Proficy iFIX Level 1

This 4 day course has been designed to giving engineers a detailed insight into screen development
and hardware structure of an IFIX HMI project.

The course will allow students to develop an understanding of what factors to consider when
designing, developing and using IFIX in the field. They will gain knowledge of the system, including
specific IFIX terminology.

Where possible, application specific mimics, and plant related exercises an Window development
will be used to allow the students to gain the greatest possible benefit from the course.

The course will consist of mainly practical exercises and demonstrations, each student will
have one system that will consist of a PC with iFIX, and an Ethernet link to a PLC.
