Terms of Use.
    

1. Classification/Area of Application

SIMATIC PDM is an established universal, multi-vendor tool for configuration, parameterization, commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance of intelligent field devices (sensors and actuators) and field components (remote I/Os, multiplexers, control room devices, compact controllers). The library supplied with SIMATIC PDM with its more than 3,500 device descriptions for devices from more than 200 manufacturers worldwide, is most likely the most comprehensive library on the market. SIMATIC PDM V9.1 further improves, upgrades and completes device support, functionality, performance and ease of operation. 

The new PDM version allows system operators and installers to significantly reduce their commissioning times and service times. New product features and new, effective volume operations enable effective work on many SIMATIC PDM workstations with common data management or working on independent local service and parameter assignment stations with subsequent data synchronization with the central engineering station or central service and parameter assignment stations.
  
If SIMATIC PDM is used as a central service and parameter assignment station in a client/server structure, SIMATIC PDM V9.1 allows maintenance personnel at fixed and mobile workstations to assign parameters to the field devices via the default "Internet Explorer" browser or even Google Chrome. This means that practically every work station integrated in the production plant can be used for configuration. Service engineers therefore benefit from significantly shorter waiting and travel times, as they can work directly on the field device on site, whereas the data is stored centrally in the engineering station.
   
The functionality of SIMATIC PDM has been further optimized to enable it to be used even more successfully with the various applications in operations management, service, commissioning and device management. SIMATIC PDM is designed in such a way that its applications can range from the processing of a single field device in the service workshop to the processing of vast numbers of field devices in large automation projects.

SIMATIC PDM is ideal for the following applications and objectives:

  • Single point station
    For the processing of precisely one field device with direct connection from SIMATIC PDM to the field device
  • Local service and parameter assignment station
    For processing several field devices in one field bus segment or remote I/O stations. In this application, SIMATIC PDM is connected to the local bus segment.
  • Central service and parameter assignment station
    For the processing of several up to a large quantity of field devices in a production plant. In this application, SIMATIC PDM is connected to the central plant bus and can access the field devices via the SIMATIC automation stations. Information on the fieldbuses and connected field devices can be transferred from the SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineering Station. This station can be used several times within one automation project. This allows service and parameter assignment stations to be installed in a plant unit-granular or device-specific manner. The SIMATIC PDM version used is not linked to the version of the software components of the automation system and can thus be kept always up-to-date.

  • HART service and parameter assignment station
    For the processing of HART field devices connected via HART multiplexers and "Wireless HART Gateways". In this application, SIMATIC PDM is connected to the local HART multiplexer networks or the Ethernet networks of the "Wireless HART Gateways".

  • Field device parameter assignment tool in the SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineering Station
    For the direct processing of field devices in the hardware configurator of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineering Station or  locally at the field device using a mobile SIMATIC PDM Client, whereby the data management is performed in the Engineering Station. In this application, SIMATIC PDM communicates with the field devices via the communication paths of the Engineering Station.

  • Field device service and parameter assignment tool in the Maintenance Station of the SIMATIC PCS 7 product family
    For field device management in the operating phase of an automation project. The field device processing functions of SIMATIC PDM are called up on the operator stations of the Maintenance Stations or locally on the field device via a mobile SIMATIC PDM Client. SIMATIC PDM supplies the SIMATIC PCS 7 Maintenance Station with information on the field device type, parameter assignment and diagnostics.

2. What's new?

In the process device plant view, it is possible to execute group operations for any number of field devices. The following system functions are available as group operations:

  • Export parameter
  • Import parameter
  • Write parameters to the field device
  • Read parameters from the field device
  • Update diagnostic information

Group operations are distinguished by the following properties:

  • Field devices can be freely selected
  • In batch operations, it is possible to combine the selected system functions several times
  • The system functions can be used several times in one operation for individual field devices
  • Up to 10 system functions can be executed simultaneously, depending on the terminal and the type of the system function.
  • Group operations are executed without interruptions (except for field devices).
  • An alarm log is created using information, warning and error messages
  • The field devices are clearly shown in relation to the successful or unsuccessful execution of the assigned system functions.

