TIA Portal Distributed Safety (TIA-PPDS)

Duration: 3 Days


To attend this course, participants MUST have attended the Siemens Sitrain TIA-SERV1 and TIA-SERV2 or TIA-PRO1 and TIA-PRO2 courses.

Short Description:

The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC. In this course, you will learn about configuring, programming, starting up, diagnosing and troubleshooting of the failsafe CPUs of the SIMATIC S7 Safety PLC (no H systems) and the failsafe distributed ET200 systems.

You will apply your theoretical knowledge thorough numerous practical examples carried out on our state-of-the art SIMATIC S7-1500F training system.


Aims and Objectives:

After attending the course, participants should be able to do the following:-

  • Starting up failsafe CPUs of the SIMATIC PLC
  • Programming of safety-related programs in the languages F-FBD and F-LAD
  • Diagnosing and troubleshooting of safety-related programs.

Course Content:

  • Overview and guidelines
  • AS S7 Safety (principle, system configuration and I/O)
  • Configuring of the failsafe I/O with STEP 7 Safety Advanced
  • Programming of a safety-related user program
  • Failsafe communication PROFIsafe (CPU-CPU communication, master-slave 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, feedback monitoring, etc.)
  • Deeper understanding of contents through practical exercises on the SIMATIC S7-1500F system

In this course you will work with the SIMATIC STEP 7 software based on TIA Portal and SIMATIC S7-1500F hardware.

Target Group:

  • Programmers
  • Commissioning engineers
  • Engineering personnel
