TIA Portal Programming - Part 1 (TIA-PRO1)

SIMATIC S7 Programming

Date: 30 Oct-03 Nov

Course Fee: R17,970 excl VAT; R20,485.80 incl VAT

Duration: 5 Days

Target Group:

  • Programmers
  • Commissioning engineers, configuring engineers

Pre-Requisites: Basic knowledge of automation technology

Aims & Objectives:

  • 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.
  • After attending the course, you can 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 in the ladder
  • diagram (LAD) or function block diagram (FBD)
  • Perform simple commissioning of TIA components
  • This blended learning course combines web-based training on the Internet with a 5-day
  • attendance course: To prepare for the attendance course, you will receive the web-based training
  • course (WBT) "PLC Knowledge for Beginners" and "SIMATIC TIA Portal Structured
  • Programming". This allows you to improve your personal learning achievement in the attendance
  • course.
