S7 Automation Maintenance 1- SIMATIC S7 with STEP 7 v5

This 4½-day course is designed for maintainers and “first responders” to Siemens S7 automated control systems.

Automation Maintenance 1 is a new course designed using Performance-Based Learning strategy which adopts current Adult Learning and Development standards and practices. The result is a course with well-defined performance based learning objectives that emphasizes task-based assessments of student performance. To successfully complete each module in the course, a student must demonstrate his/her ability to perform a specific automation task demonstrating the application of automation knowledge and skills.

This course will have brief instructor led discussions followed by numerous hands-on exercises using a Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) plant model develop and reinforce practical experience. The TIA plant model consists of an S7-300 automation system, ET200S distributed I/O station, SIMATIC HMI Touch Panel, and a working conveyor model.

Students will perform visual and multi -meter wire checks, hardware component diagnostics and troubleshooting as well as equipment replacement and restoring a failed PLC system to a normal operating state. Upon completion of the course, maintenance technicians should be able to establish communications to a Siemens PLC system, diagnose, troubleshoot, and restore basic faults on an S7 hardware system, reducing costly downtime.


Maintenance technicians, electricians, supervisors and others, who need to develop active skills using their Siemens Hardware system, should attend this course to maximize line uptime.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this 4½-day course, the student shall be able to:

  • Use a Siemens PG or laptop PC to communicate with an S7 PLC system
  • Examine and complete wiring diagrams for S7300 I/O modules
  • Using a Multimeter, wire check S7300 main station and ET200S remote PROFIBUS station I/O modules
  • Replace S7 hardware modules, update the hardware configuration and download changes to the PLC
  • Wire PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET (RJ45) connectors with corresponding cables
  • Backup and restore an S7 project
  • Complete an end-of-week comprehensive student project to reinforce and demonstrate learned skills
