This course introduces the customer to a Siemens integrated automation system. Participants will build skills on commissioning, troubleshooting and upgrading an automation system complete with HMI, PLC, drive and communications network. Students will learn to navigate STEP7, use the built-in diagnostics tools and perform basic program modifications. Profibus DP configuration and troubleshooting are included using remote I/O, a touch panel display and a drive system. The course format is a combination of instruction and hands-on exercises. A realistic conveyor model is used for demonstrations and participant exercises. Exercises allow students to practice tasks such as testing, debugging and using diagnostic tools.

Industrial Communication?

Communication from the process control to the field level is possible over the SIMATIC networks PROFIBUS, ETHERNET or TCP/IP. The family SIMATIC NET contains an array of products with different performance characteristics. They regulate over a operative system interface in which data exchange is possible over various levels, between various automation stations or various devices.

SIMATIC Industry Software?

With the help of the program and configuration software STEP 7, automation systems SIMATIC S7-300 and S7-400 are programmed and configured. The hardware configuration takes place for CPUs with digital modules as well as for the connection of different components of a PROFIBUS, ETHERNET or other network components. The programming software is IEC 61131 standard.

Drive Technology?

Variable speed drives, regardless if a standard drive or a large drive, if a AC drive or a DC drive are suitable in the frame of Totally Integrated Automation and also the SIMATIC world. From this comes the following advantages: • Uniformity and passage from the control level to the drives • The DRIVE engineering system is fully integrated into the STEP 7 environment • SIMATIC Manager for common data administration • The time cost by the integration of DRIVE technology in the automation solution is significantly reduced.
