2 Fundamentals

Operation, monitoring, diagnosis, maintenance: These are the typical tasks


that you as an operator perform using the process picture of the plant.
This chapter provides introductory information for the operation of automation
objects with the following focal areas:

Section Description
2.1 Process pictures in Plant iT Process Graphics
Overview information for the user interface of the Plant iT Process
Graphics.
A detailed description of the operating elements is contained in the
chapters for the associated automation class.
2.2 Multi-level operating concept
Overview information for the operating concept for automation classes.
The operating functions available for an automation class depend on
several prerequisites. This section presents these prerequisites.
2.3 Safety information
Shows which handling steps can have risks and which safety measures
you must take.

2.1 Process pictures in Plant iT Process Graphics


The process pictures with which you control a plant are contained in the
Plant iT Process Graphics application.
If your project uses automation classes for the process automation, the process
pictures contain not only the representation of the process cell, but also class-
specific display elements (visualization controls). You can use these controls to
operate and monitor the objects.

Example
Visualization control in compact representation (ProClass)

Further information
General information about the structure and use of process pictures is
contained in the following manual:

Plant Direct iT Operation Workstations

2.2 Multi-level operating concept


For aggregates (e.g. motors or valves), the process picture provides a multi-
level operating concept. It consists of the following components:
Representation/monitoring level:
The process picture shows the objects in the form of visualization controls.
(Figure 1). There are several ways of representing objects in the process
picture.
Operation level:
An operator dialog is provided for automation class objects. On the one
hand, it shows you all the detailed information about the object. On the
other hand, you can use the operator dialog to control the objects.
Object overview level:
The object overview provides you with a representation type with which
you can monitor and control several objects together.

Individual dialogs have frequently-used buttons that have the same meaning:

Button Description
Opens a dialog in which the national language designation can be
entered and changed in all installed languages.
Jumps directly to the object dialog.

Opens a dialog for searching directories or with more advanced


settings.
Opens a color selection dialog.

Saves the changes.

Discards the changes.

Opens an extended view.

Refreshes the associated display.

Depending on the dialog, loads the selected entry or all entries into
the PLC.
Displays a dialog for the column settings of a table. This allows you to
customize the appearance of the table.
A click on one of the numbers in the header of a hierarchically
structured table displays the associated level. The lower levels are
suppressed.

2.2.2 Process picture: Representation of the automation objects via visualization controls

You can use the visualization controls in the process picture for two purposes:
They provide basic information about the status of an object. Because the
visualization controls lie directly in the process picture, this information is
always available at a glance.
You can use the visualization controls to open the operator dialog of the
objects.

2.2.3 Operator dialog: For information and control

The operator dialog is a dialog window that overlays the process picture after it
has been called. It contains all the relevant information for an object and the
buttons used to control the objects.
You can use the operator dialog in two ways:
Standard operator dialog
Extended operator dialog

2.3 Safety information


Some of the operating steps described in this manual can place the plant in a
critical state. This can cause material damage or even injury to persons.
The following notes show you:
For which operating steps you must proceed with utmost caution.
How you can prevent critical plant states (safety recommendations).

2.3.1 Manual operating mode

Background
Depending on the configuration, the Manual operating mode can bring the plant
into a critical state.

Example
The Manual operating mode should typically be configured so that the
automatic control of the sequence is interrupted immediately. This means:
The attained control state of the aggregates is retained.
Example: Currently opened valves remain open; currently running heating
operations continue.

Plant Direct iT Operation | Automation Classes CM-SI


V8.20, R04 13
Fundamentals
Safety information

If the operator does not manually continue to control the plant correctly,
damage can occur to the plant, e.g. because of over-heating.

Invocation
In the Manual operating mode, you can activate in the operator dialogs various
automation classes or, for example, in the sequence overview.

Danger

Attention!
Missing or incorrect manual control can cause injury to persons and material
damage!
The plant can assume a critical state:
- If you do not continue to control the process manually after switching the operating
mode.
- If you perform inappropriate control actions for the process.

