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, S7-1500 CPU and S7-300 CPU / S7-400 CPU.
The enhanced level of automation of industrial plants in order to raise productivity and quality, increases the dependency on the availability of automation systems at the same.
The PROFINET system redundancy allows the assembly of system-redundant systems. The purpose of using fault-tolerant automation systems is to reduce production downtimes, regardless of whether the failures are caused by an error/fault or are due to maintenance work.
Use the prepared and handy faceplates and function blocks of this application example in order to connect the uninterruptible SITOP UPS1600 power supply to your plant. Furthermore, you can find out how you can shut down your plant in a defined state for longer power failures and how to secure process values.
By means of the “device proxy PLC”, you can directly access the SIMATIC controllers configured in the SIMATIC Manager and their current data such as symbols, data blocks and the alarm procedures “Alarm_S”, “Alarm_D” and “SFM”. Or you can work with WinCC (TIA Portal) and STEP 7 (TIA Portal) in separate projects. GSDML files are available for download ("Direct button” function).
By now, TCP/IP-based Open User Communication (OUC) is the standard for communication with SIMATIC S7-CPUs.
This article will show you the ways of connecting operator devices with a SIMATIC S7-400H controller. The article will demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of different methods and explain the configuration steps.
The Excel tool gives you the ability to generate a customized estimate of the AS communication load, verify the quality of the communication activity using the results, or enact measures to optimize it.
SIMATIC S7 stations also allow the use of email as the default mechanism for transmitting error conditions or warnings from industrial plants to a control center or operating staff.
In this application example the SINAMICS G120 (F variant) is connected fail-safe with the S7 F Systems Library V1.3 to a CPU 410-5H via PROFIsafe communication. The connection via PROFIBUS and PROFINET is described in two documents.
This migration guide contains recommendations and notes for users who are currently using SIMATIC S7-300/400 automation systems and plan to migrate to the new SIMATIC controller generation S7-1500.
This application supports in integrating the Weihenstephan Standards into SIMATIC controllers and the motion control system SIMOTION. The Weihenstephan Standards (WS) define a universal communication interface for connecting machines to higher level data acquisition systems or MES (Manufacturing Execution systems). They also define the data which must be provided for acquisition.
The basic objective of this application example is to use the formal design methods based on state graphs or Petri nets for the specifications of control processes within a systematic control design. Based on this, all sequence controls should be implemented using the SIMATIC S7 Safety Matrix Engineering Tool and converted into a fail-safe control code.
In the field of automation, the TCP protocol based on Industrial Ethernet is typically deployed for safe, time non-critical (> 25 ms) and multi-system communication.
The PROFINET CPUs of the automation systems SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 and S7-300/400 and WinAC RTX can only be configured as NTP clients for time synchronization. With this library you can turn a SIMATIC S7 CPU into an SNTP server and thus realize a simple time synchronization of automation cells.
This entry explains the I-device function and gives an overview of the various tasks that can be realized with it. These functions are explained in configuration and application examples.
Monitoring and automatic connection switchover for up to four lower-level connections based on the TCON blocks of Open User Communication.
The SINAMICS XML Parser supports you in displaying SINAMICS error messages in plain text directly on your HMI operator panel.
The SITOP PSE200U selectivity module with single-channel signaling enables you to monitor 24V load circuits.
The application example Burner Technology for S7 F Systems (Burner library) supports you in the creation of Oil burner, Gas burner and Solid matter burner applications with single or multi burner.
