The course is aimed at personnel whose activities focus on the service and maintenance of plants with PCS7 control systems. The emphasis here is on the process-level components AS, I/O systems and system bus. The handling skills required in day-to-day practice for diagnosing and correcting faults are practiced on training equipment and in typical projects. Equipped with the knowledge of the integrated nature of the system, you will be able on completion of the course to quickly diagnose and correct faults and to remove possible fault sources in advance. This enables you to reduce standstill times and increase the efficiency of your automation system.
