Siemens. Simatic S7. Manuals and Guides. Presented By: Siemens Supply. For Product Needs Please Visit: OR email. SIEMENS. Following is the UP-Counter logic, step by step explained with See http://bincom/Siemens-Training/ PDF generated on Feb How To. Siemens S7 PLC catalogue. This document contains the list of Siemens S7 components to be used within Plant.

The first thing I like to do with a new product is get an overview of everything. Getting used to part numbers and product groupings can go a long way with your comfort level.

The best thing for this is the sales catalog ST 70 — You can also order a hard copy. What more could you want? These are very professionally done with a nice sounding narrator to take you through all the basics of the Step 7 software and hardware.

Of all the starting places to dig for more info I find the support section the best especially if you have a part number or key word you can search on. Clicking on the Product Support link will bring up a tree on the left hand side that can be expanded down to the product of your affection. Good luck and happy hunting.

No networking whatsoever. No support for multi-projects or HMI integration. No communication processors CP or function modules FM supported.

So there are quite a few major limitations with the Step 7 Lite software which may end your further reading of this review. It has the same level of programming functionality as the regular Step 7 packages plus some nifty interface enhancements to make it easier on the eyes and on the brain.

Since the packages bear a lot of similarities it will also be easy for the student to transfer any learning on the Lite package over to STEP 7. The overall aim of the Lite package was to make the interface easier for new users.

The added graphics and color are a welcome addition. Another nice friendly feature is the extended hover help on the menus and icons where clicking on the tool tip expands it into more help text.

On that note all the pop up dialogs are clearer then its STEP 7 counterpart. One of the major differences can be seen on the left hand side window.

Siemens SIMATIC Step 7 Programmer's Handbook

Pretty much everything the programmer needs for maintaining the project is neatly organized here. On the right hand side is the old familiar tree structure of commands and blocks. The FC and FB blocks have been moved from here to a more logical place in the project window on the left hand side. The Project Window below it is great. Something that just thrilled me is the tabs below that separate the offline and online versions of the program.

On the regular STEP 7 software there is often a confusion between when you are offline or online.

STEP 7 Lite minimizes that confusion by also provided clearly differentiated color schemes for when you have a block open online. You can just hover the mouse over the symbol to get more detail. You can drag and drop then anywhere in the list.

This could be really helpful for logically grouping blocks in larger projects. I also like the new way of creating blocks. Even the OB selection has a nice drop down box of all the OBs available with its symbolic name.

The Hardware Manager The greatest change of all is the overhauled hardware manager.

The layout is great and is to be expected without the need to factor in networking. Just drag and drop your hardware on the picture and away you go. Much of the editor is like its big sister STEP 7. One part I like is a slight revamp of the declaration table. That means no having to dig through the tree just to see all the declaration variables. Hopefully some of the better implementations will find there way into the STEP 7 software. One little caveat is that it kept crashing on my plenty beefy enough Windows XP Home computer.

Save often, arrgh! These cables can piggyback on existing connectors. Be aware that the PC Adapter draws its power to work from the connection port so check the power LED for proper operation. The CP card draws its power from the computer. With the programming cable plugged in, you can check for proper operation by clicking on the Accessible Nodes icon.

If communications are successful, you'll see a window pop up similar to the one below. If so, then close the Accessible Nodes window and proceed to the download or upload section. This indicates that the cable is not in the right computer port or the cable is not plugged in properly. In order to start communication to the PLC you will need to match the "PG Interface" setting with the programming cable and protocol. The following dialog box will open up displaying all the different interfaces i.

Each cable has its own interface. Be careful not to select your wireless Ethernet connection. To get it working quickly it is best to select the interface with the Auto designation.

This will discover working settings and use them automatically. It should not conflict with existing PLC and slave devices on the network. Also, check under the Local Connection tab and make sure connection selection matches the port the cable is connected into. Once the proper interface is selected and the properties are set then click OK and use the Accessible Nodes window to check for successful communications.

It should work. If not double-check the connection and cable. First, in order to enable the download menu commands, you must select the Block folder in the project's station you wish to download.

Partial downloads are used in existing projects where only one or more blocks will be downloaded. Holding down the Ctrl key or the Shift key allows more then one block to be selected at a time. Be careful though as the order of download will occur in the order that the blocks were selected. This may mean that an error will occur if a block is called before it is downloaded.

This is usually not necessary in a PLC that has all ready had its hardware configured. If you do download the system data, the following messages will prompt you through the transitions. The software will do the Run to Stop transition when you click OK.

Click on the Download icon. You will be prompted to overwrite any existing blocks and if you want to load the system data see above. The partial and full download methods above will overwrite existing blocks but will not any blocks from memory.

The following dialog box will pop up prompting you about the deletion of all the blocks and project data in the PLC. Click Yes to perform the operation. There are two methods for uploading.

