  • What is a PLC?
  • How many PLCs is your bottom line depending on?
  • Do you have an up to date list of all PLC model types, part availability, program copies, and details for your company?
  • Do you have at least one trained person per shift, to maintain and troubleshoot your plant PLCs?
  • Does your maintenance personnel work with PLCs following written company or corporate policy, and procedures?
If you could not answer with confidence or you answered ‘No’ to any of the above questions, you need to read this article on maintenance management of PLCs. Why? Because the PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) are the brains of your operation. When the PLC is not functioning properly, lines shut down, plants shutdown, even city bridges and water stations could cease to operate. Thousands to millions could be lost by one little PLC in an electrical panel that you never even knew existed. But most importantly, damage to machine and personnel could result from improper maintenance management of your company’s PLCs.
What is a PLC?
First I’d like to explain in the most non-technical terms possible, What a PLC is. As this article is not just for the maintenance technician, but for maintenance managers, plant managers and corporate managers. A PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is the type of computer that controls most machines today. The PLC is used to control AND to troubleshoot the machine. The PLC is the brain of the machine. Without it, the machine is dead. The maintenance technicians we train, are the brain surgeons. That is how I explain it to my doctor any way. (His mouth drops open, “... you train brain surgeons?”)
Important Note: Just as a doctor asks the patient questions to figure out what is wrong, a maintenance technician asks the PLC questions to troubleshoot the machine. The maintenance technician uses a laptop computer to see what conditions have to be met in order for the PLC to cause an action to occur (like turn a motor on). In a reliable maintenance management environment, the maintenance technician will be using the PLC as a troubleshooting tool to reduce downtime.
A little more detailed definition of a PLC: A programmable controller is a small industrial strength computer used to control real world actions, based on its program and real world sensors. The PLC replaces thousands of relays that were in older electrical panels, and allows the maintenance technician to change the way a machine works without having to do any wiring. The program is typically in ladder logic, which is similar to the wiring schematics maintenance electricians are already accustomed to working with. Inputs to a PLC can be switches, sensors, bar codes, machine operator data, etc. Outputs from the PLC can be motors, air solenoids, indicator lights, etc.
How many PLCs is your bottom line depending on?
My company has had an ongoing PLC related global maintenance survey since the year 2000. The majority of the participants back in 2001, reported 3-6 PLCs in their facility, that they know of. Granted most participants are managers and don't open electrical panels much, but many of the participants are from fortune 500 companies having hundreds of employees. The odds are most of them have 12-30 PLCs in their facilities. Currently the average is 6-9 reported, so the good news is the industry as a whole is becoming more PLC aware.
It is common to only learn about a PLC once the machine is down and the clock is ticking at a thousand dollars an hour, or more. Unfortunately, it is also common that after the fire is out, it's on to the next fire, without fully learning what can be done to avoid these costly downtimes in the future, and in other similar machines in a company or corporation.
Some older electrical panels may only have relays in them, but most machines are controlled by a PLC. A bottleneck machine in your facility may have a PLC. Most plant air compressors have a PLC. How much would it cost if the bottleneck or plant air shut down a line, a section of your facility, or even the entire plant?
Do you have an up to date list of all PLC model types, part availability, program copies and details for your company?
The first step to take is to perform a PLC audit. Open every electrical panel, and write down the PLC brand, model, and other pertinent information. Then go the next two steps. Analyze the audit information and risk, then act on that analysis. To help you out, I want to share with you our company PLC audit form.
Collected Information Recommended Action
Machine or Area Name Ex: warehouse conveyor, pump station 3, Strapper 2, Line 7, Traffic signal west main, etc.
PLC Program Name Ex: 1789GAA1, P3, Strap2, 5872443, WestMainTL, etc.
Network Node Address No two addresses will be the same. Ex: 2, 3, 17, 21
Network Name Common to be same as Program name, but not mandatory.
PLC Brand Ex: Allen Bradley, Siemens, Schneider, Mitsubishi, DirectSoft, Omron
PLC Model Number Ex: PLC-5/25, SLC-504, SIMATIC S5, MELSEC FX1N, DL 405
Is Spare Available Yes on shelf, or only in less critical machines or no
Date Program Last Backed Up Make program backups part of your semiannual PM program
Discriptored Copy of program available Without discriptored copy of program, troubleshooting and downtime are greatly increased.
Does PLC have EEPROM Or other method of storing backup program in a chip on PLC
Last date Program Changed Remember to log when outside consultants or OEM make program changes too.
