This course is for PCS7 project managers, configuration engineers, programmers, commissioning personnel, and technologists who wish to learn how to implement the diversity of engineering possibilities in a structured and efficient way with SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system.
Upon completion of this course, the student shall be able to:-
Create a proper PCS 7 multiproject and configure the hardware of AS and PC stations
Create user programs compliant to PCS 7 standards using the most important tools like CFC, SFC and graphical tools of the PCS 7 engineering toolset
Bulk engineering using the Import/Export-Assistant
By doing exercises on original SIMATIC PCS 7 training units, you will implement software for the process automation of a plant right up to the HMI level. Features of SIMATIC PCS 7 such as integration of all subsystems, plant-oriented engineering, data management and project management are supplemented by advanced functions that enable efficient and cost-effective engineering.
Utilise the benefits of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) for yourself and learn how to get an integrated view of your plant! Because of this integration you will be able to diagnose faults quickly and correct them with safety. In addition, projects can be created in advance in such a way that you can work with multiple application. This enables time-optimized and cost-effective engineering.
The course is structured as follows:-
System design and component specification
Station and network configuration
Connection to the process
Basics control functions
Basics Operating and Monitoring
Implementation of Automatic and Manual Mode Control
Configuration of the control flow in the SFC
Customising the OS
Locking functions and operating modes
Mass data engineering
PCS 7 Documentation and Support
The ability to use a MS Windows PC (2000/XP), keyboard and mouse to include opening and closing programs, locating files, copy and paste objects /data (text, etc). Drag and drop files, objects/data (text, etc). Use of menus and multi-menus, manipulation of windows within a multi-window environment. Use of MS Windows Help.
Basic knowledge of electrical engineering, control and feedback control systems and process control engineering.
Each of the above topic areas are backed up by practical 'hands on' exercises using PCS 7 training workstation.
