Course Description / Learning Objective

This first component of the SIMATIC service course teaches the basic knowledge of the design of automation systems, the configuration and parameterisation of the hardware, handling with the STEP 7 Basis Software and the fundamentals of programming. You also get an overview of human machine interfacing, PROFIBUS DP and the integration of drives. You will reinforce your theoretical knowledge in numerous practical exercises on a TIA plant model. This consists of an S7-300 automation system, 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 to understand the relationships between components. On completion of the course, you will thus be able to not only diagnose simple hardware faults or replace modules, but also coordinate components optimally, carry our safe fault diagnostics and thus reduce downtimes.
