Required prerequisites: Experience in a Windows environment, basic knowledge of SIMATIC STEP 7 at the level of the ST-PRO1 course.

The course is intended for engineers who want to expand their knowledge in the field of programmable logic controller programming and become familiar with advanced techniques in this field. With our help, the student creates a complex program that demonstrates the possibilities of connecting different devices into one unit, and thus completely explains the SIEMENS TIA concept of industrial automation.

The course provides an overview of more advanced techniques for connecting HMI (TP177B) and PROFIBUS DP devices (ET200S and SINAMICS G120).

The participants, among other things, learn about parameterization, diagnostics and commissioning of frequency regulators via the PROFIBUS network using the SIEMENS STARTER software tool.

Course content

The ST-PRO2 course is intensive, and lasts 5 working days, from Monday to Thursday in the period from 08:30 to 16:00, with a break for lunch, while on Fridays the lecture lasts from 08:30 to 13:00. Upon completion of the course, a bilingual certificate of successfully completed training is obtained.

The price of the course includes lectures, work on models, literature and lunch.

The course is held in the INDAS office building in Novi Sad, Heroja Pinkija 95.
