Kepware Technologies announced its new hands-on training program, designed to help customers set-up and operate communication systems for automation applications. Customers can schedule on-site customized classes at their facility with the Kepware training staff. In addition, courses will be offered at Kepware’s Portland, Maine headquarters once a month. This two-day course provides seating for up to 10 attendees. Kepware is also scheduling “on-the-road” training at special events throughout the United States, and internationally in regions such as Asia and Europe.
Kepware’s training program is designed to address the specific challenges unique to users’ automation environments. Courses can be customized based on the trainees’ levels of expertise, location, application and industry requirements. The labs and training material cover core concepts, such as OPC standards, client/server communication, and connecting to a PLC or device, as well as more advanced subjects such as communication optimization and diagnostics.
Courses cover Kepware’s OPC-enabled products, such as KEPServerEX, LinkMaster and RedundancyMaster.
Other topics include ptimization of client, server and device communication; debugging using the OPC Quick Client and diagnostic tools; performing data analytics, linking, logging and monitoring alarms with advanced plug-ins; and exploring OPC DA, .NET and UA specifications and implementation
