Description

This training programme is being hosted in conjunction with Engineers Ireland.
 
This course is directed at personnel engaged in project engineering tasks who would like to become familiar with the complex programming possibilities of SIMATIC S7 (300/400) and who would like to reinforce and build on their knowledge from the previous programming courses. The course uses a ‘hands-on’ practical approach to reinforce the theoretical aspects of the training.

Programme Agenda

  • Functions, function blocks and multi-instances (with the example of an execution line)
  • Creating and applying complex data structures
  • Indirect addressing and address register instructions
  • Parameter passing using complex data
  • Error handling for Synchronous and Asynchronous Errors
  • Administration of a recipe database with HMI
  • MPI Global Data Communications
  • MPI Communications using SFC’s
  • S7 Communication via SFB
  • Introduction to Industrial Ethernet
  • Introduction to Profinet
  • Each of the above topic areas are backed up by practical exercises using a system model, consisting of the S7- 300 automation system, the ET200S distributed peripheral, an HMI touch panel, the MM420 drive and a conveyor model. Working examples are provided and tested out during the course.
