EIKON® II

Course Overview

Students will expand on knowledge from the EIKON® I course to learn how to create complex control programs and logic symbols. Students will also be able to identify programming as it is implemented within a complete system and will utilize naming standards to create a library for quickly placing previously developed logic into new systems, thus making programming more efficient. Building a properties page, simulating a control program, and major customization to EquipmentBuilder programs are among several other intermediate EIKON features offered in this course.

Course Objectives

After successfully completing this course, you will be able to use Automated Logic’s EIKON tool to quickly and efficiently:

  • Create basic control programs.
  • Use programming and naming standards.
  • Create a symbol library.
  • Commission a control program.
  • Use EIKON productivity tools.
  • Build a properties page.
  • Make major edits to an existing control program.
  • Create an advanced control program with a custom sequence of operation.

Prerequisites

Who Is This Course For?

The EIKON II course has been developed for individuals that require advanced programming sequences to accomplish custom scenarios. Learners will use all the options within EIKON as well as the EquipmentBuilder tool.

Course Formats

Traditional Classroom

A live instructor will lead up to 12 students (course dependent) in hands-on exercises with minimal lecture in between. Using the situated learning techniques of the Kirkpatrick Model, this methodology fosters a collaborative learning environment where students are positioned to maximize knowledge retention. This course is a 2- or 3-day event depending on location.

Instructor-Led eLearning

A live instructor will lead students using video conferencing and remote access software. The student will have remote access to a training station to complete hands-on tasks, giving them a virtual classroom experience from many miles away. This course is hosted in the same 2-day timeframe and manner as the traditional classroom format.

Video-Led Virtual

The video-led virtual training allows the student to take up to 9 business days to complete the equivalent of a 1-3-day, instructor-led course. Using video tutorials as the instructor, students will execute the workbook tasks and upload assignments using the Automated Logic Training Portal, asking questions through the discussion board where a dedicated instructor will facilitate. This format also offers “instructor hours” where students have live contact with a certified instructor and other registered students.
