Sales and Delivery Release for SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

The new SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library (IL) V8.1 expands the SIMATIC PCS 7 Advanced Process Library (APL) with technological software blocks and faceplates in APL design suitable for the implementation of specific industry functionalities. It furthermore supports the operator input and control via SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels, as well as the integration of SIMATIC S7 Package Units.

1 Areas of application

The functions of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1 are executed in the style of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Advanced Process Library and thus seamlessly supplement the latter's standard functionality. Together, the two libraries enable harmonized overall solutions for specific process control tasks in many different industries, e.g.: 

  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Water and wastewater treatment
  • Glass and solar
  • Oil and gas
  • Food and beverage
  • Minerals and mining

2 Product information

The SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1 internally consists of two separately installable section libraries with specific installation requirements:

  • Section library Industry Library for PCS 7 for functional expansion of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Advanced Process Library V8.1
  • Section library Industry Library for S7 for the configuration of Package Units based on S7-300 controllers

The installation requirements for both section libraries are described in the readme file "IL_V81_Readme.zip":

2.1 What's new in the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1?

Section library Industry Library for PCS 7

  • Integration of SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels in SIMATIC PCS 7
  • New function blocks:
    • ParaCtrl and ParaMem for the parameter management
    • Lead block CalcTHX and Optimization block OptiOT for building automation
    • Polygon block PolyCurve with a configurable number of support points
    • Diverter block VlvDiv for the control of diverters
  • Expansion of function blocks:
    •  Aggregate prioritization for Aggr08 and Aggr16
    • 1 additional counter for CalcWatP

Section library Industry Library for S7

  • Integration of SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels in SIMATIC S7
  • New function blocks:
    • S7VlvMot for the control of motor valves
    • Panel block S7PVlvMot for the block S7VlvMot

2.2 Operator input and control on a SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panel

The operator input and control on a SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panel can be configured with the panel interface blocks of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1. Configuration is in CFC in parallel with the technological block (e.g. motor). If the user rights and the hierarchical control concepts are taken into consideration (multi-control-room operation of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library), the technological function can afterwards be controlled both from a SIMATIC PCS 7 Operator Station and from a SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panel.

Preconditions

  • Hardware: SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panel TP1200 and higher
  • Software: SIMATIC WinCC Comfort V13 (TIA Portal)

2.3 Licensing of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1

The SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1 differentiates between the following types of licenses:

  • Engineering license for one Engineering Station
  • Runtime license for one automation system (SIMATIC PCS 7 automation systems of all designs and S7-300 controllers)
  • Upgrade license (V8.0 to V8.1) for all Engineering and Runtime licenses of a project

The Engineering license enables you to do configuration work with the two section libraries of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1 on a SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineering Station. Any licenses possibly required for SIMATIC WinCC or SIMATIC STEP 7 when you use the "Industry Library for S7" are not included in the delivery and must be purchased separately.

The runtime license is required for all automation systems (controllers) on which blocks from the section libraries "Industry Library for PCS 7" and "Industry Library for S7" execute.
Please note: In the case of the SIMATIC PCS 7 AS bundles from Catalog ST PCS 7 the Runtime license "SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library Runtime V8.1" is inclusive.

Please also bear in mind that for the technological blocks of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1 the PO concept of SIMATIC PCS 7 is applicable, i.e. SIMATIC PCS 7 Runtime POs are booked for these blocks.

The Upgrade license entitles you to upgrade systems with Engineering and Runtime licenses of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.0 or V8.0+SP1. One Upgrade license is always valid for all Engineering and Runtime licenses of a project.
