SIMATIC S7-1200 basic course (TIA-MICRO1)

Short Description

  • You can deepen your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a TIA system model. This consists of a SIMATIC S7-1200 automation system, a Touchpanel, and a belt model.

Objectives

  • The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) for SIMATIC S7-1200 forms the work environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic and SIMATIC WinCC Basic.
  • In this first part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal S7-1200 training, we teach you the handling of the TIA Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7-1200 automation system, configuration and parameterization of hardware, and the basics of programming. You will learn how to clear simple hardware faults and software errors in the SIMATIC S7-1200 automation system and to create, modify and expand small STEP 7 programs. You will thus be capable of reducing downtime. You will also get an overview on operator control and monitoring.
  • After attending the course, you can do the following:
    • Understand the fundamentals of the interaction of the SIMATIC S7-1200 with an operator control and monitoring device.
    • Reliably operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform
    • Create, change, and expand small STEP 7 programs
    • Configure, parameterize, and exchange SIMATIC S7-1200 modules
    • Diagnose and fix simple hardware faults using the wiring test
    • Diagnose and fix simple program errors using the status block
    • Perform simple commissioning of the SIMATIC S7-1200
Type Face-to-face training
Duration 3 days
