Example Blocks for WinCC (TIA Portal) and STEP 7 (TIA Portal) for S7-1200 and S7-1500 with SCL
The sensors (binary and analog values) and actuators (valves) of a plant are the basic components of every automation project. The delivery scope of STEP 7 (TIA Portal and WinCC (TIA Portal) does not include technological blocks as a standard feature for the configuration of a basic automation.
This application provides example blocks for WinCC and STEP 7.
The documentation describes how the technological blocks are called and interconnected in STEP 7 and WinCC.
This example project also shows the ready interconnection of the technology blocks (basic automation).

The use of faceplates offers you the following advantages:
- Centralized editing
When there are any changes on a faceplate, all usage locations of this faceplate will be updated automatically and you save to make multiple changes in all usage locations.
- Re-use in other projects
A library is available as download. This makes it easy to use the blocks in your individual projects.
- Reduced time and effort required for configuration
By using these ready blocks you save internal development efforts.
- In the example project, two SIMOCODE pro management systems are configured. The diagnostics function of the controller detects whether configured hardware is missing when starting the program.
- For this reason, the diagnostics function signals that an I/O access error has occurred, even if the project has been configured correctly. In addition, the red error LED of the controller lights up.
- Correct functioning of the example project does not require a maximum configuration of the hardware.
Correct functioning will not be affected by this diagnostic alarm.