The parameters view of a field device allows you to transfer individual writable parameters to the data management of any number of field devices of the same type using the "Parameter transfer" system function. These parameters can then be written to the field devices in a group operation, which is executed subsequently.
  
User friendliness
The SIMATIC PDM portal allows you to hide all signal modules and network components in a single operation step, just like in the process device plant view.
In the SIMATIC PDM portal, the search function was adjusted in the functionality of the process device plant view.
  
Communication
From the central service and parameter assignment station connected to the central plant bus, it is possible to control field devices on subordinate PROFINET fieldbus systems of SIMATIC automation stations.
From the central service and parameter assignment station connected to the plant bus, and from the SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineering Station, it is possible to maintain a lifelist for field devices connected to the subordinate fieldbus systems (PROFINET) of SIMATIC Automation Stations.

  • On the CPU interfaces for configured field devices
  • On the interfaces of CP modules for connected field devices
  • On SIMATIC DP/PA link modules for connected field devices with the possibility of re-addressing

The operation of SIMATIC PDM Clients has been released for terminal servers placed in perimeter networks.
  
Integration of field devices and field components
This new SIMATIC PDM V9.1 version introduces support for the new FDI technology for device integration. The standardized FDI technology is an open integration technology for field devices in parameter assignment and diagnostic tools. The Device Integration Manager (DIM) of SIMATIC PDM enables the integration of FDI device description packages created on the basis of the FDI specification V1.2. The integration, processing and representation of field devices described in the FDI device description packages within SIMATIC PDM are identical to the previously used integration technologies. Users will appreciate the "smooth" transition to this new and innovative technology as they don't need to replace existing field devices or change their device descriptions nor do they need to adapt the automation projects.
When integrating the FDI technology into SIMATIC PDM, the fully described device functionality is supported in the first stage, with the exception of any additional UIP (User Interface Plugin) components that may be present in the device description packages.   
  
The Device Library 1#2017 is delivered together with SIMATIC PDM V9.1. It includes:
  • Current EDD basic library V2.0.5 by PROFIBUS & PROFINET International
  • Complete library 2014#4 of the HART Communication Foundation (HCF) organization
  • FF Device Library V6 (3.80) of the Fieldbus Foundation
  • Corrections and extensions of existing manufacturer-specific device descriptions
  • New manufacturer-specific device descriptions
        
A list of all field devices and field components whose device descriptions are contained in the "Device Library 1#2017", see entry ID 109748102.
   
Note
Additional device descriptions are available on the websites of the device manufacturers and can be imported and used at your own risk. Observe the notes and disclaimers in the SIMATIC PDM documentation regarding use of device descriptions.

3. Information on updating existing installations

SIMATIC PDM as a local or central service station (stand alone) 
For applications of SIMATIC PDM in central or local service stations, it is generally recommended to upgrade the existing installation in the following order to achieve better performance, quality improvements and to meet updated international specifications:

  • Update SIMATIC PDM software to V9.1
  • Update all used device descriptions by means of the Device Library 1#2017.
  • Re-import devices that were imported separately.

You can use the product "SIMATIC PDM Software Media Package V9.1" (see order data) to update the SIMATIC PDM software and the device library. The Device Library 1#2017 is also available as a separate download (see entry ID 109748100).
  
SIMATIC PDM system integrated (in SIMATIC PCS 7/STEP 7)

  • The statements regarding the migration and update of SIMATIC PCS 7 apply for applications of SIMATIC PDM integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7. In principle, it is possible to use SIMATIC PDM V9.1 from SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.2.x without limitations (except for FF option).
  • Due to technical software dependencies between SIMATIC PDM and Step 7 in the context of the integration of the FOUNDATION Fieldbus (FF) and certification to HIST 61b, system-integrated operation of SIMATIC PDM V9.1 is only possible in combination with STEP 7 V5.6.
  • Due to the relationship with STEP 7 (from V5.5 SP4), you can only use SIMATIC PDM V9.1 in SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.1.
  • SIMATIC PDM V8.1+SP1 is still available for SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.0, V8.0+Update 1, V8.0+SP1, V8.0+SP1 Update 1 or V8.0+SP2.