Safety recommendations
Use the Manual operating mode only:
When you have been instructed with which consequences the operating
mode has for your plant and which special dangers result.
When you have received the explicit authorization to control in the Manual
operating mode.

Configuring engineers
Ensure that the passive safety mechanisms in the plant control prevent
dangers in the Manual operating mode (e.g. locks).
Administer the user groups so that the Manual operating mode is disabled
for unauthorized operators.

2.3.2 Simulation control mode

Background
The Simulation control mode is used for configuring a plant. In the Simulation
control mode, you can execute automation objects without the safety
mechanisms active in standard mode.
The following mechanisms are deactivated:
Wait for feedback. Instead, feedback is simulated.
The messages configured as an alarm.
System alarms, however, will continue to be displayed.

Plant Direct iT Operation | Automation Classes CM-SI


V8.20, R04 14
Fundamentals
Safety information

Invocation
You can call the Simulation control mode in the operator dialog.

Danger

Attention!
Missing safety mechanisms can cause injury to persons and material damage.
In particular, the overriding of the UserHold signal can cause the plant to be brought
into a critical state.

Safety recommendations
Use this function only:
When you have been instructed with which consequences the operating
mode has for your plant and which special dangers result.
When you have been expressly given authorization for this type of control.
During the configuring phase (when the process control engineering is not
yet connected to the plant).
During the commissioning, it can be necessary to use the Simulation
control mode even when a plant is already connected. This, however, can
only be done by configuring engineers who intimately know the plant
process.

Notes for configuring engineers


Administer the user groups so that the Simulation control mode is disabled for non-
authorized operators.

C07 Signal, signal encoder
Function

3 C07 Signal, signal encoder

Objects of the C07 Signal class are used to control signal encoders, e.g. horns,
lights, etc.

3.1 Function
Objects of the C07 Signal class control signal encoders in the process cell
when specific messages arrive. This activation is made with parameterized
pulse/pause times.
The signal encoders remain triggered in the PLC until the criterion for the signal
end parameterized in the control system is satisfied. This criterion is satisfied in
the standard setting when all messages have been acknowledged.

Execution:
The message arrives at the event signaling system on the PC.
If the message satisfies the specified criteria of a signal filter and an object
of the C07 Signal class is assigned to the signal filter, the object in the PLC
now receives the command 128, Activate output, from the PC.
Starting at this time, the object of the C07 Signal class in the PLC
deactivates the signal encoder in the parameterized pulse/pause time.
The criterion parameterized for the signal end in the Configuration Client is
satisfied, for example, by acknowledging the message on the PC.
The object of the C07 Signal class in the PLC assigned to the signal filter
now receives the command 129, Deactivate output.
The object of the C07 Signal class in the PLC switches the signal encoder
off.

3.2 Standard operator dialog


This dialog view displays the signal encoder status.

C21 OCM, object control matrix
Function

5 C21 OCM, object control matrix

The OCM class, object control matrix is used to control and monitor objects
(control modules such as valves, gates, motors, etc.).
The principle is based on the logic of a cross-table, where the columns and the
rows represent the activities and the objects, respectively. The type of
monitoring or control is entered in the intersection points of the table.
Depending on the associated object properties, different states can be queried
or activations initiated.

5.1 Function
The complete functionality of the OCM consists of
Tools for the parameterization in the Configuration Client
Server function (service)
Control logic in the PLC
Operator dialog
Objects of an OCM can be assigned to various controllers. The required
communications mechanisms are organized by the system.
All parameterized OCM data is stored in the database. When a matrix is
required for a program execution, the associated data will be loaded into the
appropriate controllers. The memory area in the controllers will be released
once the program execution has completed. This allows a very large number of
matrixes to be managed without reaching the capacity limits of the controllers.

Example: Transfer from tank farm A to tank farm B


Tank farm A: Tank 1 to 30
Tank farm B: Tank 1 to 20
There are 30 x 20 = 600 different paths for a transfer program; this means 600
matrixes in the database. Only one matrix for the selected source and target is
required concurrently in the controller.
An appropriate program selects the matrix number.

