Control Logic is pleased to offer our customers a comprehensive training course covering the programming of the FP series family of PLCs from Panasonic. Some of you may also know this product range from its previous branding names of National or Nais. The aim of the course is to familiarise you with the features and benefits of FPWIN Pro programming software and the Panasonic range of PLCs. We will cover some basic programming exercises, however it is not our aim to teach you PLC programming. As such, we would hope that all in attendance have at least some basic programming knowledge.

Each student will be provided with a copy of the current Panasonic FPWIN Pro 7 programming software licensed for a maximum of 10000 steps. To gain the most from this training course, it is essential each student bring their own laptop.
