The videos in the "Automation Tasks" media system show you how easy the latest developments have made it to implement standard automation tasks in less than 10 minutes.
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.
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 step-by-step guide helps you migrate your fail-safe program from STEP 7 V5.6 to STEP 7 V15.1.
A machine executing dangerous movements is controlled via a fail-safe controller and switched by means of contactors. The correct functioning of the contactors shall be monitored in order to ensure a high diagnostic coverage and, thus, a high SIL or PL.
To protect a machine efficiently against mechanical damage during operation and detect such damages at an early stage, the machine has to be monitored permanently.
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 SLS value is to be specified using a non-safety HMI and transferred to the drive via an F-CPU. As the connection between the HMI and the F-CPU is considered to be non-safe, data corruption could result in an unwanted SLS value being transferred to the F-CPU and then to the drive, which can cause dangerous situations.
Access to the assembly cell is to be protected with a safety light curtain. The objective is to detect in case of a violation of the detection zone (interruption of light curtain) if a workpiece is transported through the light curtain or if it was interrupted by another object.
In case of passivation, the F-I/Os will switched into in the fail-safe state. After fault correction, the F-I/Os can be reintegrated. For the reintegration exists different possibilities and depends on wheter the F-I/Os support the RIOforFA-Safety PROFIsafe profile.
The "LMRTU" block library contains blocks for the communication via Modbus RTU with SIMATIC S7-1200 and S7-1500.
To prevent access to the hazard zone of a machine during operation, a protective door is installed and the position of the protective door is monitored. Since overrunning machine components may cause hazards, the protective door is interlocked and can only be opened after the machine is in standstill.
To prevent access to the danger range of a machine, a protective door is installed. The machine can only be started, if the protective door is closed. If the protective door is opened during operation or if an error is detected, the machine will be shut down safely.
This extensive application example uses a transport solution with rotary table to illustrate various functions and options of SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller.
In order to be able to safely switch of a machine even in an emergency situation, an emergency stop command device is attached and the actuators are controlled via two contactors. The safety function is designed up to PL e in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 62061.
The Burner application example for TIA Portal (Burner library) supports you in the creation of Oil burner, Gas burner and Solid matter burner applications with single or multi-burner.
To create an optimal program regarding technical possibilities and consistency, it is recommended to use the programming guidelines and programming styleguide for SIMATIC S7-1200/1500.
An assembly cell with a robot has two workstations that can alternately be freely accessed by an operator. During operation, the situation changes due to the movement of the robot: The hazardous area becomes the working area and vice versa.
These movements must be safely detected to reliably protect the operator from dangerous machine movements.
This media system provides you with a comprehensive overview of how to implement safety functions with the S7-1200.
