Course Overview

Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) is more than a concept. TIA Automation is a strategy developed by Siemens that emphasizes the seamless integration of automation products. The TIA strategy incorporates a wide variety of automation products such as programmable controllers, computer numerical controls, Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), and drives which are easily connected via open protocol networks

An important aspect of TIA is the ability of devices to communicate with each other over various network protocols, such as Ethernet and PROFIBUS DP. PROFIBUS DP is an open bus standard for a wide range of applications in various manufacturing and automation applications. Siemens AC drives can easily communicate with other control devices such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and personal computers (PCs) through the PROFIBUS-DP communication system and other various protocols.

This knowledge will help you better understand customer applications. In addition, you will be able to describe products to customers and determine important differences between products. You should complete Basics of Electricity before attempting Basics of AC Drives. An understanding of many of the concepts covered in Basics of Electricity is required for Basics of AC Drives.