Last date EEPROM Burned Should be saved to EEPROM (Burned) after every successful program change.
Date battery last changed See manufacturer’s data for recommended change frequency.
Other information you may need Might be facility location when corporate HQ is using this form.
Once you have collected the basic information in your Plant wide and/or corporate audit, you need to analyze the information to develop an action plan based on risk analysis. In the risk analysis, bottlenecks and other factors will help you assess priorities. Starting with the highest priority PLC, you will need to ask more important questions.
  • Do we have the most common spares for the PLC?
  • Is the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) available 24/7? Or even in business any more?
  • Do we have a back up copy of the PLC program?
  • Does our program copy have descriptions so we can work with it reliably and efficiently?
  • Do we have the software needed to view the PLC program? Are our maintenance personnel trained on that PLC brand?
These are some of the questions our managers must ask, to avoid unnecessary risk and to insure reliability.
Do you have at least one trained person per shift to maintain and troubleshoot your plant PLCs?
Is your maintenance staff trained on the PLC? (Silly to squander over a couple thousand in maintenance training when the lack of PLC knowledge could cost you 10 thousand an hour. ... or worse. I can give you a couple good reasons why you should have at least one trained person per shift, to work reliably with PLCs. You do not want to see greater downtime on off shifts because the knowledge base is on day shift only. Also with all the baby boomers (our core knowledge base in the industry) about to retire, it is not smart management to place all your eggs in one basket.
Then the question should be asked, what should we look for in training. Well I have been training individuals for over a decade and could easily write another article on just PLC training alone. I can tell you here, that you should seek training with two primary objectives.
1. The training you decide on, should stress working with PLCs in a Safe and Reliable way. (not just textbook knowledge or self learned knowledge)
2. Secondly, the training should be actually centered around the PLC products you are using or plan to use in your facility.
I feel the two criteria above are the most important. Some other good ideas to get more out of your PLC training investment would be to get hands on training using the actual PLC programs and software the maintenance technician will be working with in the facility. Insure your personnel have the software, equipment and encouragement to continue with self education. PLC Training CBT (Computer Based Training) CDs are a great way for employees to follow up 6 months after the initial training. Some other ideas you could do is to provide them with simulation software and/or a spare PLC off the shelf to practice with.
Does your maintenance personnel work with PLCs following written company or corporate policy and procedures?
It seems that in our industrial culture, if policy and procedures are not written and enforced, we eventually stray back to the old unreliable ways. I have reviewed many policy and procedures as well as books on the topic matter and hardly ever see maintenance management of the PLCs included. It amazes me how an organization can write guidelines for what they believe is the health of the entire organization’s body, and leave out the brain (the PLC :>). Once again, a complete PLC policy and procedure manual is out of the scope of this article. However, I will donate a few random items below to get you started.
  1. Write PLC policies and procedures into your existing maintenance policy and procedures. (SOP)
  2. All personnel working with PLCs will be trained on that PLC equipment.
  3. Backup copies of the PLC programs will be made every 6 months regardless of change status.
  4. If a PLC program has been changed ...
    • It will be documented in the software copy, in the printed copy and in the CMMS program.
    • Copies of the PLC program will be stored on a media more reliable than floppy disk (CD, USB, etc.).
    • Multiple copies will be stored on laptop, maintenance manager’s office and off site (corporate).
    • If available, EEPROM will be updated with new changed program.
    • If outside vendor changes, a-d will be performed by maintenance personnel
  5. Future equipment purchases ...
    • A common PLC brand in all equipment will be sought out (Standardization of PLC types)
    • OEM will be required to provide a descriptor copy of PLC programs in the customer’s native language.
    • All PLC 110v control voltage will have a line filter on it.
    • All PLCs will have the backup EEPROM option for zero downtime in some failure modes.
  6. Forcing inputs and outputs on or off shall be treated as a Safety issue. (See safety SOP)
  7. Inputs and outputs shall not be forced on or off with out a clear understanding of complete effect on PLC program and a second opinion.
    • If forces are installed, they shall be removed with in 24 hours and a more permanent solution found.
    • All forces should be documented in software and a written log before being enabled.
  8. Online programming is somewhat of a safety risk, normal procedure is to change offline and download to the PLC.
Hope this helps, if you have a specific question you can find me in the PLC discussion area at the PLC Discussion Forum.

