  3. NEO-BASIC - Description

SIMATIC PCS neo Systemtraining für Einsteiger (NEO-BASIC)

  • With the help of descriptive course documentation you will become familiar with the system concept and the general system structure of SIMATIC PCS neo.

    Also available as online-training


  • You will configure the automation hardware including the distributed I/O with digital and analog signals in PCS neo and test the function in a real training device. In so doing, you will become familiar with the functionality for processing digital and analog signals in PCS neo. In addition, you will configure an imaginary model system step-by-step and commission it virtually. You will learn how to handle the PCS neo engineering tools including SIMIT and the virtual controller on the basis of examples and practical exercises. After completing the training, you will be able to create, operate and test a simple yet technically correct and functional SIMATIC PCS neo project.
