The PCS7/TM-EA retrofit package combines a PCS 7 automation system and the components required for the incorporation of TELEPERM I/O peripherals in a MIG II migration rack, which can be installed in the TELEPERM M cabinet of an existing AS 2xy instead of the module rack with the central unit.
The AS 2xy upgrade units / upgrade systems with the TELEPERM M I/O modules are connected to the AS 416/417 via I/O buses 1 and 2. Two I/O bus plugs are available for the connection, these being located on the back panel of the migration rack at the height of the right-hand side wall. Up to 5 TELEPERM M I/O modules can be plugged in into the migration rack itself (not applicable for AS 220 H/AS 235 H).
Concerning the system / unit-wide engineering of the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system corresponding to the technical hierarchy of the unit, there is available a comprehensive engineering system that operates with a uniform project database. On the basis of this engineering system, it is possible to also plan with the SIMATIC S7 standard tools (Engineering Toolset) for TELEPERM M I/O peripherals that are incorporated into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system via AS 416/417 automation systems. The specific driver modules and module type definitions that are required for this are a constituent part of the PCS7/TM-EA coupling package that is part of the retrofit package.
The PCS7/TM-EA coupling package includes a TPM 478-2 switching-in module for the physical connection of TELEPERM M I/O peripherals to the SIMATIC PCS 7 automation system and also the software components, the "PCS 7 library", "Operating software for FM 456-4" and "S7 object manager".
Image modules (OCX) for the standardized display of PCS 7 driver modules for TELEPERM M I/O peripherals on SIMATIC PCS 7 Operator Stations are provided through the optional PCS7/TM-OCX (NORA) programming package.
