Course Overview

This course teaches the necessary S7 system concept, hardware configuration and parameterization, S7 software (SIMATIC TIA Portal) essentials, and an overview of programming fundamentals. Human Machine Interface (HMI) and SCADA are also included.

Numerous hands-on activities and exercises using a Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) plant model reinforce practical experience and theoretical knowledge. The TIA plant model consists of an S7-1500 automation system, SIMATIC Comfort Panel, and SCADA PLC.

Participants experience and learn TIA concepts and gain an understanding of the relationships between key industrial automation components. Upon course completion, participants are able to utilize STEP 7 tools, and techniques in order to recognize, diagnose, and remedy control system faults, reducing costly downtimes.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the consciousness of knowing the extended for the experience of SIMATIC S7 (300/400) with the possibility to work with Human Machine Interface (HMI) and SCADA and creating a new project with professional skills.
