Purpose of the ManualThis manual will help you when selecting, configuring, and assigning parameters to a controller block for your control task. The manual introduces you to the functions of the configuration tool and explains how you use it.

Required Basic KnowledgeTo understand this manual, you should be familiar with automation and process control engineering. In addition, you should know how to use computers or devices with similar functions (e.g programming devices) under Windows 95/98/2000 or NT operating systems. Since Standard PID Control is based on the STEP 7 software, you should also know how to operate it. This is provided in the manual Programming with STEP 7 V5.1.

Where is this Manual valid?This manual is valid for the software packages Standard PID Control V5.1 and Standard PID Control Tool V5.1.

Function Blocks



The Standard PID Control software product includes three separate products: The product Standard PID Controller FB consists essentially of the two controller blocks PID_CP and PID_ES. The product Standard PID Control Tool consists essentially of the tools for configuring the controller blocks. This product is referred to simply as configuration tool in this manual. This manual is a separate product and describes both the product Standard PID Control FB and the configuration tool Standard PID Control Tool.

The Standard PID Control Software PackageThe Standard PID Control software package provides a comprehensive concept for implementing control functions in the SIMATIC S7 programmable logic controllers. The controller is completely programmed with its full range of functions and features for signal processing. To adapt a controller to your process, you simply select the subfunctions you require from the complete range of functions. The time and effort required for configuration is therefore reduced to omitting functions you do not require. In all these tasks, you are supported by the configuration tool. Since configuration is restricted to selecting or, in some cases, extending basic functions, the concept of the Standard PID Control is easy to learn. Even users with only limited knowledge of control systems will create high-quality controls.

Finding Your Way Chapter 1 provides you with an overview of the Standard PID Control. Chapter 2 explains the structure and the functions of the Standard PID Control. Chapters 3 helps you to design and start up a Standard PID Control. Chapters 4 explains the signal processing in the setpoint/process-variable channel and in the controller. Chapters 5 explains the signal processing in the continuous controller output. Chapters 6 explains the signal processing in the step controller output. Chapters 7 shows you how to work with the loop scheduler and introduces examples of controller structures. Chapters 8 contains technical data and block diagrams. Chapters 9 contains parameter lists for the Standard PID Control. Chapters 10 provides you with an overview of the configuration tool. Appendices A contains the literature list. Important terms are explained in the glossary. The index helps you to access areas containing keywords easily and fast.

AudienceThis manual is intended for the following readers: S7 programmers programmers of control systems operators service personnel

Conventions in the TextTo make it easier for you to find information in the manual, certain conventions have been used: First glance through the titles in the left margin to get an idea of the content of a section. Sections dealing with a specific topic either answer a question about the functions of the tool or provide information about necessary or recommended courses of action. References to further information dealing with a topic are indicated by (see Chapter x.y). References to other manuals and documentation are indicated by numbers in slashes /.../. These numbers refer to the titles of manuals listed in the Appendix. Instructions for you to follow are marked by a black dot. Sequences of activities are numbered or explained as explicit steps. Alternative courses of action or decisions you need to take are indicated by a dash.

Further InformationThis manual is intended as a reference work that provides you with the information you will require to work with the standard controller. You do, however, require a broader scope of information that is available in the following manuals: /70/, /71/, /100/, /101/, /231/, /232/, /234/, /352/.

Further SupportIf you have any technical questions, please get in touch with your Siemens representative or agent responsible.