Germany's coal mining industry is all but finished as viable coal seams are worked out. Following an earthquake, mines in the Saarland will close in 2012 and mining in North Rhine-Westphalia's will end in 10 years at most.

But German mining equipment is still in demand; more than a hundred mostly medium-sized businesses have found customers in countries where mining is booming. One such company is Eickhoff, in Bochum, which produces milling and cutting equipment for coal mining. Now Eickhoff exports 95% of its mining equipment, mainly to China and Russia. Robert Donauer went to a mine in the Ruhr Valley and paid a visit to Eickhoff.

Made in Germany | Siemens - Hightech Trains for Russia

Written by Kang Abu on 2:30 PM

Siemens AGImage via Wikipedia

Russian state railway company RZD is soon to receive the first of eight high-speed trains ordered from Siemens that will cut one hour off the trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

The deal that is worth over 600 million euros has involved various new challenges for the German electronics and engineering giant; the railway gauge in Russia is 33cm wider than in Germany, and the trains will also have to withstand harsh local weather conditions, with temperatures sometimes dropping to minus 50°C. Testing has so far been limited to simulations. But the first "Velaro RUS" train is now ready for shipment to Russia via the Baltic Sea. Our reporters Alexa Meyer and Alexandra von Nahmen are on board for its maiden voyage.

Deutsche Bahn's planned stock market flotation due to take place in late October was postponed because of the global financial crisis, but it has not been scrapped. News of lucrative executive payouts linked to the flotation have attracted considerable criticism. At the moment, DB managers are traveling the world on the hunt for investors and new business ventures.

Germany's rail company is aiming to expand internationally with the help of its subsidiary DB-International. It has a staff of 800 and is involved in big infrastructure projects: from the building of a rail line through Saudi Arabia to the training of high-speed-train drivers in Taiwan. Only Germany and France have drivers who are experienced enough to drive these trains. Now they're helping to train their Taiwanese counterparts. Michael Altenhenne has visited the Deutsche Bahn's subsidiary in Taiwan.

Scada systems are used for communication between software systems and the mashines they control. The old monolithic Scada systems are being replaced by open, distributed environments, which provide a central overview of the whole system. Open protocols and network technology are applied to reduce costs while increasing quality and reliability of the system.OpenSCADA® has taken this trend one step further: by providing an open SCADA platform, system limitation are overcome. This means OpenSCADA® is independent of technologies. Furthermore, integration is simple, it is highly configurable, meaning that creating a runtime environment is easy. The running system is readily extendible, and test and simulation environments are easily set up.

The Open Idea – Why OpenSCADA®?

The Open idea has several meanings in the OpenSCADA® Project:

Open architecture

Simple interfaces and a highly configurable environment enable quick development of a base system. Developed modules can be run and tested on the simulation system, which is also provided.

Open platform

OpenSCADA® is not limited to a certain Operating System (OS). The OS can be a system like Windows, Linux, MacOS, or Unix. You can chose the runtime Operating System independently.

Open development environment

OpenSCADA® is not limited to a development environment. Different projects are implemented in different environments, e. g. Java, C/C++, C#. By using the independent communication protocol, any programming language can be used to write OpenSCADA® components.

Open Source Code

Both the base modules and the extention modules are provided under the LGPL and GPL. The source code is open to everybody.

Repost What is Automation?

