3 Basics
Introduction
Faceplates are objects that are made up of existing picture objects.
Faceplates offer the following advantages:
Changes from a central location
Reuse in other projects
Reducing the workload for the configuration
You create and change faceplates in the "Faceplates" editor. The generated blocks
are adopted in the "Project Library" and can be added into pictures like other
objects.
Using a faceplate
After you have generated a faceplate, the faceplate appears as an object in the
project library.
You add the faceplate to your process pictures and configure it for the respective
usage location in the properties window.
Faceplate instance
Inserting a faceplate into a process screen generates an instance of this faceplate.
When editing the faceplate in the project library, the created faceplate instance is
automatically updated once released.
Reusing faceplates in several projects
WinCC Advanced offers the option of adopting faceplates in a global library. This
enables you to reuse the faceplates in other projects.
As soon as you add a faceplate from a global library into a picture, the faceplate is
also filed in the project library. You change the faceplate only in the project library;
the changes are not automatically adopted in the global library.

4 Functional Mechanism of this Faceplate
4.1 Interfaces of the faceplate window
Figure 4-1


The interface of a faceplate generally differentiates between dynamic and static
properties:
Via the interface a dynamic property is always connected with a tag which
supplies the property in runtime with values.
Static properties can be directly configured in the picture editor. The properties
are then saved together with the faceplate or on the interface of the faceplate.
Static properties cannot be changed in Runtime.

4.2 Dynamic properties of the faceplate window
4.2.1 Animation
The tags of this group are used to display and represent the faceplate windows;
process connection is optional.
Visibility
The Visibility property is used for influencing the display properties of the
faceplate window during runtime.
The following properties are influenced:
Open
Close
Minimize
Maximize
Selecting the individual tabs
Table 4-1
Tag used
Symbolic name Analogue_DB.OP_VISIBILITY
Data type Byte

Acquisition cycle 100 ms
Acquisition mode Cyclic during operation

Bits 0..6 serve for opening or selecting the individual tabs of the faceplate window
(maximized display). If more than one bit is set, only the background of the
faceplate window is displayed. If bit 7 has been set, only the title bar of the
faceplate window is displayed (minimized display), irrespective of the status of the
remaining bits. If none of the bits are set, the faceplate window is closed.
The following table shows the setup of the tags.

Note
The tag can also be defined as an internal tag without PLC connection if only a
limited number of control tags are available.
If the tag has a PLC connection, read and write access is possible from the
controller. Aside from the known screen selection, the respective faceplate
window can also be opened from the controller and a specific tab can be
selected.

4.2.2 Process
The tags of this group feature a process connection and are the basic interface
between controller and operating device.
Command
The Command property is used to transmit commands from WinCC Advanced to
the controller. The PLC block analyses the control command, executes the desired
action and then initiates a reset of the pending control command. For this purpose,
the value of the control parameter is set to 0.

two usage locations:
The tag serves as filter criterion for the message display of the faceplate
window. This ensures that only messages referring to this faceplate window
are displayed.
The tag is displayed in the right half of the title bar to distinguish between the
individual faceplate instances.

Hysteresis_Abs
The Hysteresis_Abs property indicates the hysteresis in the (absolute) unit of the
analog value.
The hysteresis influences the deactivation of a warning or an alarm that was
triggered due to a limit violation.
Depending on the mode of the hysteresis, it can be specified either as an absolute
value or as a percentage value. Both values are converted and displayed
simultaneously.

4.3 Static properties of the faceplate window
Static properties cannot be changed during runtime. Therefore they generally have
no process interface.
4.3.1 Process_Trends_Value
The properties of this group define the individual trends of the faceplate window.
Trends
The Trends property is a SimpleCoreCollectionWrapper and defines the trends
of the Trends tab. To edit the trends, select the Trends property, the trends
editor is opened using the displayed button.

Figure 4-4

4.3.2 Label
The properties of this group are used to label the faceplate window.
Text
The Text property is a text string and is displayed in the left half of the title bar.
Here, for example, the higher level definition (HLD) or the location of usage can be
shown. You can change this text at the interface of the faceplate under the Label
property.

