2 SIMOCODE Software Protection Communication Explanation: This screen allows you to….Enter in some application specific comments/descriptions.Set the PROFIBUS address and baud rateDisplays the part number of the selected SIMOCODEThe PROFIBUS address must be between and the baud rate for all slaves must match. Maximum baud rate for SIMOCODE-DP is 1.5M.This screen also allows you to jump to the order number screen as well.Demonstration:Select different PROFIBUS addresses by clicking on the pull-down arrow.
3 SIMOCODE Software Protection Explanation: This screen displays what SIMOCODE model (except for supply voltage) should be ordered for the application.The part number is determined by selectingCurrent RangeMonostable or BistableThermistor or Earth Fault DetectionWith a Bistable unit, outputs can retain last state after a power interruption.Thermistor units have internal earth fault detection.Demonstration:Change some of the selections and observe the change in the displayed part number.
4 SIMOCODE Software Protection Explanation: This screen shows the motor protection data.The SIMOCODE can be set up to either trip or issue a warning on an overload condition.The Trip Class has a selectable range from 5-30.Single phase and three phase motors can be monitored.Upon clearing of a fault, a manual or automatic reset can be selected.The trip level for a stalled rotor condition is adjustable.Cooling time is how long the SIMOCODE will wait before the outputs will energize again after an overload condition.Minimum time is 5 minutesCan be overridden using the “Emergency Start” function input.Idle Time is how long the SIMOCODE waits before it erases it’s thermal memory.Set Current is typically set to the FLA rating on the motor.
5 SIMOCODE Software Protection Explanation: Trip levels for the sensor input (Thermistor or Earth Fault Detection)are selected here.Analog or digital thermistor sensors are supported.No thermistor is a valid selection.The SIMOCODE demo case is setup for an analog thermistor input.
6 SIMOCODE Software Protection Explanation: On this screen the motor control function is selected. SIMOCODE supports several different control functions. Direct starter and reversing are the most popular.Run time determines how long the SIMOCODE checks for two conditions before a fault is issued. 1) If the SIMOCODE is in the OFF state, MSP is turned OFF and a start command is given. 2) SIMOCODE is in a normal run state, a stop command is given and current keeps flowing (Contactor held in). Can be deactivated with a time value of zero.Check-back time determines how long the SIMOCODE checks for two conditions before a fault is issued. 1) If the SIMOCODE is in the OFF state and current starts flowing (Contactor pushed in). 2) SIMOCODE is in a normal run state and current stops flowing (MSP turned off). Can be deactivated with a time value of zero.Lock-out time determines how long the SIMOCODE will wait before you can change motor direction.Demonstration:Run the motor for a short time under normal conditions the shut it off.Turn off the MSP. Try to start the motor. Motor trips out after a short time.Lengthen the value of “Run Time” to 3 seconds, download new configuration and retest. Observe delay in failure.
7 SIMOCODE Software Control Explanation: The Start/stop control of SIMOCODE can come from four general sources.Local pushbutton (Local Control)PLC/DCS system (Remote Control)HMI (Human Machine Interface)SIMOCODE Operator PanelWhich source is actively controlling the SIMOCODE is determined by the state of two input signals (S1 and S2).The output state (on/off) of the Group Control is determined by a combination of the selected input control (local/remote/PLC…), the selected motor control function (direct/reversing/….) and available fault inputs.Inching mode is used when a motor only runs while a button is pressed (No separate off button/signal required). Such as for jogging a motor.
8 SIMOCODE Software Control Explanation: Control sources can be enabled on blocked manually within each of the four possible control states.This could be used perhaps to block local control to start a machine while in remote mode (S1 and S2 both on) but allow local control to stop the motor.Demonstration:Run the demo normally showing control using the operator station.Change the operator station Left/Right from Free to Blocked by clicking on it.Download the new configuration and test.
9 SIMOCODE Software Logic Explanation: If CST bit is ON then the SIMOCODE does not want to see current flowing under any condition. If current flows then a fault will be detected and the output contactor signals will be turned off and the status of CST (test) will be turned on. If CST is OFF the SIMOCODE will look at the RUN Timer and Check-Back Timer and then look for current flowing or not flowing before a fault is detected.This allows the SIMOCODE to operate without requiring a motor actually running. Logic and data communications can be tested. During the test, if for some reason motor current does start to run, SIMOCODE sees this as a fault and shuts down immediately.For explanation of other signals refer to the SIMOCODE Terms document or system manual.Demonstration:Run the motor normally then stop it.Change the CST bit to always on and download the configuration.Turn off the MSP.Press FWD on the demo case. SIMOCODE contactor pulls in but no fault iss detected.Turn on the MSP. SIMOCODE faults immediately.
10 SIMOCODE Software Control Explanation: Selects the signal that drives the actual output contacts on the base SIMOCODE.Outputs can be driven directly from the contactor control bits or indirectly using logic or other signals.Output 1 selects forward motionOutput 2 selects reverse motionOutput 3 indicates forward motionOutput 4 indicates reverse motion.
11 SIMOCODE-DP Control Explanation: Similar to the outputs on the SIMOCODE base unit.Outputs on an expansion module can be driven by direct or logical based signals.
12 SIMOCODE-DP Control Explanation: The output state of the 6 LEDS on the operator panel are completely configurable.Signals can be direct or logic based.
13 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: SIMOCODE has 2 internal timers and counters.On-delay, Off-delay and pulse timers are supported.
14 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: SIMOCODE has three 3-input/1 output truth tables.Truth tables allows simple logic functions such as and/or to be programming reside in the SIMOCODE.Truth tables can be used to inhibit the contactor output to be energize until certain logic conditions are met.
15 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: The two available 5-input/2-output truth tales provide for more complicated logic to be programmed.
16 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: Signal states can be become alternating at two different rates.Flashing alternates at a 2Hz frequency and Flickering alternates at an 8 Hz rate.Demonstration:To demonstrate Flashing and how and output signal can be modified, select the input of the to (144) StatusOn1.Then change the out 3 on the basic from (144) StatusOn1 to (137) Flashing 1 output.Download the new configuration and run the motor in the forward direction.The output indicating forward motion now flashes.
17 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: Signal matching allows you to invert signal states or trigger on rising or falling edges.Easy compensation for incorrect contact block selected for input signals.
18 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: Similar to signal matching except status is retained after power loss.
19 SIMOCODE-DP Logic Explanation: Selects how the SIMOCODE/outputs will react under certain fault conditions.This is where Bistable units allow you to retain status
