Expansion of the product range with the PCS 7 PowerControl Library
With the SP2, the product range of SIMATIC PCS 7 PowerControl V8.0 will be expanded by a PCS 7 PowerControl Library. By providing AS blocks, symbols and faceplates the PCS 7 PowerControl Library supports the integration of electrical equipment via Station Controller or Station Gateway. This type of coupling is an alternative to the direct device coupling via SIMATIC PCS 7 OS Server or SIMATIC PCS 7 OS Single Station.
The PCS 7 PowerControl Library V8.0 provides AS blocks, symbols and faceplates for the following electrical equipment or technological functions:
- Feeder/machine (motor, generator)
- Cable/line protection
- Bus conductor
The symbols and faceplates of the PCS 7 PowerControl Library are comparable with the corresponding symbols and faceplates in the OS library for direct device coupling. Irrespective of the type coupling the visualization on the Operator Station will therefore always be uniform.
The blocks of the PCS 7 PowerControl Library can be employed in the following hardware environment, for which the supplementary products from the catalog ST PCS 7 AO 2013, chapter 10, provide own device driver libraries:
Plant configuration with Station Controller (example)
Plant configuration with Station Gateway (example)
