SNMP blocks for SIMATIC S7-PN CPUs for monitoring, controlling and configuration of SNMP capable network components.
Curated video collection on industrial communication, identification and localization.
The "LPNDR" block library includes several function blocks. With these you can read various device and status information from a PROFINET device and describe parameters.
A LOGO! 8 regulates the pressure of a cooling water system by means of controlling a pump. On a display all associated operating data are shown. The set value can be adjusted on the display. The water pressure and the level in the storage tank are measured with appropriate sensors.
The Service Bridge is a specially configured switch that allows dedicated temporary access from the plant bus to the fieldbus, while ensuring the logical separation between the fieldbuses. In this entry, you will find the instructions for configuring a SCALANCE XC-200 switch as Service Bridge as well as the prepared configuration files.
Our Cybersecurity Program outlined in this document encompasses all relevant processes and information. Each section of the document summarizes the main aspects of each area, and collectively form the Cybersecurity Program.
To make diagnostic in automation technology, there are numerous different procedures. This document gives you an overview of the options available for diagnosing a SIMATIC controller or a SCALANCE network device, networks and communication.
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.
This application example is used as introduction to the ident function of the S7-1200 by means of RF120C and as RFID extension of the application example 82454336 (set 6).
To increase the network's stability, a larger physical network is split into several smaller virtual units using the "Virtual Local Area Network" (VLAN) function.
This application example describes the deterministic data exchange of a S7-1200 controller with several SENTRON PAC3200 power monitoring device via Modbus/TCP. The communication with the individual measuring devices takes place successively via a connection.
In terms of security operation, some security-relevant settings should be made at the SCALANCE device to prevent unauthorized access via the network. This checklist will help you with implementation.

Besides the cyclically exchanged control and status signals, SIMOCODE pro V PN provides a wide range of data records which can be read or written acyclically.
To ensure high plant availability, the devices are connected with each other in an MRP ring (Media Redundancy Protocol). As a result, the remaining devices are still accessible in the event of a device or line failure.
Use of the redundancy protocol RSTP (“Rapid Spanning TRee”) for setting up a redundant meshed network with SCALANCE X.
Application of Siemens’ proprietary ring redundancy protocols called “High Speed Redundancy” (HRP) and “Standby Link” in order to increase network availability in ring topologies. HRP is intended to increase the network availability in ring topologies and ensures loop-free communication.
The SCALANCE switches of the XB-200 series, the W761 access point and the W72x client modules do not feature a C-PLUG slot for backing up configuration data. An alternative is to automatically save the configuration data in the controller.
Modern automation infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex. The individual stations and components are increasingly networked and develop continuously. The more complex the networks become, the more central maintainability gains on importance.
