Product Description
Applications of
OP7 and OP17
1
Operator Panels OP7 and OP17 allow operating states, current process values
and malfunctions of a connected PLC to be visualized. In addition, inputs can
be made on the OP which can be written directly to the PLC. Some functions
relating to machine diagnostics can also be executed on the Operator Panel.
The Operator Panels feature a number of standard functions. The displays
and operation of the devices can be optimized by the configurer to meet the
requirements of the process.
The Operator Panels are suitable for fitting into switching cabinets and control desks. A printer can be attached to the OP for logging processes during
automation operation.
1.1
Configuration and process control phases
Creating data
areas
Before an OP can go into service, it has to be prepared for its job of
visualizing data from the PLC, i.e. it has to be configured. As far as the PLC
is concerned, data areas used by the OP to communicate with the PLC have
to be created in the memory.
Configuration with
ProTool
The configuration for the OP is created on a computer (PC/PU) using
ProTool configuration software under Microsoft WindowsTM. When the
configuration is ready, it is transferred to the OP. Before this can be done,
however, the computer has to be connected to the Operator Panel. Following
transfer of the configuration, the OP has to be connected to the PLC.
The OP now communicates with the PLC and reacts to program flows on the
PLC on the basis of the configured requirements.
figure 1-1 depicts the configuration and process control phases described
above:

Configuration and Process Control Phase
Text which is required to be displayed on the OP has first to be created on the
PC/PU with ProTool and then transferred to the OP. If, for example, text for
display is required to comprise static and variable components, the tags have
to be configured and the static text for explaining the tags has to be entered for example:
Temperature Variable1 C of Furnace1
Here, Temperature C of Furnace1 is the static text and Variable1 is the tag that is read from the memory area of the PLC.

You will find information on configuring the OP in the ProTool/ Lite User’s
Guide. The Communication User’s Guide provides information on connecting
the OP to the PLC.

Visualizing and controlling processes
Display and
control functions
The basic functions of an OP consist in displaying process states and in controlling the process. The following display and control functions can be configured on Operator Panels OP7 and OP17:
screens
event messages
alarm messages
recipes
help text
logging
languages
schedulers for the OP17
Screens
Data supplied by the PLC may be displayed together on a screen and modified individually, if required. A screen consists of several screen entries
since, for example, more related data are required for describing a machine
state than can normally be displayed in the window of a screen. Therefore
data on operating temperature, fill level, speed and running time can illustrate the current machine state.
The OP7 and OP17 are Operator Panels with text based displays. Accordingly, a screen on the display comprises text items which may include static
text and current state values.
Screens may be combined on the OP in a directory. You can use the directory
to display, print and edit screens.
Event messages
Event messages are information and operating notes on current machine and
process states during regular production operations. Event messages may
contain process values. Process values are displayed either numerically - for
example,
Motor running at 3000 revs
or symbolically - for example,
Motor running normally,
where a specific control value is assigned to normally.
The classification of a message as an event message is done at the configuration stage.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
1-3
Alarm messages
Alarm messages show, in contrast to event messages, critical machine states
dur ing production operations. Due to their urgency, they have to be acknowledged before any other action is possible.
Alarm messages may contain process values. Process values are displayed
either numerically - for example
Motor speed 4500
or symbolically - for example
Motor speed too high,
where a specific control value is assigned to too high.
This type of message has a higher display priority than an event message. If
an alarm message is issued, any event message or screen that is being displayed is replaced with a flashing alarm on the display.
The classification of a message as an alarm message is made at the configuration stage.
Recipes
When a product is made up of various ingredients in certain ratios, this information is stored in a so-called recipe.
Take orange juice for example. Its production and bottling requires that
orange concentrate and water be mixed in a certain ratio. These values are
stored as tags in a recipe.
Each recipe can be made up of several data records containing different values for the recipe.
The data can be edited in the OP, transferred to the PLC and read out from
the PLC.
In the OP, the recipes are combined by recipe number and title in a recipe
directory.
Help text
Help text consists of configurable additional information and operator instructions relating to event messages, alarm messages and screens. If for example an alarm message arises, this enables additional information on how to
eliminate faults to be displayed.
Help text can also be displayed by pressing a key, if required, when the
HELP LED is on.
Logging
1-4
Messages can be printed in online mode by means of the printer connected to
the OP. Furthermore, there is a possibility of printing all the event and alarm
messages that have accumulated in the buffer concerned.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17

Multilinguality
Message text, screens, help text and system messages may be displayed in
several languages. Up to three of the languages listed below can be loaded
simultaneously on the same OP and presented to the operator for selection on
line:
German
English
French
Italian
Spanish
Russian (Cyrillic characters).
Schedulers
A scheduler is a regularly recurring point in time (i.e., hourly, daily, weekly,
annually) at which a certain function is to be executed. When a scheduler
time is reached, the configured bit is set in the interface area of the PLC and
the configured function is executed.

With the OP7 and the OP17, updated and newly created data are stored in a
non-volatile flash memory. This means that current data are immediately
available following an OP re-start.
The flash memory cannot be accessed while data are being updated, and the
OP cannot be operated. The update rate is determined by the time response of
the delete and write cycles of the flash memory. For technological reasons,
this rate is slower than the access time for volatile memories.
A system message is output to the OP while data updating is in progress.