The first is when you have the original project and you want to preserve the symbols and comments. The second method, when you don't have the original project, will upload everything from the CPU but will have no associated documentation i. This will open up another window called the Online Partner. It shows the existing blocks inside the CPU. The Online version is indicated by the highlighted title bar. There is a connection between these two versions so that uploading from the online partner makes sure to preserve all the symbols and comments.

Be careful. After uploading, make sure to close the online partner and do all work from the offline version. For a full upload, select the Block folder and do the same.

Follow these steps when you do not have the original project but wish to upload the program for backup purposes. In the next screen, fill in the slot the CPU is in this is always 2 for S and the node address of the communication port on the CPU. After clicking OK, the whole contents of the PLC including all blocks and hardware configuration will be uploaded into a new station in the project.

While this project contains no documentation, it can be used as a backup to download later if needed. System diagnostics, r eport system fault, integrated process fault diagnostics in S7-Graph. Sound familiar? Have you suddenly found changes that have been made in the PLC but not in the offline program?

Nobody knows what happened. The problems stem from the flexibility of the software both for downloading and editing the online program. How to solve this problem? After that is a step by step best practice when editing programs.

Offline program — The program that is stored on the hard disk of the computer. This will contain the documentation. Download — The act of taking the offline program on the computer and downloading it into the PLC.

Upload — Taking the program in the PLC and bringing it up to the computer. Doing this without having the associated offline program open will cause a loss of documentation.

Save — Stores the open block onto the hard drive. Note that this only saves the opened block and not any others that are concurrently open. Nodes — Refers to any programmable device in our case a PLC in the network which will have its own unique address. The best practice is to make sure you are working from an offline file. Of course, this assumes that you have a good working copy to begin with. So where do some people get lost? Here are some common mistakes and their warning signs.

This is an example void of documentation. Notice the local parameters all say TEMP. There are no comments or titles.

The properly documented copy looks like this Opening blocks from here uploads it straight from the PLC and produces the warnings dialog boxes shown above. Once a project is open and a connection to a PLC is established then selecting the Online button menu View Online brings up a similar project tree showing the contents inside the PLC. The window title bar is highlighted in blue to indicate its online status. Working from this window presents less of a danger for losing documentation but it is confusing and could lead to problems.

For instance if a block is renamed offline and then the old one is opened online then it will have no associated documentation. The proper way to view a block online is to open the block and select the Establish Connection to Configured CPU icon.

Just make sure what you are viewing has been downloaded to the PLC. Essentially this puts you in the same place as pitfall 2. Always working from the offline copy will make it less likely to screw up. Opening up a block from the accessible nodes window is always a no-no. Likewise, opening a block from a window that has a highlighted blue title bar will also cause potential problems. Avoid the pitfalls and keep that documentation. Mystery solved. These warnings are especially crucial if you are working on real machinery.

Click the General tab and press the Activate button. I couldn't find a complete listing of all the function blocks in the standard Siemens S7 Libraries so I made one myself. It helps me get a better overview of what is available. The complete listing is also available as an Excel spreadsheet so you can sort or adjust to your needs.

Otherwise known as Siemens speak. Here's a list of Siemens specific abbreviations and their meanings. The following is provided by Automation Training from their excellent Siemens Step 7 training manual. This is a really nice explanation of a difficult but important subject. Check out their website for hands-on and online training classes. When a direct addressed is referenced by an instruction there is no question as to the location in memory.

The following are examples of direct addressing:. By using the methods of indirect addressing the address used by an instruction can be varied to point to any number of locations. While this may increase the difficulty of troubleshooting, its advantage is to greatly reduce the number of networks and instructions needed to control a process. It is also a method that must be understood to use some of the library and system function calls provided by Siemens. A pointer is always preceded by a P symbol.

The pointer address may be in three different formats. The ANY data type is used to pass a parameter of an unknown or undefined data type. Some functions in the library use the ANY data type to work on whole sections of memory.

To do this, the last pointer method is used to describe an area.

For example the address P DB DBX 0. When working with indirect addressing it is sometimes needed to first of all open a DB and then begin working on the address without directly referring to any one DB. This is done using the OPN instruction. Furthermore, there are instructions to confirm that the correct DB number is opened and that it is large enough for the next operation. The first method of indirect addressing is called memory indirect addressing because it allows for a memory location M, DB or L to determine or point to another.

Two examples are as follows:. Since the bit position only goes to eight the result of P 8. Besides the regular accumulators, there are two bit address registers AR1, AR2 for storing pointers used in register indirect addressing methods.

A series of different load and transfer type instructions can be used to work with AR1. A similar set is available for AR2.

The area-internal register indirect addressing method uses one of the address registers plus a pointer to determine the address the instruction is to reference. The format is:. The address register must be previously loaded with a double word pointer without reference to the address identifier.

The exact address is determined by adding the address register with the pointer. The example below shows the area-internal method using bit locations. Area-crossing register indirect addressing is similar to the area-internal method except the pointer loaded into the address register references a memory area e.

This means the address identifier used before the opening bracket is not needed if referencing a bit otherwise it will be a B for byte, W for word or D for double. The example below shows the area-crossing method using bit locations.

