Course Description

The third course in the Distributed Control System certificate program will build on what you have learned in CNTR-120 Distributed Control Systems II. The objective of this course is to have the students build their own configuration and graphics (from scratch), to achieve the same control and operation of the process skids/carts that was supplied to them during the last class.


The course starts with a review of previous classes and then focuses on Foundation Field bus configuration as a number of the process devices use this interface. HART is also covered as some of the devices are analog and knowing how to bring in additional device information will be required.


Details on the configuration of the Delta V SIS module are explained to allow the student to configure the process skid/carts shutdowns. These shutdowns are very similar to what you would find in a processing facility and include fire and gas monitors and HiHi/LoLo process trips. More training on the Delta V graphics software is also covered.


Upon completion of this course you will have completely configured the graphics, PID control, and SIS logic to run the level process skids/carts. You will also understand how to communicate with different field devices and be commissioning and re-tuning the process for your newly developed configuration.



CNTR-120 is the mandatory requirement for this course. You are required to show proof of completion by emailing conedadvising@sait.ca.
