  1. Hi: I know how to update the S7-1200 by this link: http://www.tecnoplc.com/actualizar-firmware-s7-1200-de-una-cpu-6es7-214-xxx-0xb0/ , but anyone knows about update the Firmware with other type of Memory Cards??? Is it available with 12MB or 4MB card??? Thank you a lot.
  2. Dear colleagues and siemens experts, I''m new in siemens. As all I make my program for PLC, but I need help with PID autotunig (pretuning) I use : 1.CPU 1214C DC/DC/DC (6ES7214-1AG40-0XB0) 2. 6ES7214-1AG40-0XB02. 16IN/16 OUT DC/DC/DC (6ES7-223-1BL32-0XB0) 3. 2x 6ES7231-5PD32-0XB0 ( 4 channel RTD analog module - PT100) We use 7(seven) Pt100 points with 7(seven) heaters ... so I need 7 additional outputs..... [you can see example of wiring in attached pic 6es7231-5pd32-0xb0-modules.jpg] Maximum heating point is around 220 degrees. I make my configuration for PID_Compact : 1. Basic settings 1.1 Controller type : Temperature : °C Set mode to : Pretuning ( sometimes I make it Automatic mode) 1.2 Input_Per(analog) -----> Output_PWM 2.Process value setting: 2.1 Process value limits: Process value high limit : 220.0 °C 2.2 Process value limits: Default 3. Advance setting 3.1Process value monitor : Default 3.2 PWM limits Minimum ON time : 0.5 sec Minimum OFF time : 0.5 sec 3.3 Output value : Default 3.4 PID parameters : Default I start Commissioning with these steps : 1. Measurement : Sampling time 0.5 Start 2. Start PID_Compact 3.Tuning mode : Start When I try first time my setpoint was 90 degrees , second time I try with 120 degrees. After 4-5 hours it stop more in Progress bar it stop when I reach a little more then 50%, and I stop PID. For heaters it is not normal to process to be 4-5 hours, there have some wrong. Example with 120 degrees : During process I make : When Input_PER reach 120[1200] degrees I stop physical access to heaters. When Input_PER reach 100[1000] degrees I start physical access to heaters So 4-5 hours is soo long time for this type process. Time to reach 120 degrees from 100 degrees is around 2-3 min. Time to fall from 120 degrees to 100 degrees is around 4-5 min. Total time for one whole cycle around : 8min. Sometimes when I set setpoint to 140, 150 degrees it writes me that output set value is to high after I give Start Pretuning ? Even sometimes when try for 120 degrees .... As all I want to start PID pretuning (autotuning) with setpoint 140 - 150 degrees. Which are minimum requirement to start PID autotuning with PID_Compact ? Could you send me some very simple example and steps that I must make or only steps ? I attached files in dropbox with images and program example, because I can't attached nothing here. This form don't give me access to attached something. So link is here : Even program is there. Thanks in advance Best regards : Altan
  3. Hello! I have a PLC S7-1200 (1212C DC/DC/DC) and a few question about programming S7-1200 in TIA Portal v13. 1. I want to make "upload station", because I am not surre whichone project is the last. But, when I start upload data, the error hapens, and the decription of error is: The name of the station "S7-1200 Station_1" is already in use in the project. How and where can I change it? 2. And the last question: I try to connect my S7-1200 and Weintek simualtion. There is all time :"PLC not connected". I have chceck everything: PLC is OK, communication PC-PLC ok (ping ok), windows firewall off, administrator rights ok, configuration made with manuals, (CPU - Siemens S7-1200, IP: 192.168.1.100, port 102, tags import - ok.) I have read the manual many times, and check settings - nothing change. Maybe have someone problems like this, and found a solution? PLC: 6ES7212-1AE40-0XB0 WIndows: 7 Proffessional 32 bit Program: TIA Portal V13 Basics Weintek: EasyBuilder Pro V5.02.01 Best Regards! Andrzej.
  4. Hello Everyone, I want to have a serial communication using Siemens S7-1200 with CM 1241 (RS-232) and communicate with my Arduino. Here is the setup of the communication. I have 2 temperature sensor and one Led connected to my Arduino, and on the PLC side I have S7-1200 from Siemens and CM-1241. Arduino and my PLC are connected just by using Tx and Rx pin no handshake is done. I am sending the temperature data from both the sensor to the PLC. on the PLC side i decide when to turn on the Led connected to my arduino depending on the different temperature values. I have assigning a ID to both the sensors before sending out the data. This is how the transmitted data from Arduino looks like $AOPT_TEMP1_20_TEMP2_21 . So far its good, I am receiving serial data on my PLC using RCV_PTP (received data are placed on the buffer) and sending data using SEND_PTP. I have also implement a filter on the PLC which will only accepts the serial data starting with '$AOPT_'. Now, I want to receive the temperature value from two temperature sensor TEMP1 & TEMP2 and then control the Led. For instance if (TEMP1>TEMP2 ) then turn ON the Led else turn OFF. I am able to receive the data on the PLC from Arduino but now I don't know how to proceed with comparing the received information. How do i extract the only required data from the received buffer? Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance....
  5. S7 Schedule program block (HVAC)

    Hi, Lately I've been working with Siemens S7 1200 for HVAC applications and I was wondering if anyone has a working schedule program. I need to be able to set weekly schedules and exception schedules. Also its supposed to be controlled from a SCADA so there needs to be a DB. I've heard some rumors that siemens have made something like this but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
  6. HELP S7-1200 tia portal

    Hi I m new and I need some help in programmin an actuator with S7-1200 on TIA PORTAL Here is the topic: program an actuator which move between two position located by thwo limit switch END_FWD_SW and END_BCK_SW To do that I have : Hardware: S7-1200 CPU 1212C AC/DC/RLY 6ES7 212-1BD30-0XB0 1 REVERSING CONTACTOR WITH LED 1 STARTER 1 POWER SUPPLY the list of inputs I have : 1 FWD_BUTTON to send the actuator forward until it reach the limit switch END_FWD_SW 1 BCK_BUTTON to send the actuator backward until it reach the limit switch END_BCK_SW 1 ESTOP_BUTTON to stop the actuator at any time 1 AUTO_BUTTON to set the system in auto mode so that the actuator could move itself from one position to another and so on go and come automatically 1 MANUAL_BUTTON to set the system in manual mode 1 INPUT_FWD_SWITCH this is the limit switch for the END FORWARD POSITION 1 INPUT_BCK_SWITCH this is the limit switch for the END BACKWARD POSITION The list of outputs I have 1 OUT_FWD to send the actuator forward 1 OUT_FWD to send the actuator Backward I do not know if I have to put the coil of the reversing contactor as OUTPUT too ??? because the reversing contactor has two coils : one that i used to go Forward and the other that I use to go backward the reversing contactor has an mechanical interlock of course. The actuator connection has two switch to send it Extended or Retracted. Of course the actuator is connected to a motor as you can see in the file attached showing it with his drawing connection. I also have to count the number of thime the actuator is used for the history. Any help please ???? Thanks you ! i HAVE ALSO ATTACGED THE PROGRAM I HAVE WRITE, I WANTED TO USED DB AND DB INSTANCE TO DO THAT CAN SOMEONE HELP ME IN MY PROGRAM ????
