Automation Systems

Profile and objectives

The laboratory enables the students to deepen and put into practice the knowledge acquired in the four-hour lecture Automation Systems through practical work on the most modern industrial automation devices.


  • Some complete SIMATIC S7 Systems
  • A PCS 7 process control System
  • PCs and Printers
  • RS-232 Interface
  • ASI bus
  • Interbus-S
  • Profibus
  • Profibus PA
  • Profinet

Internships and Tutorials

Under the guidance of Mr. Schmitt, the students use programmable logic controllers with central and decentralized peripherals. SIMATIC S7 is mainly used for this purpose. In addition, various fieldbuses must also be put into operation. The visualization of processes is trained.

The highlight of the laboratory is the use of a state-of-the-art process control system from industry. Here we will practice how to connect ready-made software modules.
