The course content is supported by a host of practical exercises on a system model. This comprises the SIMATIC S7-1500 programmable controller (PLC) and different human machine interfacing (HMI) stations.
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) provides the working environment for end-to-end engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC.
The SCADA functionality (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) of WinCC is designed for visualization and operation of processes, manufacturing cycles, machines and plants. The course is based on the possibilities of WinCC SCADA in TIA Portal at the time. You will learn how to create and dynamize the required interface. You will also be shown how to log messages and values and how to design and implement the appropriate logs. After learning how to use the system safely, you can use the engineering phase effectively.
After attending the course, you can do the following:
Use SIMATIC WinCC efficiently and reliably on the basis of the "TIA Portal" engineering platform
Understand and edit SIMATIC WinCC projects for use in the SCADA area
Optimally structure the user interface
Implement logging concepts for messages, alarms and measured values
Selectively access values in the SIMATIC S7 and display and further process these values in the HMI system
System overview TIA Portal, SIMATIC WinCC (SCADA)
Creating a SIMATIC WinCC project
Configuring the connection to the SIMATIC S7 automation system
Structuring the operator interface
Fundamentals of creating graphics displays for human machine interfacing
