Overview

SIMATIC S7 programmable controllers are used to implement industrial control systems for machines, manufacturing plants and industrial processes. The relevant open-loop and closed-loop control tasks can be solved using the STEP 7 programming software, which has been developed on the basis of STEP 5, with its various programming languages.
This book describes elements and applications of the graphic-oriented programming languages LAD (ladder diagram) and FBD (function block diagram) for use with both SIMATIC S7-300 and SIMATIC S7-400. It is aimed at all users of SIMATIC S7 programmable controllers. First-time users will be introduced to the field of programmable logic control whereas advanced users will learn about specific applications of SIMATIC S7 programmable controllers.
The enclosed diskette contains many programming examples written in LAD and FBD and archived within block libraries. The examples can be viewed, modified and tested using STEP 7.

From the Publisher
Anyone involved with exploring the world of Step7 would do well with this book.
I have been involved with PLC technology since 1979 and even today there are too few available reference manuals. (Amazon)
...
If you program with Step 7 or plan to, this book will save you a lot of headaches since little in Step 7 is as intuitive as Allen Bradley or Modicon.
