OMAC PackML Machine Simulation

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This document contains information about the OMAC PackML Machine Simulation Demo.

This application example offers the possibility to provide information via an interface according to "OMAC PackML PackTags". Data and values can be parameterized via a machine simulation to configurable state transitions or waiting times in certain states.
The application example is based on a realization with the OMAC State Manager (see entry ID: 49970441) and a realization based on "S88" according to Equipment and Control Modules.

The application example can also be used to verify the communication and evaluation of PackTags by higher-level systems. This can be used, for example, for an endurance test of SCADA or cloud-based systems with the evaluation of various state changes.

The OMAC PackML Machine Simulation application example offers:

  • An OMAC PackML compatible interface
  • An OMAC machine simulation based on the OMAC PackML State Manager
  • Configuration of automatic, semi-automatic or manual state changes and waiting times within states
  • A visualization of various functions such as OMAC mode, status displays and energy consumption  

Siemens provides the SIMATIC CPG Template (Beitrags-ID: 109475572) as a template for converting a machine application to OMAC PackML. 

The SIMATIC CPG template offers a clear and proven project structure with a modular design as well as a project basis for machine builders that is easy to diagnose and simple to expand.
