SIMATIC S7 service training 2

Description / learning objective:

The second part of the SIMATIC service training builds on the knowledge acquired in the first basic course with regard to STEP 7, operating and monitoring system, drive components and PROFIBUS DP and extends it in the direction of troubleshooting. The focus of this course is on troubleshooting, software troubleshooting and program adaptations. You will deepen your theoretical knowledge through numerous practical exercises on a SIMATIC system model. This consists of an S7-300 automation system, ET200S decentralized peripherals, TP 177B touch panel, Micromaster 420 drive and a conveyor model. With the knowledge of integrated production automation, you will have a holistic view of your system and understand the interaction of the individual components. After the course, you will be able to locate and rectify faults quickly and systematically. This will increase the productivity of the machine by reducing downtimes. You will be able to adapt your system to new conditions by making small program changes and enhancements.
