SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OPERATOR SYSTEM

The SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS software offered for migration of APACS+ operator systems is tailored to the architecture of the SIMATIC PCS 7 operator system. It supports both single-user systems as well as multi-user systems in client-server architecture.

Data from different systems can be displayed in one process picture on the OS clients of a multiuser system, both from APACS/QUADLOG controllers on the M bus and from the SIMATIC PCS 7 automation systems on the Industrial Ethernet. The multi-client architecture of the operator systems enables a client to retrieve data from different servers.

With smaller client-server systems it is possible to use a SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS server with dual-channel functionality. This implements the communication with the APACS/QUADLOG controllers and the SIMATIC PCS 7 automation systems via two separate communication channels.

Notes:

The SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS V9.0 runtime software is based on the SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 operator system.

DESIGN

The following software components are required depending on the configuration of the SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ operator system as a single station or client/server combination (single or redundant server):

REQUIRED SOFTWARE

SIMATIC PCS 7 ARCHITECTURE

OS single station

Client/server
(non-redundant server)

Client/server
(redundant server)

SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Single Station Pack V9.0 (2 000 PO)

SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Server Pack V9.0 (2 000 PO)

SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Redundant Server Pack V9.0 (2 000 PO)

SIMATIC PCS 7 OS Software Client V9.0

(See section “OS Software” in ST PCS 7 catalog)

The number of process objects (PO) supplied with the software components in the table is expandable with SIMATIC PCS 7 OS Runtime licenses from the “OS Software” section of the ST PCS 7 catalog. In this section of the catalog, you can also select additional software for SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ operator systems.

Appropriate basic hardware for a PCS 7/APACS+ operator station as a single station, server or client version can be found in the section “Industrial Workstation/IPC” of the ST PCS 7 catalog.

Communication between the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers on the M-Bus and the SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS on the Industrial Ethernet plant bus usually takes place via the Industrial Ethernet module IEM (see last paragraph of this section). In the case of small configurations with limited expansion, a SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS station can also be directly linked to an APACS+ MBUS segment by means of an APACS+/QUADLOG MBI PCI card.

(Single Station/Server/Redundant Server)

The following software products are available for configuration of SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS operator stations:

  • SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Single Station Pack V9.0 (2 000 PO) for a single station
  • SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Server Pack V9.0 (2 000 PO)1) for one server
  • SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Redundant Server Pack V9.0 (2 000 POs)1) for a redundant pair of servers

They are equipped with:

  • SIMATIC PCS 7 OS Software Runtime V9.0 (2 000 PO, including 512 archive tags)
  • APACS+ OS channel for communication with the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers
  • Library with SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS symbols and OS faceplates
  • OS software for redundant operation (SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Software Server Redundancy)

The APACS+ OS channel DLL implements reliable communication with the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers using an original SIMATIC PCS 7 driver, and simultaneously permits communication with the AS 41x controllers by dual channel. It supports the Industrial Ethernet interfacing via the CP 1623 communications processor as well as the connection to the MBUS of APACS+ via Industrial Ethernet and IEM.

The SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS symbols and OS faceplates developed in line with the SIMATIC PCS 7 standard take into account the special properties of the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers.

1) The standard OS client of SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 is used to expand SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ client/server architectures.
