An overview shows the properties, advantages and special features of the protocols TCP, ISO-on-TCP, UDP and ISO Transport.
There are prepared function blocks in the "SINAMICS DriveLib" library for triggering various functions of the SINAMICS S120. Also located in the library is the function block "SINA_INFEED" via which the SINAMICS S120 line module can be triggered.
This article contains a statement on the input extension of a fail-safe controller with 3SK1
In an automation system, a communication processor (CP) can only be operated with a CPU. In the system test, the relevant CPUs are tested with the separate Ethernet CPs and released accordingly.
Synchronize the system time of your HMI operator panel with the system time of your S7-1200 CPU by configuring tags and blocks and incorporating the configuration in your HMI operator panel.
Load the software from the CPU into your PG. For this you create a new project and configure an unspecified CPU.
This entry provides comprehensive documentation on making the change from a CPU 41x to a CPU 410-5H. It also includes basic information about updating/upgrading the PCS 7 software plus the Hardware Upgrade Package "HUP CPU410-5H".
The Compatibility Tool is a function provided by the Industry Online Support with which you can select compatible software products or check the compatibility of existing configurations.
The SIMATIC Assessment Suite - Data Collector (SAS-DC) - formerly known as SIMATIC Diagnostics Tool (SDT) - enables you to simply and easily collect diagnostics and system information from computers or other devices.
If you are using a software controller on a SIMATIC IPC without NVRAM, it might happen that if the IPC is not shut down properly, there is data loss, the absolute value encoder adjustment, for example.
To create new TIA Portal projects or to migrate projects from earlier versions you must first check that the available hardware components are supported by the current version of TIA Portal.
With S7-PLCSIM V5.4 SP3 (or higher) you can simulate a communication between two S7-400 CPU modules in a STEP 7 (TIA Portal) project.
The SINAMICS drives do not support hardware interrupts. The "Hardware interrupt triggers" field is displayed by STEP 7 also with SINAMICS drives, but it has no function.
If, for the AS-AS communication via the F communication blocks (F_SENDBO / F_RCVBO, F_SENDR / F_RCVR and F_SDS_BO / F_RDS_BO), you are using an Ethernet network with ring topology with non-switching (bumpless) redundancy (HRP "High Speed Redundancy Protocol", for example, Entry ID: 109739600), packages might be lost if there is an error in the ring.
When 'direct synchronous setting' is performed for a slave axis with the aid of the "MC_CamIn" motion control function in camming using the "SyncProfileReference" = 2 parameter setting, the cam is offset based on the current positions of the two axes and the two axes are synchronized immediately.
Interface-compatible operator panels and storage media.
This FAQ describes how to use Siemens Eplan macros with placeholder objects in Eplan electric P8.
Silent installation of the SITOP UPS Manager allows administrators to automate the installation of the UPS software, aiding integration of UPS technology in the serial production of machines.
This entry contains information about voltage peaks at switching off the running motor.
The new lithium iron phosphate batteries used in the UPS1100 5Ah LiFePO4 has many benefits over the common lead-acid variants. With these advantages comes a few tips on how the lithium batteries are to be shipped, charged and protected.
