When establishing a connection to an OPC UA server you should observe a number of points to make the process run smoothly.
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.
Attached are the latest Support Packages for several TIA Portal versions ready for downloading.
Marking for the Restricted Use of Hazardous Substances in Electronic and Electrical Products (SJ/T 11364-2014) RoHS China
Absence of Lacquer-Wetting Substances (LABS) SITOP Power Supply; SITOP UPS LABS
Power loss calculation for the right design of system cabinets
It is necessary to know the access strings (node IDs) of the relevant data points to read and write values of a OPC UA server. The client needs these to query and influence the required data correctly from the server.
Discover without time-consuming searching in the manuals the forms in which SIMATIC HMI products and SITOP products support OPC UA.
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.
With this tool, commissioning, engineering and monitoring of SITOP power supplies with communication capabilities can be executed, independent of engineering frameworks like SIMATIC TIA Portal or SIMATIC PCS 7. As of now, the SITOP Manager is available for download.
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.
If you are using the SITOP PSU8600 V1.4 together with a SITOP BUF8600 4s/40A V1.4 or SITOP BUF8600 10s/40A V1.4, these modules should not be operated in Compatibility mode if the configuration is less than V1.4.
For the SITOP-Anniversary Packages the product discontinuation is scheduled to take place on the 31st of December 2018.
SITOP Library for SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.1 with SP1, SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.2, SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 and SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 with SP1
With effect from 31 October 2018, the Anniversary Packages 25 Years of SITOP are declared phase-out products and active marketing is stopped.
Due to the new hardware and firmware versions the SITOP PSU8600 power supply system and the SITOP UPS1600 uninterruptible power supply with PROFINET interface are no longer included in the hardware catalog of various versions of TIA Portal and therefore have to be retro-installed via a hardware support package (HSP).
The SITOP Manager is a software tool for commissioning, engineering and monitoring existing and future SITOP devices with communications interface in a customer network in online and offline mode.
With SITOP Manager you can commission, configure, parameterize and monitor communicating SITOP power supply units independent of the Engineering software like STEP 7 or SIMATIC PCS 7.
