Course Description / Learning Objective

This course is aimed at users with engineering tasks who want to become familiar with the expanded programming facilities of SIMATIC S7. You get an overview of human machine interfacing, PROFIBUS DP and the integration of drives. You will reinforce your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a TIA plant model. This consists of an S7-300 programmable controller; ET200S distributed I/O, TP 170B Touch Panel, Micromaster 420 drive and a conveyor model. What you learn about Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) will teach you to take a holistic view of your plant and help you to understand the relationship between the individual components. We will teach you how to structure and create extensive S7 programs. This enables you on completion of the course to work efficiently with STEP 7, shorten the engineering phase and minimise fault sources through optimal configuration of your plant. The comprehensive understanding you gain will give you new impetus and ideas for production optimisation.
