fare, hotel and my per diem and then a simple labor rate of $193.20 per hour, that's it. And of course the cost of materials. Who does that nowadays? Please ask aound and find out. Obviusly I am not looking to get rich here at this point. Just to keep busy and do YOU some good! That's all. Please don't fall for that high sounding network lingo and trust my experience. I solve problems just standing there!!

Remember, the good Microsoft and other great vendors may have invented and put the network systems in place in the first place and the network gururs are great people but they will make you go thrugh a very formal and stiff process. Whereas I will get it working informally and completely before they will figure out what to do even! And I will figure out and setup the network design without even using a piece of paper and pen! Well, may be a pen and a notebook. But I will give you a write up after all is setup. Don't worry there will be some documentation!

My number is (651)442-9044 and is almost alway ON. I am looking for a PROBLEM to fix!

And I forgot to say, I work on networks Small or Lage, at home or abroad. Nothing is too small or too big. I have not said "NO" in my life yet!

Thank you.

Cost                        $1990 per person at site, $1290 per person St Paul


Pre-requisites      CXBS1003, CXBS3001


Brief                      The objective of the course is to expose the student to the full range of capabilities of the Honeywell CARE 4.0 ngineering Application.  The course is extensive and hence is full 5 days with each day extending to 10 hours of work. The goal of this drill is to make the student conversant with each Engineering Platform in CARE 4.0.


Remark 1             The course aims at working through the mechanics of the CARE 4.0 Engineering process and not at the creation of a complete and exhaustive application program for the end-user.  For a complete power usage of this product the student will also need the in-depth application engineering class(es) for the relevant platform [Please check the CITS Training Catalog @ or call CITS @ (651) 646-2476].


Remark 2             For further clarification please call your training specialist Riaz Hussain for a complete answer (651) 646-2476.       


                               The getting started section shows how to start and exit CARE program, problem Windows and the use of online help.The next module of the course goes into the IDE of the CARE 4.0 Engineering Application. We discuss the different Engineering platforms in CARE 4.0 such as C-Bus engineering, LonWorks Engineering.  All Platforms are reviewed in depth The class then makes an in depth tour of the following engineering platforms


                         1.     C-Bus Engineering

                                Controller/Plant configuration

                                Control Strategy

                                Switching Logic

                               CARE Editors

                               Time ProgramTerminal Assignment


                    2.           LonWorks Network Engineering

                               Excel 500/50 Network Interface


                                Design/Configure Network

                                On Net Tuning


                           3.   Excel 10 Applications

                                Export Zone Manager File to E-Vision          

CARE Time Program


                           4.   Excel Link Controller

                           5.    Open Link Controller

                           6.    OPS Controller


                               It is not possible to detail every function that is dealt with in each platform above.  Suffice it to say that the completer engineering process is discussed and tested in each case with simple though illustrative engineering/ configuration models on which complex real applications could be based.


                              The class will also discuss file management, which includes such functions as CARE Backup/Restore and element export/import, upload/download controllers and programming EPROMS.


                               Generation of site documentation is discussed fully and illustrated.


There is also an intermediate discussion of XL Online commissioning tool.
