  1. ST-PCS7LIB - Description

Introduction of the technologic libraries in SIMATIC PCS 7 (ST-PCS7LIB)


  • As a user of SIMATIC PCS 7, you will learn how to use the current versions of Advanced Process Library (APL) and Industry Library (IL) and learn about the advantages of these technology libraries as you do so.
  • In numerous practical exercises, you will learn how to solve basic automation tasks using the technology libraries.
  • After attending the course, you will be able to:
    • Configure basic technology functions with the Advanced Process Library.
    • Integrate frequency-controlled drives into a PCS 7 project with a standard APL block.
    • Configure dosing functions with the APL.
    • Optimize PID controllers configured with the APL.
    • Configure selected technology functions with the PCS 7 Industry Library.
    • Integrate graphical objects of the APG (Advanced Process Graphics) Library into your project.
