The chapters Indirect Addressing, Analog Value Processing, Hardware Configuration, Global Data Communication, Profibus DP Configuration, Ethernet Networking and Remote Maintenance are of interest for advanced learners.
Using the demo version of WinPLC7 V4(*) you can reproduce the examples on a Windows-PC. Since the simulation software (Software-PLC) is to be operated just like a real S7-PLC, the reader will simultaneously also practice the handling with a real S7 controller.
An Overview of S7 Instructions, an overview of S7- PLCs and a Glossary in the appendix complete the book.
Topics from this book:
PLC Technical Basics, Types of Operands, Set-up of an S7 Program, Logic Operations, Timers, Counters, Symbolic Programming, Linear- and Structured Programming, Sequencer Programming, Differences to S5.
Block Parameter, Function Blocks, Data Blocks, Jump Instructions, Arithmetic Instructions, Definition of Variables, Analog Value Processing, Indirect Addressing.
Handling of S7 Controllers:
Error Diagnostic Options, Call Environment, Hardware Configuration, Profibus-DP Configuration, Diagnostic of DP-Systems, Use and Handling of Profibus-CPs (e.g. CP342), Startup of CPUs with Ethernet Interface, Use and Handling of Ethernet-CPs (e.g. CP343), SPEED7 Configuration
Networking of S7 Controllers:
Global Data Communication via MPI, Exchange of Data via Profibus-DP (Master-ISlave-Communication), Projected Connection via Ethernet.
General Automation Topics:
Remote Maintenance of S7 Controllers via Analog/ISDN, Remote Maintenance of S7 Controllers via the Internet, Application of a PLC-Analyzer for Error Detection and Process Optimization
