New Functions for ET 200MP PROFINET IM and S7-1500 I/O Modules

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)


This is to announce new functions for ET 200MP PROFINET IM and S7-1500 I/O modules.


With immediate effect, a new firmware with new functions is available for the ET 200MP distributed I/O system and the S7-1500 I/O modules.

 

Overview of the new functions:

·         Submodule-granular Shared Device

·         Module-internal Shared Input (MSI)

·         Module-internal Shared Output (MSO)

·         Configuration control (options handling)

 

Submodule-granular Shared Device
 

This function enables an I/O module to be shared by up to four IO controllers. At present the IM 155-5 PN ST supports two IO controllers. An IM that permits a distribution to up to four IO controllers is in preparation. This feature enables the use of I/O modules with many channels, that are the distributed over several IO controllers. The latter can all be located in the same station. In the case of digital modules the assignment is on the basis of load groups, with analog modules it is on a channel basis. The logic assignment is to a so-called "Submodule". It is also possible to assign all these Submodules to a single IO controller. In this case the I/O addresses of the modules are not assigned on a block basis, but each Submodule can be assigned its own address.

·         Example:

o   If a 32-DI module is normally assigned to one IO controller, it occupies e.g the addresses EB8, EB9, EB10 and EB11 in one block. Only the basic address (EB8) can be changed; the other addresses cannot be changed.

o   However, if the module is configured as submodule-granular Shared Device, these four Bytes can be freely assigned with addresses, e.g. EB8, EB18, EB20 and EB30.

User benefits of submodule-granular Shared Device

·         Reduced costs due to saving of modules and IO-Devices

·         Less space required in the switchboard due to saving of modules and IO-Devices

·         Free address assignment for flexible program creation
 

Module-internal Shared Input (MSI)

The function Module-internal Shared Input (MSI) enables an input module to share its input data with up to four IO controllers. Each controller can make a read access to the same channels. When these modules are used together with the interface module IM 155-5 PN DP (6ES7 155-5 AA00-0AB0), up to two controllers are supported. In the case of a MSI configuration of an input module the input values of all channels are copied to a Basis Submodule (=main controller) and up to three additional MSI Submodules. The channels of the module are then available with identical input values in the Basis Submodule and the MSI Submodules. Each IO controller can make reading access to the same channels.
 

Module-internal Shared Output (MSO)

The function Module-internal Shared Output (MSO) enables an output module to share its output data with up to four IO controllers. One IO controller has write and read access (=main controller). The other IO controllers can make a read access to the same channels. When these modules are used together with the interface module IM 155-5 PN DP (6ES7 155-5 AA00-0AB0), up to two controllers are supported. In the case of a MSO configuration of an output module the output values of all channels of the module are copied from a Basis Submodule (=main controller) into up to three additional MSO Submodules. The channels of the module are then available with identical values in the Basis Submodule and the MSO Submodules:

·         The IO controller to which the Basis Submodule was assigned has read access to the outputs of the module. This controller is called the main controller.

·         The IO controllers to which the MSO Submodule was assigned have read access to the outputs of the module.

User benefits of MSI and MSO

·         Simultaneous capturing of the I/O data of several CPUs

·         Reduced costs due to saving of modules and IO-Devices

·         Less space required in the switchboard due to saving of modules and IO-Devices

·         Reduced communication load due to elimination of the CPU-CPU communication

·         Less programming work and simpler program upkeep due to elimination of the CPU-CPU communication

Please bear in mind that with MSI / MSO the value status (QI; Quality information) is always switched on. This means that all IO controller are always informed if the main controller has failed. MSI and MSO cannot be employed together with the function "Isochronous Mode".
 

Configuration Control (Options Handling)

The Configuration Control enables users to prepare their ET 200MP distributed I/O system for future expansions and alterations. Configuration control means that the planned maximum configuration is configured initially and can be flexibly modified later via the application program. This function addresses mainly series machine manufacturing where one machine is often manufactured in several different versions. The automation of these versions often only differs in the expansion of the distributed stations. Machine options can be retrofitted at a later date without special know how of the application program and without the engineering tool. The options are simply activated by enabling via a HMI, for instance.

User benefits

·         Simpler program upkeep

·         The customer initially only buys the expansion of the machine he currently requires, thus avoiding overhead and capital expenses

·         Flexible retrofitting at a later date guarantees investment security and investment protection.

·         Purchasing and enabling of the associated option package at the time when the functionality is required

Additional information (application example) on configuration control is available on the Internet (29430270) and the Online Help System of STEP7.

 

Configuration:

The module can be configured by means of a GSDML file which is available at entry ID 68189683 for download.
This file enables you to configure the IM 155-5 PN ST under:

·         TIA-Portal V12 and higher

·         STEP 7 V5.5, SP3

·         Engineering tools of other manufacturers; please bear in mind, however, that the usability of the PROFINET IO functions depends on the functionality of the configuration software.

Documentation:

The user manual of the module is available for download at entry ID 59193106.
The Product Information can be downloaded from entry ID 58650430.
Further useful information can be found in the System Manual ET 200MP Distributed I/O System at entry ID 59193214 and in the Functions Manual PROFINET with STEP7 V12 49948856.
