ACS 1000 Hands-on Training


Course goal
This course is targeted at future commissioning and service
engineers who completed the ACS 1000 S&C training. This
additional hands-on day allows the participants to gain more
practical experience. Working mostly on their own the participants will become confident in the handling of components,
commissioning of the drive and using the appropriate software
tools.
Learning objectives
After completion of the course the participants are able to:
Operate the ACS 1000
Carry out cold commissioning service work and preventive
maintenance
Troubleshoot the drive
Participants
Commissioning and service engineers, testing and maintenance
personnel of ABB and certified technical partners

Prerequisites
Completion of the G711 Service and Commissioning course
Laptop with DriveDebug and DriveWindow loaded, fiber
optic programming tool (RUSB-02 or PCMCIA equivalent)
Topics
Short introduction to training equipment
Practical exercises (different choices, e.g. insulation resistance test, SW download, SW tools, troubleshooting, etc.)
Discussion of problems/questions with the instructor
Methods
Practical hands-on training using training equipment and control
boards in combination with well-chosen exercises.
Discussion time with the instructor for problems and questions
arisen during the S&C course.
