TIA Portal Programming - Part 1 (TIA-PRO1.)

  • TIA Portal Programming


  • 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.
  • You can deepen your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a TIA system
  • model. This consists of a SIMATIC S7 automation system, ET200 distributed I/O, Touchpanel,
  • drive, and a belt model.
  • 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
