Distributed Safety (ST-PPDS)

Configuring and Programming with Distributed Safety

Duration: 2 Days


Basic knowledge of SIMATIC S7 according to the courses ST-SERV2 or ST-PRO1

Aims and Objectives:

With Safety Integrated, we provide the intelligent solution to the ever-increasing demand for functional safety in machines and plants. Safety Integrated provides comprehensive and integrated solutions for the manufacturing and process industry, and it reliably protects people, machines and the environment, while fulfilling current and future efficiency and flexibility requirements.

In this course, you will learn about configuring, programming, starting up, diagnosing and troubleshooting of the failsafe CPUs of the SIMATIC 300. These include the failsafe CPUs of the SIMATIC 300 and the failsafe ET200 systems. The course provides an introduction to the creation of safety-related programs in the programming languages   F-FBD and F-LAD.

Course content

  • Overview of European safety regulations and standards
  • S7-300F (principle, system configuration and I/O)
  • Configuring of the failsafe I/O with Distributed Safety
  • Programming of a safety-related user program
  • Failsafe communication over PROFIsafe (CPU-CPU communication)
  • Diagnostics facilities (CPU diagnostics, I/O diagnostics, advanced diagnostics)
  • Exercises for I/O configuration, communication, troubleshooting
  • Programming examples (emergency stop, protective door, safety-related shutdown, passivation, special programming features)
  • Deeper understanding of contents through practical exercises on the SIMATIC S7-300 system


Additional Comments:

In this course you will work with the SIMATIC STEP 7 V5.5 software. You will put your theoretical knowledge to use in practical exercises.