5.1.1 Possible commands from the OCM to objects

Depending on the functionality of the individual usable classes, various


commands per activity can be transferred to an object. A letter is defined for
each command:

C22 CA, contamination area
Function

6 C22 CA, contamination area

Objects of the CA class are used to manage the status and reservation data of
a process cell area. The status information consists of a register with
32 information items and several timestamps and times. Order and batch
identifications are stored in the reservation data. The grouping of a process cell
in Contamination Areas depends on the technological requirements. A CA
object is typically defined for each process cell area used exclusively by an
automatic program. Process cell areas can be:
Containers
Tanks
Filling and emptying pipes
Feeding lines
etc.
If all actuators (valves, gates, etc.) of a CA are deactivated, the defined area
itself should represent a closed system.
The use of the C22 CA class is an easy way of obtaining a status management
for process cell areas.
The CA objects are a significant, but optional, part of OCM (Object Control
Matrix) objects.

6.1 Function
The C22 CA class is used in conjunction with the C21 OCM class. The OCM
logic provides the status and order/batch data. In addition, information about
failures and manual operations for assigned objects is acquired.
For certain status changes, timestamps are updated and/or times started.

C25 DCM, actuators
Function

7 C25 DCM, actuators

The Actuators class permits the control and monitoring of digital control
modules, namely motors and valves. Depending on the parameterization,
different actuator types can be used based on the number and behavior of their
triggering and feedback.
The class evaluates a number of interlocks and faults and can monitor
maintenance cycles.

7.1 Function
A valve or a gate is triggered when the load output is set by the DCM logic
(LO = 1). The position confirmation in accordance with the parameterization
must arrive within the parameterized monitoring time. If this does not occur, the
DCM assumes the Failure status.
The DCM logic sets the load output of a DCM when the Automatic On (A-
on = 1) signal is set by the PLC program or when the DCM is switched on from
the operator dialog and neither the Operational interlock signal nor the
Operational block signal is zero (OI = 1, OB = 1).
In standard mode, feedbacks for the switch-on and -off are expected and
monitored. DCMs, however, can also be used in simulation mode. In this
case, the expected feedbacks are simulated.
The DCM class covers a wide spectrum of functionality required in conjunction
with actuators and drives. In addition to the monitoring of feedbacks, failure
inputs and interlocks, this includes the counting of switching cycles and
operating times, and a simulation mode for test operation.

Note
The simulation mode simulates the correct feedbacks of the object. The load output is
also controlled in simulation mode.

7.1.1 DCMs failure behavior

If a failure is detected, the behavior of the DCM depends on the parameterized


DCM type. For the Valve types, the load output remains activated even in the
Failure status. For the Motor types, the load output is deactivated in a failure
situation.

7.1.2 Monitoring of maintenance cycles

No additional modules are required for the DCM class in order to acquire the
operating time and the number of switching cycles. If a parameterized limit
value is exceeded, the class automatically signals the end of the maintenance
cycle. Once the maintenance has been performed, the personnel can reset the
internal counter to zero and the maintenance cycle starts from the beginning.

C25 DCM, actuators

7.1.3 Simulation mode

Objects of the DCM class can function even when they do not receive any
feedbacks. In simulation mode, the feedbacks of the drives are simulated
appropriately for the activation.
If, for example, a feedback signal fails during operations, the drive can continue
to be used in simulation mode until the signal encoder has been repaired. The
simulation mode can also be used for function tests without hardware.

Note
The simulation mode simulates the correct feedbacks of the object. The load output is
also controlled in simulation mode

C26 DSV, double-seat valves
Function

8 C26 DSV, double-seat valves

The Double-Seat Valves class permits the control and monitoring of valves
with three activations. The class evaluates a number of interlocks and faults
and can monitor maintenance cycles.

