Simple drive and motion control can be a huge benefit for any engineer because you can quickly and efficiently add standard drives and motion to your application.
You can replace the above-mentioned systems in function with the modules of the ET 200SP, because the modules of the ET 200B / ET 200L and ET 200L-SC can no longer be ordered. The modules of the ET 200L are available as spare parts until September 30, 2022.
Library with function blocks 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
In STEP 7 (TIA Portal), before you can select the hardware interface for the encoder under technology objects, you have to enable the HSC in the CPU properties.
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.
With Multiuser Engineering in TIA Portal, you can work together with several other users on a project at the same time. Due to parallel editing of different objects within a multiuser project, configuration times can be reduced significantly.
The attached project and description give you a current example of communication via MODBUS RTU between two SIMATIC S7-1200 controllers.
Attached are the latest Support Packages for several TIA Portal versions ready for downloading.
TIA Portal does the assigning and changing of block numbers for you.
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.
This entry provides a function block for diagnosing channel errors in the central configuration or in an IO module connected via PROFINET IO. This block uses the "RALRM" instruction.
Status January 2017: Update 2
If you get the message given in the header when downloading a project, one possible cause is that there is a difference between the versions.
If you do not yet have a version of STEP 7 installed on your computer, you need the full license for STEP 7 Professional / Basic V14. If you already have a version of STEP 7 installed on your PC, you need either the license for the upgrade or for the PowerPack.
The library "LGF (Library of general functions)" contains additional functions for STEP 7 (TIA Portal).
Get in touch with Technical Support if your license key or authorization is defective.
In order to configure the devices provided by the manufacturer in the device configuration you have to install the GSD file (general station description file) beforehand in STEP 7 (TIA Portal).
With the "ClockAlarm" function, it is possible to schedule events once, or by the year, month, day, hour, minute or second.
When you open a project and get the message indicating that you cannot work fully with the project, then options packages that you need for processing your project are missing.
In automation technology, there are many fast events that cannot be detected in the program cycle of the main OB. The high-speed counters (HSC) of the S7-1200 help you to process even those events.
