SIEMENS Simatic - Working with STEP7
In this manual you will learn the basics of SIMATIC STEP 7. It shows you the most important screen dialog boxes and the procedures to follow using practical exercises, which are structured so that you can start with almost any chapter.
Each section is split into two parts: a descriptive part, marked in gray, and a process-oriented part, marked in green. The instructions start with an arrow in the green margin and may be spread out over several pages, finishing in a full stop and a box containing related topics.
Previous experience of working with the mouse, window handling, pull-down menus, etc. would be useful, and you should preferably be familiar with the basic principles of programmable logic control.
The STEP 7 training courses provide you with in-depth knowledge above and beyond the contents of this Getting Started manual, teaching you how entire automation solutions can be created with STEP 7.
