Excellent starting point for working with the TIA portal, the comprehensive software solution for programming SIMATIC Controllers, and S7-1500/1200 CPUs.
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC.
In this first part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal programming training, we teach you the handling of the TIA Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7 automation system, configuration and parameterization of hardware, and the basics of standard PLC programming. You also receive an overview of HMI, PROFINET IO, and connecting drives.
After attending the course, you can do the following:
Understand the fundamentals of interaction of the TIA components
Solve simple programming tasks using elementary STEP 7 instructions
Reliably operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform
Program simple plant functions with basic STEP 7 instructions in the ladder
diagram (LAD) or function block diagram (FBD)
Perform simple commissioning of TIA components
Overview and significant performance characteristics of the SIMATIC S7 system family
The components of the TIA Portal: STEP 7, WinCC, Startdrive
Program execution in automation systems
S7 block types and program structuring
Binary and digital operations (FBD/LAD)
Programming of parameterizable blocks
Data management with data blocks
Programming organization blocks
Test tools for system information, troubleshooting, and diagnostics
Hardware configuration and parameterization of the SIMATIC S7 modules, a PROFINET IO system (ET-200), a Touch Panel, and a drive
Program Cycle, Process Image and Proces Image Partition
Explanation and usage of different organization blocks
