At this point you screen level can control and monitor the process by means of suitable screens and stan- dard screens and perform system settings. With reference to the standard screens, a description is provided below of the procedure for branching between individual screens within the screen hierar- chy.
Basic screen OP7 Events Alarms >> Figure 4-4 Branching at Screen Level (for OP7) Selecting screens You select a screen by pressing the soft key assigned to it during configura- tion. Use the horizontal scroll function << and >> if the required screen segment is not within the visible display area.
Screens Displaying and On the OP, the process – for example, a processing machine or a mixing unit influencing the – is displayed on screens and manipulated. The screens are configured by the process on configurer for specific users. screens On screens, associated process values are acquired and provide an overview of a process or system.
Screen Entries Displaying a Screens consist of entries. Every screen may contain up to 99 entries. Irre- screen entry spective of the configured number of lines, precisely one entry is displayed per display page on the OP. Lines which may have not been fully configured are displayed as blank lines.
Selecting Screens Methods of Screens can be viewed on the OP and serviced (edited) and printed. Before selecting screens this is possible, they have to be selected. A screen can readily be selected by means of soft key, function key, directory, PLC job.
Editing Screens Procedure Screens can be manipulated, i.e. edited, by means of entries in input fields and combined I/O fields. To edit a screen, proceed as follows: Step Procedure Select the screen you wish to edit as described in section 5.2. The cursor jumps to the first input field.
Password Protection Access protection Password protection can be configured for function keys/soft keys and input fields in order to permit only authorized persons to work with the OP. Password Levels and Access Password When configuring with ProTool, the function keys/soft keys and input fields hierarchy are assigned hierarchically ordered password levels from 0 to 9, 0 being the lowest and 9 the highest level in the hierarchy.
Supervisor The supervisor password is specified during configuration. The default set- password ting in the standard configuration is “100”. This setting can be changed on the OP. Format The password must be a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 8 characters long. It can be made up of digits and the characters A to F.

Messages Overview Messages displayed on the OP indicate events and states in the control pro- cess. A message consists of at least static text and can also include tags. The following types of message are displayed on the OP: event messages, alarm messages and system messages.
Message types Event and alarm Event and alarm messages are configured. Event messages indicate a status messages in the process, alarm messages indicate faults/errors. Event and alarm mes- sages are initiated by the PLC. Due to their critical nature, alarm messages have to be acknowledged.
Standby message A sub-category of the event message is the standby message. The standby message is the event message number 0. It appears on the display when the OP is operating at the message level and event or alarm messages are not waiting.
Message bit If there is a condition present in the current process for a message to be procedure issued – for example, a tag has been reached – a bit is set by the PLC ap- plication program in the data area for event and alarm messages. The OP reads the data area after a configured polling time.
Operation To inhibit an alarm message, press the following keys simultaneously The OP acknowledges inhibition of the alarm message by means of system message $ 335. After that, this message will not be displayed until the next time the OP starts up. Inhibited alarm messages are no longer inserted into the alarm buffer from the time of inhibition, either.
7.1.3 System messages Definition System messages indicate operating states within the OP. For example, they draw your attention to maloperations or a breakdown in communication. This message type has top display priority. If a relevant fault occurs on the OP, the active event message or alarm message is removed from the display and a system message is issued in its place.
Displaying Messages Display Event and alarm messages are always output to the display at message level and are displayed according to display and message priorities. If several messages having identical display and message priorities exist si- multaneously, the most recent is displayed in all cases, for both event and alarm messages.
7.2.1 Display Sequences Message length Event and alarm messages can be configured with up to 80 characters and displayed either separately or together. Single message With this display sequence, only one alarm message, event message or display (setting system message is shown on the display. On the OP17 four messages are ”separate”) displayed in the case of 8 x 40 representation.
Example The event messages (EM) and alarm messages (AM) illustrated below are queued on the OP. Message level 11:50 EM 02 12:00 EM 04 12:08 EM 07 11:54 AM 01 11:55 AM 05 12:01 AM 08 7.2.3 Viewing Event and Alarm Message Text Viewing Messages Irrespective of the current contents of the event or alarm buffer, all config- ured event and alarm message text can be shown on the OP.
Message Buffers Purpose Messages displayed on the OP are written to the message buffer concerned. The message buffers can be called to view message history by means of standard screens. The times of occurrence, acknowledgment and departure are displayed in chronological order for all messages.
