Integration of Comfort Panels, Operator Panels and S7-300 Package Units in SIMATIC PCS 7 with PCS 7 Industry Library

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Apart from the components directly related to the engineering process, many production plants include further machines and aggregates which also need to be controlled. In many cases, these so-called ‘Package Units’ (PU) are complete subsystem models for specific production tasks. Some of these PUs are equipped with plant components which are not part of the standard PCS 7 system.

Automation task
There is often a requirement to integrate plant components in PCS 7 like SIMATIC S7-300 CPUs, Operator Panels with WinCC flexible or Comfort Panels with WinCC comfort (TIA).

In addition to operation from the control station, there is often a requirement for the control and visualization of PCS 7 plant components close by the machine. Moreover, the use of various types of operation and display schemes, as well as different types of alarm systems make the integration into the higher-level process control system more complicated.

Solution
This application example provides different standardized options for the integration of S7-300 CPUs, Operator Panels and Comfort Panels in a SIMATIC PCS 7 system. The solutions are based on PCS 7 Industry Library (IL).




Benefits of the solution with PCS 7 Industry Library

  • Enables integrated and harmonic solutions of a process control task and thus an optimal operation of the whole process by reducing risk of operation failures
  • Amount of user specific functions will be reduced, this saves costs over the complete life cycle
  • Synergy effects regarding training and know-how transfer

This topic includes the following application examples:

  • Integration of S7-300 package units in SIMATIC  PCS 7 with PCS 7 Industry Library
    • communication management in the S7-400 CPU with "S7Put" and "S7Get"
    • configuration of the S7-300 CPU with IL for S7
  • Integration of Operator Panels in SIMATIC  PCS 7 with PCS 7 Industry Library and WinCC flexible
    (machine-based operation and monitoring via the operating panel)
  • Integration of Comfort Panels in SIMATIC  PCS 7 with PCS 7 Industry Library and WinCC Comfort (TIA Portal)
    (machine-based operation and monitoring via the operating panel)

Validity

  • SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 with SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V9.0 Update 1 (Comfort Panels, Operator Panels and S7-300)
  • SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.1 with SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library V8.1 (Comfort Panels)