Exception:
Input fields for tags in KM format – for instance, when calling the functions
Status/Force Var – are changed to left-justified. When input begins, the old
value does not disappear from the display completely but its bit pattern is
overwritten one character at a time. You move the cursor in this type of field
by pressing

Limit-value check
You can configure limit values for numerical input fields. In this type of
field, a limit-value check takes place, i.e. the entered values are applied only
if they lie within the configured limits. If a value outside these limits is entered, a system message is displayed and, after it has been canceled, the old
value is restored in the field.
Decimal places
If a numerical field has been configured with a certain number of decimal
places and too many have been entered, they are ignored; if too few have
been entered, the field is padded with zeroes.

Help Text
Purpose
Help text is written when configuring with ProTool and provides additional
information in the language set at the OP. Info text can be configured for
event messages and alarm messages,
screens,
screen entries,
input fields and dual I/O fields,
recipes, recipe entries,
schedulers.
Help text can be used to convey, for example, information to the user on the
current assignment of the soft keys. Help text relating to an alarm message
may contain additional hints, for example, on the possible cause of the alarm
and how to remedy it.
Displaying help
text
The availability of help text is indicated by the HELP LED being lit. Configured help text can be output by pressing the HELP key on the OP.
If the cursor is positioned in an input field or in an I/O field for which help
text is available (lit LED), the help text is output by pressing the HELP key.
Pressing the HELP key a second time displays help text associated with the
screen entry, if configured.
If the HELP key is pressed in a field for which help text is not available, help
text associated with the screen entry, if configured, is displayed directly.
Configured information text associated with a screen is obtained either by
pressing the HELP key in the directory when the cursor is positioned on the
corresponding screen.
Scrolling through
help text

The keys
and
are used to scroll through help text, if appropriate. The ESC key terminates display of help text, and the previous display is
shown again.

Using the OP with Its Standard Functions
4
Loading a
configuration
Once the operating voltage has been connected, you have to load a configuration into the OP so that you can operate it. The OP is in Download mode until a configuration is loaded.
Using standard
screens
The configuration software supplied to you, ProTool, includes a configuration
which contains standard screens. You can choose all the functions required
for operating the OPs by using these standard screens. The different functions
are described in this manual with reference to the standard screens.
4.1
Operating Levels
Message level and
screen level
In OP operation, you have to distinguish between two distinct operating levels, between which you can switch:
Message level
The message level is the highest level on the OP. At message level, waiting event messages, alarm messages and system messages are displayed.
After the OP starts up, it changes to message level if
– a system message or an alarm message is waiting to be displayed
– a start screen has not been defined in the configuration. In this case,
the OP displays the standby message (refer to section 7.1.1).
– Screen level
At the screen level, functions are chosen, serviced and executed. If a
start screen has been defined in the configuration, the OP changes to
screen level after it starts up and calls the start screen. From the start
screen you branch, depending on the configuration, to other screens.
On the screens, you view current process values, can enter values and
initiate functions by means of soft keys.
Screen hierarchy
The linking of individual screens is referred to as a ”screen hierarchy”. If you
go to the bottom of the screen hierarchy, you go back one stage by pressing
key ESC, right back to the start screen should you wish. From here you can
return to the message level by pressing the ESC key. You can also return
directly to the message level from a screen, depending on the configuration.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
4-1
Changing
operating levels
The operating level is changed either by the operator or automatically by the
OP (figure 4-1).
Change by the operator:
Press key
ENTER
to change the operating level from message level to screen level,
ESC
to change the operating level from screen level to message level.
You cannot branch backward from the message level by pressing ESC. The
key is designed to terminate the display of a system message at this level.
Forced change to message level:
You exit from the screen level automatically whenever a system message
or an alarm message is waiting to be displayed. The OP then changes to
message level to display the message. You cannot exit from the message
level while a system message or unacknowledged alarm message is being
displayed. The display of an unacknowledged alarm message is indicated
on the OP by flashing of
– the alarm message and
– the ACK-LED (icon
).
Press key
ACK
to acknowledge an alarm message,
ESC
to hide a system message.
After the alarm message has been acknowledged, the ACK LED goes off
and, after the system message has been hidden, the OP returns to the point
from which it changed to the message level.

Standard Screens
Basic operations
with standard
screens
The standard screens contain functions that are fundamental to OP operation.
They include, for instance, calling and printing message buffers, editing passwords and modifying parameters in online mode. Process-specific implementations, such as event messages or screens for the process, are not included.
Functions on
standard screens
Standard screens are called from a basic screen by means of a soft key. From
the basic screen, a jump is made to the following screens:
Event messages
At this point the event buffer is called, printed or deleted.
Alarm messages
At this point the alarm buffer is called, printed or deleted.
Screens
At this point the screen directory is called to edit or print screens. All the
screens which were given the ”directory” attribute are listed here. If you
still have not created any screens of your own, the directory will be
empty.
Data records
At this point you can set up, edit and print data records. You can also
transfer data records from the OP to the PLC and back.
Status tag
At this point the PU function STATUS VAR is called; you can use it to
display PLC operands.
Force tag
At this point the PU function FORCE VAR is called; you can use it to
display and modify PLC operands.
System settings
At this point you can modify settings in online mode. This includes, for
example, printer parameters, interface parameters, mode, and language
changing.
Edit password
At this point the superuser assigns passwords for the different password
levels. Furthermore, login and logout are included here.
Figure 4-2 shows an overview of the screen hierarchy of standard screens.
You will find detailed information on functions and handling standard screens
in the relevant chapters of this manual.