8.1 Function
A double-seat valve is activated when the load output (LO = 1) is set by the
DSV logic. The position confirmation in accordance with the parameterization
must arrive within the parameterized monitoring time. If this does not occur, the
DSV assumes the Failure status.
The DSV logic sets the load output of a DSV when the Automatic On (A-
on = 1) signal is set by the PLC program or when the DSV is switched on from
the operator dialog and the Operational interlock signal is not zero (OI = 1).
In addition to the main drive, the A and B drives can be controlled by the
according A-on signals (A and B) or from the operator dialog.
In standard mode, feedbacks for the switch-on and -off are expected and
monitored. DSV can, however, also be used in simulation mode. In this case,
the expected feedbacks are simulated.
The DSV class covers a wide spectrum of functionality required in conjunction
with double-seat valves. In addition to the monitoring of feedbacks and
interlocks, this includes the counting of switching cycles and operating times,
and a simulation mode for test operation without the evaluation of the
feedbacks.

Note
The simulation mode simulates the correct feedbacks of the object. The load output is
also controlled in simulation mode.

8.1.1 Monitoring of maintenance cycles

No additional modules are required for the DSV class in order to acquire the
operating time and the number of switching cycles. If a parameterized limit
value is exceeded, the class automatically signals the end of the maintenance
cycle. Once the maintenance has been performed, the personnel can reset the
internal counter to zero and the maintenance cycle starts from the beginning.

C28 BO, binary outputs
Function

10 C28 BO, binary outputs

The binary outputs class is used to transfer binary signals from a data area
used by user programs to the I/O. In this way, PLC programs remain unaffected
by address changes in the I/O.
In addition, the read signals can be given delay times or converted into pulses.

10.1 Function
An object of the C28 BO class reads a binary value from the values DB or a
specified flag area and assigns it to an address defined as ITP pointer, for
example, in the I/O.
The class can allocate the read values not only directly to the target addresses.
It is also possible to parameterize switch-on and switch-off delays or pulse
times.
When the input signal leaves a certain target status (1 or 0), the class can send
a message to the message system if needed.
In addition, the output can be directly activated in manual mode or the input can
be simulated in simulation mode.

10.2 Standard operator dialog


The signal change of the output is shown graphically in the operator dialog
dependent on the input signal. The following types can be parameterized:
Direct

The dialog views show the current input and output values and the method of
handling the input value.

C70 SA, sequenced actuation
Function

12 C70 SA, sequenced actuation

Objects of the C70 SA class can be used to activate and monitor activities in a
defined order.

12.1 Function
The C70 SA class allows you to easily configure various activations and
monitorings in a defined order.
The switch-on order is increasing (step 1 to n); the switch-off order is
decreasing (step n to 1). A switch-on and -off delay (in seconds) can be
parameterized for each step.
An object of the C70 SA class can be assigned an object control matrix. The
matrix defines the activations and the monitorings of the individual steps; the
sequenced actuation supplies the activities as specified by the orders.
A startup warning is issued prior to starting a switch-on sequence. Activity 00 =
idle is activated during this startup warning. Activities 02 to 32 are activated for
the actual sequenced actuation.
Depending on the parameterization, in the case of an error, all activities after
the error cause will be deactivated, although activities before the error cause
remain activated.
It is also possible to wait for the correct feedback from the last step before the
next activity is switched on.
If 30 steps do not suffice, SA objects can be cascaded.

12.2 Standard operator dialog


The standard operator dialog displays the status of the sequenced actuation.

C71 CR, command router
Function

13 C71 CR, command router

The C71 CR class can be used to optionally activate and monitor objects of
other classes (DCM, DSV, etc.) in an object control matrix.

13.1 Function
Objects of the C71 CR class are supplied with control commands by the OCM
logic and return the status of the target object.
The parameterization defines the actual target object and a release signal. If the
release is absent, depending on the activations, an appropriate status is always
returned to the OCM. If the release signal = 1, the received commands are
forwarded to the target object and the status of the target object returned to the
OCM.
This functionality allows conditional activations and monitorings to be
implemented easily within a single OCM activity.

C72 BIM, boolean input monitored
Function

14 C72 BIM, boolean input monitored

The C72 BIM class is used to read binary signals from the I/O and to make
these available to user programs in a fixed data area. In this way, PLC
programs remain unaffected by address changes in the I/O.
In addition, the read signals can be given delay times or converted into pulses.
The created output signal can be optionally monitored for a set status and a
failure signal created in case of deviation.

