PCS 7 AS-Engineering (ST-PCS7AS.)

  • PCS 7 AS-Engineering


  • • 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 SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineers the integration of Profinet in SIMATIC PCS 7, the Advanced Process Library (APL), the configuration of SFC-Types, as well as Type-Instance conceptions 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.
