Machine and plant diagnostics for increased availability
SIMATIC ProDiag is the fully-integrated TIA solution for machine and plant diagnostics. It saves the need for programming diagnostics in the CPU during the engineering phase and provides support for troubleshooting on the HMI. ProDiag makes it possible to monitor a machine or plant and to intervene in the event of a fault.
The monitoring messages which can be generated for the various faults provide specific information on the monitoring mode, location and cause of the fault. Information on troubleshooting can be provided in addition. Plant operators can then not only recognize faults, they can also identify any potential danger in advance and take appropriate countermeasures.
Automatic code generation in the CPU
Data consistency guaranteed
Message texts are derived automatically from the information existing in the project
Simple visualization on the HMI by means of prepared controls
Non-interactive, i.e. the monitoring operations are defined independently of the user program
Area of application
For all S7-1500 CPU and ET 200SP CPUs with FW V2.0 or higher
For standard, failsafe and know-how-protected blocks
Supported HMI-systems: Basic Panels, Comfort Panels and Mobile Panels 2nd Generation, as well as the PC-based Runtime Systems WinCC Runtime Advanced and WinCC Runtime Professional.
Central, cycle-exact time stamping of the fault messages
Automatic generation of the monitoring logic and message calls
Automatic updating of the SIMATIC HMI when changing the message configuration for 3 languages
HMI systems do not have to exit runtime mode in the event of changes, in other words, automatic update of operator stations
Directly available in the language editors LAD, FBD, SCL and STL
Monitoring can be parameterized at a later date on F blocks and know-how-protected blocks
Central definition of message structure for the project
Support for different monitoring types, including lock monitoring and position monitoring.
Independent of language editors / program code
