DCS - Siemens PCS7 Programming

Training Introduction

Process Object View, Process Tag Types, OS Project Editor, CFC, OS Server, OS Client. These are all PCS7 terms and are only part of the entire range. PCS7 is an extremely extensive automation platform. The fundament of PCS7 consists of various components, modules, interfaces and technologies. Its wide variety of possibilities makes it difficult to choose, and thus an insight into PCS7 is required to enable customers to make the right choices within the PCS7 system.

Training Target Group

This training is intended for beginning PCS7 engineers, who should be able to implement a PSC7 application based on an existing system design

Training (Pre) Knowledge

To take part in this course, participants need to have experience with industrial control systems and with development of PLC and SCADA applications. In addition, students should have good basic skills with the MS Windows environment.

Training Global Contents

The PCS7 training is based on its components and technologies. Students will learn to identify these components, its limitations and the possibilities to combine them into a working application that answers to the desired system functionality and quality requirements. You will actually learn how to create objects yourself!

Training Methods

Our objective is to teach students various skills, working through a similar cycle with every individual area of competence. The training will focus on system orientation prior to the actual components, competence training and most occurring issues. The students' PCS7 skills will be taught by performing exercises and will be assessed by the trainer.

Training Specific Contents

  • System overview and architecture. (operate, communicate & engineering)
  • Identification of components and interfaces, mapping out limitations and parameters. The course covers both the field-interface as HMI-interface.
  • Configuration of the essential components: Automation station (AS), Operating station (OS) and Engineering station (ES) and networking Ethernet and Profibus (PA).
  • Component Standardisation and how to use the Master library.
  • Using CFC and SFC as an automation solution.
  • Performing diagnostics of a PCS7 application by using the available tools to their full extent.
  • How to perform a multi-project during implementation (distributed engineering) and how to make important strategic decisions during implementation.
