Courses

TIA Portal Programming 1v15

This course is the first in a three part series which builds basic programming skills with Siemens STEP7 TIA Portal software. Students will learn S7 project management, program design and application development. This is an aggressively paced curriculum covering the S7 programming editor with Ladder, Function Block Diagram, and Statement List, programming languages, as well as key software tools. This course takes a systems approach using the S7-1500 PLC, plus basic connectivity and functionality of an TP1200, HMI, G120 Drive, and ET200SP, PROFINET I/O.

Throughout the course, students will build a STEP7 project from the beginning, learning proper program structure and documenting. Software diagnostic tools will be used for debugging both hardware and code. Various instruction sets, memory areas, program blocks, and libraries will be introduced to provide the student with solid concepts of structured programming.

PCS7 System Engineering 1

This course is designed for controls engineers who are responsible for project design, development and commissioning a PCS7 system. The goals of this course are to help the student learn basic system configuration and project design using standard system tools and libraries. This course begins with the definition of a typical project and planning the system architecture. The students will then actively build, test and debug a simple PCS7 process system exploring the Automation Station, Engineering Station and Operator Station engineering environments. Hands-on lab exercises are used to build experience with system engineering, process optimization and common troubleshooting.
