Online-Training - SIMATIC PCS neo System Training for Beginners (NEO-BASIC)

  • In this online course in a virtual classroom you will learn how to implement the diversity of engineering possibilities with the new process control system SIMATIC PCS neo in a structured and efficient way. With the help of descriptive course documentation as a online training you will become familiar with the system concept and the general system structure of SIMATIC PCS neo.


  • In this online training you have access to real training equipment with the help of a secure remote access. You will configure the automation hardware including the distributed I/O with digital and analog signals in PCS neo and test the function in a real training device. In so doing, you will become familiar with the functionality for processing digital and analog signals in PCS neo.

  • In addition, you will configure an imaginary model system step-by-step and commission it virtually. You will learn how to handle the PCS neo engineering tools including SIMIT and the virtual controller on the basis of examples and practical exercises.

  • After completing the training, you will be able to create, operate and test a simple yet technically correct and functional SIMATIC PCS neo project.
