The HMI device in the operating process
The HMI device is part of the operating process. The following two phases are key to the
way the HMI device is integrated in the operating process:
● Project design
● Process management
Project design
Visualization of the operating process is known as project design. Project design comprises:
● writing project data
● saving project data
● testing project data
● simulating project data
Project design is undertaken independently of the HMI device and results in a project. Once
this has been generated, the project can be transferred to the HMI device to control the
operating process.
&RQILJXULQJ3&
+0,GHYLFH
Process management
Process management is marked by two-way communication between HMI device and
controller. This lays the foundations for operator control and monitoring.
&RQWURO
&RQWURO
+0,GHYLFH
The operator can intervene in the operating process on the HMI device for control purposes.
The controller in turn supplies the results of the operating process which are displayed on
the HMI device.

4.3.3
Connecting the equipotential bonding circuit
Differences in electrical potential
Differences in electrical potential can develop between spatially separated plant
components. Such electrical potential differences can lead to high equalizing currents over
the data cables and therefore to the destruction of their interfaces. Equalizing currents
can develop if the cable shielding is terminated at both ends and grounded to different
plant parts.
Differences in potential may develop when a system is connected to different
mains supplies.
General requirements for equipotential bonding
Differences in potential must be reduced by means of equipotential bonding in order to
ensure trouble-free operation of the relevant components of the electronic system. The
following must therefore be observed when installing the equipotential bonding circuit:
● The effectiveness of equipotential bonding increases as the impedance of the
equipotential bonding conductor decreases or as its cross-section increases.
● If two plant parts are interconnected by means of shielded data cables and their shielding
is bonded at both ends to the grounding/protective conductor, the impedance of the
additionally installed equipotential bonding cable must not exceed 10% of the
shielding impedance.
● The cross-section of an equipotential bonding conductor must be capable of handling the
maximum equalizing current. Experience has shown that equipotential bonding
conductors with a minimum cross-section of 16 mm² should be fitted between the control
cabinets or the ground point of the supporting arm or the stand for PRO HMI devices.
● Use equipotential bonding conductors made of copper or galvanized steel. Establish a
large surface contact between the equipotential bonding conductors and the
grounding/protective conductor and protect these from corrosion.
● Use a suitable cable clip to clamp the shield of the data cable flush to the equipotential
bonding rail. Keep the length of cable between the HMI device and the equipotential
bonding rail as short as possible.
● Route the equipotential bonding conductor and data cables in parallel and with minimum
clearance between these.

5.5 Labeling the function keys on the MP 377 12" Key
Procedure
Proceed as follows:
1. Edit and then print the template.
You can also print blank templates and label them manually.
2. Apply a fixing spray film to the labeling strips.
The fixing spray ensures that the text is water resistant and does not smear, and that the
printer ink on the keyboard membrane does not run.
3. Cut out the labeling strip.
Ensure that the corners are cut according to the diagram shown above as this makes it
easier to slide them into the slot.
4. Remove any existing labeling strips.
Note
Wait for the printed labeling strips to dry before you insert them.
5. Slide the labeling strips ② into the slot ①.
6. Slide the labeling strips into the slot up to the stop.
The labeling strip will protrude approximately 3 cm from the slot. The template
dimensions for the labeling strips are designed so that the labeling is correctly placed for
the function keys. It is not necessary to secure the labeling strip.
When mounting the HMI device, ensure that the labeling strips do not become jammed
between the mounting cut-out and the HMI device.

Overview of network operation
Introduction
You can connect the HMI device to a PROFINET network via the Ethernet port.
NOTICE
The HMI device only has client functionality in the PC network. This means that users can
access files of a node with TCP/IP server functionality from the HMI device via the network.
However, you cannot, for example, access files of the HMI device from a PC via
the network.
Note
Information on communication using SIMATIC S7 via PROFINET is provided in the
"WinCC flexible communication" user manual.
The connection to a network offers, for example, the following options:
● Printing via a network printer
● Saving, exporting and importing of recipe data records on or from a server
● Setting up of message and data archives
● Transferring a project
● Saving data
Addressing
Within a PROFINET network, computers are usually addressed using computer names.
These device names are translated from a DNS or WINS server to TCP/IP addresses.
This is why a DNS or WINS server is needed for addressing via computer names when
the HMI device is in a PROFINET network.
The corresponding servers are generally available in PROFINET networks.
Note
The use of TCP/IP addresses to address PCs is not supported by the operating system.
Consult your network administrator if you have questions in this regard.

