SIMATIC S7 service training 1

Description / learning objective:

In this first part of the SIMATIC service training, we will provide you with basic knowledge about the structure of automation systems, the configuration and parameterization of hardware, handling the STEP 7 basic software and the basics of programming. You will also gain an overview of operating & monitoring, PROFIBUS DP and the integration of drives.

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 can take a holistic view of your system and understand the interaction of the individual components. After attending the course, you will be able to diagnose simple hardware faults, replace assemblies, optimally coordinate the components, carry out reliable fault diagnostics and thus reduce downtimes.
