New features and products coming with V14 that will be on show include:
Offering detailed plant and machine monitoring with minimal configuration and visualisation costs and provides support thanks to automated code generation and synchronization of HMI/SCADA devices.
SIMATIC S7-1500T & SINAMICS V90
The new Simatic S7-1500 T-CPU controller handles the control tasks and the new Sinamics V90 servo drive system with Profinet brings the required speed and precision into the machine. The new package now enables Simatic users to solve advanced motion control tasks, such as gearing and camming, in a familiar environment
The new multi-user function is applied for decentralized work concepts. This provides several operatives with efficient and simultaneous access to a server project, based on automatic synchronization, facilitating device, object and function-based organization of automation tasks.
The SIMATIC Visualisation Architect is a new option that allows you to automatically generate your fully configured HMI screens from your PLC code
The Simatic Energy Suite facilitates easy parameter assignment and evaluation of many measuring components, with the requisite control program being generated simply by pressing a button. The Simatic Energy Suite increases the transparency of energy flows and helps to save energy in accordance with ISO 50001. The energy data is easily acquired, and integrated into the automation solution
WinCC/WebUX help not only to monitor plant processes but also, if necessary, to control them via the Internet or intranet via mobile HMI devices, such as tablet PCs and smartphones. The process data are available worldwide providing easy access to the machine. The TIA Portal V14 now gives all Simatic S7-1500 controllers OPC UA server functionality, such as for standardized connections to a Manufacturing Execution System for vertical plant integration.
The event will also be providing updates on all our usual topics, such as Safety, WinCC SCADA and the latest innovations our Control Products range, SIRIUS - such as the new ET200SP Motor Starters!
With Safety Integrated, we provide the intelligent solution to the ever-increasing demand for functional safety in machines and plants. New features within TIA Safety Advanced V14 include Know-How-Protection for S7-1x00F blocks, Shared Device for Failsafe, Multiuser Support and more usability improvements.
