SIMATIC S7 PLC Programming - Basic Level based on S7-1500

Course Objectives

SIMATIC S7 PLC Programming - Basic Level based on S7-1500

Course Methodology

The course is hands on with great emphasis on the practical aspects of Programmable Logic Controller applications. The course is based around Siemens S7-1500 range of PLCs using TIA Portal.

Course Objectives

The course objectives are to provide the participants with the knowledge and skills to enable them to work with Siemens S7 (1500 / 1200 controller series).

On completion of this course the participant will be able to 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 predominantly in ladder diagram (LAD)
  • Perform simple commissioning of TIA components
  • Monitoring PLC software using Code or Variable Tables
  • Forcing Variables