Printing via a network printer
The HMI device's operating system does not support line by line alarm logging via a network
printer. All other printing functions, for example, hardcopy or logs, are available without
restriction via the network.
Preparation
Before beginning the configuration, request the following network parameters from your
network administrator.
● Does the network use DHCP for dynamic assignment of network addresses?
If not, get a new TCP/IP network address for the HMI device.
● Which TCP/IP address does the default gateway have?
● If a DNS network is used, what are the addresses of the name server?
● If a WINS network is used, what are the addresses of the name server?
General procedure for configuring the network
The HMI device must be configured prior to network operation. The configuration is basically
divided into the following steps:
Proceed as follows:
1. Enter the device name of the HMI device.
2. Configure the network address.
3. Set the logon information.
4. Save the settings.

Overview
Configuration phase
A project – the process image of the working process – is produced during configuration
to visualize automated working processes. The process displays for the project contain
displays for values and messages which provide information about process statuses.
The process control phase follows the configuration phase.
Process control phase
The project must be transferred to the HMI device if it is to be used in process control.
Another precondition for process control is that the HMI device is connected online to a
controller. Current working processes - operating and observing - can then be subject to
process control.
Transferring the project to the HMI device
You can transfer a project to an HMI device as follows:
● Transfer from the configuring PC
● Restore from a PC using ProSave
In this case, an archived project is transferred from a PC to the HMI device.
The configuration software need not be installed on this PC.
Commissioning and recommissioning
Initial and re-start-ups differ in the following respects:
● When the HMI device is commissioned there is no project at first.
The HMI device is also in this state after the operating system has been updated.
● When recommissioning, any project already on the HMI device is replaced.

Operating modes
Operating modes
The HMI device may be in the following operating modes:
● Offline
● Online
● Transfer
"Offline mode" and "Online mode" can be set on both the configuring PC and the HMI
device. To set these modes on the HMI device, use a corresponding operating element
of the project.
Changing the operating mode
The configuration engineer must have configured an appropriate operating element to allow
a change of the operating mode on the HMI device during ongoing operation.
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation
"Offline" operating mode
In this mode, there is no communication between the HMI device and PLC. Although the
HMI device can be operated, it cannot exchange data with the PLC.
"Online" operating mode
In this mode, the HMI device and PLC communicate. You can operate the plant on the HMI
device according to your system configuration.
"Transfer" mode
In this mode, you can transfer a project from the configuring PC to the HMI device or backup
and restore HMI device data, for example.
The following options are available for setting "Transfer" mode on the HMI device:
● When the HMI device starts up
Start "Transfer" mode manually in the HMI device Loader.
● During ongoing operation
Start the "Transfer" mode manually within the project using an operating element. The
HMI device toggles to "Transfer" mode when automatic mode is set and a transfer is
initiated on the configuring PC.

Transfer
7.5.1
Overview
Transfer
Transfer the executable project from the configuring PC to the HMI device.
You can start the "Transfer" mode manually or automatically on the HMI device.
Transferred data is written directly to the internal flash memory on the HMI device. For the
transfer, you use a data channel which you have to configure before starting a transfer.
Backtransfer
You have the option to transfer the compressed project file together with the runtime project
to the HMI device. If necessary, the compressed project file can be transferred back to the
configuring PC and edited.
The HMI device must be equipped with an external memory card to which the compressed
project file can be saved.
NOTICE
Compressed project file
WinCC flexible does not check whether the compressed project file stored on the HMI
device corresponds to the existing runtime project.

A compatibility conflict may occur when transferring a project to the HMI device. This is
caused by different versions of the configuration software used and the HMI device image
available on the HMI device. If there are different versions, the transfer is aborted. A
message indicating a compatibility conflict is displayed on the configuration PC.
There are two ways to match the versions:
● Update the HMI device image if the project was created with the most recent version of
the configuration software.
● Transfer a matching version of the HMI device image if you do not want to adapt the
project for the HMI device to the most recent version of the configuration software
for the project.

