The application example provides a flying saw on the controller platform SIMATIC S7-1500T. A continuous moving material (e.g. foil, metal, paper, corrugated, steel profiles, etc.) can be cut on the fly. Functions: Automatic mode, immediate cut, cut to length or cutting mark, virtual or real master.
The SITOP PSU6200 power supply has a diagnostic interface "COM" whose signal can be evaluated via a digital input in a higher-level controller, e.g. S7-1200 CPU, S7-1500 CPU and S7-300 CPU / S7-400 CPU.
With this application example you get to know the functionality of the technology object "PID_Compact".
The application example shows the approach for tuning the controllers of thermally coupled systems.
You get a TIA Portal project for multi loop controlling using the example of a “chocolate water bath”. The cascade control is realized with the technology object "PID_Temp". The application example is described in detail.
The challenges in automation continue from day to day. To be able to cope with these challenges, the software in a process control system must be kept up to date. Because up-to-date software is one of the basic conditions to be able to work efficiently and produce reliable results.

This entry explains the I-device function and gives an overview of the various tasks that can be realized with it. These functions are explained in configuration and application examples.
The diagnostics of devices, modules and networks play an ever-increasing role in automation technology. By diagnosing with a user program, faulty modules can be detected. This enables you to also program responses to diagnostic messages.
A machine executing dangerous movements is controlled via a fail-safe controller and switched by means of contactors. The correct functioning of the contactors shall be monitored in order to ensure a high diagnostic coverage and, thus, a high SIL or PL.
To prevent access to the hazard zone of a machine during operation, a protective door is installed and the position of the protective door is monitored. Since overrunning machine components may cause hazards, the protective door is interlocked and can only be opened after the machine is in standstill.
This entry shows an application solution of how an S7-1500/1200 can exchange data with an FTP server as simple FTP client without communication processor.
This application shows you how you can realize the function of a Modbus RTU master as well as that of a Modbus RTU slave in a S7-1500/ET 200SP automation system.
To prevent access to the danger range of a machine, a protective door is installed. The machine can only be started, if the protective door is closed. If the protective door is opened during operation or if an error is detected, the machine will be shut down safely.
This entry deals with the "DataLog" process data acquisition and alarm generation via email with remote access to the CPU.
The PROFINET CPUs of the automation systems SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 and S7-300/400 and WinAC RTX can only be configured as NTP clients for time synchronization. With this library you can turn a SIMATIC S7 CPU into an SNTP server and thus realize a simple time synchronization of automation cells.
SNMP blocks for SIMATIC S7-PN CPUs for monitoring, controlling and configuration of SNMP capable network components.
To protect a machine efficiently against mechanical damage during operation and detect such damages at an early stage, the machine has to be monitored permanently.
This application example shows, how you configure communication via a gateway between SIMATIC S7 CPU and a KNX device via the KNX bus.
