Advanced PLC Training System (Siemens)



Programming a PLC efficiently requires a strong familiarity with the specifics of the programming environment and languages. This is exactly the purpose of the Advanced PLC Training System with high-end products from Siemens.

This training system allows students to acquire hands-on experience with industrial control equipment. Realistic examples are used to motivate students. These examples are displayed on the graphic terminal, and correspond to real PLC applications that can be interfaced with the trainer.

The system comprises industrial components of the latest technology: a Siemens S7-1200 controller, a 7" widescreen TP700 Comfort Panel with PROFINET, MPI/PROFIBUS DP, and USB interfaces, and a SCALANCE XB005 unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch. Several inputs (16 digital inputs, including 6 high-speed counters, and 4 universal analog inputs) and outputs (14 digital outputs, including 4 high-speed outputs, and 2 configurable analog outputs) are accessible from the front panel using 2-mm test leads. Controls and lights can also be connected. Eight switches allow the addition of electrical faults during troubleshooting exercises. A SysLink interface allows connection to Modular Production System (MPS) stations from Festo.

The system also comprises a one-seat license of the SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal) Engineering Software.