14.1 Function
An object of the C72 BIM class uses an ITP pointer to fetch a binary value, the
monitoring release and the set status. As alternative, the release signal and the
set status can be supplied from parameterized flag areas. The output signals
are provided as interconnectable attributes and also available for further use in
flag areas.
The class can not just allocate the read values directly to the target areas. It is
also possible to parameterize switch-on and switch-off delays or pulse times.
When the output signal leaves a certain set status (1 or 0), the object can send
a message to the message system if needed.
In addition to reading a peripheral input, the output signal can be directly
controlled in manual mode or the input can be simulated in simulation mode.

C73 AI, analog inputs
Function

15 C73 AI, analog inputs

The C73 AI class is suitable for fetching, normalizing and monitoring analog
inputs. A maximum of four limit values whose status is output as message and
interconnected attribute to the control system can be used here.

15.1 Function
In process plants, measuring sensors (e.g. temperatures, conductivity values,
pressures, flow rates) often supply an analog signal as a current or a voltage. A
controller can acquire these signals using the appropriate analog input
modules. The analog input modules basically serve as analog-digital converters
that convert a current or a voltage into a numerical value. The read-in values
are referred to as electrical actual values. The conversion of an electrical
value into a physical actual value is called normalization.
In addition, up to four limit values can be defined as upper or lower limits.
Usually, two upper and two lower limits are used. Depending on the
parameterization, limit value violations can also require acknowledgment and/or
need to be reported.
The limits are evaluated as for the C76 LIM class.
Further information: Chapter 18, "C76 LIM, limit values"

The C74 IVT class forms up to 32 pulse signals, where the time for each
individual pulse can be parameterized.
Depending on the settings, the pulse sequence is performed once or n-times.
The interval sequence can be controlled by a control signal from the user
program to also run continuously.
A parameterized overlapping time can be used to set overlapping pulse signals
(overlapping time > 0). A negative overlapping time produces a pause
between the pulse signals.
Objects of the C74 IVT class can be used, for example, to form clock cycles for
valve seat rinsing for cleaning programs, container spraying or similar.

C76 LIM, limit values
Function

18 C76 LIM, limit values

The C76 LIM class is suitable for fetching and monitoring numeric values. A
maximum of four limit values whose status is output as message and
interconnected attribute to the control system can be used here.

18.1 Function
The Limit values class can be used to continuously check the numeric values
for up to four limit values. If the limit values are violated, appropriate messages
can be sent to the message system. The hysteresis can be defined for each
limit value to lower the frequency of messages when there are small
fluctuations around the limit value, a switch-on delay and a switch-off delay.
It can be specified for each of the four limit values whether the evaluation type
is to be the upper limit or the lower limit. The effective direction of the hysteresis
depends on this.
Depending on the parameterization, limit value violations can also require
acknowledgment and/or need to be reported.
The limit values 1 and 2 are specified on the object; the limit values 3 and 4 can
be optionally interconnected using an ITP pointer to, for example, recipe-
dependent values. The limit value monitoring can, for example, be activated
process-dependent using appropriate release signals.

Function

19 C77 DEVM, deviation monitoring

The DEVM class monitors an actual value for deviations compared with a
setpoint. Warning and alarm limits can be set. Tolerance violations can be sent
as messages to the control system.

19.1 Function
The Deviation monitoring class monitors the deviation of a current actual
value from a setpoint. A total of four tolerance values using ITP pointers,
possibly interconnected recipe-dependent, can be specified:
Lower warning limit
Upper warning limit
Lower alarm limit
Upper alarm limit
Both a delay time and a hysteresis can be parameterized for the warning and
alarm limits.
Another setting can be specified as to whether the parameterized tolerance
values represent absolute values in physical units or as percentage deviations.
For a percentage evaluation, the currently specified setpoint is taken as 100%.

Note
If the setpoint lies near 0, a percentage evaluation is either not useful or not possible!

C88 AO, analog outputs
Function

21 C88 AO, analog outputs

The C88 AO class makes it possible to normalize a physical setpoint into an


electrical value and write it to an analog output module.

21.1 Function
Analog process setpoints (e.g. manipulated values for butterfly valves, speeds
for motors) are often specified as values in physical units or as percentages in a
controller. The drives in the process plants, however, require current or voltage
signals. Analog output modules, digital-analog converters, form the
corresponding current or voltage signal from the transferred numeric (=
electrical) value.

Example: Setpoint for 0..50 Hz frequency converter

Current Electrical signal Physical value


4 mA 0 0 Hz
20 mA 27648 50 Hz

The Analog outputs class can be used to normalize physical values using
measurement and rated range limits into electrical values and write them to
analog outputs. Invalid values can be replaced with a substitute value. To avoid
peaks in the output signal, you can define a ramp value that defines the
maximum change of the output value within a certain time.

C91 PIDC and C92 PIDS, controller
Fundamentals

24 C91 PIDC and C92 PIDS, controller

24.1 Fundamentals
A controller has the task to bring the actual value of a control circuit to a specific
value (setpoint) and then retain this value even when subject to disturbances.
This requires that the current actual value is acquired continually and compared
with the setpoint. Should there be a difference between the setpoint and the
actual value (of a control deviation), a control algorithm is used to calculate a
control value that is transferred to the actuator that should compensate for the
difference.

w Command variable Independent variable in the control circuit that
specifies the setpoint for the control variable.
(Setpoint)
xd Control difference xd = w - x
y Controlled variable Output value of the controller and controlling input
value of the control path.

Four operating modes are provided for the Plant iT controller:


Manual Closed-loop control
Automatic Closed-loop control
Manual Positioning
Automatic Positioning
In the Manual closed-loop control operating mode, the controller operates as
closed control circuit (see above figure). The setpoint is specified manually from
the PC.

C91 PIDC and C92 PIDS, controller
Class C91 PIDC, PID controller

In contrast, there is the Automatic Closed-loop control operating mode,


which although also operates a closed control circuit, the setpoint is fetched
from a source (e.g. a data word in the controller). This operating mode is used,
for example in sequences, to transfer various setpoints to the controller.
In the Positioning operating mode (manual or automatic) the controller
operates as an open control circuit, i.e. no setpoint but rather a control value is
specified. Because the actual value feedback is open, the actual value does not
have any effect on the controlled variable. In the Manual positioning operating
mode, the control value is specified manually from the PC; in the Automatical
positioning operating mode, the control value comes from a source in the
controller.

The C91 PIDC class permits the control of technical processes with continuous
input and output values.

C93 ALS, analog switch (8)
Function

25 C93 ALS, analog switch (8)

The C93 ALS class permits the selection of a numeric value from a group of up
to eight values depending on a control register.

25.1 Function
Objects of the C93 ALS class have eight inputs in the form of ITP pointers that
can be used to read numeric values. An additional ITP pointer is used to read a
control register. For values >0 for this control register, the input value that
corresponds to the highest active bit in the control register will be issued at the
output. For the value 0, a parameterized default will be output.
In simulation, independent of the control register, the operator can select one of
eight values. The control register is not read in manual mode. Instead, the
operator can determine the output value.

C95 MC, motor
Function

26 C95 MC, motor

The C95 MC class is used to manage and control motors with one or two
activations. In addition to the feedbacks, inputs are provided for the motor
protection, repair switch and main contactor.

26.1 Function
Many motor actuators in process plants, in particular for conveyor systems,
must be monitored with additional alarm signals. Each of the four additional
input signals can have its own name and be set with its own delay and
tolerance times.
Signal 0 at a used alarm input causes shutdown of the drive. The cause is
entered as message in the signaling system.
The class supports the following types of drives:
Unipolar drives
Two-speed dual-pole drives
Two-rotational-direction dual-pole drives
Dual-pole drives with smooth start (wye-delta switch-over)
Motorized sliders (electric or hydraulic drives for opening or closing sliders,
valves or gates)
For the integration in a user program, in addition to the interface to the OCM
logic, a status/control interface is provided.
