Siemens PLC Lab

Siemens Automation Laboratory PLC simulator

Our PLC simulator ensures our marine engineering and marine electro-technology students become familiar working with technology that is a part of an engineers everyday life onboard ships.

At the NZ Maritime School our students programme realistic control senarios used for ships machinery and equipment on the Siemens Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), in the new Siemens Automation Laboratory.

Training is carried out using the Siemens S7 1200 digital and analoge PLCs with latest TIA V13 software suite with our new laboratory equiped with 24 individual training stations.

Siemens PLCs are widely recognised as the leaders in the maritime industry and training our students on the Siemens technologies prepares them with the hands-on skills that they will build on when working at sea.