Visibility
The Visibility property is used for influencing the display properties of the
faceplate window during runtime.
The following properties are influenced:
Open
Close
Minimize
Maximize
Selecting the individual tabs

Note
When clicking the faceplate icon, the OP_VISIBILITY tag is always loaded with
value 1. This results in the respective faceplate window being displayed with
tab 1.

Bits 0..6 serve for opening or selecting the individual tabs of the faceplate window
(maximized display). If more than one bit is set, only the background of the
faceplate window is displayed. If bit 7 has been set, only the title bar of the
faceplate window is displayed (minimized display), irrespective of the status of the
remaining bits. If none of the bits are set, the faceplate window is closed.

Note
The tag can also be defined as an internal tag without PLC connection if only a
limited number of control tags are available.
If the tag has a PLC connection, read and write access is possible from the
controller. Aside from the known screen selection, the respective faceplate
window can also be opened from the controller and a specific tab can be
selected.

4.6 Control and status signals
4.6.1 Processing of switching commands in the controller
The WinCC Advanced control tag OP_dwCmd of a block is used to transmit
commands from WinCC Advanced to the PLC. The PLC block analyses the control
command, executes the desired action and then initiates a reset of the pending
control command. For this purpose, the value of the control parameter is set to 0.
Further notes for the use in WinCC Advanced can be found under the Command
property.

IN_INT
The input is processed for the analog value display of an analog input module
in the 4-20 mA measuring range. The nominal range is defined from 0 to
+27648 (unipolar) or from -27648 to +27648 (bipolar).
For information on the analog value display of analog modules, please refer to
the following document:
http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/8859629

IN
The value of the IN input is processed directly and passed on to QOUT
within the specified limits.
4.6.4 Defining the range of values
The range of values is defined by the HI_LIM and LO_LIM inputs. When
monitoring the process value of an analog input module, the nominal range is
scaled to this range depending on the BIPOLAR parameter.

LIM_HYS and LIM_HYS_Set
The LIM_HYS value supplies the limit for deactivating a limit monitoring
message with a hysteresis. Depending on the LIM_HYS_Set parameter, the
value can be specified as an absolute value or as a percentage value.
LIM_HYS_Set = 0 LIM_HYS interpreted as a percentage value
LIM_HYS_Set = 1 LIM_HYS interpreted as an absolute value
LIM_HYS interpreted as a percentage value depends on the range of values
defined by the HI_LIM and LO_LIM parameters and is converted
accordingly.
The value of the hysteresis is mirrored to the QLIM_HYS output and
influences the deactivation of the triggered limit monitoring messages:
Messages relating to an exceeded limit: these messages are deactivated
only after the limit minus the hysteresis has been reached.
Messages indicating that the value has fallen below a limit: these
messages are deactivated only after the limit plus the hysteresis has been
reached.

4.6.6 Enabling/disabling simulation
The Simulation ON mode can simulate the analog signal. This function is
important, for example, if automatic functions are already to be tested during the
configuration phase, but a process interface does not yet exist. Without simulating
the feedbacks, many automatic functions (e.g., step sequences) cannot be
successfully executed since the feedbacks are frequently requested in step
enabling conditions or cause errors.

4.6.7 Error reset
The following situations cause the block to go to the Error state and the QOUT
output to take on the value of the LO_LIM lower limit:
Interlock (LOCK = 1)
External Error (ERR_EXT = 1)
Wire Break (QERR_WIRE = 1)

The following situation causes the block to go to the Error state and the QOUT
output to take on the value of the HI_LIM upper limit:
Overrun (QERR_OVERRUN = 1)

If there is an error at the block (QERR = 1), it can be reset using the L_RESET
input or by the OPdwCmd operator. This error status can only be reset if there are
no other error is pending.