Written by Kang Abu on 11:07 AM

Automation (ancient Greek: = self dictated), roboticization[1] or industrial automation or numerical control is the use of control systems such as computers to control industrial machinery and processes, reducing the need for human intervention.[2] In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provided human operators with machinery to assist them with the physical requirements of work, automation greatly reduces the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Processes and systems can also be automated.

Automation plays an increasingly important role in the global economy and in daily experience. Engineers strive to combine automated devices with mathematical and organizational tools to create complex systems for a rapidly expanding range of applications and human activities.

Many roles for humans in industrial processes presently lie beyond the scope of automation. Human-level pattern recognition, language recognition, and language production ability are well beyond the capabilities of modern mechanical and computer systems. Tasks requiring subjective assessment or synthesis of complex sensory data, such as scents and sounds, as well as high-level tasks such as strategic planning, currently require human expertise. In many cases, the use of humans is more cost-effective than mechanical approaches even where automation of industrial tasks is possible.

Specialised hardened computers, referred to as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), are frequently used to synchronize the flow of inputs from (physical) sensors and events with the flow of outputs to actuators and events. This leads to precisely controlled actions that permit a tight control of almost any industrial process.

Human-machine interfaces (HMI) or computer human interfaces (CHI), formerly known as man-machine interfaces, are usually employed to communicate with PLCs and other computers, such as entering and monitoring temperatures or pressures for further automated control or emergency response. Service personnel who monitor and control these interfaces are often referred to as stationary engineers.


Automation tools
Different types of automation tools exists:

* ANN - Artificial neural network
* DCS - Distributed Control System
* HMI - Human Machine Interface
* SCADA - Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
* PLC - Programmable Logic Controller

Double Driver 3.0

Written by Kang Abu on 8:48 PM

Double Driver is a very simple and useful tool which not only allows you to view all the drivers installed on your system but also allows you to backup, restore, save and print all chosen drivers.

Double Driver Screenshot

One of the main reasons why you would want to collect installed drivers is if you don’t have the Driver CD that came with the computer or they are unavailable online. This comes in quite handy if you purchase a computer and want to backup the initial set of drivers. It can be quite difficulty for example to find drivers for hardware installed in a notebook if the operating system has to be setup again. Luckily Double Driver can now lend you a hand with that and save you a lot of time.

Double Driver is a very simple and useful tool which not only allows you to view all the drivers installed on your system but also allows you to backup, restore, save and print all chosen drivers simply and reliably.

Double Driver analyzes your system and lists the most important driver details such as version, date, provider, etc and offers you the chance to update to the latest version. All drivers that are found can easily be backed up the application and easily restored at a later point in one go.


Software ini sangat cocok untuk membackup driver komputer-komputer yang lama, apalagi kalau CD drivernya sudah pada hilang/rusak. Silahkan dicoba saja.

Repost: Make Images of Your Hard Drive (Cloning your harddisk)

Written by Kang Abu on 10:41 AM

SCADA with Database always use Industrial PC for HMI. How to make backup the PC SCADA? Please read simple Tips and Tricks to make Backup PC. "It's important for your as Automation Engineer in Industries"


Making images of hard drives is a useful way of having backup copies of all your information, including your entire operative system.

For many years, only a few companies made this kind of programs and they were expensive. But now, there are some free alternatives that make this possible without spending any money. Besides, they are pushing commercial products to lower its prices because of the new competition.

The industry is lead by two applications, Acronis True Image and Norton Ghost. These two are great and include an impressive array of options that many of the free applications don’t have. But most users won’t use them anyway.

DriveImage XML

The first application i want to talk you about is DriveImage XML, from Runtime Software.

Official description:

DriveImage XML is an easy to use and reliable program for imaging and backing up partitions and logical drives.

The program allows you to:

  • Backup logical drives and partitions to image files
  • Browse these images, view and extract files
  • Restore these images to the same or a different drive
  • Copy directly from drive to drive
  • Schedule automatic backups with Windows Task Scheduler

Macrium Reflect Free

The second one is Macrium Reflect Free.

