The Siemens Simocode Pro Motor Management Relay is the ultimate way to provide protection, monitoring, and control over low voltage motors. Pair that with the capabilities of TIA Portal and it provides the user with a powerful platform to manage motors. Setting up a Simocode can be achieved inside TIA Portal the same way that other devices are incorporated.
Inside TIA Portal, there is an optional wizard to walk the user through the commissioning process. Once inside the wizard, several options exist to define the type of application that will be utilized. These include areas such as Overload, Circuit Breaker, and type of starters.
Once the application has been selected, another optional wizard is prompted to help select proper parameters. Inside the parameter wizard the different parameters and settings can be changed for the Simocode to match the application at hand. One important section is the Motor Protection settings where the overload protections can be set.
Once the wizards have been finished, the Simocode integrates the same way in TIA Portal as other devices. The network structure is defined with the proper topology.
The Simocode can have different of modules added for more functionality including I/O, Safety I/O, Temperature, Ground Fault, and different types of displays. Traces can also be set up using TIA as a valuable troubleshooting tool.
With TIA Portal and Simocode controlling, and monitoring of a low voltage motor is a breeze. The easy setup and familiarity within Portal and provided wizards ensure that adequate protections will be set up for the application.
