Communication Modules for LOGO! 8


------------------------------------------------------------------------


WinCC Connection to S7-1500, S71200 and ET 200SP

Task
The task is to provide process tags and AS messages of S7-1200, S7-1500 and ET 200SP in WinCC V7.3.

Solution
WinCC V7.2 provides the communication channel "SIMATIC S7-1200, S7-1500 Channel" for connection to S7-1200 and S7-1500 controllers. Communication to S7-1200, S7-1500 and ET 200SP can be realized with absolute
addressing and from WinCC V7.3 also with symbolic adressing.

Acyclic Read and Write with the IO-Link Library

The function blocks IO_LINK_MASTER and IO_LINK_DEVICE represent the implementation of the communication (PROFIBUS DP or PROFINET IO) from and toIO-Link devices and master modules standardized for IO-Link technology.

Solution
The following library contains function blocks for processing the device parameters for IO-Link communication modules of SIMATIC S7 and the data records of the connected IO-Link devices.


IO-Link block Functionality
IO-LINK_MASTERUsing this function block helps you save and restore the device parameters and settings of an IO-Link communication module/ IO-Link master via the S7 program.
IO_LINK_DEVICEUsing this function block helps you write device parameters to an IO-Link device acyclically via the S7 program, or read parameters, measured values, and diagnostic data from an IO-Link device
The IO_LINK_MASTER block works with the following SIMATIC S7 communication modules 
  • ET 200SP CM 4xIO-Link
  • ET 200AL CM 4xIO Link
  • ET 200ecoPN IO-Link Master
  • S7-1200 SM 1278 IO-Link

Energy Data Acquisition with the Energy Meter of the S7‑1200





Acyclic reading out of energy data with the energy meter of the S7‑1200 and saving the measured data.

In industry, energy efficiency is of increasing significance. Compliance with laws and regulations, increased pressure on return on investment and a growing awareness for climate protection are key factors for the reduction of energy costs and the implementation of an energy management system.
The energy meter acquires energy data. Together with the functionality of the S7-1200 it is possible to evaluate measured data, to display it and to archive it.
In this application example it is shown...
  • how you can read out energy data acyclically,
  • how you can calculate the average power and
  • how you can save the measured data cyclically in a data log file.

Sending SYSLOG messages with a SIMATIC S7 CPU



Syslog is a simple binary UDP/IP protocol.It allows applications to send alerts, 
warnings or error states to a syslog server.

Simple and efficient
Syslog is a simple binary UDP/IP protocol. It allows applications to send alerts, warnings or error states to a syslog server. Syslog is used typically in computer system management and security monitoring and has now become established as a standard in the field of logging.
Applicative implementation
The "LSyslog" library provides a solution for implementing the syslog protocol in a SIMATIC S7 controller. In addition to the library, an application example is provided that shows you how to generate syslog messages in your system and send to the syslog server.
"LSyslog" library
The library provides a function block (FB) that fulfills the following functions:
  • Establishment of a UDP connection to the syslog server by means of open communication blocks.
  • Embedding of the user alarm with timestamp in the syslog protocol.
  • Sending the syslog alarm. 

Application example
In this application example, security messages are read out with the instructions "Get_Alarm" and 

"GetChecksum" and sent to the syslog server using the "LSyslog" 
library. This allows you to track and document access to your controls.
