Overview:
This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) advanced programming course focuses on system and device level customization using the Designer interface in PME software. Students will learn the architecture of the ION meter along with using the Designer interface to examine the default frameworks. Students will be guided through a series of lab activities to creating custom applications for equipment monitoring, alarming, and logging. Students will learn to program the Virtual ION Processor(VIP)for special applications such as data aggregation, logging, and alarming. Students will then have the opportunity to create a custom virtual meter framework by aggregating multiple meters in the VIP and displaying the real-time and historical information from that newly created meter in the Vista application. Students will learn the differences between the default meter templates and firmware versions that can be uploaded to devices and be able to describe each. At the end of the course, students will have created frameworks for integrating the several types of WAGES devices available and programmed frameworks that will perform process and control applications. All this will be done remotely via our Virtual Classroom Offer (VILT). Virtual Environment Used The VILT will be deployed in the WebEX™ tool / environment You will receive a separate email with your connection information, link, and credentials to gain access to your WebEx™ session.
