Online / Remote training course: 4 Days (6 hours per day)


Process control engineers, Advanced process control engineers, Instrument engineers, and DCS / PLC technicians.

Training course description:

This process control training course is designed to cover all basics and advanced functions of SIEMENS PCS7. Trainees need to have some PLC programming experience as covered in the training course.

All basic and advanced functions necessary to create a complete PLC control logic using function blocks and/or ladder logic will be explained and demonstrated.

Using the Siemens PCS7 software, the trainees will learn how to configure PCS7 and design the visualization system (HMI or SCADA) predominantly WinCC. They will learn how to build tags, design PID and cascade control loops, build and test advanced process control loops and logic, create bumpless transfer in PCS7 and batch control system using Simatic Batch Control center.

Also, the trainees will learn how to build graphics, alarms, trends, and logs within WinCC. All designed functionalities will be demonstrated using simulators and runtime emulators.

The goal of this process control training course is to teach and demonstrate how to build all process control logic inside PCS7.  Moreover, this process control training course will give you knowledge and experience to build a visualization system in WinCC.
