In the introduction to PCS7 course (https://bit.ly/PCS7-Course), we created a project named “Tank_Valve”. we configured the “AS-400” with several CFC blocks to monitor and control a simple process.
At the end of the course, we downloaded the project to the CPU and after that performed a simple simulation using the “S7-PLCSIM” application.
In order to more completely visualize the process, even in simulation mode, process graphics need to be constructed. In PCS7, we will use WinCC, Windows Control Center, to configure operator graphics.
WinCC is based on WinCC Professional, a full-featured HMI development system which is used to create operator graphics.
In this video, we will:
- Explain what WinCC is and how it operates,
- Identify the role of the OS in the PCS7,
- Explain the various views in PCS7 for building graphics,
- How the Advanced Process Library helps in creating operator graphics.
