The library "LGF (Library of general functions)" contains additional functions for STEP 7 (TIA Portal).
You can use SIMATIC S7 PLCs for preprocessing measured value data. This article provides some standard functions for statistical processing and display of measured values.
The SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 can be operated as a PROFINET-Controller. Hereby the SINAMICS G120X (PROFINET version) can be controlled by the SIMATIC as PROFINET-Device. This example shows how to do speed control with the drive controlled by the PLC.
In addition to the standard drive functions, using a SIMATIC F-PLC, the (Extended) Safety Integrated Functions of a SINAMICS S210 can be controlled using PROFIsafe.
The platform-independent OPC UA protocol with the companion specifications extension greatly facilitates standardized cross-manufacturer communication and reduces implementation effort.
Using the TIA Portal as an example, the application example describes how you can integrate the SIMATIC CFU into automation systems using the manufacturer-neutral GSDML (General Station Description Markup Language).
The Intelligent Belt application (multi belt control) can be used to pick up sequentially arriving products and to provide them grouped at an unloading position. The most important feature is that loading and unloading are independently performed.
The "LPTO" library enables you to control up to 4 positioning axes of a S7-1200 which is assigned as an IO device to an IO controller (S7-1200 or S7-1500). IO controller and IO device communicate via I-device.
The synchronization modes of the SIMATIC S7-1500(T) are presented in this application example. The synchronous types of gear synchronism and cam synchronism are described in detail and illustrated by means of motion recordings.
Access to the OPC UA Server of a SIMATIC S7-1500 via Excel VBA.
In series machine construction, a project is loaded onto several controllers. The individual parameter assignment of the controllers is achieved via recipes in the retentive load memory. Using the SIMATIC Automation Tool, the bulk filling of series machines (as well as program updates) can be implemented with only one STEP 7 (TIA Portal) project.
In the field of automation, the TCP protocol based on Industrial Ethernet is typically deployed for safe, time non-critical (> 25 ms) and multi-system communication.
The videos in the "Automation Tasks" media system show how easy the latest developments have made it to implement standard automation tasks in less than 10 minutes.
Three SIMIT components for the fail-safe modules are provided. The components FDI and FDQ simulate the behavior of fail-safe F DI and F DQ modules. The component FPME simulates the behavior of the F PM E module of the ET 200SP.
With the Alarm Handling application the alarm, fault and safety messages of SINAMICS drives can be read and added to the alarm display of the SIMATIC S7-1500. The messages are added with the timestamp of the event in the drive and with the message texts of the SINAMICS drive. This provides enormous support for the first fault evaluation at the machine.
This application example serves as a guide for implementing the assignment of variable F communication IDs (DP_DP_IDs). These IDs are required by the F communication blocks "SENDDP" and "RCVDP" for fail-safe data exchange between several F-CPUs and can be assigned variably from STEP 7 Safety V15.1 and changed during runtime.
This example describes three methods for shutting down one or more ET 200SP F-motor starters in a safety-related manner. It uses a fail-safe power module, safety relays or fail-safe input/output modules. All examples meet the requirements of IEC 62061 (SIL3) and ISO 13849-1 (PLe).
SIMATIC Safe Kinematics allows you to monitor kinematic movements safely. This Getting Started shows you exemplary how to commission and configure SIMATIC Safe Kinematics on the control and drive side.
You can control the Safety Integrated Functions of the SINAMICS S120 with a SIMATIC S7-1500F via a PROFIsafe telegram.
A device certificate (end-entity certificate) is required to establish a secure connection to a SIMATIC S7-1500 CPU. A device certificate is, for example, a server certificate for the Web or OPC server.
