APP 2240: SEL-2240 Axion Distributed Control and Integration Platform


This course is intended for engineers, technical consultants, and technicians who have an understanding of:

  • Boolean, math-based, and IEC 61131-3 logic
  • Power system topology and architecture
  • SEL relays, communications methods, and protocols

The APP 2240 course is designed to be highly interactive and activity based. During APP 2240, in groups of two, you will configure a realistic communications scheme using the SEL-2240 Axion Distributed Control and Integration Platform. Each section of this course will guide you, step-by-step, through configuring this communications scheme.