5 Configuration and Settings
Here you will find out
how the faceplate of this application is structured. This chapter is necessary if you
wish to design the faceplate according to your needs.
Principle of layer technique
The principle of layer technology was used for the faceplate of this application. The
layer technology enables differentiated editing of the faceplate objects.
The faceplate editor and the picture editor have 32 layers; however, the layers of
the faceplate are only available within the faceplate editor. After adding a faceplate
from the library into the picture editor (creating a faceplate instance) it can only be
assigned a layer within the picture editor, just as any other picture object.
However, the offset in depth within the faceplate remains.
Offset in depth structure
Objects of layer 0 are in the background of the pictures, objects of layer 31 are
in the front. The objects of a single layer are also arranged hierarchically. When
creating a picture or a faceplate the first added object is placed at the back within
the layer. Each further object is added one position further to the front. Within a
layer you can also move the objects to the front and to the back.
Editing faceplates
Changes at the faceplates can be performed at a central location.
There are two options to change a faceplate and its instances:
Changing the faceplate via an instance (location of usage)
Select the faceplate in the workspace of the picture editor and select the Edit
faceplate command via the context menu.
Changing the faceplate in the library
Open the project library and select the faceplate. Select the Edit faceplate
type command via the context menu of the faceplate.
After subsequent release of the faceplate, the changes made are updated in
the instances and also in the project library.

Working with layers
One of the 32 layers is always active. When inserting objects into a picture or a
faceplate they are assigned to the active layer by default. The enabled layer is
selected with a pen icon in the "Layout > layer task card.

Figure 5-1

When opening a picture or a faceplate all 32 layers are always displayed. In the
"Layout > Layers task card you can hide all layers apart from the enabled layer.
You then specifically edit the objects of the active layer.

5.1 Configuring the faceplate window
The faceplate window is divided into several layers. Since neither the layers of a
faceplate nor the layers of a picture can be accessed during runtime, the
application uses the Visibility animation type of each object. For this purpose, the
Visibility property is connected in the faceplates.
5.2 Layer 0 frames
Layer 0 contains all important objects required for displaying the faceplate
window. These objects represent the faceplate window frame.

WinCC Advanced faceplate into an empty or existing project.
This example uses the STEP 7 block that is not interconnected, the AnalogueIcon
faceplate icon and the Analogue faceplate window.

Note
The application provides an executable project. You only need to perform the
steps explained in this chapter if you wish to integrate the blocks into your own
project.
If you only want to visualize the functionality of this application it suffices to unzip
the Faceplates_WinCC_Advanced_Blocks_Code.zip file and to open it in the
TIA Portal.
Transfer the blocks to a S7 controller of your choice and start the HMI station
(WinCC Advanced RT) integrated in the project on a connected PC.


NOTICE The process connection was configured for Industrial Ethernet. Adjust the
settings for CPU, HMI station and PG/PC interface on demand.

6.1 Configuring the STEP 7 block
Table 6-1
Step Description
1. Creating a new project
Create a new project with an S7 controller and an HMI station (WinCC
Advanced), or open an existing project.
If you are using an existing project, it is advisable to create a backup
before performing the following steps.
2. Inserting blocks
Open the project of this application with the TIA Portal.
Copy the FB640 block to the respective directory of the S7 program.
If you are using a new project, also insert the calling block OB1 and the
DB620 instance data block into your project.
3. Calling the blocks
When using an existing project you must integrate the FB640 block into
the cycle of the PLC. The necessary instance data block is then
automatically generated.

Service

Figure 7-6


NOTICE The Service tab is protected and requires the authorization of the
Service group for the selection.
The default user is admin and the default password 100.
If you create a new instance of the faceplate window and do not
interconnect the Service property, the Service tab has no access
protection.


In this view you can perform the following actions:
Toggle S7 Periphery / Real Value.
An analog value is scaled depending on the limits in the Overview tab.
The scaling of an analog value can be both unipolar and bipolar.
Hysteresis changeover: Percental/Absolute
switchover between simulation / real process mode.

Note
The hysteresis only influences the deactivation of the limit messages.
It does not influence the scaling of the analog value or the triggering of a limit
warning.
