On line-Training Corso SIMATIC S7 Service 1 (ST-SERV1)

  • This first component of the SIMATIC S7-300/400 Service course teaches the basic knowledge of the design of automation systems, the configuration and parameterization of the hardware, handling with the SIMATIC STEP 7 V5.x software and the fundamentals of programming. You also get an overview ofSIMATIC HMI systems, PROFIBUS DP and the integration of drives SINAMICS. What you learn about the integrated factory automation will teach you to take a holistic view of your plant and to understand the relationships between components. On completion of the course, you will thus be able to diagnose simple hardware faults or replace modules, to coordinate components optimally, carry our safe fault diagnostics and thus reduce downtimes.


  • After attending the course, you can:
    • Commission a SIMATIC S7-300/400 PLC system
    • Replace SIMATIC S7-300/400 hardware modules
    • Diagnose and locate multiple hardware faults using module LEDs and SIMATIC STEP 7 V5.x diagnostic tools
    • Troubleshoot and resolve typical software failures using SIMATIC STEP 7 V5.x diagnostic tools
    • Understand, change, and expand small programs
    • Monitor, modify and force I/O
    • Backup and restore an S7 project