can control and monitor the process by means of suitable screens and standard screens and perform system settings.
With reference to the standard screens, a description is provided below of the
procedure for branching between individual screens within the screen hierarchy.
Branching using
soft keys
Call in your configured screen hierarchy the tandard basic screen. Its name
is displayed on the first line. Depending on the OP version and the number of
lines to be configured (OP17), the next lines include a different number of
text elements of the current entry. These text elements show the name of
other standard screens to which you can branch by using the assigned soft
keys.
Using the soft keys beneath the symbols << and >>, you can move the displayed screen segment of the current screen. You branch to the next screen by
pressing the soft key beneath the appropriate text indicating the name of the
screen to be called.
Figure 4-3 shows the branch principle on a configured 8-line display (in this
instance, the OP17). figure 4-4 shows the branch principle of the 4-line display of the OP7.

Screens
Displaying and
influencing the
process on
screens
On the OP, the process – for example, a processing machine or a mixing unit
– is displayed on screens and manipulated. The screens are configured by the
configurer for specific users.
On screens, associated process values are acquired and provide an overview
of a process or system. In addition to this alphanumeric ”imaging” of the process, screens provide a means of entering process values and, consequently,
of controlling the process.
Process values on a screen can be randomly assigned to subject-related
groups. An example of this is shown in figure 5-1.

Screen Entries
Displaying a
screen entry
Screens consist of entries. Every screen may contain up to 99 entries. Irrespective of the configured number of lines, precisely one entry is displayed
per display page on the OP. Lines which may have not been fully configured
are displayed as blank lines.
An example of a screen entry is the two lines in the afore mentioned example
(figure 5-1)
Furn1 temp.: 80 °C

Components of a
screen entry
A screen entry consists of the following components:
entry text
The static text contains explanations for the operator. It may also include
information on how the soft keys have been assigned.
fields for the
– output of PLC actual values, date, time,
– input of PLC tags which are immediately transferred to the PLC after
being entered,
– combined I/O of PLC tags.
soft keys
Different function calls for the different screens are assigned to the soft keys.
Updating values in
screen entries
The configuration defines the intervals at which PLC values are updated, i.e.
read again from the PLC and displayed.
With large screens containing more than 159 actual values or setpoint-actual
values, ”partial screen updating” is automatically enabled. To enhance performance, only those values are updated which are currently present on the
display. This may mean that an older value is briefly displayed when scrolling through screen entries. Updating of the visible actual values is faster as a
result, however.
I/O fields
Output fields display actual values of the PLC in numerical or symbolic
form; input fields define tags in numerical or symbolic form. In input fields,
the flashing cursor is visible.
For symbolic I/O fields, you can configure up to 256 text elements which you
can call on the OP using a selection field and apply to the screen entry.
With inputs of numerical values, configured number formats and limit values
apply with respect to the number of places before and after the decimal point.

Password Protection
Access protection

Password protection can be configured for function keys/soft keys and input
fields in order to permit only authorized persons to work with the OP.
Password Levels and Access
Password
hierarchy
When configuring with ProTool, the function keys/soft keys and input fields
are assigned hierarchically ordered password levels from 0 to 9, 0 being the
lowest and 9 the highest level in the hierarchy. The password levels of the
standard screens are listed in Appendix A.
At the same time as you assign a password to an operator or to an entire
group of operators, you also assign them authorization to execute functions of
a certain password level.
When you log in with the OP under a password of a certain password level,
you are given the authority to execute functions of this password level and
functions from lower levels.
Password level 0
At this level, the lowest in the hierarchy, functions are assigned which, when
executed, have no or little effect on the course of the process; these are normally calls of functions not having input options – for example, viewing message buffers.
You do not have to enter a password to call a function of password level 0. If
you call a function that is assigned a higher level, the OP prompts you to enter a password.
Password levels
1 to 8
Levels 0 to 8 are assigned to functions of ascending importance. A password
level is assigned to a password by the superuser as part of his password management responsibilities.
Password level 9
Permission to execute functions of password level 9 is the sole responsibility
of the superuser, who has access to all OP functions. Only the superuser is
allowed to perform password management.

