S7 Automation Maintenance 1

Who should attend:
This course is the first of a two part series designed for maintainers and “first responders” to Siemens S7 automated control systems. Maintenance technicians, electricians, supervisors and others, who need to develop active skills using their Siemens Hardware system, should attend this course to maximize line uptime. This course also provides a great platform for those new to automation systems and state-of-the-art industrial electronics.

Prerequisites:

2.9 CEUs (Continuing Education Units)

PRICE:  $2,800.00

Automation Maintenance 1 is a new course designed using Performance-Based Learning strategy which adopts current Adult Learning and Development standards and practices.

The result is a course with well-defined performancebased learning objectives that emphasizes task-based assessments of student performance. To successfully complete each module in the course, a student must demonstrate his/her ability to perform a specific automation task demonstrating the application of automation knowledge and skills.

Brief instructor led discussions followed by numerous hands-on exercises using a Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) plant model develop and reinforce practical experience. The TIA plant model consists of an S7-300 automation system, ET200S distributed I/O station, SIMATIC HMI Touch Panel, and a working conveyor model.

Students perform visual and multi-meter wire checks, hardware component diagnostics and troubleshooting as well as equipment replacement and restoring a failed PLC system to a normal operating state. Upon completion of the course, maintenance technicians should be able to establish communications to a Siemens PLC system, diagnose, troubleshoot, and restore basic faults on an S7 hardware system, reducing costly downtimes. This course offers 60% hands-on lab time and 40% lecture/discussion/Q and A.

Modular in design, this course is fully customizable for those interested in on-site training. Topics are designed for adjustments to meet plant specific needs. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details.

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

  • Use a Siemens PG or laptop PC to communicate with an S7 PLC system
  • Commission a PLC system:
    • Main station
    • Remote station
    • HMI
    • Conveyor
  • Examine and complete wiring diagrams for S7300 I/O modules
  • Using a Multimeter, wire check S7300 main station and ET200S remote PROFIBUS station I/O modules
  • Replace S7 hardware modules, update the hardware configuration and download changes to the PLC
  • Diagnose and locate multiple hardware faults using module LEDs & STEP 7 diagnostic tools
  • Troubleshoot various basic hardware station faults, module failures, communication faults and restore system operation to a running state
  • Wire PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET (RJ45) connectors with corresponding cables
  • Diagnose and troubleshoot instructor-set mystery faults with and without Organization Blocks loaded in the CPU
  • Monitor the control logic for a PLC conveyor system making light modifications and simple code debugging
  • Monitor, Modify and Force I/O
  • Backup and restore an S7 project
  • Complete an end-of-week comprehensive student project to reinforce and demonstrate learned skills
