  1. Process Control (PCS7)
  2. ST-PCS7ASE - Description

PCS7 Advanced AS Engineering V8.0 (ST-PCS7ASE)

  • As SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineer you will learn in this course the potential of the SIMATIC PCS 7-process control software with focus on AS-Engineering. As important topics for advanced PCS 7 Engineers the Advanced Process Library (APL), the configuration of SFC-Types, as well as principles and methods supporting an efficient AS-Engineering are in the center of the course. By practical exercises at training equipment you will put your newly acquired theoretical knowledge into the practice. Through this you increase your learning success. On completion of the course, you are able to engineer a process automation optimally and efficiently.
