this is one of the highest value courses I published so far. I wish I have had such information available when I was planning to find a job as an electrical designer in the automotive industry. That's why I've created this course for you.

This kind of insight information is not possible to find anywhere on the internet, decently put together in one place.

This course is going to cover two major topics related to electrical design in the car body manufacturing sector in Germany,

First the general info how the system works, what are the qualifications needed to increase your chances to land a job in Germany in the car body manufacturing sector. Then the software you need to know in depth to dramatically increase your chances for employment (these software are going to be your entrance ticket at the beginning, like they were for me). Also, when you land a job, what happens then in the company and how is it organized in case you have no previous experience in the automotive industry but have a decent experience generally in the electrical design.

Second part of the course is going to be all about a real-life project from the car body manufacturing sector I have worked on a couple of years ago.

So I am going to talk a about the project, first the general info and the technology. Then, as we progress deeper into the course I am going to concentrate more and more on the technical side of the EPLAN project. So starting from how do you even start to design such a complex automation systems (that also has robots) and then I am going to cover the power system (400VAC distribution across cabinets), the control system (Siemens S7-319F CPU and ET-200s distributed peripherals and how this looks like in EPLAN project) and the network topology (PROFIsafe and the architecture of the control, safety and networking system on this project). In the last lectures I am going to cover also examples of the sections in the safety system (laser scanner, light barrier, emergency stop pushbutton, maintenance door safety switch etc.)


So altogether a highly valuable overview of how thinks work when you work as an electrical design engineer in the automotive industry in Germany, in the car body manufacturing sector plus a very nice example of a project, a production line, a robotic cell with all of its features.


PS: I unfortunately don't have photos of the robotic cell and the elements (we are going to instead google some of the special elements found in a cell) but I do have an overview of the robotic cell inside EPLAN project where you see the robots and the manual infeed stations and all the important elements including the safety elements. All that with the part numbers for the most important devices that you can check those datasheets and manuals on your own.


Hope you'll enjoy this course and I wish you a lot of fun in the lectures!

Yours sincerely,

Ivan (aka EplanTutor)
