PLC - Analyzer Pro 5

Rotating equipment is the greatest source of unplanned shutdowns. The lack of advanced knowledge about equipment health makes predictive maintenance virtually impossible. Field intelligence via the PLC-Analyzer Pro 5 Software will monitor and diagnose equipment performance. Physical equipment, rotating equipment, and electrical systems will have their pulses monitored at all times. Equipment performance will compare to models and to the performance of similar equipment throughout the process. Personnel will know of issues before they disable the process. Availability and process stability will significantly improve. Thereby saving thousands of dollars in unnecessary downtime. An online display makes possible observation of the signal waveform in real time. Together with the terraLink® remote maintenance sys-tem, data can be acquired at every PLC directly from PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 over the any telephone or network.

PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 is a software system for logic analysis and acquisition of recorded data on PLC-controlled facilities. Acquisition, representation, and evaluation of PLC signals such as inputs, outputs, flags, data words, etc. is now very easy. Online display makes possible observation of the signal waveform in real time.

In addition to long-term recording, trigger conditions can be specified for the acquisition of particular events. This allows rarely occurring sporadic errors to be recorded for later analysis.

In contrast to traditional logic analyzers, the PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 has the decisive advantage of recording process data through standardized PLC inter-faces (e. g. SIMATIC S5 - programming unit interface), or by automation networks (e. g. SIMATIC S7 - MPI/PPI, Profibus or Industrial Ethernet). A computer that is connected for the purpose of programming the PLC can be used for recording process data without hardware modifications. The tiresome process of hooking up monitoring cables is now a thing of the past.

Cycle-precise recording is attractive because of the complete acquisition of measured values in each PLC cycle. By using the measurement interface AD_USB-Box® external voltage and current signals, which are not available in the PLC, can also be recorded.

Together with the terraLink® remote maintenance sys-tem, data can be acquired at every PLC directly from PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 over the public telephone network.

Project files make it possible to automate frequently recurring acquisition sessions for various facilities.

PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 is an indispensable tool for PLC software development, construction, installation, technical service and training.

New Features
  • User-friendly Siemens SIMATIC S7 Driver
    Acquisition through industrial Ethernet (TCP/IP). Cycle-precise signal acquisition with definite time precision (real-time).
  • AD_USB-Box®: Recording of external voltages and currents
    Special measuring adapter for recording up to 8 analog and 20 digital measured values, which are not available directly in the PLC. Easy connection of AD_USB-Box® by the USB-Port of the PC.
  • Direct comparison of signal files
    Recordings from two different signal files can be directly compared by overlapping. This allows, e.g., determining the presence of slow wear and tear.
  • Optimized signal display
    Signals in the online window can be shifted at will. Even changing the signal color is possible. For clear documentation you can assign self-defined symbol address and comments to every signal.
  • Significantly extended signal analysis
    New evaluation features such as display of state changes, longest/shortest high/low states, average of analog values, and much more make it easier for you to analyze signal files. Signals in the online window can be given a free text. Cursor position and time base are also stored in the signal file.
  • Automated recording
    A given project can be automatically opened and started by calling PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 with a corresponding project parameter. Data acquisition can be immediately started by simply clicking with the mouse on a project or signal file.
  • Remote maintenance by Internet or telephone
    If remote maintenance is activated, then PLC signals can be acquired over the public telephone network (in conjunction with terraLink®). Connection is made automatically when acquisition begins. With the appropriate software (e.g. NetMeeting) PLC remote diagnosis is even possible world-wide through the Internet.
  • Speedy project definition
    PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 features a project assistant that can be used to quickly create complex projects.
  • Improved display for analog values
    PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 gives you the means to display analog signals as bit patterns. Besides the usual decimal (KF), binary (KM), and hexadecimal (KH) display, number values can also be displayed in ASCII format (KC).
  • Extended export functionality for signal files
    Signal files can be exported as text files or graphic (bitmap) files. The time interval can be freely chosen.
  • Switch languages during operation
    Set the language you want to work with. During active operation you can choose between German and English.
  • New print functions
    Beside the signal display in color, a signal-file printout includes both the absolute address and the symbol address. In addition, the signal height can be adjusted to the paper size. The signal-file comments and the free text also appear on the printout.
  • Detailed help for errors
    For every error message there exists detailed help on possible sources of error.

Failure Diagnosis
  • Example: Limit switch monitoring (detector control):
  • Detector control MK is triggered on the flag’s falling edge (dashed line).
  • PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 makes the problem clear. There is something wrong at the end switch SR01 (see trigger), because it is active at the same time as SA01.
  • For clear documentation, every signal can be given free text as comment.
  • This type of data acquisition can be done within any desired recording time interval

Cycle Time Optimization
  • Example: Determination of dead time in a production facility in order to optimize run time:
  • The acknowledgement signals READY_1 to READY_8 signal the end of certain subprocesses that have all been started together with INIT.
  • With PLC-ANALYZER pro 5, you can see that
    station 3 (READY_3) was the last station to finish.
  • The time measurement function determines the working time of station 3 to be 37,5 seconds.
  • The measurement results show the design engineer that station 3 must be investigated further in order to increase system speed

Signal-File Comparison
  • Example: Comparison of two signal files for
    a rolling mill:
  • For the analysis the current recording from 16. March, 2001 is compared with an older recording from 19. January, 2001.
  • Visual comparison takes place by overlapping the signal files. Input bit I 32.2 serves as common reference point.
  • The time measurement function determines that the timer T1 started 2.55 s later. This strongly indicates slower running times in the system.
  • PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 can be used in this way to analyze differences in signal files (runtime slow-downs, wear and tear, ...)
