Introduction to Networks

The NETWORKS: Introduction training program, or unit, is designed to familiarize trainees with some different types of control systems and some basic concepts that apply to control system networks. After completing this program, the trainees should be able to describe the layout and operation of traditional non-networked control systems and the layout and operation of some common networked control systems. They should also be able to describe factors that can affect the speed at which signals can be sent across a network, describe the various levels of network protocol, and describe common physical network layouts, or topologies.
