TIA- Portal Programming – Part 2 (TIA-PRO2)

SIMATIC S7 Programming

Duration:  5 Days

Pre-requisite:  Successful completion of PRO1

Aims and Objectives:

The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC.  The second part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal programming training is based on the knowledge of the TIA Portal gained in the SIMATIC S7 TIA Portal programming 1 course, including STEP 7,

SIMATIC S7, HMI, connection of drives, and PROFINET IO. You will expand your knowledge of complex operations in statement lists (STL) and in Structured Control Language (SCL). Along with analog value processing and data administration with complex data types, the evaluation and handling of program-related errors are also considered. Building on this, you will learn how to display messages on the operator control and monitoring system (HMI). Thanks to the knowledge imparted, you will gain new impetus and ideas for efficient PLC programming.  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 will be able to do the following:

•Understand the interaction of TIA components
•Apply classical program development methods
•Solve comprehensive programming tasks
•Program advanced functions such as indirect addressing in STEP 7 statement lists (STL) and in
•Structured Control Language (SCL)
•Implement data administration with the SIMATIC S7 automation system
•Apply system blocks along with blocks from the standard STEP 7 library
•Program classical software error handling and evaluation
•Configure alarms of the operator control and monitoring system (HMI)
•Configure TIA system components consisting of SIMATIC S7, HMI, PROFINET IO, and drive

This blended learning course combines web-based training on the Internet with a 5-day attendance course: To prepare for the classroom course, you will receive the web-based training course (WBT) "PROFINET". This allows you to improve your personal learning achievement in the attendance course.