Overview
Configuration and process control phase
HMI devices can be used to operate and monitor tasks in process and production
automation. The plant screens on the HMI devices are used to provide a clear overview
of the active processes.
The HMI device project, which includes the plant screens, is created during the configuration
phase. The configuration engineer defines which tasks the HMI device has in the process
and defines the following in detail:
● Which process data is displayed on the individual HMI device
● Which plant components are controlled by this HMI device
The configuration engineer stores this information in the project's screens. The project is
transferred to the HMI device during commissioning.
After transfer to the HMI device, current processes can be operated and monitored in the
project's screens. The screens enable you to observe, for example, operational states,
current process data and faults in a plant. Operating elements which are used to operate the
process, for example buttons, I/O fields and alarm windows, are displayed in the screens.
Operator input options
The hardware of the HMI device determines which of the following operator control options
are available:
● Touch screen
The operating elements shown in the dialogs are touch-sensitive. Touch objects are
basically operated in the same way as mechanical keys. You activate operating elements
by touching them with your finger. To double-click them, touch an operating element
twice in succession.
● HMI device keyboard
The operating elements shown in the screens are selected and operated using the keys
of the HMI device.
● External keyboard, connected via USB
● External mouse, connected via USB
CAUTION
Do not use any pointed or sharp objects when operating the touch screen. Otherwise
this may damage the plastic membrane of the touch screen.
The following provides instructions for operating a project with the touch screen
and the keyboard.

8.1 Overview
Operating a project with an external keyboard
An external keyboard can be used to operate a project in exactly the same way as with the
HMI keyboard or screen keyboard.
Note
The function keys of the external keyboard are disabled.
Use the other keys of the external keyboard, which correspond to the HMI device keys
in the description.
Operating a project with an external mouse
An external mouse can be used to operate a project in exactly the same way as with the
HMI touch screen. Click the described operating elements with the mouse.
Unintentional actions
CAUTION
Do not carry out several operations simultaneously. You may otherwise trigger
unintentional actions.
• With touch control:
Always touch only one operating element on the screen
• With key control:
Do not press more than two keys simultaneously
Observing the plant documentation
Some operations with the project may require in-depth knowledge about the specific plant on
the part of the operator. Proceed with caution, for example, when you use jog mode. Further
information on this may be available in your plant documentation.
Operation feedback from operating elements
The HMI device provides operation feedback as soon as it detects that an operating element
has been selected. This operation feedback is independent of any communication with the
PLC. Therefore, this operation feedback does not indicate whether the relevant action is
actually executed or not.

8.1 Overview
Optical feedback from operating elements
The operating element receives the focus and is selected. The configuration engineer can
also configure the selection of an operating element so that it deviates from the standard.
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation.
The type of optical feedback depends on the operating element:
● Buttons
The HMI device outputs different views of the "Pressed" and "Unpressed" states,
provided the configuration engineer has configured a 3D effect:
– "Pressed" state:
– "Unpressed" state:
The configuration engineer determines the appearance of a selected field, for example,
line width and color for the focus.
● Invisible buttons
By default, invisible buttons are not displayed as pressed when they are touched.
No optical operation feedback is provided in this case.
The configuration engineer may, however, configure invisible buttons so that their outline
appears as lines when touched. This outline remains visible until you select another
operating element.
● I/O fields
When you select an I/O field, the content of the I/O field is displayed against a colored
background. With touch operation, a screen keyboard is displayed for the entering
of values.
Acoustic feedback from operating elements
As soon as the HMI device detects a touch of the touch screen or that a key has been
pressed, an acoustic signal is issued. You can activate or deactivate this acoustic
operation feedback.
Note
The acoustic feedback is only possible if you interact with the project directly on the touch
screen or press one of the keys of the HMI device. If you use an external mouse or keyboard
for interaction, no acoustic signal is issued.
Acoustic signal for inadvertent operations
If you try to enter an invalid character, the HMI device issues an acoustic signal in
accordance with the setting.

Direct keys
Introduction
Direct keys on the HMI device are used to set bits in the I/O area of a SIMATIC S7.
Direct keys enable operations with short reaction times that are, for example,
a jog mode requirement.
NOTICE
Direct keys are still active when the HMI device is in "offline" mode.
NOTICE
If you operate a function key with direct key functionality in a running project, the direct key
function is always executed, independent of the current screen contents.
Note
You can only use direct keys when there is a connection via PROFIBUS DP or
PROFINET IO.
Direct keys result in additional basic load on the HMI device.
Direct keys
The following objects can be configured as a direct key:
● Buttons
● Function keys
You can also define image numbers in the case of HMI devices with touch operation. In this
way, the project engineer can configure the direct keys on an image-specific basis.
Further information on configuring direct keys can be found in the
"WinCC flexible Communication" system manual.

