The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with all automation devices – controller, HMI and drives. In this course you will learn about the major differences between SIMATIC S7-300/400 and SIMATIC S7-1500, the engineering tools SIMATIC Manager and TIA Portal, as well as STEP 7 V5.x and STEP 7 based on TIA Portal. You will learn the possibilities of the configuration and the advanced programming of a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system with the "TIA Portal" engineering platform. You can deepen your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a TIA system model. This consists of a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system, ET200 distributed I/O, Touchpanel, drive, and a conveyor model. After attending the course, you can: Efficiently use the "TIA Portal" engineering platform; Configure and program components of the SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system with the TIA Portal; Perform a commissioning of TIA components.
