This live training class is designed for those who have passed the certification tests for both MotionWorks IEC Basics and PLCopen Basics.
MPiec and Sigma-5 Application Programming is the third in a series of classes on the MPiec controllers. It is designed for technicians and engineers who are already comfortable with IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen within the MotionWorks IEC software environment.
The user will configure and program the MP2300Siec controller using Function Block, Ladder, and Structured Text programming. MotionWorks IEC - Pro Version 3 software, will be used. This class does NOT focus on programming techniques, but rather on how the different controller features work individually. Sigma-5 troubleshooting, configuration, and tuning will be explored using Yaskawa’s SigmaWin+ software. After completing this class, the student may refer to the SFC eLearning Video to learn the Sequential Function Chart programming language.

Social Distancing During Training Classes:
Yaskawa America, Technical Training Services follows the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) recommendation of social distancing at least six feet during factory training classes held at the Yaskawa America facility in Waukegan, IL. To meet these recommendations, we’ve physically rearranged the classrooms and limited the number of students enrolled in the class.
Students and instructors must adhere to Yaskawa’s safety protocol for mask or face shield utilization in all Yaskawa training facilities and be fully vaccinated. Students must bring with them and wear during the class, a face mask or face shield that has been approved by the CDC for COVID-19 face protection.
Yaskawa TTS provides a number of training classes for its customers that require the use of low level voltages (120vac, 208vac and 460vac). To ensure a level of safety for the student while working with training class equipment using these voltages, TTS follows an Arch Flash Policy that is consistent with NFPA 70E.
Each student attending class must wear non-melting, untreated, natural fiber long pants.
