  • Content of message buffer is retained even when panel is disconnected without batteries

SIMATIC TP 177B INOX Benefits

  • Reduction of service and commissioning costs due to:
    • Backup/restore via a process interface or optionally via a Multimedia Card
    • Download of the image and configuration across all device interfaces
    • Maintenance-free design and long service life of backlit display
  • Data in the message buffer is retained even if panel is switched off, without battery.
  • Can be used worldwide:
    • 32 languages can be configured (incl. Asian and Cyrillic character sets)
    • Online language can be selected directly on the device
  • Graphics library available with off-the-shelf picture objects
  • Standard interfaces for increasing the flexibility:
    • Ext. Multimedia Card, can be used for recipe data records and backing up of configuration/system data;
  • Integrated USB interface for connecting, for example, standard printers
  • Simple engineering supported by comprehensive documentation on the SIMATIC HMI Manual Collection DVD
  • Integral component of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA):
  • Increase of productivity, minimization of engineering overhead, reduction of lifecycle costs
  • Due to the stainless steel front of the panel, it can also be optimally used in the food and beverages and pharmaceutical industries. Its front is designed such that it can be cleaned and disinfected easily. Furthermore, liquids flow off automatically from the front. In addition, the stainless steel front (including gasket) provides protection against contamination by foods.

Application

Thanks to their practical functions and large user memory, TP 177B INOX Touch Panels can be used wherever operator control and monitoring of machines and plants is necessary on site – whether in production automation, process automation, or building-services automation. The TP 177B INOX has a 5.7″ STN display with 256 colors and features an integrated PROFINET I/O interface. A USB interface is standard. A further highlight is the non-volatile message buffer included as standard that stores messages permanently without battery backup.

The TP 177B INOX has been designed for all industries that require a stainless steel front. The front can be disinfected and does not affect the quality e.g. of foods (assuming regular cleaning). Cleaning can be carried out using pressurized water with a jet of 100 l/min at 1 bar from a distance of 2.5 to 3 m. Liquids flow off automatically from the front.

Function

  • Permanent window and templates concept
    for creating screen models
  • Input/output fields
    for visualizing and editing process parameters
  • Configurable buttons with up to 16 functions simultaneously
    for direct triggering of functions and actions
  • Indicator light
    for indicating machine and plant statuses
  • Predefined texts
    for labeling function keys, process images and process values in any character size
  • Help texts
    for process screens, messages and variables
  • Vector graphics, graphics
    can be used as icons instead of text for “labeling” buttons. They can also be used as full-screen background images.
  • The configuration tool contains a library with extensive graphics and diverse objects. All editors with an OLE interface (e.g., PaintShop, Designer or CorelDraw) can be used as graphics editors.
  • Curve functions and bars
    are used for graphical display of dynamic values
  • Dynamic positioning of objects and dynamic showing/hiding of objects
  • Arithmetic functions, limit value monitoring
    for reliable process control with inputs and outputs
  • Online language switching
    with 16 selectable languages, incl. Asian and Cyrillic languages, also for language-dependent graphics
  • Scheduler
    for cyclic function execution
  • Password protection (security)
    User management – authentication by means of user ID and password, plus privileges specific to user groups, which is an integral part of SIMATIC
  • Signaling system
    Freely definable message classes (acknowledgement behavior and display can be configured). Administration of status, fault and system messages. The alarm history is retained even if the device is switched off. Analog alarms (limit value messages) in addition to discrete alarms.
  • Recipe management:
    With additional data storage (on ext. storage medium)
  • Online/offline processing on the panel
  • Storage of recipe data in standard Windows format (CSV)
  • External processing using standard tools such as Excel and Access is possible
  • Multimedia Card slot
    for external standard data carriers, can be used for backup/restore or for transporting recipe data sets;
  • User-friendly maintenance and configuration thanks to:
    • Backup and restoration of the configuration, operating system, data records and firmware on a PC using ProSave
    • Option to download/upload the configuration via all device interfaces (with automatic transfer detection)
    • Individual contrast setting and calibration
    • Configuration simulation directly on the configuration computer
Configuration

Configuration is implemented using the innovative engineering tool SIMATIC WinCC flexible 2005, Compact Edition or higher. SIMATIC WinCC flexible is the logical further development of the field-proven ProTool family. Projects generated using ProTool can be easily migrated to WinCC. When implementing OP17 projects, the project engineer must implement corresponding adaptations after the conversion due to the innovated display technology. However, WinCC flexible provides support for this! If WinCC flexible is started direct from SIMATIC Manager, the data in Step 7 can be accessed directly when configuring the panel. Duplicated data input and data management is, therefore, avoided.

Additional options
  • SINUMERIK
    Optionally with “Sinumerik HMI copy license WinCC flexible CE”. The “SINUMERIK HMI engineering package WinCC flexible” is additionally required for configuration. For further information, see Catalog NC 60.
  • [email protected]
    Remote control and monitoring of SIMATIC HMI systems based on TCP/IP networks
  • [email protected]
    Communication between HMI systems based on TCP/IP networks. Remote access to recipe data records, passwords, HMI system-specific information, and much more.
