S5 / S7 PLC Training - Step 5 / Step 7 Training Classes

In the US and other sites around the world we provide On-Site S5 and S7 Programming Training Classes.

The training class will focus on Maintenance Tasks and Expanded PLC Programming using the
S5 /S7 for Windows® or the Siemens STEP 7 programming system.

For the training purposes a software PLC will be installed on each computer (IBHsoftec S5 or S7 SoftPLC). A visualization system (In-Touch® by Wonderware®) will also be installed to simulate the inputs and outputs of PLC data (switches, lamps etc.). The instructor will need Administration rights to be able install the required Software.

Customers Responsibility’s

The customer will be expected to provide a class room equipped with an overhead projector and a "Beamer" for presentations and demonstrations. Each student should have a PC to use during the training class equipped with Windows (exact operating system on request).

5 Days of On-Site training provided by Trans Tech International. Training Class Materials for each student will be provided.
  
Pricing:  on request

STEP 5 Expanded Training with S5 for Windows®, 5 Days

Target Group:

The training is tailored for employees responsible for maintenance of S5 PLC’s on the shop floor. Basic skills in the STEP 5 programming language will be taught to enable an employee to analyze and find S5 PLC related problems, correct existing programs or generate new PLC programs. The participants will learn the layout and function of Simatic S5 PLC. They will configure and start up an S5 PLC. They will become familiar with the standardized PLC structure and corresponding programs. They will recognize the differences between the various block types and program designs. They will be able to diagnosis quickly and implement fixes as needed. All these skills will be reinforced by programming exercises.

Requirements:

Basic knowledge of a PC and automation systems.

Topics covered:

•   S5 for Windows® System Overview.
•   PLC program structure using STEP 5.
•   S5 for Windows® Tools to generate, troubleshoot and to test PLC Programs.
•   S5 for Windows® Online functions.
•   Data Blocks and Data Types; Function Blocks.
•   Indirect addressing; Substitution Statements.
•   Analog value processing.

Exercises to reinforce what is learned will be available for each subject. The workstations (PC) provieded by the customer can be equipped with the required software. In addition to the programming software S5 for Windows® a Software PLC, (compatible to the S5 CPU 945) is installed as a training tool to be programmed with the STEP 5 language. To display and manipulate the data from the Software PLC (lights, switches, etc.) the visualization software “In-Touch® by Wonderware®” is installed.
Extensive course documentation is given out to the participant.
