Course Description:

The purpose of this class is to provide instructions for installing and maintaining a Niagara 4 site using the most efficient and useable data modeling standards in Niagara 4.  This course describes the current procedures for the Niagara 4 software migration, how to create Niagara 4 station databases.

Best Practices: At the end of this class, the student will have actually started and completed two projects using a JACE and the N4 operating system. One project will be a stand alone JACE and the other will be a JACE with N4 Supervisor. The student will commission the JACE, set up licensing, add the appropriate network drivers and Jar files, add the appropriate controllers, and add graphics. To the extent possible, this class will mirror the actual steps a student will take in the field to develop any new project.

Visualization:: At the end of this class, the student will be empowered to provide higher quality graphics to their customers and direct their customers to what they actually need to see.


Each student must be Niagara 4 Certified and have a laptop running Vykon WorkPlace Verison 4.2xxand the most recent AX 3,8xx
