Function blocks and faceplates for evaluation of the diagnostic interface "COM" of the SITOP PSU6200 and visualization of the device data

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The SITOP PSU6200 power supply has a diagnostic interface "COM" whose signal can be evaluated via a digital input in a higher-level controller, e.g. S7-1200 CPU, S7-1500 CPU and S7-300 CPU / S7-400 CPU.

The diagnostic interface "COM" of the PSU6200 provides a signal that transmits the following device data as a Manchester code:

  • Voltage and current values
  • Nominal data
  • Device information
  • Temperature and operating hours

The following library provides function blocks for SIMATIC S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300, S7-400 and faceplates for SIMATIC Comfort Panels. The function blocks enable you to read in and evaluate the signal of the diagnostic interface "COM" via a digital input at the S7-CPU. You can use the faceplates to clearly display the device data on an HMI control panel.


  • The library blocks for SIMATIC S7-1500 can also be used in an ET 200SP CPU and ET 200pro CPU.
  • The library blocks for SIMATIC S7-300 can also used in an ET 200S CPU and ET 200pro CPU

The following image shows the graphic representation of the solution.
