SIMATIC/SIMOTION Weihenstephan Standards

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This application supports in integrating the Weihenstephan Standards into SIMATIC controllers and the motion control system SIMOTION. The Weihenstephan Standards (WS) define a universal communication interface for connecting machines to higher level data acquisition systems or MES (Manufacturing Execution systems). They also define the data which must be provided for acquisition.

Task
A machine builder is requested to deliver a Weihenstephan Standards compliant machine into a production line. The integration of the Weihenstephan Standards shall be possible without much engineering, test, etc. effort.

 

 
 

 

Solution
Siemens supports the machine builder in integrating a Weihenstephan Standards compliant solution for SIMATIC controllers and the motion control system SIMOTION.

  • Automatic generation of the corresponding data blocks from the device description file PDACONF.xml
  • Reduced engineering effort by means of predefined and tested library blocks to integrate a compliant Weihenstephan server functionality incl. example call
  • Reduced integration costs through standardized data interfaces
  • Program and State Management according to Weihenstephan for SIMATIC S7-1200/S7-1500 controllers incl. HMI for Comfort Panels
  • High acceptance of the standard in the beverage sector, food production, …

In addition the Weihenstephan client functionality is available for SIMATIC controllers. It can be used, e.g. for machine internal communication to a printer, scanner, …

The software is integrated in the machine application in STEP 7 V5.x by using the ProjectGenerator SIMOTION easyProject for SIMATIC or SIMOTION.
