SIMATIC S5 System Handling and Troubleshooting - Learning Objectives You Achieve...

Recommissioning of the system after a malfunction

Participants are taught how to react in the event of a malfunction. You will learn the necessary steps for recommissioning and perform them yourself on a virtual test system.

Troubleshooting with the Programming Device

Correct handling of the programming device is one of the key topics. Participants learn the correct program settings and how messages are analyzed.

Special Functions Application/Programming

Special functions are an integral part of the CPU firmware of S5 controllers. Globally, they are used in most STEP5 programs. The participants get to know their possibilities.

Programming of Function Blocks

Participants learn how to program and create functions using practical examples. For a good learning success, the exercise programs are checked by each participant at the test facilities.

System Configuration and Parameterization in the DB

In addition to programming, important system configurations must also be carried out to ensure that the control functions correctly and safely. Important information of the configuration data component is explained in this topic.

(E)EPROM Programming

Data storage is another big topic. The participants will learn how to use storage media correctly and has to accomplish data backups.

Profibus Communication - Basics of Network Technology

Bus technology has established itself with the S5 systems of the 1990s. The participants get an overview of the system communication possibilities and get to know the programming of an operator panel.

Processing of Realistic Malfunctions of Hardware and Software

The participants train their skills within a virtual S5 system, analyse fault patterns, take measures to eliminate faults in hardware and software and carry out the recommissioning.