Messages
Overview
Messages displayed on the OP indicate events and states in the control process. A message consists of at least static text and can also include tags.
The following types of message are displayed on the OP:
event messages,
alarm messages and
system messages.
Event and alarm messages displayed are stored in the OP in their own message buffers. The messages stored in the buffers can be shown on the display
and printed out on the printer in the form of a log.
Message states
Event and alarm messages can have the following events:
Arrive:
identifies the occurrence or arrival of the message.
Depart:
cause of the message is no longer available.
Acknowledged (alarm messages only):
Message has been noticed and confirmed by the operator or the PLC.
These message states are detected by the OP with accurate timing and output
when a message page or the message buffer is displayed.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
7-1
7.1
Message types
Event and alarm
messages
Event and alarm messages are configured. Event messages indicate a status
in the process, alarm messages indicate faults/errors. Event and alarm messages are initiated by the PLC. Due to their critical nature, alarm messages
have to be acknowledged.
System messages
System messages are initiated by the OP. They are not configured. They
provide information on operating states of the OP or maloperations and
breakdowns in communication.
7.1.1
Event and alarm messages
Definition
The process states indicated by event messages and those indicated by alarm
messages are defined during configuration.
Messages that provide information on regular processes or states should be
categorized as event messages – for example
Temperature reached or
Motor running.
Messages on malfunctions referring to processes or states should be categorized as alarm messages – for example
Motor temperature too high or
Valve will not open.
Due to their critical nature, alarm messages have to be acknowledged. In doing so, the operator confirms that he has noticed the alarm message. Messages can also be acknowledged by the PLC.
Apart from status messages, information on operation can also be configured
as event or alarm messages. If, for example, a machine operator wants to
start the bottling process but has forgotten to open the water intake valve on
the mixer, a message such as
Open water intake valve
can prompt him to rectify the error.
Presentation
Event and alarm messages can be configured in such a way that any text
components can be made to stand out from the remaining message text by
means of flashing or a large font size. Alarm messages that have not been
acknowledged always flash.
Messages may contain static text and tag fields. The tag fields display current
actual values of the PLC in numerical or symbolic form. In addition, the date
and time can also be output in messages.
7-2
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
Standby message
A sub-category of the event message is the standby message. The standby
message is the event message number 0. It appears on the display when the
OP is operating at the message level and event or alarm messages are not
waiting.
The standby message is stored in the firmware and contains the version and
the device type – for example
OP7
Vx.xx
4 x 20 char.
Figure 7-1
Example of Standard Standby Message on OP7
Depending on the configuration, the standby message can be represented by
other text – for example a company logo. It can contain the date and time but
not tags.
Alarm and event
buffers
Alarm and event messages are written to alarm and event buffers, respectively, on the OP when they arrive.
The message buffer of the OP can store up to 256 events. Events are the:
arrival of a message,
acknowledgment of a message,
departure of a message.
The following details are entered in the buffer in chronological order:
incident of events
arrival, departure and achnowledgement
message numbers
values of tags at the time of arrival and departure.
Overflow warning
During configuration, you can define a remaining buffer space. When this
remaining buffer space has been reached, an automatic overflow warning is
issued – for example
EM remaining buffer.
Messages continue to be inserted into the buffer even after the remaining
buffer space has been reached.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
7-3
Message bit
procedure
7.1.2
If there is a condition present in the current process for a message to be
issued – for example, a tag has been reached – a bit is set by the PLC application program in the data area for event and alarm messages. The OP
reads the data area after a configured polling time. In this way, a message is
detected as having ”arrived”. The bit is reset by the PLC when the condition
for issuing the message no longer exists. The message is then regarded as
having ”departed”.
Alarm messages
Acknowledging an
alarm message
Due to their critical nature, alarm messages have to be acknowledged. This
can be done manually by the operator or automatically by the PLC.
To acknowledge an alarm message manually, press this system key.
ACK
The OP displays unacknowledged alarm messages in flashing mode.
The LED assigned to the Acknowledge key (icon ) also flashes.
After all the alarm messages have been acknowledged, the ACK LED display
changes from flashing to permanently on. Not until all the acknowledged
alarm messages have departed is the LED turned off. In this way, it is impossible for you to forget an alarm message.
If several alarm messages are waiting to be displayed, after one has been
acknowledged the next one is shown, which similarly has to be

If no more alarm messages are waiting to be displayed, the OP reverts to the
operating level from which it branched to the message level to display the
alarm messages.
Acknowledgement
groups, group
acknowledgement
During configuration, you can combine several alarm messages to form an
”acknowledgement group”. In this way you can acknowledge all the other
alarm messages (consequential faults) in that acknowledgment group by acknowledging the first alarm message – for example, the cause of the fault –
without all of them having to be output to the display on the OP (group acknowledgement). You can configure up to four acknowledgment groups.
If alarm messages are not assigned to an acknowledgment group, only the
one that happens to be on the display is acknowledged if more are waiting.
Inhibiting the
display of alarm
messages
7-4
There is the possibility of inhibiting the display of frequently occurring alarm
messages for the time being until the OP starts up as a result of a cold or
warm start. Before you can inhibit the display of an alarm message, you must
have logged onto the OP with a password having a password level of at
least 8.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
Operation
To inhibit an alarm message, press the following keys
simultaneously
ESC
ACK
The OP acknowledges inhibition of the alarm message by means of system
message $ 335. After that, this message will not be displayed until the next
time the OP starts up.
Inhibited alarm messages are no longer inserted into the alarm buffer from
the time of inhibition, either. They are stored in the alarm buffer only from
the time they first occur until such time as the display is inhibited.
Note
The alarm message inhibit function should be used only during the commissioning phase of the OP.

7.1.3
System messages
Definition
System messages indicate operating states within the OP. For example, they
draw your attention to maloperations or a breakdown in communication. This
message type has top display priority. If a relevant fault occurs on the OP, the
active event message or alarm message is removed from the display and a
system message is issued in its place.
After the system message has been hidden, the OP returns to the point from
which it branched.
Serious and nonserious system
messages
System messages are classified as serious and non-serious system messages.
A serious system message is based on an error that can be rectified only by a
cold or warm restart of the OP. All other errors generate a non-serious system
message – for example, when printing has been initiated but a printer has not
been connected to the OP.
If the display of a non-serious system message is not automatically
canceled after a short while, you can do so manually by pressing
this system key.
ESC
Display of a non-serious system message can also be canceled automatically
when a configured display time has expired.
A list of possible system messages and their explanations will be found in the
appendix B of this manual.
Inhibiting system
messages
Display of system messages (with the exception of internal errors 7xx) can be
inhibited at the configuration stage. System messages whose display has been
inhibited continue to be inserted into the system message buffer and thus can
be viewed on the display later.
System message
buffer
The system message buffer can store up to 100 messages. System messages
are inserted into it with their message number and their arrival; their departure is not recorded. Some minor errors and operator errors are not logged in
the system message buffer. Messages from the system message buffer are
displayed in the same order as they arrived, i.e. first in first out, last in last
out.

