The AVEVA Edge Training course is a 4-day, instructor-led class designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the features and functionality of the AVEVA Edge software. The software enables users and machine builders to quickly create intuitive, secure, and highly maintainable HMI applications for intelligent machines on a variety of platforms, including Windows, Windows IoT, and Linux, as well as on low-level devices. The course provides lectures and hands-on labs to supply and reinforce the knowledge needed to use the software to develop an HMI for a plant floor environment, using basic software elements. The HMI application will be developed using AVEVA Edge software features, such as tags, classes, indirect addressing, animation, symbols, scripting, alarms, real-time and historical trending, reports, and recipes. The HMI application also will have connections to databases, including SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL; AVEVA Historian; PLC drivers; and OPC UA. It will provide remote troubleshooting, remote client project security, and application backup.
