Description

Using the Siemens S7 Simulation program PLCSIM, this course continues on from the Level 2 course with the introduction of advanced Word level instructions such as Compare, Move, Shift, Rotate, and Math functions.

Participants are guided through several examples of ladder logic program development using previously learned instructions and incorporating CMP, Move, Shift, Rotate, and Math functions.

Participants are also introduced to conversions between numbering system data types. A powerful 3D Simulation software package called Factory IO is introduced through a practical example.
This course will introduce participants to Logic Gate instructions and how they are used in PLC programming.

Prepare for better pay & bigger responsibility

Eduardo Cali

I’m a maintenance technician at my company and I recently transferred to automation. We’re working more and more with Siemens so I needed to get up to speed on the newest PLC software. RealPars videos feel like a real classroom experience. The instructors are great…they’re easy to follow and they make the lessons relevant to real-world applications and I like that. I definitely recommend RealPars.

Mario Flores

I tried other online training, but I have to say that RealPars instructors helped me connect the dots in a way the others didn’t. I was able to expand my Siemens knowledge…I only knew Allen-Bradley…now I understand the differences and similarities better. I find RealPars to be a professional and affordable way to get the big picture of PLC as well as gain lots of practical knowledge.