Displaying Messages
Display
Event and alarm messages are always output to the display at message level
and are displayed according to display and message priorities.
If several messages having identical display and message priorities exist simultaneously, the most recent is displayed in all cases, for both event and
alarm messages.
Display priorities
System messages always have top priority in so far as display is concerned;
unacknowledged alarm messages always have the second highest priority.
Otherwise, messages are displayed in different sequences depending on
whether separate or together output of event and alarm messages was configured.
Message priorities
Message priorities of
1 (low) to
4 (high)
can be set within event and alarm messages in the configuration according to
their importance. If several messages of the same display priority exist simultaneously, they are displayed according to their message priorities, those with
the highest message priority being shown first and those with the lowest last.
Displaying the
first/last message
Depening on the setting, either the oldest message (First) or the newest message (Last) is displayed when there are several alarm messages present. You
can change this setting on the OP online via the standard screen System Settings. To do this, select the standard screen System Settings DispMsg and
set the appropriate parameter.

Deleting Messages
Purpose
All message events for event and alarm messages are automatically stored in
the event message buffer or alarm message buffer respectively. Each of these
buffers has space for up to 256 events. To prevent a buffer overflow, event
and alarm messages must be deleted from their buffers.
Message events from the event message buffer or alarm message buffer are
deleted
automatically when buffer overflow occurs
by means of the appropriate standard screen.
System messages are deleted automatically only when the buffer overflows.
7.4.1
Deleting alarm message and event message buffers upon buffer

Events Overflow
Deleting upon
buffer overflow
If the alarm or event message buffer has insufficient space to accept any
more message events, message events are automatically deleted until the specified remaining buffer capacity is reached. Deletion is carried out in the following order:
The oldest departed messages.
For departed event messages, the message events ’arrival’ and ’departure’
are deleted. For departed alarm messages, the message events ’arrival’,
departure’ and ’acknowledged’ are deleted.
Queued messages.
If there is still insufficient space for new events, the oldest queued messages are deleted in the case of event messages.
In the case of alarm messages, deletion is carried out in the following order:
Acknowledged alarm messages yet to depart
Unacknowledged alarm messages that have already departed
Unacknowledged alarm messages yet to depart.

Printing Messages
How to print out
You can print alarm and event messages
as a direct message log (refer to section 7.5.1),
as a full printout of the message buffer (refer to section 7.5.2),
upon buffer overflow (refer to section 7.4.1).
7.5.1
Direct Message Logging
Print time
Event and alarm messages can be printed upon arrival and departure (alarm
messages upon acknowledgment, too) if this was set when the message was
configured. System messages are not logged directly.
If direct message logging follows another print function, the header of the
direct message log is re-printed.
Temporary storage
if the printer is
disabled
If the printer is disabled, not ready or assigned to another print function, up to
16 messages are stored temporarily. Temporary storage of the messages for
the message log is independent of the message buffer concerned.
Activating/
deactivating direct
message logging
You can activate and deactivate direct message logging online at the OP via
the standard screen System Settings Printer. You do this by selecting the
symbolic input field Message log in the list of parameters and setting the
value ON or OFF.

Recipes
Purpose
Recipes are combinations of tags for a certain purpose. The purpose of
recipes is to transfer data together to the PLC. This involves synchronization
between the OP and PLC.
Data records
When configuring you define not only the recipe but the data structure too.
The structure is assigned data at the OP. This data structure (recipe) can be
used repeatedly and assigned different data. Recipes assigned data are referred to as “data records“. Data records are stored in the OP. This saves
memory space in the PLC.
Example of a
recipe
Orange nectar, orange drink and orange juice are to be produced using the
same bottling station at a fruit juice plant. The mixing proportions are different for each drink, but the ingredients are always identical. The production
details are configured in this example as the recipe called ”Mixture”.

Components of a
recipe
A recipe consists of a series of recipe entries. Each entry contains a maximum of one input field (i.e., tag). Depending on the configuration,
either direct or symbolic value input can be used in an input field.
The recipe called Mixture could be set up from the following entries.

Input fields (tags)
In contrast to screens, several entries are displayed on the OP simultaneously
for recipes.
Data records on
the OP
On the OP, the tags allocated to the input fields are assigned with values and
stored on the OP. Together, these values form one data record of the recipe.
Several data records can be created for one recipe. This permits a fruit juice
plant to operate with different types of drinks, for example, by using a different data record for each type of drink.

All data records are stored in the OP. Only the data record which is active at
the moment is stored in the PLC. This saves memory space in the PLC.
Identification of
recipes and data
records
A recipe is identified by a recipe number and a recipe title specified during
configuration. A data record is identified by a data record number and a data
record name assigned in the OP.
The clear and unmistakable identification factor for a data record is the data
record number and not the data record name.
This means that, although several data records with the same name may
exist, several data records with the same number cannot exist. If no name is
assigned to a data record, it is assigned the name ”data record”.

