CEU Credits: 3.2
Course Hours: 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
This lab-intensive course focuses on the configuration fundamentals, the calibration process, the measurements of multiple variables, and the utilization of computer-based configuration tools for both digital transmitters and digital valve controllers.
This course offers you hands-on, working knowledge of smart field devices with an emphasis on measurement accuracy, advanced information gathering, decreased maintenance time, ease-of-configuration and calibration, and diagnostic capabilities. You will cover use in conventional systems and enhancements/improvements when combined with digital control networks, including basic and multivariable digital transmitters and digital valve-positioners. You will also be exposed to various hand-held communicators and computer-based configuration and diagnostic software.
You will be able to:
Differentiate between analog and digital instruments
Formulate how digital signal sampling works in digital instruments
Identify the strengths and weaknesses of digital instruments
Identify the effects of using digital instruments in closed loop control
Configure, re-range, and calibrate smart/digital field devices
Configure and calibrate control valves fitted with digital valve controllers
Test the capabilities of HART™ communication
Test the operation of a digital multivariable transmitter
Test the operation of multi-drop transmitter applications
Communicate with digital devices utilizing computer-based software
Test diagnostic capabilities of digital valve controllers
You will cover:
