Communication between Delta HMI and Siemens PLC S7-1200

Many users have faced the challenge to connect our DOP series HMI and Siemens S7-1200 PLC. This tutorial is intended to help all who may have little knowledge either Delta HMI or Siemens PLC in order to make this communication easy to set.

HMI-S71200

By following the below steps, you will find an easy way to connect both devices using Ethernet as a communication media:

Settings on Delta HMI side

1- In DOPSoft menu bar, go to “Options” => “Communication Setting”

Picture 1

2- Click on the Ethernet port and set the following parameters on the “Device” tab

2.1- Create a new connection by means of the “+” button:

2.2- Select “S7 1200 (ISO TCP) protocol from the SIEMENS list

Picture 3

Settings on Siemens S7-1200 PLC side using TIA Portal

1- Inside the PLC program, the “TCON” system function block (SFB) has to be inserted in order to establish the communication with Delta HMI

2- Open the Main Operation Block “OB1” and insert the “TCON” SFB as follows

3- In “Instructions” -> “Extended instructions” -> “Communications” -> “Open user communication”, open the “Others” folder and drag the “TCON” block to the operation block. This automatically generates an instance data block for the “TCON” function that you have to confirm with “OK”

Picture 54- Set the Input and Output parameters of the TCON block. Press F1 when selecting the TCN Block to access online help

Picture 6

5- Inside the properties of the TCON block specify the IP address of the communication partner

Picture 7

6- TIA Portal => PLC Properties

6.1- Select “General” => “Protection” => “Permit access with PUT/GET communication from remote partner”

Picture 8Picture 9

7- Enter the “Properties” option of the System Data Block previously generated and disable the “Optimized block access” option

Hope this tutorial is helpful to all of you. Good luck !

 

Hannover Messe 2016 highlights

Hannover Messe 2016 is just finish, one year more.
For those who came, welcome, and for those who couldn’t pass by, this is what we showed.

MS300/MH300
Capture
MS300 means Standard Compact Drive & MH300 means High Performance Compact drive
Small and compact format to replace our beloved VFD-E, and yes, both have PLC integrated, but no size limits anymore! 2K steps and 5K steps respectively.
Let’s see If we’re on time to give it a ride within this year!

PPC series
Capture
Industrial PC’s! So far 2 models of 15″ and 19″ inch, both with sexy silver IP65 frame, and of course compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Linux.

A2 400V
Capture
Size Matters! finally the new A2 400V series, specifically for European market. At this moment only M version available, and don’t try to weight the motor alone!

DMPS
DMPS
First complete Delta solution.
If you have to pump, let us know, we can provide not only the hardware, but also the software. Just plug and play.

DX-Series & DIACloud
DIAcloud
Delta Remote control solution.
No more ask IT guys to open the port for my machine, this is the tool you need to directly connect the machine to the cloud, and show to the boss how can he connect form his mobile phone. piece of cake.

And last but not least

AS300
AS300
Brand new PLC Series in the middle between DVP and AH500.
Is the kind of PLC that you’ll expected, with the flexibility and programming langages of AH500, but with a cost more closer to DVP.
Nevertheless we’ll need still more time until this is real, don’t expect it until 2017.

Hope to see you next year!

This is the perfect kit for everyone who wants to introduce in Delta programming software.

In case you already have your Delta elements, and just want the training tools, feel free to download all the information for free from our website.

Enjoy, and do not hesitate to share your experience with us.

HMI – PLC Real Time Clock Setting

Real Time Clock Sync

Since real time clock synchronization between HMI and PLC is a normal requirement for most application, we’d like to show you the updating function of real time clock provided by DOPSoft.

You can refer to the below technical document for the complete explanation on how to set real time clock synchronization.

Real Time Clock Setting

And here you can also download the HMI example program:

HMI program example

I hope it will be useful for you all !

Good luck !

Succesful Application: Electric Concrete Truck

This is a new application for our Netherlands distributor Innomotion.
The idea is to make a concrete truck more economic and silent.

Normally the drum is turned with diesel power (hydraulics) from the truck.
Now the drum is loaded at the factory on electric power (cable) and on the road a small generator is supplying just enough power for slow turning and unloading of the truck.

It will save fuel but most of all were possible the truck can unload on the cable so in the innercities there is less pollution on the building site and less noise.

Inside the big cabinet there is a C2000 45KW delta PLC and HMI.
Nice eco-project Innomotion!
Dank u wel

HMI new Instruction: Grid Box

Do you ever work with huge recipe?
If you did, you will know how uncomfortable is sometimes.

So in this case our programmers trying to make our life easier, they develop the Grid Box tool.
As you can see in the video below makes the Recipe edit much more simple.

But because to manage this tool is not easy, here below you can find the video example together with it’s technical announcement.

Grid Box (DOP Program + Technical Announcement)
I hope it will be useful for you all!

Announcement: Delta PLC and HMI new software release

Complete PLC and HMI software update ready for your computers!
All the announcements with the new stuff are compressed together with the software in the same .zip
So you don’t need to download separatelly.

Succesful Application: DVP20PM + DOPB-PS and G-Code download feature

Today, were going to talk about motion control.
There´s a PLC not released in many countries, but capable to manage up to 3 axis using step and direction control, is called DVP20PM or PM series.

20070817-20PM

This PLC needs special software called PMSoft, available on the web for free, as always.
This software a part from be able to program DVP20PM, it have the capability to work with G-Code files

PM-Soft Software

The G-Code files are a codified files that transform a Autocad file into a motion control trajectories, making the programming of motion control systems really easy.
Thanks to that codification, you can cut a difficult wood profile for example, designed previously using Autocad, and avoiding the hard PLC programming work to the engineer.

The problem that customer use to have with DVP20PM is when customer want to change the cutting profile of their product, because in that occasions, the Computer is needed, and not always our customer have a computer on the machine, isn’t it!

G-Code DVP20PM Download

Here, is where appears our new DOP-PS models, already available in EMEA region.
With this HMI´s your customer have the capability to change the G-Code profile only with one USB disk, following the next process:
1. Create Autocad File
2. Transform to G-Code and copy to USB disk
3. Connect the USB Disk to the DOPB-PS and download it to the 20PM
4. Run the program!

According to that, our HMI team prepares for us the complete following example where we´re going to cut an Scorpion picture profile into our 20PM.

You can download the HMI and PLC programs, and a nice pdf detailed explanation of how they create this application in our FTP Delta application guide folder

DVP20PM + DOPB-PS and G-Code download feature example

As you should understand this really simple kind of CNC tool could be applied to many kind of applications, from Wood cutting, plasma, or gluing, to stone grinding or even metal cutting!
Don´t hesitate to share your experiences with us.

And really soon same functionality to DVP10MC the future CANopen motion controller from Delta!
