Expanding an Existing SINAUT Plant by S7-1200 Stations with CP 1243-8 IRC
An S7-1200 station and an S7-300 station shall communicate with each other and with a central station using different topologies. On the central station PC, the SIMATIC NET PC software, the SINAUT ST7cc software, and the WinCC software has been installed. For telecontrol communication, the ST7 protocol is used.
The following functions are realized in this application example:
- The remote stations can send process tags to each other.
The remote stations send important process tags “event-triggered” to the central station as alarms.
The process tags are stored in an archive.
The control center monitors the status of the connected remote stations.
This entry is divided into three sub-configurations that each solve the same task:
- Topology via Ethernet
- Topology via redundant paths (Ethernet and dedicated line)
- Topology via the mobile wireless network and the Internet (transport protocol MSC)
The configuration of these settings is performed with STEP 7 V5.5, STEP 7 V13 SP1, SINAUT ST7 engineering tool and SINAUT St7cc.
