Task description
This documentation shows how WinCC V7.2 and TIA Portal STEP 7 Professional V13 with example blocks is used for the solution of an technological automation task.

The sensors (binary and analog signals) and actuators (valves, motors) of a plant system represent the basis of each automation project. In the standard delivery of TIA Portal STEP 7 Professional V13 and WinCC V7.2, there are no technological blocks contained to implement basic automation.

At this point, this application provides a remedy. It makes useful blocks available for
WinCC V7.2 and STEP 7 with S7-1500 systems.

The documentation describes how the technological blocks are called and interconnected in TIA Portal STEP 7 Professional V13 and WinCC V7.2.
This example project also shows the ready interconnection of the technology blocks (basic automation).

    Visualization and operation of a binary valve
    Visualization and operation of digital signals.
    Visualization and operation of analog signals.
    Visualization and operation of a motor with fixed speed and rotational direction.

The documentation describes how the technology blocks are called and interconnected in STEP 7 and WinCC. To do so, an example plant has been configured which includes several binary and analog values, valves and motors. This example project also shows how the individual technology blocks are interconnected (basic automation). Higher-level automation functions (two-step and PID control) are also configured.

The figure below shows exemplary faceplates of the solutions.
