Course curriculum

  1. 1
    • 1. Case Study: Remote I/O System Modernization with Weidmüller u-remote

    • 2. A First Look at the Low-Code Future of PLC Programming

    • 3. What Is Node-RED and How Can I Use It To Create Industrial IoT Applications?

Ideal for you if…

  • You are interested in learning about modern automation and industrial IoT technologies including web-based programming, Node-RED, and Codesys

  • You want to learn how to develop low-code industrial IoT applications that include data collection and pre-processing

  • You are interested in modern remote I/O technology that supports many communication protocols including OPC-UA


As industrial devices become more intelligent and connected, more and more factories want to implement industrial IoT applications. These applications involve collecting data from devices on the factory floor and analyzing the collected data to find meaningful insights that drive business value. In the near future, IoT skills and knowledge will be essential for all engineers, programmers, and technicians.

At RealPars, we want to make sure that you have the skills you need to grow in your career, both now and in the future. That’s why we have partnered with Weidmüller to bring you this course.

Introduction to Wedmüller’s u-mation is designed to teach you everything you need to know to develop industrial IoT applications with Wedimüller’s u-mation platform.

The Weidmüller u-mation platform itself is made up of two core components - the u-remote remote I/O system, and the u-control control system.

This course will explain both of these components in detail by explaining the advantages of u-remote and u-control over other offerings and providing in-depth tutorials demonstrating how to configure and program both the u-remote and the u-control systems.

While learning how to work with the u-mation platform, you will see how easy it is to implement low-code industrial IoT applications using u-control’s web-based programming environment, Node-RED, IoT Gateway, and modular hardware.

By the end of this course, you will be equipped with the hardware and software knowledge required to implement your own industrial IoT applications using the u-mation platform.

Prepare for better pay & bigger responsibility

Eduardo Cali

I’m a maintenance technician at my company and I recently transferred to automation. We’re working more and more with Siemens so I needed to get up to speed on the newest PLC software. RealPars videos feel like a real classroom experience. The instructors are great…they’re easy to follow and they make the lessons relevant to real-world applications and I like that. I definitely recommend RealPars.

Mario Flores

I tried other online training, but I have to say that RealPars instructors helped me connect the dots in a way the others didn’t. I was able to expand my Siemens knowledge…I only knew Allen-Bradley…now I understand the differences and similarities better. I find RealPars to be a professional and affordable way to get the big picture of PLC as well as gain lots of practical knowledge.
