Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are used in a variety of applications in the marine industry, including propulsion systems, safety systems, data acquisition and motor starters. They are reliable and require relatively little maintenance.
Marine engineers and ETOs must have a good understanding of automated systems, including PLC-based systems, in order to maintain them in a safe and operational condition. Since any onboard system can fail, fault finding also forms part of an engineer’s regular duties.
This will help you to better understand onboard applications and to develop a systematic approach in the many troubleshooting cases you are likely to encounter.
This training package is appropriate for:
Management level marine engineers operational level marine engineers ETOs and electricians
electrical engineering cadets
anyone who is starting to work with PLC-based applications.
