TIA-WCCS (WinCC for TIA Portal )


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

Duration: 5 Days


Successful completion of the TIA-SYSUP or the TIA-SERV1

Aims and Objectives:

The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) provides the working environment for end-to-end engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC.

The SCADA functionality (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) of WinCC is designed for visualization and operation of processes, manufacturing cycles, machines and plants.

The course is based on the possibilities of WinCC SCADA in TIA Portal at the time.

You will learn how to create the required interface. You will also be shown how to log messages and values and how to design and implement the appropriate logs.

After learning how to use the system safely, you can use the engineering phase effectively.

The course content is supported by a host of practical exercises on a system model.

This comprises the SIMATIC S7 programmable controller (PLC) and different human machine interfacing (HMI) stations.