Cursor keys You can use the cursor keys to select and deselect the message texts of a mes- sage and to scroll through the message list. Result Displays the message text for the message selected. Deselects the message text and returns to the message list.
Deleting Messages Purpose All message events for event and alarm messages are automatically stored in the event message buffer or alarm message buffer respectively. Each of these buffers has space for up to 256 events. To prevent a buffer overflow, event and alarm messages must be deleted from their buffers.
7.4.2 Deleting alarm and event messages via standard screens Procedure Standard screens can be used to delete all (not individual) acknowledged and departed alarm messages all (not individual) arrived and departed event messages. To delete event and alarm messages, proceed as follows: Step Procedure Depending on the type of message you want to delete, choose...
Printing Messages How to print out You can print alarm and event messages as a direct message log (refer to section 7.5.1), as a full printout of the message buffer (refer to section 7.5.2), upon buffer overflow (refer to section 7.4.1). 7.5.1 Direct Message Logging Print time...
7.5.2 Printing the Message Buffer Sequence Messages from the alarm or event buffers, but not the system buffer, can be printed chronological, all messages contained in the buffer of the message type concerned are printed in the order in which they are contained in the buffer together, all messages contained in the buffer of the type of message concerned are printed in ascending message number order.
Recipes Purpose Recipes are combinations of tags for a certain purpose. The purpose of recipes is to transfer data together to the PLC. This involves synchronization between the OP and PLC. Data records When configuring you define not only the recipe but the data structure too. The structure is assigned data at the OP.
Components of a A recipe consists of a series of recipe entries. Each entry contains a maxi- recipe mum of one input field (i.e., tag). Depending on the configuration, either direct or symbolic value input can be used in an input field. The recipe called Mixture could be set up from the following entries.
Standard screen The standard screen Records offers you the following functions: for data records Record Edit: Creating, editing and deleting data records. Record Print: Printing out data records on a printer. Record Transfer: Transferring data records from the OP to the PLC or from the PLC to the Directory for Recipes are combined into a recipe directory which can be used to indicate recipes...
Creating and Editing Data Records Default The OP automatically creates a data record with the number 1 and the name ”data record” for each recipe. All values of the data records are preset with 0. You can edit this data record. To create more data records, either copy this data record (see chapter 8.2), or edit this data record and save it under a different name.
As long as you have not confirmed an input value, you can terminate editing with ESC. The old value is then displayed again. Storing a changed To save a changed data record as a new data record, do not overwrite the data record as a called data record when exiting the input screen.
Copying Data Records Overview There are two ways to copy a data record. You can call an existing data record for editing, and save it unchanged under a new number and, if necessary, under a new name. Then make your changes. Save an existing record via data record transfer under a new number and, if necessary, under a new name.
Transferring Data Records Overview A transfer screen offering the following functions is available for transferring data records. Before a changed or newly set up data record in a recipe can become effective in the PLC, it must first be transferred via data record transfer to the PLC.
Example of entering source and destination: PLC Transfer Source Destina- Description tion Source data record 11 is an existing data record on the OP and is to become the active data record on the PLC (destination). OP Transfer Source Destina- Description tion The source data record 0 is the active data record on the PLC...
Using the transfer Proceed as follows to transfer a data record. screen Step Procedure Select the standard screen Record Transfer. Select the recipe in the recipe directory Position the cursor on the Source field in the transfer screen. Depending on the direction of transfer desired, enter the appropriate source number (see examples), and confirm.
Deleting Data Records Note Data records of a recipe can be deleted from the data record directory. These data records are then no longer available for the recipe. When a data record which is active in the PLC is deleted from the directory of the OP, this data record still continues to be active in the PLC.
STATUS/FORCE VAR with the OP Purpose The operator panel offers you the two functions STATUS VARand FORCE VAR which enable you to display and modify operand values from the con- nected SIMATIC S5/S7/M7 PLC via standard screens. In online mode, this means that PLC operands can be edited directly on the OP without having to connect a programming unit/PC to the PLC.
FORCE VAR You call FORCE VAR by means of the standard screen ForceVAR. Following the call, the operand list is displayed. Depending on the display, an operand is displayed on either one or two lines. Figure 9-1 shows the display for the SIMATIC S5 on the OP17 (8 x 40 repre- sentation).
