Entry-level motor management using Profinet

By Nick Flaherty

The Simocode pro V PN GP now has a Profinet connection, which facilitates easy entry into Profinet communication to be part of the Interent of Things (IoT). The basic unit adds a current measuring module and options for an operator control block and a multifunction module – with additional inputs/outputs, and temperature and ground fault detection. The system is suitable for direct-on-line, reversing, and star-delta (wye-delta) starters as well as for controlling a soft starter.

The Simocode pro motor management system monitors, protects and controls constant-speed motors, and is equipped with predictive maintenance functions. In this way, Simocode pro reveals potential problems on a motor before they can occur. This enables plant stoppages to be avoided and efficiency to be increased. Simocode pro also delivers detailed operating, service and diagnostic data from the entire process. Engineering of the motor management system is easy via the TIA Portal, as is integration into process control systems.
