The energy consumption of street lights can be monitored by means of a LOGO! 8 connected to an energy meter. If the energy consumption is above or short of a certain value, a warning message is sent by the LOGO! CMR via SMS. In addition, it is possible at any time to request the current energy consumption via SMS.
The lighting is controlled by LOGO! 8. This is connected to a LOGO! CMR. By selecting different operating modes, you decide whether the lighting is switched on or off at sunset or sunrise. In addition, it is possible to manually enter a switch-on or switch-off time for the lighting via SMS or locally onsite.
You would like to monitor the filling level of a storage tank which is to be filled automatically. This application demonstrates by the following example how you can configure an automatic filling level monitoring based on LOGO! ...
The LOGO! 8 controller together with further LOGO! 8 controllers is used to control and monitor various functions in houses or other buildings. A smartphone can be used to monitor and control the house functions via WLAN.
A building is to be supplied with a continuous supply of service water. With LOGO! 8 a pump control for a cistern is implemented.
Control of a sliding gate with LOGO! 8 via a reversing contactor
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.
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 29 tools already and is continuously expanded.
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.
PRONETA is a free tool for the analysis and configuration of PROFINET networks with special support for ET 200 distributed IO. The IO Test can provide support with the quick and comfortable examination and documentation of a plant's wiring.
The diagnostics of devices, modules and networks play an ever-increasing role in automation technology. By diagnosing with a user program, faulty modules can be detected. This enables you to also program responses to diagnostic messages.
The SITOP PSU6200 power supply has a diagnostic interface "COM" whose signal can be evaluated via a digital input in a higher-level controller, e.g. S7-1200 CPU and S7-1500 CPU.
The reliable 24V power supply is an important factor in high plant availability during the operation of SIMATIC PCS 7. You implement DC power supply of the automation technology using preferred SITOP power supply concepts for redundancy, buffering and selectivity. Further is it possible to monitor and operate it on the PCS 7-OS.
The house control application example (set 9) is expanded by a SIMATIC HMI Touch Panel KTP700 Basic. House functions can easily be controlled and monitored with the central Touch Panel. The color display of the touch panel can be modified individually.
With LOGO! 8, data can be exchanged between several LOGO! modules via network communicaiton. In the application, a weather station is connected to an existing house automation with a LOGO! 8 and a Touch Panel. Depending in the weather data, various house functions are controlled automatically and weather warnings are generated.
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
If you want to store and process only few, essential PLC data on PCs, then you will get with this example a convenient alternative. This application shows you how the production data of all common S7 CPUs can be stored directly in the files of a Windows computer.
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.
Overview and capabilities of OPC UA in connection with the SITOP PSU8600 modular power supply system and the UPS1600 uninterrupted power supply.
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.
