TIA Portal Service II

Course Overview

This second part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal service training is based on the knowledge of the TIA Portal gained in the SIMATIC TIA Portal service 1 course, including SIMATIC STEP 7, HMI, connection of drives, and PROFINET IO / PROFIBUS. The participants will expand thier troubleshooting and error correction knowledge – using the TIA Portal diagnostic tool in the commissioning and productive phase. Alarms are displayed on an operator control and monitoring system. Participant will also learn about the included test functions for controlling programs in Structured Control Language (SCL). Also, will implement a sequence control in SIMATIC S7-GRAPH and integrate the analog value processing. Hence participants will be able to adapt his plant to new demands and to reduce downtime.

Participant Pre requirements

SIMATIC S7 knowledge equivalent to the Siemens TIA-Service I.

Training Objectives

Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to do the following:
• Understand the interaction of TIA components
• Understand, adapt, and expand given STEP 7 programs, including with step sequences and analog value processing
• Systematically diagnose and correct hardware and software errors in the SIMATIC S7 automation system with the diagnostic tools of the TIA Portal engineering portal
• Use the test functions in Structured Control Language (SCL)
• Perform specific commissioning of TIA components
• Adapt your WinCC configuration to new requirements through small modifications or extensions
