The TIA Portal Software Development, Part II training class is second in a two part series.

This 4-day, instructor-led training course builds basic programming skills with Siemens STEP7 software.

Using the power of Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) to integrate PLC, HMI and Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) control, students will learn structure programming and implement functions and function blocks.
This is a remote, online course that will use a VFD and Motor to implement the labs. Software diagnostics tools will also be taught and will be used to debug both hardware and PLC programming.

All equipment is provided and will be hand delivered to you prior to the scheduled training date.
