You will reinforce your theoretical knowledge through numerous practical exercises on a SIMATIC plant model. This comprises an S7-300 automation system, ET200S distributed I/O, TP 177B Touch Panel, Micromaster 420 drive and a conveyor model.
The second component of the SIMATIC Service course is linked to the first basic course with regard to STEP7, human machine interfacing, drive components and PROFIBUS DP, and it expands this in the direction of troubleshooting. The course focuses on fault correction, software troubleshooting and program adaptations.
What you learn about the integrated factory automation will teach you to take a holistic view of your plant and to understand the relationship between the individual components. This will enable you on completion of the course to pinpoint faults and correct them systematically and quickly. This will increase the productivity of the machine since standstill times are thus reduced. You will be able to adapt your system to new conditions through small program changes and expansions.
