Guys,

As part of an expansion of my control system, I would like to include a Mobile Panel 177 100m far away from the control room, for local operation. I was searching into Siemens S7-200 and Profibus Manuals for some information, and read about PPI X MPI X Profibus protocols, but I was not able to define the best architecture for this simple system. The installed system (All installed in the control room):
- 1 S7-224
- 1 TP177 micro
- 1 PC for configuration
- 1 PPI/MPI/USB cable

New System:
========== Control Room
- 1 S7-224
- 1 TP177 micro
- 1 PC for configuration
- 1 PPI/MPI/USB cable
========== Field
1 Mobile Panel 177 100m far away from the control room

Is it possible to interconnect all these equipments throught a Profibus Network? It is not clear to me if its possible to connect TP-177 Micro via Profibus.
- S7-200 with EM277 (Profibus OK)
- Mobile Panel 177 (Profibus OK)
- TP-177 Micro (Profibus ???)

Thanks!

Hi,

i read in the manual from the TP177mirco, that you can use a EM277.
site 59 "Several HMI devices on one S7-200"

-> http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/21086325/0

so it should be possible

regards,

Hello

I'm in the process of setting up a S7200 plc and a TP177 hmi panel. I am having some problems with communication. This stuff is pretty new to me so i would need a step by step guide to this problem. I am using Wincc to program my TP177 screen and firstly need to know what settings i need to have on the communication page. I am using a profibus cable between my plc and touchscreen and need to know what position the switches need to be in. In my microwin software for the S7200 i am using a ppi cable to download a basic program and this seems to have been sucessful so far.

Thanks
John
