Diagnostics of Motors
Diagnostics of Motors with Motor Management System SIMOCODE pro
Area of application
SIMOCODE pro has been specifically designed for use in Smart Motor Control Centers (MCC) for the process industry and power plants, and provides the protection and control of motors and pumps.
The SIMOCODE ES Premium software can directly be integrated into the SIMATIC PCS 7 system. With the integrated object manager, SIMOCODE ES can be directly called up from SIMATIC PCS 7. This means easy and uniform configuration and parameterization of devices throughout the S7 system.
With the PCS 7 library SIMOCODE pro, SIMOCODE pro can easily and in a user-friendly way be integrated into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system.
The PCS 7 library SIMOCODE pro contains the diagnostics and driver blocks that correspond with the diagnostics and driver system of SIMATIC PCS 7, as well as the necessary operator control and monitoring elements (symbols and faceplate).
Parameterization of devices from a central engineering system via PROFIBUS-DP is also possible with the SIMATIC PDM (Process Device Manager).
Further advantage: via the PCS 7 library, SIMOCODE pro can be integrated without any additional overhead both into SIMATIC PCS 7 Maintenance Station and SIMATIC PCS 7 powerrate
Design and functions
Multifunctional, solid- state full motor protection which is independent of the automation system
Flexible software instead of hardware for the motor control
Detailed operational, service and diagnostics data
Energy management capability
Integration in PCS 7 using standard library and function blocks
Operating and statistics data permit condition-based maintenance
Motor operating hours/downtimes/number of operating hours
Number of motor startups/of overload trips
Internal comments stored in the device
Last trip current
Number of unsuccessful starts
Diagnostics data for corrective maintenance:
Detailed warnings and fault messages are sent to SIMATIC PCS 7 maintenance station
Internal device fault logging
Time stamping of freely selectable status, alarm and fault messages
Value of the previous tripping current
Feedback error (e.g. no current flow in the main circuit following ON control command) etc.