Function keys
Function keys
Function key assignment is defined during configuration. The configuration engineer can
assign function keys globally and locally.
Function keys with global function assignment
A globally assigned function key always triggers the same action on the HMI device or in
the PLC irrespective of the screen displayed. Such an action could be, for example,
the activation of a screen or the closure of an alarm window.
Function keys with local function assignment
A function key with local function assignment is screen-specific and is therefore only
effective within the active screen.
The function assigned locally to a function key can vary from screen to screen.
The function key of a screen can be assigned one function only, either a global or local one.
The local assignment function takes priority over the global setting.
The configuration engineer can assign function keys in such a way that you can operate
operating elements with function keys, for example, the alarm view, trend view, recipe view
or Status Force.

Bar
The bar is a dynamic display object. The bar displays a value from the PLC as a
rectangular area. The bar allows you to recognize the following at a glance:
● The distance of the current value from the configured limit values
● Whether a set point value has been reached
The bar can display values such as fill levels or batch counts.
Layout
The layout of the bar depends on the configuration:
● The bar may feature a scale of values
● The configured limit values can be indicated by lines
● Color changes can signal when a limit value has been exceeded or has not been reached
Gauge
The gauge is a dynamic display object. The gauge displays numeric values in analog form
by means of a pointer. This enables an operator at the HMI device to see at a glance if the
boiler pressure is in the normal range, for example.
Layout
The layout of the gauge depends on the configuration:
● A trailing pointer can display the maximum value reached so far on the scale. The trailing
pointer is reset when the screen is reloaded
● The label on the scale can show the measured variable, for example boiler pressure and
the physical unit, for example bar

Overview
Design of the security system
The configuration engineer can protect the operation of a project by implementing
a security system.
The security system is based on authorizations, user groups and users.
If operating elements protected by a password are operated, the HMI device first requests
that you log on. A logon screen is displayed in which you enter your user name and
password. After logging on, you can operate the operating elements for which you have
the necessary authorizations.
The logon dialog can be set up by the configuration engineer via an individual
operating element.
In the same way, the configuration engineer can set up an operating element to log off. After
logging off, objects assigned password protection can no longer be operated; to do so,
log on again.
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation.
User groups and authorizations
Project-specific user groups are created by the configuration engineer. The "Administrators"
and "PLC User" groups are included in all projects by default. User groups are assigned
authorizations. Authorization required for an operation is specifically defined for each
individual object and function in the project.

Users and passwords
Each user is assigned to exactly one user group.
The following people are allowed to create users and assign them passwords:
● The configuration engineer during configuration
● The administrator on the HMI device
● A user with user management authorization on the HMI device
Irrespective of the user group, each user is allowed to change his own password.
Logoff times
A logoff time is specified in the system for each user. If the time between any two user
actions, such as entering a value or changing screens, exceeds this logoff time, the user is
automatically logged off. The user must then log on again to continue to operate objects
assigned password protection.
Backup and restore
The user data is encrypted and saved on the HMI device to protect it from loss due to
power failure.
The users, passwords, group assignments and logoff times set up on the HMI device can be
backed up and restored. This prevents you having to enter all of the data again on another
HMI device.
NOTICE
The currently valid user data is overwritten in the following cases:
• Depending on the transfer settings, when the project is transferred again
• Upon restore of a backed-up project
• Upon import of the user administration via an operating element. Further information on
this may be available in your plant documentation
The retransferred or restored user data and passwords are valid with immediate effect.

User view
Application
The user view is used to display the users on the HMI device:
● All users on the HMI device are displayed in the user view to the administrator or
to a user with administrator authorizations
● If you are a user without user management authorization, you can only see your
personal user entry
The authorizations of a user after logging on depends on the user group to which
the user is assigned.
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation
Layout
The configuration engineer can implement a simple or enhanced user view.
The two user views offer the same functions. They differ only in the display of information.
Simple user view
If you are not logged on to the HMI device, the only entry contained in the simple user
view is "<ENTER>".
If you are logged on to the HMI device, the simple user view only displays the user name
and user group.
Enhanced user view
The enhanced user view displays information about the users.
The enhanced user view contains the following columns:
● Users
● Password
● Group
● Logoff time
The passwords are encrypted by appear as asterisks.

