DeltaV Classes provide a better understanding about the different aspects of your DeltaV Systems.  Below is a list and brief description of a few different classes available at the Emerson Process Management Education Center in Round Rock, Texas (Austin, Texas).  These are classes that are also offered at Applied Control throughout the year and training is available at your site as well.

  • DeltaV Implementation I This 4-1/2 day course covers a complete DeltaV system implementation. Upon completion of this course the student will be able to define system capabilities, define nodes, configure continuous, and sequential control strategies, operate the system and define users and security.
  • DeltaV Implementation II – This 4-1/2 day course is for process control engineers responsible for configuring the DeltaV system. Advanced topics will be covered including displays, function blocks, and configuration tips.  (Must have completed DeltaV Implementation I or have experience with DeltaV).
  • DeltaV Hardware and Troubleshooting – This 4-day course focuses on the hardware components that make up the DeltaV system: M-series controllers and I/O, S-series controllers and I/O (including CHARMs), and DeltaV Smart Switches. Using a combination of lectures and workshops, you will learn how to use operator and diagnostic tools to identify and locate hardware-related fault conditions. Workshops provide the opportunity to disassemble and reassemble the M- and S-series hardware and return the system to an operating state.

These courses are recommended for instrumentation and maintenance technicians, managers, and configuration engineers who need to know about DeltaV hardware and software.  They provide an overview of the DeltaV Control Network, M- and S-series hardware, and software applications. Upon completion, you will be familiar with the hardware, software, and be able to perform troubleshooting techniques.
