SIMOCODE pro has been managing constant-speed, low-voltage motors for 50 years. It provides comprehensive protective, monitoring, and control functions. Enjoy the benefits of detailed operating, servicing, and diagnostics data – also for fail-safe disconnection of motors. Communication via PROFIBUS, PROFINET / PROFIsafe, Modbus RTU, and Ethernet IP and OPC UA – which also lets you take advantage of the cloud.
Precise measurement is especially important in potentially explosive areas like those found in the chemical industry. Reliable dry-run protection is essential to prevent centrifugal pumps from running dry. Until now, the liquid level in pipes has been monitored using high-maintenance, fault-prone sensors.
With the new SIMOCODE pro current/voltage modules, Siemens provides innovative monitoring technology that breaks away from conventional pump monitoring and redefines dry-run protection. Whereas conventional dry-run detection follows a response chain from the dry-run sensor to the pump via the process controller, SIMOCODE pro can monitor the pump’s status via the pump motor’s active-power input. There’s no need to install additional monitoring devices or external measuring sensors. SIMOCODE pro offers many benefits compared with earlier sensor detection:
- Higher measuring accuracy
- Earlier fault detection
- Reduced hardware
- No maintenance effort
- Cost and time savings
- Reliable plant monitoring according to ATEX and IECEx criteria
SIMOCODE pro monitors motors with rated motor currents up to 820 A. Therefore, different current measuring modules are available. Instead of current measuring modules, for SIMOCODE pro V you can also use current/voltage measuring modules. This allows you to not only measure motor current, but also voltages up to 690 V and monitor power-related measured quantities.
The operator panel is used to control the motor starter. It can be built into a control cabinet door and features IP54 as degree of protection. Thus, SIMOCODE pro or the starter can be directly operated from the control cabinet. The system interface integrated in the operator panel at the front allows for convenient PC/PG based parameter assignment and diagnostics directly at the control cabinet door. Attaching an addressing plug or memory module allows for the quick transmission of PROFIBUS addresses or even the complete parameter setting of your feeder. To be able to read measuring values, operational and diagnostics data fast and easily at the control cabinet, the operator panel for SIMOCODE pro V is optionally available with a display and menu navigation in 8 different languages. In addition, the operator panel offers the possibility to read out the internal device fault memory.
Enhance your entry-class motor management with just one more module for even more functionality:
Increase the type and number of digital input and relay outputs of SIMOCODE pro V step-by-step by using digital modules. This allows you to:
In parallel to the thermistor motor protection, you can easily integrate up to three analog temperature sensors (e.g. PT100, PT1000, KTY, NTC) into your process by using the temperature module. This allows for easier monitoring of bearing, gear oil and coolant temperature.
SIMOCODE pro is employed in SIVACON S8 boards in fixed-mounted or withdrawable design and facilitates the assembly of powerful, yet at the same time extremely space-saving, load feeders with communication capability.
Thanks to the initialization module for SIMOCODE pro, power distribution board and motor management system grow together even more closely: With the withdrawable design frequently to be found in motor control centers, the initialization module is permanently integrated in the power distribution board. As a result, feeder-related parameter and address data are precisely assigned to the respective feeder. When the withdrawable module is replaced, the new component is automatically initialized with the correct parameters.
SIMOCODE pro supports the PROFINET system redundancy function. SIMOCODE pro motor management devices can be directly linked to high-availability systems with two controllers, without the need for any further hardware. Especially in the case of complex automation tasks in the process industry, where the focus is on system availability and redundancy of the control system, reliable communication with the H-CPU is important. Both controllers belonging to the H system always have access to the SIMOCODE pro field device. In the event of a cable break or CPU failure, the other one takes over. This ensures seamless communication.
Advantages at a glance:
The web diagnostics function integrated in SIMOCODE pro facilitates global access to all important online information for diagnostics and service purposes (with PROFINET and EtherNet/IP). Relevant data can even be accessed via a PC with standard web browser: Either directly on-site or remotely via the Internet. Detailed status information on the motor, current measured values such as current and power, fault memory as well as service and statistical data can be transparently displayed via device-internal websites.
With SIMOCODE ES, you benefit from numerous advantages, including convenient parameterization in the device view, graphical commissioning via drag & drop, and online representation of signal states using straightforward measuring curves for diagnostic purposes.
The PCS 7 SIMOCODE library enables simple and easy integration of SIMOCODE pro into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system. The PCS 7 library contains standardized motor blocks and faceplates for controlling or operating and monitoring the motor. For the plant-wide device parameter setting and diagnostics, SIMOCODE pro is also integrated into SIMATIC PDM (Process Device Manager). This means that a standard, unified tool is embedded in the process control system for intelligent field devices such as SIMOCODE pro.
Advantages at a glance
Configuration and commissioning of SIMOCODE pro can also be realized in the TIA Portal without additional software.
As device configuration forms part of STEP 7, each individually-created configuration is loaded into the PLC and automatically transferred to the SIMOCODE pro devices connected via PROFIBUS/PROFINET.
Advantages at a glance
SIMOCODE pro means much more than just motor management. The ongoing development of devices with new measurement modules and connection to the cloud, simple engineering, and reliable utilization in a variety of areas in the process industries make SIMOCODE pro an incredibly powerful product family for maximum process quality. And take advantage of greater transparency, safety, and efficiency with cloud connection.
