This course leads the student through several proven migration strategies and will include hands on exercises with actual hardware to demonstrate the capabilities of the chosen migration path. The various options will include HMI migration using client/server architectures as well as controller and I/O migration.


1 day


This course is recommended for Site Engineers and Integration Engineers who are planning migration paths for any HMI, or the Siemens Moore APACS and Quadlog controller.


It is recommended that the student have a working knowledge of the system hardware and software to be migrated.


Each student receives a copy of the Migration Configuration manual for post-class reference and review.


Upon completion of this course, in combination with hands-on exercises, the student will be able to:

  • Prepare an existing database for export and conversion.
  • Retain existing I/O modules and wiring.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of APACS Profibus architecture.
  • Extend I/O with distributed ET200 I/O.
  • Use the DP/IO bus link to extend the life of existing I/O.
