This course introduces design and programming methods for large-scale distributed control systems. The focus is on modular program elements with defined interfaces and communication protocols between function blocks.
The course covers:
• State diagrams
• State machines
• Applying object-oriented concepts
• Programming in Structured Text language
• Function block data interfaces and connections
• Multi-element variables
• HMI VB script
• CPU to CPU communication.
This course is suitable for varying backgrounds ranging from intermediate to advanced practitioners wanting to extend their experience with object-oriented solutions.
The following software and hardware are used;
• Siemens TIA Portal V15 and SIMATIC S7-1500 controller with CPU1516 3PN/DP.
At the end of this course, participants will able to apply object-oriented concepts to the design, implementation and maintenance of distributed systems.
All participants should have completed Programmable Logic Control and Automation Short Course 3 or have equivalent experience.
All relevant course materials are included.
Pen/pencil and notebook.
A certificate of recognition will be awarded upon successful completion of this course.
