Diagnostics with the maintenance station (asset management)

With PCS 7 V6.1 and higher, a PCS 7 system can be fully diagnosed with the help of the
maintenance station. The maintenance station is an operator station that is specially configured
and assigned parameters for use in diagnostic and maintenance functions.
We particularly recommend the use of a maintenance station in medium and large PCS 7
Maintenance station
With the maintenance station, PCS 7 enables you to call up information on the states of all
PCS 7 components on diagnostics screens which are hierarchically structured. As part of this
process, the data of a component are analyzed using the available online functions of the
associated tools. You can access ES data from the diagnostics screens (can be controlled via
access protection mechanisms).
Screens for process-control diagnostics can be generated automatically for the entire PCS 7
system and made available on the maintenance station. The top level forms an overview
screen for the entire system.
Diagnostics options
You will find information on the states of individual PCS 7 components with diagnostic capability
on the maintenance station's special diagnostics screens.
