In this multi-part video series, I am using TIA Portal to create an application that will run in a standard Siemens KTP1200 touch-panel HMI.
In the previous videos in this series, I have demonstrated some of the power of WinCC in helping to create HMI screens, animate objects, and develop templates that can be used to operate the plant.
In this video, I will continue to develop the navigation in the HMI using buttons to emulate tabs in a notebook. So, I will complete the configuration for "Home" screen and "Tank 1" screen navigation buttons, will assign the navigation template to them and finally, I will test them using HMI simulator.
I will first complete the basic configuration and then test the navigation strategy with the HMI Simulator to make sure the navigation scheme works correctly before extending it to the other two screens built in a previous video.
