Course Duration:     5 days

Course Description


This course is specially developed, for C/Es, 2/Es & ETOs, keeping in mind the technological advances happening in the Merchant Naval Ships, by way of Programmable Logic Controllers, Human Machine Interface, SCADA, Variable Frequency Drives, Encoders, Digital Process Controllers (PID), Smart Digital Instruments, etc. The course includes extensive practical exercises & demonstration of varied instruments, Digital Process Controllers, PLC & HMI systems. Course Participants are taken through practical wiring up of PID Control systems, Calibration of Positioners, Siemen's SIPART Initialization, and a whole lot of Instrumentation Systems. This is five-day intensive practical course to bring up analytical and trouble shooting skills on Modern Automation & Control Systems on-Board present-day Ships.
