SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Engineering Software V9.0 (PO unlimited)
The SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Engineering Software (PO unlimited) is available for configuring SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS engineering stations. The software covers the OS engineering and OS connection of the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers. It also supports a 2-hour OS runtime test mode. It is, however, not suitable for continuous OS runtime operation during production.
The SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Engineering Software V9.0 contains the following components:
SIMATIC PCS 7 AS/OS Engineering Software V9.0 according to the ST PCS 7 catalog, section “ES Software”
SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS DBA Database Engineering Package for the migration of user data
APACS+ OS Server Channel DLL for communication with APACS+/QUADLOG controllers
SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Library with OS symbols and OS faceplates
OPC Engineering plug-in for connection of third-party controllers (e.g. Allen-Bradley)

Data Base Automation (DBA) tool for generation of the SIMATIC PCS 7 OS database
A core component for the SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Engineering is the Data Base Automation SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS DBA. It automatically generates the OS database with the display hierarchy, required tags, alarm messages and alarm priorities as well as the specific block icons and faceplates from the data of the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers. The display hierarchy is the basis for navigation between the process pictures and for alarm management. SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS DBA automatically positions the type-specific block icons, e.g. for controllers or analog inputs (AI), in the generated process pictures. These block icons are linked to the associated function blocks and faceplates through the database. Manual configuration is mainly limited to the design and positioning of the static graphic elements, for example, pipes or tanks.
APACS+ OS Server Channel DLL
The APACS+ OS server 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 connection of APACS+/QUADLOG controllers using the CP 1623 communications processor in conjunction with the Industrial Ethernet module IEM, as well as direct connection to the MBUS using an APACS+/QUADLOG MBI PCI card.
SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS Library
The SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS library contains the following types of symbols and faceplates:
Symbol and faceplate types of the SIMATIC PCS 7/APACS+ OS library
Process control functions
Single loop SS
Process I/O functions
Block valve 1 out
Block valve 2 out
Valve A alarm
Motor 1 out
Motor 2 out
Motor A alarm
The PCS 7/APACS+ OS symbols and faceplates developed in line with the SIMATIC PCS 7 standard take into account the special properties of the APACS+/QUADLOG controllers.
OPC engineering plug-in
An additional component in DBA enables engineering of OPC connections to any third-party systems, e.g. for interfacing Allen-Bradley controllers. In addition to process values, the plug-in can be used to integrate messages and alarms from third-party systems into the PCS 7 OS database. Analogous to APACS+, the OPC component supports automatic generation of the OS plant hierarchy as well as positioning of the corresponding block icons. The engineering overhead for integrating third-party systems can thus be drastically reduced.