Official description:

  • Create a disk image whilst running Windows using Microsoft Volume Shadow copy Service (VSS).
  • Image to Network, USB, FireWire drives and DVD.
  • Built in scheduler.
  • 32 bit and native 64 bit versions.
  • Industry leading compression levels and speed.
  • Linux based Rescue CD with Network access and full GUI. Only 6.5MB in size!
  • Built in CD/DVD packet writing engine. Supports packet writing to DVD DL media with Windows Vista.
  • HTML log files.

No Excuses

There are free tools to make those important backup disk images. It is up to you which one to choose.

SIMATIC NET PROFIBUS CP 5711 Released

Written by Kang Abu on 8:48 AM

1. Product description





The CP 5711 is an innovation of the existing SIMATIC NET CP 5512 for PGs/PCs with USB V2.0 ports. With its USB V2.0 connection, the CP 5711 can be used on many different computer platforms.
Innovation of the PG/PC connector technology for USB V2.0:The CP 5711 is connected via a USB V2.0 port, allowing flexible use of the module. USB V2.0 is available on many computer platforms and applications for the CP 5711 are therefore manifold. The CP 5711 can also be used on a USB V1.1 port, but the performance will be lower in this case.
Functionally compatible with the CP 5512, as well as PC Adapter USBApplications created for the CP 5512 can be used for the CP 5711 without any changes to the configuration or the user software.The CP 5711 is functionally compatible with the PC Adapter USB for engineering applications (e.g. STEP7)
+ 5 V Power supply from USB V2.0The communication processor is supplied with power from the USB port of the PC system.
+24 V optional external power supplyThe external 24 V power supply covers two application areas: - The power supply from the USB V2.0 port is not sufficient (power supply of the PC is too weak; USB ports are not designed for 500 mA USB standard) - PROFIBUS Termination is assured even when the USB cable is disconnected (active supply of the PROFIBUS connection termination)SIMATIC S7 or SITOP power supplies can be used to provide the external voltage supply.
Mechanical USB latchingAdditional mechanical latching of the included USB connecting cable on the housing of the CP 5711. This safeguards the USB connection in the case of mobile use and also for applications in switchboards.
Diagnostic information via LEDsFive LEDs are available on the CP 5711 communication processor to provide extensive diagnostics (power USB, power external, identify, Link/SF and Activity. - Power USB = module is supplied with 5 V from the USB port - Power Ext = module is supplied with 24 V from an external source - Identify = USB identification phase - startup phase of the module - Link/System Fault = two-colored LED (green/red) providing the user with status information: - the LED lights up green when subscribers are identified on the connected PROFIBUS network (Link Status). - the LED lights up red if an error occurs on the CP 5711.- Activity = the module has synchronized itself on the PROFIBUS network and the PROFIBUS token is available on the PROFIBUS network.
Mounting on a mounting rail (with optional accessories)A separate mounting bracket is available for use of the CP 5711 in switchboards and mounting on 35 mm standard rails.

The existing CP 5512 module with Cardbus technology will continue to be sold in parallel with the CP 5711. Our customers thus have flexibility and can decide freely whether they wish to use a vacant Cardbus slot, or a USB port to operate the relevant SIMATIC NET communication processor. An additional area of application are PC-based systems with no separate card slot and only USB ports.

Watch a sample of the proven techniques that distinguish Ron Beaufort's PLC Training ( http://www.ronbeaufort.com ) from most courses.
Find the rest of the series here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhLIOM...
Learn to be an effective troubleshooter and not just filled with trivial knowledge about PLCs. By teaching you to think the same way the PLC does, you get a much more thorough understanding of why the PLC does what it does in even the abnormal situations.

There are 11 videos in this series covering the topics in a lot of detail. These subjects are typically covered in the first few hours of the 40 hour long PLC Boot Camp class. The Boot Camp class is very agressive and covers in one week what takes multiple classes to cover from other training facilities. The class room teaching is done with challenging hands-on exercises that ensure you retain what you learn.

These videos focus on the PLC-5, SLC-500, and Micrologix series. There are also PLC Boot Camp classes for the ControlLogix platform.