Overview
Alarms
Alarms indicate events and states on the HMI device which have occurred in the system,
in the process or on the HMI device itself. A status is reported when it is received.
An alarm could trigger one of the following alarm events:
● Incoming
● Outgoing
● Acknowledge
The configuration engineer defines which alarms must be acknowledged by the user.
An alarm may contain the following information:
● Date
● Time
● Alarm text
● Location of fault
● State
● Alarm class
● Alarm number
● Alarm group
● Diagnostics capability

Operating alarms
9.1 Overview
Alarm classes
Alarms are assigned to various alarm classes:
● Error
Alarms in this class must always be acknowledged. Error alarms normally indicate critical
errors within the plant such as "Motor temperature too high"
● Operation
Warning alarms usually indicate states of a plant such as "Motor switched on"
● System
System alarms indicate states or events which occur on the HMI device
● SIMATIC diagnostic alarms
SIMATIC diagnostic alarms show states and events of the SIMATIC S7
or SIMOTION PLCs
● User-specific alarm classes
The properties of this alarm class must be defined in the configuration
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation.
Alarm groups
The configuration engineer can group alarms into alarm groups. When you acknowledge an
individual alarm of an alarm group, you acknowledge all alarms which belong to the same
alarm group.
Alarm buffer
The alarm events are stored in an internal buffer. The size of this alarm buffer depends on
the HMI device type.
Alarm report
The configuration engineer can activate alarm reporting on the project. In this case, alarm
events are output directly on the connected printer.
The configuration engineer can define whether each individual alarm is logged. An alarm of
this type is printed when the alarm events "Incoming" and "Outgoing" occur.
If you want to print alarms of the "System" alarm class, you have to print the contents of the
associated alarm buffer. For this case the configuration engineer has to configure an
operating element for printing the alarm buffer.
Alarm log
Alarm events are stored in an alarm log, provided this log file is configured. The capacity of
the log file is limited by the storage medium and system limits.

Introduction
You can recognize the presence of alarms which must be acknowledged by the following:
● For an HMI device with keys: The LED in the key
ACK
lights up.
● Depending on the configuration: An alarm indicator is displayed on screen.
The configuration determines whether an alarm has to be acknowledged or not. This is also
defined by the alarm class which an alarm belongs to.
LED in the "ACK" key
On an HMI device with keys, an LED is integrated in the key
ACK
. The LED is lit if there are
alarms requiring acknowledgment which must still be acknowledged.
The LED goes out when you acknowledge all alarms requiring acknowledgment.
Alarm indicator
The alarm indicator is a graphic symbol indicating pending alarms or alarms requiring
acknowledgment, depending on the configuration.
The alarm indicator flashes as long as alarms are pending for acknowledgment. The number
displayed indicates the number of pending alarms. The configuration engineer can assign
functions to be executed when the alarm indicator is operated.
Usually, the alarm indicator is only used for error alarms. Further information may be
available in your plant documentation.

Overview
If recipes are used in a project, the following components interact:
● Recipe view / recipe screen
On the HMI device, recipes are displayed and edited in the recipe view or in
a recipe screen.
– The recipe data records from the internal memory of the HMI device are displayed and
edited in the recipe view.
– The values of the recipe tags are displayed and edited in the recipe screen
Depending on the configuration, the values displayed in the recipe view are synchronized
with the values of recipe tags.
● HMI device recipe memory
Recipes are saved in the form of data records in the HMI device recipe memory.
The recipe data can also be saved in recipe tags.
● Recipe tags
The recipe tags contain recipe data. When you edit recipes in a recipe screen, the recipe
values are stored in recipe tags. Depending on the configuration, the values of the recipe
tags are exchanged with the PLC.
The recipe tags can be synchronized with the recipe data records so that the same
values are saved in both.
● Memory card
The memory card is an external storage medium for recipe data records. The recipe
data records are exported from the HMI device recipe memory and are saved on the
memory card in a *.csv file. The records can be reimported from the memory card to
the recipe memory.

Displaying recipes
You can display and edit recipes on the HMI device with a recipe view or recipe screen.
Recipe view
A recipe view is a screen object used to manage recipe data records. The recipe view shows
recipe data records in tabular form.
Depending on the configuration, the recipe view is displayed as follows:
● As enhanced recipe view
● As simple recipe view
The configuration engineer also defines which operating elements are displayed in
the recipe view.

