Course Overview

The course is mainly directed at users with engineering tasks who would like to become familiar with SIMATIC S7 programming in a concise form. Beyond that, operating and monitoring, the basics of distributed peripherals and the handling of drives are introduced. The idea of Totally Integrated Automation is demonstrated. After the course, the participant will be able to structure and create simple S7 programs, making it possible to efficiently work with STEP 7 and thus reduce the engineering phase. The course provides an optimal entry level to the product-specific and in depth supplementary courses. All topics are illustrated through practical exercises on a system model, consisting of the S7- 300 automation system, the ET200S distributed peripheral, the TP 170B touch panel, the MM420 drive and a conveyor model.

Who should take this course

Programming engineer, commissioning engineer, project design engineer.
