Description

This training programme is being hosted in conjunction with Engineers Ireland.

The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC. In this first part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal programming training, we teach you the handling of the TIA Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7 automation system, configuration and parameterization of hardware, and the basics of standard PLC programming.

You also receive an overview of HMI, PROFINET IO, and connecting drives. You can deepen your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a TIA system model. This consists of a SIMATIC S7 automation system, ET200 distributed I/O, Touchpanel, drive, and a belt model.

On completion of this course the participant will be able to do the following:

  • Understand the fundamentals of interaction of the TIA components
    Solve simple programming tasks using elementary STEP 7 instructions
  • Reliably operate the “TIA Portal” engineering platform
    Program simple plant functions with basic STEP 7 instructions predominantly in ladder diagram (LAD)
  • Perform simple commissioning of TIA components

Programme Agenda

Overview and significant performance characteristics of the SIMATIC S7 system family. The components of the TIA Portal:

  • STEP 7, WinCC, communication
  • Program execution in automation systems
  • STEP 7 block types and program structuring
  • Binary and digital operations
  • Programming of parameterisable blocks
  • Data management with data blocks
  • Programming organisational blocks.
  • Test tools for system information, troubleshooting and diagnostics.
  • Hardware configuration and parameterisation of the SIMATIC S7-1500 modules, a PROFINET IO system (ET-200SP), a Touch Panel (TP 700) and a Sinamics G120 drive over PROFINET
  • Program documentation and saving
  • Deeper understanding of contents through practical exercises on TIA system model
