Learn the major differences between the engineering tools SIMATIC Manager and TIA Portal and the S7-300/400 and SIMATIC S7-1500 CPUs
Become familiar with the possibilities of the configuration and the advanced programming of a S7-1500
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with all automation devices – controller, HMI and drives.
In this course you will learn about the major differences between SIMATIC S7-300/400 and SIMATIC S7-1500, the engineering tools SIMATIC Manager and TIA Portal, as well as STEP 7 V5.x and STEP 7 based on TIA Portal. You will learn the possibilities of the configuration and the advanced programming of a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system with the "TIA Portal" engineering platform.
