A Ascendancy Architectonics clairvoyant writes: Our bulb had affiliated on Siemens (Moore) 353 and the Procidia i|pac (353R) action automation controllers. The controllers accept been retired and are no best accessible for purchase, so I charge article to alter them.
We were appliance them for boiler control, affiliated action and batching applications in our plant. The ambassador was basically a mini DCS with a faceplate that could be acclimated for bounded agreement and operation. Assorted controllers are affiliated on Ethernet with anchored HMI platforms, such as Procidia i|station, advance throughout the plant. It has larboard us with a huge aperture affective forward.
While the absolute controllers use Boolean action blocks or ladder argumentation programming, I do not adore autograph code. However, I am actual acceptable at configuring controllers with the accepted languages. Any suggestions on a ambassador and HMI to affluence our advancement activity from both a accouterments and a software standpoint? Please help.
I would advance they attending at the Siemens S7-1200 or 1500 controllers appliance TIA Portal for programming. It has the structured languages bare to alter the action blocks in 353s and Procidia. There are others, but if they are accustomed with the Siemens articles this in the “family.”
I would additionally advance they attending at accomplishing a FEED abstraction to analysis the options and argumentation and how best to admission the migration. Best acceptable the accumulation advantage is simple compound administration or sequencing which can calmly be handled in the PLCs mentioned. If it is added circuitous batch, again they may charge to accede a accumulation server which would be afterpiece to the PCS 7 system. My assumption is the S7-1200 or 1500 will handle what they have.

In acknowledgment to your concern for advance your Siemens (Moore) 353 and the Procidia i|pac (353R) controllers, I accept accomplished out to Siemens to see what they recommend. They declared that they performed a allegory on the 353 controllers back they went anachronistic and begin that all of their functionality could be performed by the newer S7-1200 controllers they now offer. This will crave absolutely a few agreement changes, but they additionally action casework to abetment with that, as do we if you are attractive for an integrator. It is accessible that you would be able to alter assorted 353 controllers with a distinct S7-1200 PLC as the accouterments is alteration from a single-loop ambassador to a multi-loop controller. The aforementioned is accessible with the 353R, but that depends on the I/O agreement there; they may crave a one-to-one backup for anniversary one.

I am borderline what is meant by “standard languages.” It seems this clairvoyant does “not adore autograph code,” I accept in advertence to the Siemens 353 appliance action blocks for programming, and conceivably additionally acquisitive to not use ladder logic, as is accepted in best programmable argumentation controllers (PLCs). If, by “standard languages,” this clairvoyant agency article like C or C#, again the clairvoyant may be a acceptable applicant for the IEC 61131 programming environment.
IEC 61131, or added properly, IEC-61131-3, is a programming ambiance which, by definition, has bristles programming languages:
Obviously, IEC 61131 contains two of the languages that may be abominable to the reader, LD and FBD. But it additionally contains ST and IL. ST is added like programming in C. It is a actual accustomed architectonics to addition who is adequate programming in a Microsoft .NET environment. To me, IL consistently seemed article like programming in the Microsoft Macro Assembler (MASM), with instructions, such as LD for “load the accumulator” or JMP for “jump to addition area in the program.” These may be abundant added adequate programming languages for this reader.
The two best accepted IEC 61131 environments are produced by German companies, CodeSys fabricated by 3S-Smart Software Solutions and CodeSys fabricated by KW-Software, which was acquired by Phoenix Contact some years ago. Advantech offers both of these software solutions in some of its accouterments solutions. It is account advertence that CodeSys added a sixth programming accent to its IEC 61131 ambiance alleged affiliated action blueprint (CFC).
There is addition aggregation that produces an IEC 61131 band-aid alleged ISaGraf fabricated by a aggregation name ICS Triplex, which was acquired by Rockwell Automation some years ago. Although ISaGraf may not be as able-bodied known, it is notable because it incorporates both IEC 61131 and IEC 61499 programming environments. IEC 61499 is added like a action block language, but it graphically incorporates the accouterments acclimated with the programming accent to facilitate broadcast ascendancy methods. Centralized ascendancy methods are added frequently begin in North America, area broadcast ascendancy methods are added frequently begin in Europe. A attenuated band-aid may become the best accepted of all, but IEC 61499 is apparently not a acceptable band-aid for this reader’s needs. ISaGRAF is begin on a cardinal of Rockwell Automation’s Micro PLC products.
The Siemens 353 is basically a bend controller. There are abounding brands of bend controllers accessible from abounding manufacturers. Back this clairvoyant says he or she does “not adore autograph code,” the clairvoyant may be attractive for a accouterments band-aid with fill-in-the-blank blazon simple programming or configuration. This blazon of bend ambassador frequently has actual little flexibility. The Siemens 353 had cogent programming adequacy and flexibility, which agency it was apparently custom-configured to board the reader’s application. It is actual acceptable that the clairvoyant will accept to either advertence engineering documents, which specify how these ascendancy loops were programmed and what the operating ambit are, or the appliance will accept to be reverse-engineered to actuate every allusive aspect of the application. The affairs are that article added than simple preconfigured bend controllers will be needed, and the clairvoyant will accept to do some programming.
Finally, Advantech offers a cardinal of articles able of accomplishing bend control. We action the ADAM-3600 Series, which comes with a chargeless lite adaptation of KW with chargeless development software. We additionally action the APAX-5580 Series which comes with CodeSys (Figure 1). The APAX-5580 is a able PC-based arrangement with options of a Celeron processor or amount i3 or i7 processors. It has a modular congenital I/O arrangement with the archetypal analog and agenda modules and the processing assemblage has an HDMI anchorage that allows affiliation of a affectation such as Advantech’s FPM collapsed console touchscreen monitor. CodeSys does abutment an alternative HMI software bore alleged Target Visu, which would accommodate an all-in-one band-aid to alter the Siemens 353 bend controller.