Displaying PLC Step Procedure operands Press SHIFT Select the data type you wish to have displayed using the cursor keys. Press ENTER The corresponding data format is set automatically in the format field. Shift Lock mode is de-activated at the same time. Going to numbers Step Procedure...

They include: Selecting a language, Modifying parameters for OP interfaces, printers, message display, date and time, Adjusting display contrast, Setting OP mode.
10.2 Modifying Parameters in Online Mode Modifying inter- The parameters set as default parameters for the OP interfaces during confi- face parameters guration can be modified by means of standard screens. To do this, proceed as follows: Step Procedure Depending on the OP you are using, choose one of the standard screens marked System settings Scroll through the parameter list on the display using the arrow keys to the parameter you require.
Setting first/last To define whether the oldest or the most recent alarm messages (for first/last message display message refer to section 7.2) is displayed when several are waiting to be displayed, proceed as follows: Step Procedure Choose the standard screen System settings DispMsg.
10.3 Adjusting Contrast Settings On the OP7 and OP17, you can adjust the contrast of the LCD. The display contrast can be adjusted by means of direct adjustment or a standard screen. Direct contrast The display contrast of the LCD can be adjusted at all times in normal mode adjustment by means of direct control: Step...
10.4 Setting OP Modes Modes You can set the following OP modes by means of standard screens: Online, Offline, Download and Loop-Through (OP17 only). Online This the default operating mode for unrestricted control and visualization of the process. In Online mode, there is a logical link between the OP and the PLC, or the OP tries to establish a link.
Process-Dependent Operator Guidance Situation-specific Different action is normally required or allowed in different operating process control situations. To support changing requirements during process control, you can configure the following measures, which provide the operator with situation- specific purposeful help: screen-dependent soft keys, global function keys and user-defined screen hierarchies.
Assignments of You can assign the following functions to function keys and soft keys: function keys and branch to message level, soft keys select screen, initiate a print job, display directory, modify parameters in online mode. Password level A password level may be assigned to a function key or a soft key. This means assignment that you can make functions, such as ”Modify parameters in online mode”, available only to authorized persons.
11.2 Self-Defined Screen Hierarchy Defining the The screen hierarchy can be adapted to system-specific requirements and be screen hierarchy modified either in part or in whole. Screens can be removed or added. Screens can be linked together in random order. The design, sequence of the link, inclusion in the screen directory and the relevant cross-jump destina- tions are defined during configuration with ProTool.
Example The OP is used to operate and monitor a system for producing and bottling different fruit juices. The system consists basically of a mixing unit and a bottling machine. Mixing unit The ingredients for the fruit juices are contained in three tanks. Depending on the juice that you wish to manufacture, ingredients are mixed in certain ra- tios.
If you press the ”Tank2” soft key, the entry displayed in figure 11-4 appears. This entry contains static text and two output fields (Tank Contents and Set Temperature) as well as an input field (Valve Position) The position of the tank valve can be set in the input field by means of a symbolic value input –...
Schedulers (OP17 only) Definition Depending on the configuration, you can specify so-called schedulers for the OP17. A scheduler is a regularly recurring point in time (i.e., hourly, daily, weekly, annually) at which a certain function is to be executed. Up to 48 schedulers and their corresponding functions can be configured A scheduler is contained in a screen entry where it can be entered, changed or deactivated when the screen is displayed.
Functions The following functions can be called via schedulers. Print alarm message buffer (chronologically or together) Print event message buffer (chronologically or together) Select screen Print screen Print data record Displaying The schedulers have already been preset via configuration. A scheduler can schedulers be changed or deactivated via input fields in a screen entry.
Controlling the OP from the PLC Common data The OP and the application program communicate with each other by alter- areas nately reading from and writing to the data areas in the memory of the PLC. Thus the PLC and the OP can make each other execute different actions by evaluating data areas.
Function keyboard With pressing a function key, it can be used to set a bit on the PLC, where it image is evaluated by the application program. For this, you must have created the necessary data area on the PLC for the keyboard image and have specified the appropriate area pointer in the confi- guration for assigning the key to a bit.