10.5
Recipe values in the HMI device and the PLC
Introduction
You can change the values of a recipe on the HMI device and therefore influence the
manufacturing process or a machine.
Depending on the configuration, the recipe values are displayed, edited and saved in
different ways:
● If you are editing recipes with a recipe view in your project, the values are saved
in recipe data records
● If you are editing recipes in a recipe screen in your project, the values are saved
in recipe tags
Differences may occur between the display values in the recipe view and the values saved in
the associated tags in an ongoing project when you edit recipes with a recipe view and in a
recipe screen. To prevent this, the recipe data record values must be synchronized with the
values of the recipe tags.
You have however the option to perform synchronization operations at any time.
Synchronization only takes place if the configuration engineer has activated the respective
settings for a recipe.
Note
Recipe tags can only be synchronized in the enhanced recipe view.
Synchronizing recipe tags
Synchronization of the recipe tags depends on the configuration:
● Automatic synchronization:
The values of the recipe view are synchronized with the associated recipe tags. In this
case, changes to values in the recipe view have an immediate effect on the values of the
associated recipe tags. The values are only synchronized, when an operating element
that is outside the recipe view is operated.
● Synchronization by the user:
The values of the recipe view and the associated recipe tags are not synchronized
automatically. The configuration engineer has assigned the same function to the
button or a different operating element in the recipe view. The recipe tags and the recipe
view are only synchronized when you operate the buttons or the appropriate operating
element.

10.6 Operating the recipe view
Recipe tags online / offline
The configuration engineer can configure a recipe so that changes to the values of the recipe
tags do not have an immediate effect on the current process.
Synchronization of the recipe values between the HMI device and the PLC depends on
whether the configuration engineer has selected the settings "Tags online" or the setting
"Tags offline" for a recipe.
● "Tags online":
This setting has the following effect:
– When you change recipe values in the recipe screen, these changes are applied
immediately by the PLC and immediately influence the process
– If recipe values are changed in the PLC, the changed values are displayed
immediately in the recipe screen
● "Tags offline":
With this setting, changed recipe values are not synchronized immediately between the
HMI device and the PLC
In this case, the configuration engineer must configure operating elements for transferring
the values to the PLC or reading them from the PLC in a recipe screen. The recipe values
are only synchronized between HMI device and PLC when you operate the appropriate
operating element

Importing a recipe data record
Introduction
You can import values from a CSV file to a recipe data record,
depending on the configuration.
Requirements
● An operating element with the function "Import data record" has been configured,
for example a button
● A screen with a recipe view is displayed.
Procedure
Proceed as follows:
1. If the recipe view contains several recipes: Select the recipe which contains the recipe
data record to be imported.
2. Operate the operating element with the function "Import data record".
The record is imported from an external data medium as a CSV file and then displayed
in the recipe view after import.
Result
The imported recipe data record is saved on the HMI device.
Deviating structure
If the structure of the CSV file differs from the structure of the recipe, deviations are
handled as follows:
● Any additional values in the CSV file will be rejected
● The system applies the configured default value to the recipe data record if the CSV file
contains an insufficient number of values
● If the CSV file contains values of the wrong data type, the configured default value is set
in the recipe data record
Example:
The imported CSV file contains values that were entered as floating point numbers.
However, the corresponding tag expects an integer value. In this case, the system
discards the imported value and uses the configured default.

You can export one or more recipe data records to a CSV file, depending on the
configuration. After export, the values in the recipe data record can be further processed in a
spreadsheet program such as MS Excel. The degree to which you can influence the export
depends on the configuration.
Requirements
● A screen with a recipe view is displayed.
● An operating element with the function "Export record" has been configured.
● The following tags are configured equally in the recipe view and for the
"Export record" operating element:
– Recipe number
– Data record number
Procedure
Proceed as follows:
1. If the recipe view contains several recipes: Select the recipe which contains the desired
recipe data record.
2. Select the recipe data record you want to export.
3. Operate the operating element which was configured for export, for example the
"Export data record" button.
The data record is exported as a CSV file to an external data medium.
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation.
Result
The recipe data record is exported.

Entering a recipe data record
Introduction
You would like to enter production data on the HMI device without interrupting
the process in the machine or plant. For this reason, the production data should
not be transferred to the PLC.
Procedure
Proceed as follows:
1. Call the recipe view or a recipe screen.
2. Select the desired recipe data record.
3. Enter the values of the elements.
4. Save the recipe data record.
The recipe data record is saved in the internal memory of the HMI device.

Manual production sequence
Introduction
You request the production data of different workpieces from the PLC and display this data
on the screen of the HMI device for inspection. You want to correct the transferred
production data in the recipe view or the recipe screen if necessary.
Procedure
A scanner connected to the PLC reads the barcode of a workpiece. The barcode names
correspond to the names in the recipe data record. Based on the barcode name, the PLC
can read the required recipe data record. The recipe data record is displayed for inspection
on the HMI device. You can now edit and save the recipe data record. Then transfer the
edited recipe data record to the PLC again.

