In this online training you will become familiar with the system concept and the general system structure of SIMATIC PCS neo. The course is aimed at experienced users of SIMATIC PCS 7 who already have basic knowledge of the APL or the Control Module Types.
In this online training, a real training equipment is available with the help of a secure remote access. You can follow the live presentations of our specialist speakers from your usual learning environment (workplace or home office), ask questions and access the training equipment to apply your new knowledge directly in practical exercises.
With the help of descriptive course documentation , you will become familiar with the system concept and the general system structure of SIMATIC PCS neo.
You will configure the automation hardware including the distributed I/O with digital and analog signals in SIMATIC 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.
The course content is designed to familiarize you with flexible workflow options. After completing the training, you will be able to create, operate and test a simple yet technically correct and functional SIMATIC PCS neo project.
