PLC: Siemens Step 7
w/ Simatic Manager V 5.5

$1999

Hands-On

4 Days

3.2 CEU

At the end of this seminar students will be able to:

  1. Program instructions into functions and call functions from other sources.
  2. Archive and restore Siemens Step7 programs.
  3. File save up-load and download.
  4. Troubleshoot Siemens Step7 programs.
  5. Have a basic understanding of TIA Portal & S71200
  • Why You should take this seminar

    Siemens has very different programming and functioning from other PLCs. Focus on the fundamentals of Siemens S7-300 PLC from setting up communications to programming, uploading and downloading programs to troubleshooting and modifying the system.

    Participants will spend 80% of their time engaged in hands-on learning during this training. Using a computer and an acutal Siemens PLC, you will run the Simatic Step 7 software to configure, program and troubleshoot ladder and faults to solve elementary and complex problems.

  • Who Should Take This Seminar

    This training is beneficial for anyone who encounters systems PLCs using Siemens including Maintenance Technicians, Operators, Engineers, Electricians and Supervisors and management personnel.

    People who would benefit from this training include:

    • Maintenance Managers
    • Instrument Technicians
    • Maintenance Technicians & Supervisors
    • Operators
    • Automation Technicians
    • Multi-craft personnel
    • Anyone who needs cross-training on Siemens PLCs
    • Anyone who needs to gain familiarity of 1200 TIA Portal

    NOTE: No pre-requisites are required to attend this training

  • What You'll Learn

    Each participant will program the PLC to provide real-time diagnostics that pinpoints possible issues using the search function, reference data, systems menus, and forces. You will practice programming and troubleshoot ladder logic on a programming examples and animated industrial simulations.

    Topics covered during this training include:

    • Step 7 Simatic Manager  (understand the program layout, navigation, and functionality)
    • Project Configuration (making the PLC do something specific for a specific task or piece of equipment)
    • Backup Archiving
    • Downloading a project to “back it up”
    • Upload a project to “restore” the program
    • Controller Communication
    • Ladder Programming
    • Function Block Diagram Programming
    • Statement List Programming (a European language)
    • Project Configuration of installed input and output modules
    • Creating Tags, Comments, and Symbols
    • Troubleshoot system faults
    • Overview of TIA Portal w/ Step 7 1200

    All of this together will enable workers to convert a relay logic schematic to ladder and have it operate per schematic.
