This course is the first in a 2 part series which builds basic programming skills with Siemens STEP7 software.

Using the power of TIA Portal to integrate PLC, HMI and VFD control, students will learn structure programming and implement functions and function blocks. This is a hands on course that will use a VFD and Motor to implement the labs. Software diagnostics tools will also be taught that will be used to debug both hardware and PLC programming.

Upon completion of this course, the student shall be able to:

  • Implement a design using Functions/Function Blocks/Data Blocks
  • Troubleshoot a structured STEP7 program
  • Use symbolic addressing
  • Implement HMI in design
  • Motor control using VFD
  • Communicate between PLCs
  • Data logging at HMI