For larger projects, it is possible to expand the number of required TAGs at any time with cumulative 10, 100, or 1 000 TAGs. One TAG corresponds to one SIMATIC PDM object, which represents individual field devices or components within a project, e.g. measuring instruments, positioners, switchgear or remote I/Os. TAGs are also relevant for diagnostics with the lifelist of SIMATIC PDM. In this case, TAGs are considered to be all recognized devices with diagnostics capability, whose detailed diagnostics is effected through the device description (EDD).

SIMATIC PDM Clients (version independent)
Cumulative SIMATIC PDM Client licenses for expansion of product packages:

  • 1 TAG

The license serves for activating registered client and SIMATIC PDM sessions on this PDM Client. Every "PDM Client" license enables one PDM Client with one PDM session. Every additionally open PDM session requires a further "PDM Client" license. For the SIMATIC PDM session, an open portal is used together with the opened parameter settings of field devices. The "PDM Client" license must be transferred to the PC with the SIMATIC PDM Server. The SIMATIC PDM Server product package supports projects with 1 PDM client as standard. For larger projects, the number of required TAGs can be expanded at any time with cumulative 1 client "PDM Client" licenses to a maximum of 30 registered PDM Clients.

5. Compatibility

5.1. Software compatibility

SIMATIC PDM V9.1 can be operated with the following Windows operating systems: 

  • Windows 7 Professional SP1 (64 Bit) (English only)

  • Windows 7 Ultimate/Enterprise SP1 (64 Bit)

  • Windows 10 Professional (64 Bit)

  • Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB 64-bit

Note

If SIMATIC PDM V9.1 is used integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7 < V9.0.x and the server functionality is used, then additionally the software SIMATIC Logon V1.6 needs to be installed through the SIMATIC PDM Media Package V9.1 and the license from "SIMATIC PDM Upgrade Package Complete V8.x/V9.0 to V9.1" must be transferred.


5.2. Compatibility of the device description

The device descriptions used so far are basically as functional as with SIMATIC PDM V6.1 or SIMATIC PDM V8.x. However, adaptations in the international standards and specifications on which they are based have resulted in changes in the basic libraries of SIMATIC PDM. Different manufacturers have also adapted, corrected and functionally enhanced their device descriptions. This means that if you upgrade to SIMATIC PDM V9.1, you also have to use the Device Library 1#2017 to update or re-import all the device descriptions that were previously imported/integrated with an older version of the device library. When doing so, please observe the conformity information of the field device manufacturers for the different versions of SIMATIC PDM.
  
Error messages may be displayed in some cases during interpretation of the device descriptions. These refer to the interpretation of fixed texts or adaptations/corrections in the device description that have not been implemented yet. In such cases, request an update of the device description from the respective device manufacturer and inform our Technical Support staff.
www.siemens.com/industry/supportrequest 

     
The "Syntax and semantics check" function in SIMATIC PDM is intended to support the development of EDD device description packages, which are integrated as an FDI device description package in a subsequent version of SIMATIC PDM. If this function is executed, a number of protocol entries occur in many devices . These are purely for information purposes and do not affect the functioning of the system.

5.3. Hardware compatibility

The compatibility of SIMATIC PDM with communication modules (CP) for PROFIBUS, Industrial Ethernet, PROFINET and HART communication was not explicitly tested. However, the modules listed below are used in the SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC PDM system test and do not cause any errors. The product-specific release of the communication modules takes place as part of the release for SIMATIC PCS 7 or by the product owner of the communication module. 
When using SIMATIC PDM in a SIMATIC PCS 7 Engineering Station, the following Industrial Ethernet communication modules are also released for SIMATIC PDM, as listed in Chapter 6.1:

Due to the definitions in the international standards and specifications for the creation of device description packages (EDD), the representations and user interfaces in SIMATIC PDM are based on the use of desktop PCs, laptops and field PGs with mouse and keyboard controls. In principle, it is possible to use mobile devices (such as tablet PCs) for clients of SIMATIC PDM, but this can limit the operating comfort and display of interfaces.