Setting OP Modes
Modes
You can set the following OP modes by means of standard screens:
Online,
Offline,
Download and
Loop-Through (OP17 only).
Online
This the default operating mode for unrestricted control and visualization of
the process. In Online mode, there is a logical link between the OP and the
PLC, or the OP tries to establish a link.
Offline
In Offline mode, a logical link does not exist between the OP and the PLC.
The OP does not even attempt to establish a link. You can still operate the
OP. It is not possible to control and visualize the process.
Download
In Download mode, data can be downloaded from the configuration computer to the OP. There is no logical link between the PLC and the OP in this
mode. You are not able to operate the OP in download mode.
Loop-Through with
OP17
While the OP is being commissioned, troubleshooting or optimization of the
PLC program is often necessary. For this purpose, the PU or PC can be connected to the second interface of the OP17 in Loop-Through mode. This way
it is possible to communicate between PC/PU and the PLC through the OP17.
For the restrictions which have to be taken into account in Loop-Through
mode refer to section 14.2.4.
Jobs from the PLC to the OP17 can be initiated only when the OP17 is either
working in online mode or has been switched to loop-through mode.

Process-Dependent Operator Guidance
Situation-specific
process control
11
Different action is normally required or allowed in different operating
situations. To support changing requirements during process control, you can
configure the following measures, which provide the operator with situationspecific purposeful help:
screen-dependent soft keys,
global function keys and
user-defined screen hierarchies.
11.1
Branching by Means of Soft Keys and Function Keys
Soft keys:
function keys with
a tag assignment
You can assign function calls to the function keys on the OP7 and the OP17.
We distinguish in this instance between local and global assignment. Global
means that the assignment applies to the entire configuration. Local means
that the assignment applies to one screen entry only. This makes it possible
for the operator to initiate functions as and when required by the situation.
When the assignment of function keys may vary from screen entry to screen
entry, the keys are referred to as soft keys.
The following keys can be assigned as soft keys on the different devices:
OP7
The two tiers of keys F1 to F4 and K1 to K4 of the function keyboard
may be configured both as soft keys and global function keys.
OP17
The two tiers of keys F1 to F8 and K1 to K8 of the function keyboard
may be configured both as soft keys and global function keys.
Function keys K9 to K16 can be assigned only globally.
While configuring soft keys, you must make sure that function calls which
are required to be permanently available, i.e. also during screen editing, are
not assigned to keys which you intended to be soft keys.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99

Assignments of
function keys and
soft keys
You can assign the following functions to function keys and soft keys:
branch to message level,
select screen,
initiate a print job,
display directory,
modify parameters in online mode.
Password level
assignment
A password level may be assigned to a function key or a soft key. This means
that you can make functions, such as ”Modify parameters in online mode”,
available only to authorized persons.
Special feature
with function keys
If a function can be called in a given situation by means of a specific function key, the LED assigned to the function key can be turned on by the PLC.
in this manner.
OP7
Function keys K1 to K4 are all provided with a green LED.
OP17
Function keys K1 to K16 are all provided with a two-color LED
(red/green).
Convenient operator prompting can be implemented by means of the option
of activating the LEDs on function keys (refer to Chapter 13).
Special feature
with soft keys
A bit can be configured in a tag for every soft key. This insures that a bit is
set in the PLC when a soft key is pressed. In this instance, the OP always
transfers the whole tag to the PLC instead of the individual bits and overwrites the information it contains.
When the key is released or upon a change of display which modifies softkey assignment, the bit is reset.

Self-Defined Screen Hierarchy
Defining the
screen hierarchy
The screen hierarchy can be adapted to system-specific requirements and be
modified either in part or in whole. Screens can be removed or added.
Screens can be linked together in random order. The design, sequence of the
link, inclusion in the screen directory and the relevant cross-jump destinations are defined during configuration with ProTool.
Branching using
soft keys and
cross-jump
destinations
You branch between the different screens by means of soft keys and configured cross-jump destinations. Branching from entries of different screens to
one and the same screen is possible (figure 11-1). Cross-jumps are not restricted to screen level, but can branch to the message level too.
Defining the start
screen
Another feature that is configured is the picture you want to have displayed
on the OP as your start screen.
Figure 11-1 Principle of a Screen Hierarchy
An overview is presented below, with reference to an example, of the design
of a screen hierarchy. Detailed information on configuration will be found in

Example
The OP is used to operate and monitor a system for producing and bottling
different fruit juices. The system consists basically of a mixing unit and a
bottling machine.
Mixing unit
The ingredients for the fruit juices are contained in three tanks. Depending on
the juice that you wish to manufacture, ingredients are mixed in certain ratios.
Bottling machine
After it has been mixed, the fruit juice flows into the bottling tank after a
valve has been opened and then bottled in the correct quantities. The bottles
are conveyed on a belt. Before being filled, they are checked for breakages
After they have been filled, the bottles are capped, labeled and transferred to
pallets.
The configured basic screen could look – for example, on the OP7 display –
like the one shown in figure 11-2. It consists of static text only.

Schedulers (OP17 only)
Definition
12
Depending on the configuration, you can specify so-called schedulers for the
OP17. A scheduler is a regularly recurring point in time (i.e., hourly, daily,
weekly, annually) at which a certain function is to be executed. Up to 48
schedulers and their corresponding functions can be configured
A scheduler is contained in a screen entry where it can be entered, changed
or deactivated when the screen is displayed.
When a scheduler time is reached, the configured bit is set in the interface
area of the PLC.
See User’s Guide Communication for detailed information on the interface
area of the PLC.