Clean screen on MP 377 Touch
Introduction
The HMI touch screen can be cleaned when it is switched on and a project is running. An
operating element must be available in the project that can be used to call the "clean"
screen. Once the clean screen is activated, touch screen operation is locked for a configured
period of time. The time the touch screen is locked can be set between 5 and 30 seconds.
The time remaining for the lockout is indicated by a progress bar.
NOTICE
Unintentional responses
When cleaning the touch screen, an unintentional response in the controller can be
triggered by touching keys.
Always open the clean screen or switch off the HMI device before you clean the touch
screen while the system is running!
Once the period for the clean screen has passed, operations are again possible. Avoid data
inadvertent operations.
Cannot be operated when the clean screen is active
When the clean screen is active, operations on the HMI device are not possible.
Wait for the period for the clean screen to lapse. Then you can operate the plant again with
the HMI device.

ESD guideline
Definition of ESD
All electronic modules are equipped with large-scale integrated ICs or components. Due to
their design, these electronic elements are highly sensitive to overvoltage, and thus to
any electrostatic discharge. These electronic components are therefore specially
identified as ESDs.
Abbreviations
The following abbreviation is commonly used for electrostatic sensitive devices:
● EGB – Elektrostatisch Gefährdete Bauteile/Baugruppen (Germany)
● ESD – Electrostatic Sensitive Device (internationally recognized term)
Labeling
ESDs are labeled with the following symbol:
Electrostatic charging
CAUTION
Electrostatic charging
ESDs may be destroyed by voltages far below the level perceived by human beings.
Voltages of this kind develop when a component or an assembly is touched by a person
who is not grounded against static electricity. Usually, it is unlikely that damage to an ESD
as a result of overvoltage is detected immediately but may become apparent only after a
longer period of operation.
Prevent electrostatic charging of your body before you touch the ESD!

Protective measures against electrostatic discharge
CAUTION
Observe grounding measures
When working with electrostatic sensitive devices, make sure that the person,
the workplace and the packaging are properly grounded. This helps to avoid
electrostatic charging.
As a rule, only touch the ESD if this is unavoidable, for example for maintenance. When you
touch modules, make sure that you do not touch the pins on the modules or the PCB tracks.
In this way, the discharged energy can not affect the sensitive devices.
Discharge electrostatic electricity from your body if you are performing measurements on an
ESD. Do so by touching grounded metallic parts.
Always use grounded measuring instruments.

Introduction
System alarms on the HMI device provide information about internal states of the HMI device
and PLC.
The following overview shows the causes of system alarms and how to eliminate the cause
of error.
Some of the system alarms described in this section are relevant to individual HMI devices
based on their range of features.
Note
System alarms are only indicated if an alarm window was configured. System alarms are
output in the language currently set on your HMI device.
System alarm parameters
System alarms may contain encrypted parameters which are relevant to troubleshooting
because they provide a reference to the source code of the runtime software. These
parameters are output after the text "Error code:"

power supply.
Set up the printer once again. Obtain a network printer
authorization.
If the error persists, contact the Hotline!
10001
No printer is installed or a default printer has not
been set up.
Install a printer and/or select it as the default printer.
10002
Overflow of the graphics buffer for printing. Up to
two images are buffered.
Allow sufficient intervals between successive print jobs.
10003
Images can now be buffered again.
--
10004
Overflow of the buffer for printing lines in text mode
(e.g. alarms). Up to 1000 lines are buffered.
Allow sufficient intervals between successive print jobs.
10005
Text lines can now be buffered again.
--
10006
The Windows printing system reports an error.
Refer to the output text and the error ID to
determine the possible causes. Nothing is printed
or the print is faulty.
Repeat the action if necessary.
20000 - Global script alarms
Number
Effect/causes
Remedy
20010
An error has occurred in the specified script line.
Execution of the script was therefore aborted. Note
the system alarm that may have occurred prior to
this.
Select the specified script line in the configuration.
Ensure that the tags used are of the allowed types.
Check system functions for the correct number and
types of parameters.
20011
An error has occurred in a script that was called by
the specified script.
Execution of the script was therefore aborted in the
called script.
Note the system alarm that may have occurred
prior to this.
In the configuration, select the script that has been
called directly or indirectly by the specified script.
Ensure that the tags used are of the allowed types.
Check system functions for the correct number and
types of parameters.
20012
The configuration data is inconsistent. The script
could therefore not be generated.
Recompile the configuration.
20013
The scripting component of WinCC flexible
Runtime is not correctly installed. Therefore, no
scripts can be executed.
Reinstall WinCC flexible Runtime on your PC.
Rebuild your project with "Project > Generator >
Generate" and transfer the project to the HMI device.
20014
The system function returns a value that is not
written in any return tag.
Select the specified script in the configuration.
Check whether the script name has been assigned a
value.
20015
Too many successive scripts have been triggered
in short intervals. When more than 20 scripts are
queued for processing, any subsequent scripts are
rejected. In this case, the script indicated in the
alarm is not executed.
Find what is triggering the scripts. Extend the times,
e.g. the polling time of the tags which trigger the
scripts.

