The SIMATIC PCS 7 Condition Monitoring Library (CML) provides blocks for economic monitoring and analysis of mechanical assets (plant components such as pumps, valves, etc.) that increase efficiency and availability and detect possible damages as early as possible.
The CML blocks in APL style fit perfectly into the process pictures based on APL.
The PumpMon block can be used for electric centrifugal pumps as well as for constant and variable-speed pumps.
It offers the following functions:
Visualization of the current pump operating point in relation to the pump characteristic curve
Early detection of imminent pump damages and warning of pump damages in case of unfavorable operating states
Optimization of pump design through statistical evaluation of operating data
