This Getting Started helps you to become familiar with essential steps for performing virtual commissioning with the SIMATIC Machine Simulator based on a specific application example.
Use the rapidly applicable faceplates and function blocks in this sample application to connect the controllable power supply SITOP PSU8600 to your plant. Information is also given about how to control the power supply with your PLC.
Taking an example we will show you how to change the SUS contract data in OSD.
With the help of SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM Advanced virtual controllers for the simulation of a S7-1500 or ET 200SP CPU are created and used for the comprehensive simulation of functions. This means that no real controllers are required to test a STEP 7 program.
Monitoring machines and plants plays an increasingly important role in automation technology. The ProDiag functionality integrated in TIA Portal allows you to configure custom monitoring for your machine or plant, which also enables you to diagnose faults in the process.
Many applications in the area of manufacturing and process technology have sequential structures. Do you have sequential processes that must executed in sequential processing steps? Through use of sequence cascades with GRAPH your automation solution is considerably facilitated.
This filling plant offers you the selection of the product via recipes, weight control via SIWAREX and logging via data logging with access via the integrated web server of the S7-1200.
We will take an example to show you how to unlock a delivery note so that the download is available for you.
Diagnostics reduces downtimes and thus contributes to increasing the productivity of the machine. Diagnostics supports over the entire lifecycle of a machine, from planning to operation and maintenance. Diagnostics essentially comprises the diagnosis of all system components, the monitoring of process sequences and the diagnosis of program errors.
Attached are the latest Support Packages for several TIA Portal versions ready for downloading.
This application example describes how to connect your EC fans from ebm-papst to a SIMATIC S7-1200 via Modbus RTU and how to monitor and control it from an operator panel.

In STEP 7 (TIA Portal) you program the diagnostic error interrupt OB and enable the necessary functions for the module to be diagnosed.
For this you have to call and parameterize the instructions "MOVE" and "CTRL_PWM" in your program. You enable the pulse generator in the device configuration.
Unlike the browser, the data in the AJAX request is not decoded automatically. In this case you have to decode the data yourself as shown in the following example.
You can use the CAx download manager to access the latest product data for your CAD or CAE system.
The library "LGF (Library of general functions)" contains additional functions for STEP 7 (TIA Portal).
The standardization guide shows you how you can modularize your machines and systems. It gives you recommendations and hints for structured and standardized programming of your automation solutions.
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.
You open the libraries in the TIA Portal via the toolbar in the "Libraries" task card.
