Introduction

We live in a digitised representation of just about any enterprise thus making possible improvements, optimization, and correct functioning of many endeavors. Using concepts from the Internet of Things (IoT), it is possible to attach a digital interface to just about any object (or thing) and integrate this object into a much larger system with added value and capabilities. LabVIEW is one powerful tool that enables this integration of many components to build highly engineered systems.

This highly interactive EuroMaTech training course on LabVIEW has been designed so that delegates get involved on the practical aspects of building a modern SCADA system from scratch. Through a set of exercises, delegates will get a chance to design and program several components of a complete SCADA system including Internet communications using the Modbus protocol. We will use actual LabVIEW tools that will interface to actual sensors and actuators that correspond to a small (lab scale) water treatment process.

Participants attending the 5-day LabVIEW Level 1 training course will develop the following competencies:

  • Update and improve their knowledge of LabVIEW, its components and applications
  • Develop their skills in analysing existing LabVIEW applications
  • Evaluate and assess existing LabVIEW applications at their organization
  • Help their organizations with new applications of LabVIEW
  • Help their organization in improving or optimizing the use of their LabVIEW resources.
Who Should Attend

This training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals employed in Process, Chemical, and Petrochemical industries, but it will be particularly beneficial to:

  • Instrument technicians
  • Laboratory technicians and operators
  • Process and instrumentation operators and engineers
  • Process and control operators and engineers
Programme Objectives  

EuroMaTech’s LabVIEW Level 1 training course aims to help participants to achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the importance, capabilities, and organization of LabVIEW applications
  • Develop their skills in programming using LabVIEW
  • Develop their skills in designing LabVIEW data aquisition applications
  • Develop their skills in programming HMI and Internet communications using LabVIEW
  • Complete the design and programming of an actual SCADA system
Training Methodology  

The LabVIEW Level 1 training course will combine presentations with instructor-guided interactive discussions between participants. Practical hands-on exercises, video material and the work on an actual SCADA system for a water treatment process will be completed on a daily basis.  

Programme Summary

This EuroMaTech training course will begin with a review of LabVIEW fundamentals and quickly covering LabVIEW programming and its applications to HMI design. Modern applications emphasize the Internet of Things (IoT) and the course will cover this capability by addressing interoperability of SCADA components using Modbus. The course continues with a coverage of sensors, instrumentation, and virtual instruments. On the last day, we put together all the components of a fully functional SCADA system.