Controlling the OP from the PLC
13
Common data
areas
The OP and the application program communicate with each other by alternately reading from and writing to the data areas in the memory of the PLC.
Thus the PLC and the OP can make each other execute different actions by
evaluating data areas.
PLC jobs
PLC jobs are functions that are initiated on the OP – for example, selecting
screens, printing screens, transferring the date and time from the OP to the
PLC. Jobs are stored with a job number and parameters on the PLC.
The PLC, for example, can call a screen on the OP to draw the operator’s
attention to a particular condition or to the fact that inputs are required.
You will find a complete list of all the PLC jobs with their parameters and a
description of all the data user areas that have to be configured on the PLC in
the Communication User’s Manual.
LED control
The LEDs on the function keys of the OP can be driven from within the PLC.
This means it is possible to signal to the operator by means of a lit key LED
that it is advisable to press a specific key in a certain situation.
For LED control, it is necessary to create an LED image on the PLC. In the
configuration, two bits are assigned to every LED in the LED image area.
These two bits can be used to implement four different LED states:
Evaluating the
screen number
OP7
Off, Permanently On, Low-Speed Flashing, High-Speed Flashing.
OP17
Off, Green Permanently On, Red Permanently On, Red Flashing.
The OP stores information about the object type called in the screen number
area of the PLC. Thus it is possible for information about the current display
contents of the OP to be transferred to the application program on the PLC
and, from there, for certain reactions to be initiated – for example, calling
another screen.
Equipment Manual OP7, OP17
Release 04/99
13-1
Function keyboard
image
With pressing a function key, it can be used to set a bit on the PLC, where it
is evaluated by the application program.
For this, you must have created the necessary data area on the PLC for the
keyboard image and have specified the appropriate area pointer in the configuration for assigning the key to a bit.
At most, the activation of two simultaneously pressed keys can be
transferred.
System keyboard
image
A bit is permanently assigned to every key on the system key board – apart
from the arrow keys – in the data area for system keyboard bits. The bit remains set for as long as the corresponding key is pressed. The bit is reset
when you release the key.
Owing to the evaluation of this data area, the operator’s attention can be
drawn to the wrong operation of a key – for example, by means of an error
message.
Date and time
Transfer of date and time can be initiated from the OP by means of a PLC job
in order to synchronize the OP and PLC.
PLC OP
acknowledgment
area
By creating a suitable data area, it is possible for alarm messages to be
acknowledged by the PLC instead of on the OP.

Installation
Mounting location
and conditions
Operator Panels OP7 and OP17 are suitable for fitting into control cabinets
and consoles.
Before you install an OP, you must cut out a section of the front panel (mounting cutout) (see chapter 16). The front panel must not be thicker than 6 mm.
No other drilled holes are required for mounting.
You will find mounting depth details in chapter 16.
Make sure at the location where you plan to install the OP that there is a
clearance of at least 50 mm beneath its housing to accommodate protruding
connectors.
!
Caution
The OP must be brought to room temperature before it is commissioned.
In the event of moisture condensation, do not turn on the OP until it is
absolutely dry.
The OP was subjected to function testing before being supplied to you.
Should a fault occur for all that, please enclose a precise description of
the fault on returning the OP.
To prevent the OP from overheating in operation,
– the device must not be exposed to direct sunlight (this simultaneously
prevents fading of the foil front) and
– the ventilation slits in the device housing must remain free after
mounting.
On opening the panel, certain parts of the system become accessible that
may conduct hazardous voltage.
Degree of
protection
The IP65 degree of protection on the front panel can be insured only when
the gasket on the front panel of the OP fits properly.
Prior to
installation
Should you wish to modify the labels on the function keys, replace the
labeling strips before you install the OP. You will find tips on how to replace
labeling strips in section 16.3.

to the power supply,
to the configuring computer (PC or programming unit),
to the PLC.
The electrical connection to the configuration computer is required only to
download the firmware and configuration.
Interference-proof
hardware design
!
The basis for interference-free operation is interference-proof hardware
design of the PLC in accordance with EMC guidelines and the use of
interference-proof cables. The guidelines for interference-proof design of
your PLCs also apply accordingly for installation of the OP.
Caution
Use only shielded cable for all signal connections.
Screw down or lock all plug connections.
Do not install signal lines in the same cable ducts as high voltage lines.
Siemens AG accepts no responsibility whatsoever for malfunctions and
damage arising from the use of self-made cables or cables from other
manufacturers.
Polarity reversal
protection
The OPs have polarity reversal protection. This does not work if there is already a link to another unit via an RS232 interface. For this reason, always
proceed as follows whenever commissioning the OP:
1. Connect the power supply.
2. Switch on the OP. If the OP does not run up, swap over the connections
because their polarity is reversed.
3. Once the OP has run up, connect the configuration computer or I/O device.

Constraints in
loop-through
mode
Print functions of the looped-through OP cannot be used.
The OP does not perform life-bit monitoring, i.e. it cannot detect whether
the PLC is in Stop mode, for example. Life-bit monitoring continues to be
performed on the PLC.
System performance may deteriorate due to higher loading of the interface to the PLC.
Particularities for
connection of a PU
If PU status functions are activated (message on PU: ”Status processing in
progress ” – for example, for STATUS VAR, FORCE VAR),
the following system message is displayed on the Operator Panel
”$340 Status in progress, loop- through mode”,
the OP can no longer be operated,
communication between the OP and the PLC is stopped. There is therefore little sense in evaluating error number 115 of the standard FB on the
PLC in this particular instance.
Upon termination of status functions by means of the ESC key on the PU, OP
functions are resumed.
If ”Apply” is pressed once only with Force VAR after a value has been
entered, the value you entered is transferred to the PLC, and the status
function of the PU is still not active. This value (for example, a message bit
or an actual value) can still be read by the looped-through OP and processed
(for example, display of the associated message or the actual value). Not
until ”Apply” is pressed a second time is the PU status function activated.