Installation Mounting location Operator Panels OP7 and OP17 are suitable for fitting into control cabinets and conditions and consoles. Before you install an OP, you must cut out a section of the front panel (moun- ting cutout) (see chapter 16). The front panel must not be thicker than 6 mm. No other drilled holes are required for mounting.
14.1 Mechanical Installation Installing the OP Step Procedure Push the enclosed gasket from the rear over the housing and insert the OP from the front in the prepared mounting cutout. Take suitable measures to prevent the OP from falling out of the front panel before it is finally fixed in position.
Screw down or lock all plug connections. Do not install signal lines in the same cable ducts as high voltage lines. Siemens AG accepts no responsibility whatsoever for malfunctions and damage arising from the use of self-made cables or cables from other manufacturers.
14.2.1 Connecting the Power Supply Terminal Block There is a two-pin screw-type terminal on the lower side of the OP housing for connecting the power supply. The screw-type terminal is designed for cables having a cross-section not larger than 2.5 mm .

Configuring You can configure interface IF1B using the DIP switch at the rear of OP interface IF1B versions DP and DP-12. This involves changing over the RS422 receive data and the RTS signal. By default, the RTS signal is not required by the commu- nicating peer.
14.2.4 Loop-Through Mode (OP17 only) Connection The IF1 interface of the OP17 is optionally available for the loop-through Configuration mode of a configuration computer (PU or PC). This enables communication Scheme between the PU or PC and the PLC via the OP17. Standard cables are available for the connections in AS511 loop-through mode shown in Figure 14-4 (refer to the ST80.1 catalog).
Y cable is required for simultaneous operation of a printer. The PLC and printer, in this case, are operated with physically different interfaces. For attaching Siemens printers, there are standard cables available (refer to Catalog No. ST80.1). For other printers, you have to use the cables supplied or specially manufactured ones.
Settings The settings of parameters for the print functions, the printer interface and the printer are configured. Section 10.2 describes how you can modify the default printer parameters in Online mode. You will find the requisite printer settings in the User’s Manual for your printer.
Commissioning Diagrammatic The commissioning guide which follows explains the different steps that representation have to be taken to commission the OP. Figure 15-1 shows the most impor- tant steps for initial commissioning, recommissioning and normal operation of the OP. Initial Commissioning Recommissioning Normal Operation No configuration/firmware...
Before Before commissioning the OP, take note of the following: commissioning Caution With the SIMATIC S5, compression of the internal program memory of the PLC (PU ”Compress” function, integrated COMPR FB) is not al- lowed when an OP is connected. Compression modifies the absolute ad- dresses of the blocks in the program memory.
15.1 Initial commissioning Procedure Initial commissioning comprises loading the firmware required to enable the OP to function and the configuration onto the OP. You do this as follows: Step Procedure Switch on the OP’s power supply. Since a configuration has not yet been loaded at this point in time, the OP automatically switches to download mode and waits for data to be downloaded from the configuration computer (PC/PU).
15.2 Recommissioning Procedure If you want to replace a configuration already loaded on the OP with another one, proceed as follows: Step Procedure Using a suitable standard cable, connect the configuration com- puter (PU or PC) to the interface of the OP: IF1A for OP7 IF2 for OP17 Switch on the power supply of the OP.
15.3 Start-up Behavior After the power supply has been turned on, the OP performs a Self test self test. In the test, it checks the operability of the most impor- tant device components and displays the test results. If there is not a configuration on the OP, the OP switches auto- OP starts up matically to Download mode.
15.4 Testing the Configuration in OFFLINE Mode Purpose In OFFLINE mode, you can test the different functions and the configura- tions downloaded from the PC or PU independently of the PLC. In OFFLINE mode, tags are not updated. Procedure Step Procedure Switch the OP to OFFLINE mode using the standard screen System settings...
15.5 Testing the Configuration in Conjunction with the PLC Test with PLC Once the tests in OFFLINE mode have been performed successfully, the OP connected is tested in conjunction with the PLC that you connected. This test deter- mines whether the correct data areas have been configured. Procedure Step Procedure...
15.6 Testing Communication via the PROFIBUS-DP Bus fault LED Mounted on the rear side of unit variants DP and DP-12 is a bus fault LED (figure 15-2). When the OP is connected to SIMATIC S7, this LED indicates that communication between the OP and the PLC over PROFIBUS-DP is OK by lighting up constantly.
