Online-Training - SIMATIC PCS 7 AS Engineering (ST-PCS7ASE)

  • In this online training, SIMATIC PCS 7 users will become familiar with the possibilities of the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control software with an emphasis on the AS.


  • In this course, SIMATIC PCS 7 users will become familiar with the possibilities of the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control software with an emphasis on the AS.
  • The focus is on application of the various type/instance concepts in SIMATIC PCS 7, which support efficient AS engineering, including working with process tag types and control module types, application of SFC types and technological engineering with equipment modules and equipment phases. With the help of SIMATIC PCS 7 Logic Matrix, you will create complex interlock functions in your user program quickly and easily.
  • Through practical exercises on training devices, which are handled the same as in real-world use, you will put your newly acquired theoretical knowledge into practice. This will increase your learning success.
  • After the course, you will be able to optimally and efficiently configure process automation.
