S7 V5.5 Programming 1

This course is for SIMATIC S7-300/400 PLC users who are involved with developing or sustaining automation systems and their application programs.

The S7 V5.5 Programming 1 course is the first in a three part series which builds basic programming skills with Siemens STEP7 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, and key software tools. This course takes a systems approach to the S7300/400 PLCs, plus basic connectivity and functionality of an HMI and PROFIBUS remote I/O.

Throughout this 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. The course format consists of instruction and hands-on exercises.

The course uses a conveyor model for realistic demonstrations and exercises.
