Multi Processor control system SIMATIC TDC
Performance, scalability and flexibility
SIMATIC TDC solves even complex drive, control and technology tasks with maximum quantity frameworks and shortest cycle times on one single platform. The system is used particularly for large plants in the process, energy and drive technology:
- Metal production and metal processing: Wire-drawing plants, stretcher levelers, bending and straightening machines, presses, circular arc type plants, rolling mills, upsetting devices, shearing and winding machines
- High Voltage Direct Current Transmission Systems (HVDC)
- Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS), e.g. Reactive Power Compensation solutions
The powerful processor modules of SIMATIC TDC allow the processing of maximum quantity frameworks in short cycle times down to 100 µs.
Tailored hardware configurations: From mounting a suitable number of processor modules for synchronous processor operation to the synchronous coupling of whole racks – with SIMATIC TDC the automation system can be scaled modularly over a wide range.
The engineering of even complex control structures is carried out efficiently with the SIMATIC standard languages CFC and SFC and an extensive function block library. The user gets a maximum flexibility by creating own user libraries based on ANSI C code.
SIMATIC TDC is a modular multi-processor system which consists of one or several subracks. The subracks (VMEbus standard) are equipped with processor, periphery and communication modules. For the connection to further automation components SIMATIC TDC supports the communication standards:
- Industrial Ethernet
