Displaying devices on the PROFIBUS DP / PA for TDC / FM with fault diagnosis.
The operator of a control center has access to all status information and parameters for the process to be controlled. However, the ability to recognize the status of the slaves connected to the PROFIBUS is also important for availability and stability. Currently additional engineering tools are required to obtain this information.
We offer a complete system diagnosis for the slaves connected to the PROFIBUS as part of our SIMATIC Add Ons. This makes it possible to display the status of the control system directly in a control room based on SIMATIC PCS 7 / WinCC.
After planning a diagnosis environment, your WinCC control station is able to deliver detailed information about the individual slaves.
Eliminating the need for additional engineering tools
Small number of simple project planning steps
Simple updating of changes in the hardware configuration at any time and online in WinCC
Fast, reliable availability of all relevant information about the planned slaves
Diagnosis is not dependent on any engineering tools during the run time
Visualization of all DP / PA slaves known in STEP 7
Future-proof thanks to the use of standard interfaces (protection of investment)
Independent of the control / monitoring application due to the use of ActiveX components
Call up the diagnosis module in the TDC / FM program
Export the hardware configuration (cfg file)
Transfer the module variables to WinCC (AS-OS transfer)
Insert the Diagnosis OCX in the WinCC display
Link the transferred module variables to the Diagnosis OCX
Specify the storage path of the exported HW configuration (cfg file)
Once you have planned the diagnosis system, the engineering environment is no longer necessary.
