The functions SINAMICS Drive Control Chart (DCC), Safety Integrated acceptance test and the TIA Portal Openness interface revolutionize the use of drives in the TIA Portal:
SINAMICS Drive Control Chart (SINAMICS DCC)
SINAMICS Drive Control Chart (SINAMICS DCC) enables you to create your own and complex technology functions based on graphical signal processing charts with interconnected blocks.
By simple graphical configuration, the device functionality can be individually expanded with closed-loop control, mathematical, and logic functions.
Safety Integrated acceptance test
Documentation simplified – the acceptance test with V15
One of the highlights of Startdrive V15 is the acceptance test for the Safety Integrated Functions of the SINAMICS G120 family of drives.
According to the machinery directive, safety functions must be accepted, and must be documented in compliance with EN ISO 13849-1 and EN ISO 13849-2.
With the integrated acceptance test, users are navigated in a user-friendly fashion step-by step using graphic screen forms in the TIA Portal.
They are guided through the complete workflow and at the end receive a document that is attached to the machine documentation.
Drive settings can be simply accessed as a result of the
The focus is on digitalization based on these new functions. Using the Openness interface, in the TIA Portal the hardware configuration can be externally accessed along with drive parameters.
This can be used for manufacturers of standard machines to automatically generate projects, for example.
Using an external, custom-specific tool, all information can be transferred to the TIA Portal and the drive is automatically created in the project.
V15 provides an external tool to make mass parameter changes. This is used if one or several parameters, in a project with many drives, must be simultaneously changed in several drives.
