2. Adding a Touchscreen HMI to the Hardware Configuration
In this multi-part video series, I am showing you how to use TIA Portal to create an application that will run in a standard basic Siemens touch-panel operator interface, or, human-machine interface, HMI for short.
In the previous video, I showed you how to add a 12” SIMATIC KTP1200 Basic tou...
3. Configuring a PLC Program to be Used With the HMI
In TIA Portal, the HMI visualization software is an embedded version of WinCC Basic, which is very similar to the WinCC versions used in conjunction with Step7. This is good information for those who do not have or use TIA Portal for programming Siemens PLC’s and HMI stations.
5. Compiling, Loading, and Simulating an HMI Screen
In the previous videos, I created the hardware configuration with a PLC and HMI station and also added a simple set of logic to the PLC. Then, I defined the tags required to access values in the PLC from the HMI.
In the previous video, I created an HMI screen and added some objects to the scre...
