SIMATIC S7 SCL

SIMATIC S7 WINCC

SIMATIC S7 GRAPH

The course is designed for programmers but can also be adapted for maintenance workers for automated installations. The course participants are trained on CPU Siemens Simatic S7-1500, Profinet unit ET200sp, TP700 Comfort Panel and Sinamics G120. On completion, all participants will be able to independently design control logic for simple processes and carry out basic diagnostics.

  • TIA Portal Engineering Tools: SIMATIC STEP7 and SIMATIC WinCC
  • Devices and network configuration within SIMATIC S7 family, with a case study on SIMATIC S7-1500
  • Structuring a problem, the use of program blocks and program editing tool
  • Binary and digital operations in FBD or LAD
  • Structuring data with program blocks
  • Creating universal program blocks
  • Searching for errors with the aid of diagnostic tools in TIA Portal and on SIMATIC S7-1500 CPU controller with an LCD display
  • Presentation and management with SIMATIC WinCC and TP700 Comfort Panel
  • Connecting PROFINET with a SINAMICS G120 drive
  • Training SIMATIC S7-1500 controller, TP700 Comfort Panel and SINAMICS G120

This is the advanced level of TIA PRO 1 course. Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to build control logic for more comprehensive and functionally more demanding processes and carry out more in-depth diagnostic measures.

  • Analogue signals processes
  • Functions, function blocks and multi-instance using the IEC timer as an example
  • Program jumps and operations on batteries
  • Indirect addressing
  • Use of organisational blocks (such as OB86) for error processing

  • Displaying and managing with SIMATIC WinCC and TP700 Comfort Panel
  • Practical exercises on SIMATIC S7-1500 controller, TP700 Comfort Panel and SINAMICS G120

The course includes work with composite data types, programming language SCL, communication between processing units, PID-regulations and step motor. The participants enhances their knowledge gained at TIA PRO 1 and TIA PRO 2 courses respectively.

  • Functional blocks with multi-instance way
  • Composite data types creation and use
  • Indirect addressing of complex data types
  • Integration of error processing functions
