When implementing operating mode selection with functional safety, questions frequently arise regarding the requirements to be implemented. This application example is based on a practical safety concept - which is frequently used.
SIMATIC S7-1200 can be operated as PROFINET controller as well as PROFIBUS master (with CM 1243-5). A SINAMICS G110M or G120 shall be connected as as PROFINET device or as PROFIBUS slave. The PLC shall have read/write access to the process data and parameters of the drive.
An introduction to IP based remote Networks and to the related product range of Siemens. For the possible configurations of an IP based remote network there is an overview along with the requirements and the link to the configuration description.
It is often the small tools that make work easier. This entry contains some useful tools that you can easily integrate into your HMI configuration via libraries. For example, a stopwatch, a file explorer or also a calculator, .... The toolbox for HMI projects currently offers 28 tools already and is continuously expanded.
The SITOP PSE200U selectivity module with single-channel signaling enables you to monitor 24V load circuits.
In most cases, high-speed counters are used in conjunction with a rotary encoder to measure motor speed or the distance or length of workpieces on a conveyor belt. Using the following example, the length and speed measurement is shown strikingly by the high-speed counters, by the simplest means, such as the integrated PWM generator of the S7-1200 and light barriers.
An automation structure contains a SIMATIC S7-1200 sub-station that communicates wirelessly with a central station via the internet and is monitored and controlled by a service operator via remote access.
With the application example drive parameter sets of the V90PN can be saved to a SIMATIC S7-1200 and then subsequently send back to the drive.
With the RF120C communication module you can integrate SIMATIC RF300 readers in a proprietary manner into a S7-1200 control system. The S7 block “ident blocks" or “ident profile" are used to control this configuration.
With the RF120C communication module you can integrate proprietary SIMATIC RF200 readers into a S7-1200 control system. The S7 block “ident blocks" or “ident profile" are used to control this configuration.
The PROFINET CPUs S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, and S7-1500 can only be configured as NTP clients for time synchronization. With this STEP 7 library you can turn a SIMATIC S7 CPU into an SNTP server and thus realize a simple time synchronization of automation cells.
The standard libraries LAcycCom for SIMATIC S7-1200/S7-1500 and LDPV1 for SIMOTION provide a collision-free coordination of communication resources in the CPU for acyclic data exchange via DPV1 services. Therefore the corresponding functions in these libraries have to be used in the application instead of the existing system functions for the communication with external devices.
The ProjectGenerator can be used to quickly and easily create SIMOTION SCOUT (STEP 7 V5.x) projects. This includes SIMOTION CPUs, SINAMICS topologies, configuration and interconnection of technology objects and handling of software modules according to machine equipment modules. Also libraries and modules in existing projects can be updated.
The library „Library Motion Control SINAMICS“ – LMCSINA provides the control of the DCB extension based synchronism applications available for SINAMICS S120 as well as for the applications “Flying Saw”, “Cross-cutter”, "Winder" and "Line Tension Control".
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.
It is important to estimate the response times in a system made up of controllers, distributed IO, PCs or also components of the industrial identification already during the planning phase of a plant. With measured performance data on industrial communication with SIMATIC S 7 components, you receive secure statements here.
SIMATIC offers a versatile range of RFID systems for effective identification in production technology. In order to make the right choice in the concept phase of an RFID system, it is important to be able to assess the communication performance of a planned SIMATIC configuration.
The TIA Portal Tutorial Center is a media system with various videos which gives you an overview of the general functions and tools of the TIA Portal.
A SIMATIC S7-1200 station shall be used to send important messages as SMS message to mobile maintenance staff via the CP 1242-7 GPRS V2.
Block library for controlling the SIPLUS HCS4x00 heating control system as PROFINET IO device or as PROFIBUS DP slave on a SIMATIC S7-1200 or S7-1500
