Software, Programming, Data Communication, Operator Control and
By Hans Berger
Use SIMATIC to
Control Machines, Manufacturing Systems and Technical Processes
Totally Integrated Automation is the concept by
means of which SIMATIC controls machines, manufacturing systems and
technical processes. Taking the example of the S7-300/400
programmable controller, this book provides a comprehensive
introduction to the architecture and operation of a state-of-the-art
It also gives an insight into configuration
and parameter setting for the controller and the distributed I/O.
Communication via network connections is explained, along with a
description of the available scope for operator control and
monitoring of a plant.
As the central automation tool, STEP 7 manages
all relevant tasks and offers a choice of various text and
graphics-oriented PLC programming languages. The available languages
and their respective different features are explained to the reader.
For this third edition, the contents of all
sections of the book have been revised, updated and the new data
communications with PROFINET IO have been added. The STEP 7 basic
software is explained in its latest version.
The book is ideal for those who have no
extensive prior knowledge of programmable controllers and wish for
an uncomplicated introduction to this subject.
