Programmable Logic Control Using Siemens


PLC Training is also designed to help delegates keep abreast of the latest Siemens’s PLC technologies and techniques available in this area, this tutorial offers an excellent opportunity for delegates to ask specific questions and exchange ideas relating to their own applications.


This section will begin with a discussion of basic theory of operation and how it is used to control a process. It will also identify potential applications and relate how PLC control compares with traditional methods of control. A discussion of the benefits of PLC control will follow.

Hardware Configuration
This section will describe the various components used in the formulation of a PLC control system for Siemens S7-400. Included will be methods to select the correct features and capabilities to match the process requirements.
• CPU sizes and types
• Backplanes
• Power supplies
• I/O module types

Installation and Wiring Considerations
There are necessary steps that must be taken to ensure that the control system will be correctly installed to provide safe and reliable operation. Installation recommendations and techniques will be given for the following:
• Power and grounding
• Enclosures
• Input devices and wiring methods
• Output devices and wiring methods

This section will discuss the methods used and preparations that should be made to guarantee a smooth and trouble free system start-up.

Safety Issues and Techniques
This section will define the major safety issues relating to control systems. A number of techniques will be discussed to address these issues including:
• Solid state switching
• E-Stops
• Power-up delays
• Equipment re-starting
• Watchdog circuits
• MCR circuits

PLC Numbering Systems
PLC control system hardware and software use alternate numbering systems. The delegate will be exposed to the different base systems and how to convert to and from the decimal format.

Programming Siemens S7-400
The delegates will be instructed in the commands and logic necessary to assemble a basic PLC program to control an industrial process. The delegate will perform a simple programming exercise.

Interactive Discussion
This will be an opportunity for delegates to interact and trade relevant stories and experiences.

Programming Software
Various types of programming software will be introduced to the delegates. Techniques for simple program development and downloading will be demonstrated. Topics will include:
• Program functions
• Program keying and development
• Connecting to the PLC
• Set-up
• Program downloading
• Monitoring and diagnostics
Hardware will be available so that the delegate can get some hands on experience programming and downloading.

Structured Programming
The concept of structured and block programming will be explained. Methods and techniques will be described which can be used to organize and standardize PLC programs so that they can be easily understood.

Documentation Strategies
The various types of documentation required for effective installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting will be reviewed.

Programmable Logic Controller Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting a Programmable Logic Controller-based control system has its challenges and advantages. The necessary tools and techniques required to perform this will be covered. The use of programming software to monitor and diagnose process and hardware problems will be demonstrated.

Operator Interfaces
The various types of operator interfaces and how they can be used to enhance the control and diagnostic abilities of the Programmable Logic Controller will be discussed.

Data Acquisition
Methods of collecting and storing process data using the PLC s7-400 and peripheral computer stations will be described. Advanced data representation, graphics, and calculations using the computer to enhance the adaptive control capability of the Programmable Logic Controller based system will also be covered.

This section will discuss the methods used and preparations that should be made to guarantee a smooth and troublefree system start-up.
