  • MS Windows Expertise
  • Intro to PLCs and Languages - Online Instructor-Led course (S7OILPLCI1B)

This first level service course teaches the basic S7 system concept, hardware configuration and parameterization, S7 software (SIMATIC TIA Portal) basics, and an overview of programming fundamentals. Human Machine Interface (HMI) and PROFINET IO basics are also included.

Numerous hands-on exercises using a Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) plant model reinforce practical experience and theoretical knowledge. The TIA plant model consists of an S7-1500 automation system, ET200SP distributed I/O, SIMATIC Comfort Panel, and a conveyor model.

Students experience and learn TIA concepts and gain an unders tanding of the relationships between key industrial automation components. Upon completion of the course, students are able to utilize STEP 7 tools, and techniques to accurately recognize, diagnose, and remedy control system faults, reducing costly downtimes.

On-site options:? Modular in design, this course is fully customizable for those interested in on-site training.? Topics are designed for adjustments to meet plant specific needs.
