PROFIBUS system information
PROFINET system information
SIMOCODE pro supports the PROFINET system redundancy function. SIMOCODE pro motor management devices can be directly linked to high-availability systems with two controllers, without the need for any further hardware. Especially in the case of complex automation tasks in the process industry, where the focus is on system availability and redundancy of the control system, reliable communication with the H CPU is important. Both controllers belonging to the H system always have access to the SIMOCODE pro field device. In the event of a cable break or CPU failure, the other one takes over. This ensures seamless communication.
Clearly enhanced system availability
Minimized production outages - high productivity
No system restart costs
The web diagnostics function integrated in SIMOCODE pro facilitates global access to all important online information for diagnostics and service purposes (with PROFINET and EtherNet/IP). Relevant data can even be accessed via a PC with standard web browser: Either directly on-site or remotely via the Internet.Detailed status information on the motor, current measured values such as current and power, fault memory as well as service and statistical data can be transparently displayed via device-internal websites.
With OPC UA, SIMOCODE pro offers a flexible and powerful communication interface via Industrial Ethernet for automation as well as operation and monitoring systems. Acting as OPC UA client, these systems can access all important operating, service and diagnostics data of SIMOCODE pro for PROFINET and transfer control commands via the integrated OPC UA server. The motor management system directs information from the control panel via Ethernet right to where it is processed: directly on site on HMI Panels or across multiple systems in higher-level cloud-based solutions such as Siemens
With OPC UA communication from SIMOCODE pro, switching systems are transformed into providers of valuable information.
