Course: TD900 Siemens SIMATIC Step 7 - Introductory Programming
Students learn the design, functionality and, introductory programming of Siemens SIMATIC STEP 7 to optimize results of all phases of automation projects including an integrated simulator. This course begins with an overview of S7 navigation, functionality, and project structure. The course focus then progresses to creating a program in OB1 (Organizational Block) through ladder logic (LAD), statement lists (STL) or function block diagrams (FBD), and assigning symbols through absolute addresses. Programming exercises reinforce instruction on: applying binary logic, generating instance data blocks, adapting actual values, creating & opening functions, programming a multiple instance, creating & opening shared data blocks & higher-level function blocks, and configuring the distributed I/O with PROFIBUS DP. An overview of programming for speed monitoring, and to switch an engine on/off, then evaluating the diagnostic buffer, and testing programs with the variable table, and monitoring variables. Lastly, the course instructs on downloading to the programmable controller & debugging, configuring hardware and changing the node address. Students in this course also receive their own licensed diagnostic software, Siemens SIMATIC STEP 7 for Students.
"The information shared in class will be immediately useful on my job I feel much more prepared to modify existing programs and even to upgrade older systems to the S7 platform." Karona Inc.-- Duration: 5 days
