Automation Studio is used to configure and program all B&R controller components. Core issues such as getting a clear overview of all product groups, initial commissioning of a controller, understanding the functions of the runtime environment and being familiar with the options for integrated configuration and diagnostics are decisive.

This lesson is the prerequisite for many follow-up seminars.

This remote lecture will be held online. You will receive an invitation to a virtual classroom via Microsoft Teams. This may require additional registration on your part.

Participants need a PC with web browser, a microphone and speakers (e.g. USB headset). A second screen and a webcam are recommended, but not mandatory. A stable Internet connection is required.

All exercises are performed in an Automation Runtime Simulation (ArSim). Use of an ETA Light system (ETAL210.1050-1 with accessories) is an advantage.

A live session is planned every day. Afterwards you will receive exercises. Your tutor will be available in the chat at agreed times. Use the chat capabilities to share your experiences with other participants. Schedule about 2 - 3 hours per day.