HMI device
An HMI device is a device used for the operation and monitoring of machines and plants.
The statuses of the machine or plant are indicated by means of graphic elements or by
indicator lamps on the HMI device. The operating elements of the HMI device allow the
operator to interact with the processes of the machine or plant.
HMI device image
A file that can be transferred from the configuring PC to the HMI device. The HMI device
image contains the operating system and elements of the runtime software required to
run a project.
I/O field
An I/O field enables the input or output of values on the HMI device which are transferred
to the PLC.
Infotext
An infotext is a configured information on objects within a project. Infotext for an alarm, for
example, may contain information on the cause of the fault and troubleshooting routines.
Object
An object is a component of a project. Example: screen or alarm. Objects are used to view or
enter texts and values on the HMI device.
Operating element
Component of a project used to enter values and trigger functions. A button, for example, is
an operating element.
Plant
General term referring to machines, processing centers, systems, plants and processes
which are operated and monitored on an HMI device.

Process visualization
Visualization of technical processes by means of text and graphic elements. Configured
plant screens allow operator intervention in active plant processes by means of the input and
output data.
Project
Result of a configuration using a configuration software. The project normally contains
several screens with embedded system-specific objects, basic settings and alarms. The
project file of a project configured in WinCC flexible is saved under the file name
extension *.hmi.
You need to distinguish between a project on the configuring PC and that on an HMI device.
A project may be available in more languages on the configuring PC than can be managed
on the HMI device. The project on the configuring PC can also be set up for different HMI
devices. Only the runtime project that has been generated for the respective HMI device can
be transferred to it.
Project file
File generated from the runtime project file for use on the HMI device. The project file is
normally not transferred and remains on the configuring PC.
The file name extension of a source file is *.hmi.
Project file, compressed
Compressed format of the project file. The compressed project file can be transferred
together with the runtime project file to the respective HMI device. For this purpose,
backtransfer must be enabled in the project on the configuring PC. The compressed project
file is normally stored on an external memory card.
The file extension of a compressed file is *.pdz.
Recipe
Combination of tags forming a fixed data structure. The data structure configured can be
assigned data on the HMI device and is then referred to as a record. The use of recipes
ensures that all the assigned data is transferred synchronously to the PLC during the
transfer of a record.
Runtime project file
File generated from the project file for a specific HMI device. The runtime project file is
transferred to the corresponding HMI device and used to operate and monitor plants.
The extension of a compressed file is *.pdz.
Runtime software
The runtime software is a process visualization software used to test a project on a
configuring PC.

Screen
Form of the visualization of all logically related process data for a plant. The visualization of
the process data can be supported by graphic objects.
Screen object
Configured object used to display or operate the plant, e.g. rectangle, I/O field or alarm view.
STEP 7
STEP 7 is the programming software for SIMATIC S7, SIMATIC C7 and
SIMATIC WinAC PLCs.
STEP 7 Micro/WIN
STEP 7 Micro/WIN is the programming software for SIMATIC S7-200 PLCs.
Symbolic I/O field
A symbolic I/O field is a field for the input and output of the value. Contains a list of default
entries from which one can be selected.
System alarm
A system alarm is assigned to the "System" alarm class. A system alarm refers to internal
states on the HMI device and the PLC.
Tab sequence
During configuration, this defines the sequence in which objects are activated on
pressing the <TAB> key.
Tag
Defined memory location to which values can be written to and read from. This can be done
from the PLC or the HMI device. Based on whether the tag is interconnected with the PLC or
not, we distinguish between "external" tags (process tags) and "internal" tags.
Transfer
Transfer of a runtime project from the configuring PC to the HMI device.