The RLO bit stores the running logic state of the currently processing instructions. If you are used to ladder logic and struggling to understand the purpose of the RLO and STA it may help to visualize a rung like below. The OV bit is set by a math instruction with floating point numbers after a fault has occurred overflow, illegal operation, comparison unordered.

The OV bit is reset when the fault is eliminated.


The Binary Result transfers the result of the operations onto the next instruction for reference. The programming is done with very simple mnemonics that can be hard to remember if you don't use it very often.

These cheat sheets provide a quick reference guide for all the instructions and formatting. They are two pages long but if you can print on the front and back then they make for a nice one sheet reference. PDF KB. Close all other running applications, including any antivirus software you may be running. This step involves using the Commissioning Wizard to configure the software you installed in the previous step.

When your system restarts after the software has been installed, your system's hardware configuration is scanned. Kaoma for the guidance during the preparation phase. My acknowledgements will be incomplete without thanking the people that directly supervised me and gave me the valuable experience that I now have. So in that regard, I would like to thank my supervisor Dip.

Peter Sahm and BSc. Pawel Malicki for their direct supervision. Particulars of intern: Jasper V. Hatilima jasperhatilima yahoo. The global aims of the internship are: i.

Academic exchange between German and Zambian universities, in this case University of Siegen and University of Zambia. Learn from Germany, specifically University of Siegen, the approach used in bridging the gap between the skills from the university graduates and the requirements by the industry. My supervisor used the global objectives above to come up with specific objectives that could be measured and tracked and used to give an indication of overall progress.

These include: 1. To have at least one industrial visit to see the actual application of automation and robotics in German industries. The above tasks were done successfully i. The rest of the report therefore outlines the actual works done, the achievements, some conclusions and a few suggestions for my home institution, the University of Zambia, based on the experience gained during the CoGL internship.

PLC Programming September Tic-Tac-Toe Game Networking the PLC October Industrial Visit and other learning Points Figures Pictures Recommendations and Next Step Appendix A: Components Used in the Project PLC Programming September A Programmable Logic Controller PLC , Speicherprogrammierbare Steuerung SPS , is a digital controller that is used in automation of processes such as industrial production lines automatic assembly, automatic welding, automatic painting , amusement rides, etc.

It can be regarded as a microcontroller in a box on which a lot of optimization work has been done to make it scalable, more universal and resistant to EMI, dust, temperature, moisture and vibrations. For Siemens, these languages can be selected from within the development environments provided by Siemens i. The player who succeeds to place three respective marks in a row wins the game. One of the objectives in his paper was to implement Tic-Tac-Toe game on a PLC and use the game to pack work-pieces in racks similar to selection of a square in the Tic-Tac-Toe grid i.

Our project therefore continues on this previously done Tic-Tac-Toe game in [1]. This counter was obtained by summing up all the data block entries and getting Modulus 6 of the total. FC4 checks if the robot has sent a ready pulse M2. If the above are true, the FC1 block called from FC4 allows the player to move and sets the correct bits from the Q0. It also sets the Q1. As the robot is still drawing, FC8, called from within FC4, does the combination evaluation by taking sums of the winning lines.

It stores the summation results in the DB1 block. FC7 is then called from within FC4 to check if there is a winner. In FC3, this flag from the robot I0. The flag then goes off since it is a finite pulse , but M2. This too is done from within FC4. But additionally, this computer move is also conditioned with I0. This is similar to the visual aid M2. A list of all the symbols used is included in the appendix describing each variable.

And then a number of automation communication protocols are defined for use on these ports e. It requires less wiring compared to conventional wiring and creates very scalable control networks. In this case the master being the CPU DP PLC and the desired slave must be dragged from the drop down list of the standard slaves and dropped into the table for the master system.

The input byte and output byte addresses are automatically assigned as I Address and Q Address respectively in the table. In our user program, selection of a Tic-Tac-Toe cell in the playing grid activated one of the coils from Q0. For the inputs, two bits were used, I0. LDB file in the Simatic Manager windows. Ldb 5 but nothing has to be configured inside the LDB file itself as it will not be used.

The rest of the parameters under this slave section can be left as default or can be changed depending on application. INI file. Since the CP card is used as a slave module, the remote address has to be used. What means is that the KRC should be sending and receiving data through the slave port of CP from the Master device. Addresses 1 to are for accessing slave 6 devices connected to the slave port of the CP The 0 means the offset from byte 10 and the multiplier x2 means the number of bytes that it should write to.The compress function does not work in the RUN mode mode selector setting write protection!

After clicking OK, the whole contents of the PLC including all blocks and hardware configuration will be uploaded into a new station in the project. P DBX 0. Muchas gracias.

So in that regard, I would like to thank my supervisor Dip. Much of the editor is like its big sister STEP 7. One little caveat is that it kept crashing on my plenty beefy enough Windows XP Home computer. No programming device or operator interface are shown in this simple example.
