Basic Process Library for TIA Portal (S7-1200/S7-1500/Runtime Professional) and Basic Process Library for WinCC V7 with example projects and faceplate/S7 block libraries

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Library with 22 SCL blocks for the control level and faceplates for visualization.

Plant manufacturers and system integrators are increasingly challenged to create ever more powerful automation solutions in order to achieve economic management at ever lower costs.
At the same time, end customers demand improved process stability and plant availability without increasing the engineering effort.

The answer is: Standardization
The TIA Portal provides a very powerful and tried and tested system platform that is upgraded further with the Basic Process Library.

Screen 01

The Basic Process Library is a tested and design-oriented library for the TIA Portal. With this library you can solve various automation tasks very efficiently and significantly reduce the engineering effort and thus the project planning costs as well as the project duration.

The library contains technological components consisting of:

  • Function modules based on Structured Control Language (SCL) for the control level
  • Faceplates and icons for the visualization level, scripting with Visual Basic (VB-Scripting)

The following technological components are included:

  • Motor with one direction of rotation (LibBPL_Mtr) 
  • Motor with two directions of rotation and two speeds (LibBPL_MtrDS)
  • Motor with speed control (LibBPL_MtrF) 
  • Valve with open/closed position (LibBPL_Vlv) 
  • Control Valve (LibBPL_VlvA) 
  • Analog signal (LibBPL_AnaRead) 
  • Average of 3 analog signals (LibBPL_AnaAvg) 
  • PID controller (LibBPL_CtrlPID) 
  • Step controller (LibBPL_CtrlStp) 
  • Message block (LibBPL_Msg8)
  • Unit circuit for up to 8 units (LibBPL_Aggr8)
  • Interlock block for 8 inputs (LibBPL_Intlk8)
