The aim of developing this innovative PLC training equipment was to reproduce the
modularity of the S7 components in terms of their application. To achieve this,
appropriate connection assemblies were developed for the prevalent S7 assemblies.
Each pair is mounted together under each other on the table-top support. The S7
assemblies are at the top on the original Siemens assembly carriers, with the connection
modules underneath in the profile frames which are ergonomically inclined. Electrical
connection is made exclusively between each of the partnering units, that is to
say from above to below.
Power is supplied to the individual pairs via bridge connectors on the front of
the connection assemblies, from left to right. This modular setup enables the user
to dismantle the training equipment in a short time and assemble it as quickly in
a different configuration. This enables targeted training in the structure and configuration
of SIMATIC®S7 stations. The PLC training racks can be used with S7-300 and S7-1500
assemblies. All connections are designed with 4-mm safety technology.