If the OP is connected to the PLC through a TTY or RS232 interface, a
Y cable is required for simultaneous operation of a printer. The PLC and
printer, in this case, are operated with physically different interfaces.
For attaching Siemens printers, there are standard cables available (refer to
Catalog No. ST80.1). For other printers, you have to use the cables supplied
or specially manufactured ones.
You will find the pin assignments of the plug connectors in appendix D of
this manual.

Before
commissioning
!
Before commissioning the OP, take note of the following:
Caution
With the SIMATIC S5, compression of the internal program memory of
the PLC (PU ”Compress” function, integrated COMPR FB) is not allowed when an OP is connected. Compression modifies the absolute addresses of the blocks in the program memory. As the OP reads the address list only during start-up, it does not detect any address modifications and accesses the wrong memory areas.
If compression is inevitable during routine operation, turn off the OP
prior to compression.
Do not disconnect while circuit is live unless location is known to be
nonhazardous.

Procedure
Initial commissioning
Initial commissioning comprises loading the firmware required to enable the
OP to function and the configuration onto the OP. You do this as follows:
Step
Procedure
1
Switch on the OP’s power supply. 1)
Since a configuration has not yet been loaded at this point in
time, the OP automatically switches to download mode and waits
for data to be downloaded from the configuration computer
(PC/PU).
You are not able to operate the OP in this mode.
2
Using a suitable standard cable, connect the configuration computer to the interface of the OP:
IF1A for OP7
IF2 for OP17
3
Start the download operation to the OP on the PC or PU.
The OP checks the link to the PC or PU. If a link is not available
or if it is not functioning properly, the OP issues a corresponding
error message.
If the link is in order, downloading of the configuration from the
PC or PU is initiated to the OP.
As long as data are not being downloaded to the OP, you
can cancel Download mode by pressing
1)
ESC
Switch on the power supply before you connect the OP to the configuration computer.
If you don’t, the internal polarity reversal protection function of the OP can be rendered
ineffective is the polarity of the power supply is reversed.
Note
Please refer to the ProTool/Lite User’s Guide for the ProTool settings
required for downloading.
Once the configuration has been successfully downloaded, the OP runs up
again. If a start screen has been defined in the configuration, it is opened. If a
start screen has not been defined, the OP displays the standby message.

There are two ways to switch the OP to download mode:
While normal operation is in progress
By calling the standard screen System settings OpMode Download.
If necessary, enter the password for the required password
level beforehand.
During the startup phase of the OP
When switching on the power supply of the OP, press these
three keys at the same time.
ESC
+
+
This key combination (”overall reset”) deletes the configuration memory.
The OP then switches to download mode and waits for data to
be downloaded from the PC/PU.
4
Start the download operation to the OP on the PC or PU. The OP
checks the link to the PC or PU. If a link is not available or if it
is not functioning properly, the OP issues a corresponding error
message.
If the link is in order, downloading of the configuration from the
PC or PU is initiated to the OP. In doing so, the present configuration on the OP is overwritten by the new one.
As long as data are not being transferred between the PC/PU and
the OP, you can cancel Download mode by pressing
ESC
Once the configuration has been successfully downloaded, the OP runs up
again. If a start screen has been defined in the configuration, it is opened. If a
start screen has not been defined, the OP displays the standby message.
Fault diagnosis
Any fault occurring during commissioning or in operation is normally displayed by means of an error message on the display of the OP.
You will find an overview of the most important system messages together
with notes on troubleshooting in an appendix to this manual.

Labeling of the Function Keys
Situation
on delivery
Replacing labeling
strips
The function keys of the OP7 and OP17 are labeled as follows when delivered:
– OP7:
F1 to F4 and
K1 to K4.
– OP17:
F1 to F8,
K1 to K8 and
K9 to K16.
All the function keys are labeled by means of labeling strips, which are inserted in the keyboard from the rear of the OP. For this purpose, the OP has
been provided with an easy-to-use feed-in device. By replacing the labeling
strips, you are in a position to customize the function keys on your OP for a
given system.
Two labeling strips are provided for the OP7 and three for the OP17. Labeling strips should be replaced only when the OP has been disassembled. To
replace labeling strips, proceed as follows:
1. Remove from the OP the labeling strips you wish to replace.
2. Insert the new strips from the rear of the OP into the corresponding slits
located on the side of the OP.
Figure 16-3 illustrates, by way of an example, how to replace labeling strips
on an OP7.

Note
Take note of the following points before you insert labeling strips:
Labeling on strips must be smudge-proof before they can be inserted. If a
keyboard overlay is soiled on the inside, it cannot be cleaned and has to
be returned to the manufacturer for replacement.
Protect the labeled side with transparent adhesive tape. In this way, you
prevent the labeling from being worn out prematurely.
Making labeling
strips
Make labeling strips from transparent foil so that the LEDs on function keys
remain visible. Use a printer or a smudge-proof pen to label the foil. Cut
strips as shown in the examples illustrated in figures 16-4 (OP17) and 16-5
(OP7).
