PCS 7 Modules

500 Process Automation (PA) – University Curriculums Version 7.0

With the PCS 7 curricula, basic PCS 7 knowledge can be taught to students of universities and technical colleges within approximately 60 hours (= 1 semester). This is achieved through the hands-on exercises and one plant simulation.

In this module, readers will learn the functional principle of an automation system. You can configure the PCS 7 hardware and check it for consistency. Settings are parameterized so that the PCS 7 process control system can use the information to autonomously create all the blocks in the automation stations required for communication between sensors, actuators and the control level.
