Test Real-World Siemens PLC Program Simulations and Industrial Applications

This training system’s PLC Simulator Module features eight input devices – including four pushbuttons, two two-position selector switches, and one three-position selector switch (two inputs) – and eight output indicator lights. This PLC Simulator – along with the Mechatronics training system that includes a Siemens S7-1500 PLC (870-S715) – allows learners to test real-world PLC programs and applications through skills like designing a PLC program that controls two constant-speed electric motors, as well as entering and operating a PLC program for the following: an input instruction with an output address, a continuous-cycle actuator reciprocating program, a non-retentive off-delay PLC timer instruction, a PLC count up instruction, and more!

Interactive PLC Training Within World-Class Multimedia Curriculum

Siemens S7-1500 PLC Multimedia Training Course (M33746)

Amatrol’s peerless interactive multimedia curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, and interactive quizzes and reviews that engage learners in theoretical knowledge and concepts. Within this course, learners explore topics like: the basic components of a PLC, how to run and monitor a PLC program, the operation of internal output instructions, methods of stopping a PLC-controlled machine, the operation of a time-driven sequence, and much more.

Mechatronics | Automation Systems

Modern industry utilizes complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products for an ever demanding world. Amatrol’s Mechatronics training programs teach systems-level thinking and industrial automation skill-building that prepares learners for mechatronics operation, hands-on PLC programming, and industrial maintenance and problem solving for real-world manufacturing environments. With the proliferation of automation technology, mechatronics is one of the fastest growing technical education programs in the world. Many technologies are integrated to make these sophisticated production systems including mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software. In order to meet this vital industry demand, Amatrol has developed both a large scale mechatronics line and a portable, tabletop mechatronics training system, each with highly interactive eLearning mechatronics courses. Each of these systems is comprised of individual stations that can be purchased separately when mechatronics training is necessary but budgets must be observed or all together to form a total learning experience. This training experience can apply to various careers such as mechatronics engineer / technician, automation engineer / technician, and systems engineer / technician.
