||The first step for setting the TS Adapter IE (TSA-IE) for use between a telephone network and an Ethernet network is to set up the IP address. Open the dialog box "Options > Set TS Adapter IE IP Parameter" in TeleService.
||Now assign the required IP address and subnet mask (as shown in Fig. 02).
||After assigning the IP address you can configure the TS Adapter IE. There are now two interfaces available for this:
||Both methods permit access to the same settings. You must first log on as administrator to be able to assign the parameters.|
||Fig. 05 shows the entry of the IP address for the internal and external modems for routing the data from a telephone line and from the Industrial Ethernet. The IP addresses must be changed so that they are compatible with the subnet which is to be used for the connection. Only the internal modem is used in this example and so only this IP address is set.
||You must then select the SIMATIC protocols that TSA-IE supports. For teleservicing an HMI you must activate the "S7 - communication", "Sm@rtAccess" and/or "Sm@rtService" checkboxes. Similarly, these SIMATIC protocols are required for remote monitoring of a CPU. Please note that the "Sm@rt" protocols require licenses.
||Switch to the "Internet protocols" tab in order to select all the Internet protocols which are to be supported by TSA-IE.
||In the "Expert Mode" tab you can configure the port ranges which can be accessed through the firewall.
The settings in the steps (6-8) are for configuring an incoming call if "Incoming calls" is selected in the window on the left. Select "Outgoing calls" for outgoing calls. With these few steps you have completed the configuration of your TSA-IE. Now, as soon as the telephone line is connected to the TSA-IE and there is a connection point to the Ethernet network, you can set up the connection to the local Ethernet network via a remote modem.
||All you have to do now is set the connection to "Sm@rt" in your WinCC flexible project (see Fig. 09, red box). This setting is conducted in the development environment for WinCC flexible and is necessary for using "Sm@rt" in WinCC flexible.
||You are now ready to set up a connection to the HMI. But first we will explain how to set up the network function for a CPU (e.g. 319 PN/DP) in order to fully demonstrate the capabilities of a TSA-IE. The CPU must be Internet-ready, have a PROFINET connection and at least firmware version V2.5.
||Before downloading this configuration to the CPU, it should be mentioned that you can also assign variable tables (VAT). In order to monitor the VAT you must go to the VAT Properties dialog box, open the "General - Part 2" tab and enter "VATtoWEB" under Family.
Now save and compile the project and the associated hardware, and upload it to the CPU. However, beforehand, connect all the devices to the Ethernet and the TSA-IE to the telephone line.
||Next, set up a connection from the modem on the requested target computer to the modem on your TSA-IE. The connection can be set up as done in a factory (Fig. 12).
Another option is to define the settings shown in Fig. 13.
||When the TSA-IE goes online you can access the web server of the CPU or HMI without any problems. The CPU web server is accessed by entering the IP address of the CPU in the address bar of the Internet Explorer. You can now access various diagnostics websites, as well as images of the start page (Fig. 14), the diagnostic buffer (Fig. 15), the CPU messages (Fig. 16) and the configured VAT (Fig. 17).
Accessing the HMI diagnostics data is similar to accessing the CPU diagnostics data.
||Fig. 18 shows the start page of the HMI web server. This screenshot contains the versions and status.
||Fig. 19 "Remote Control" shows how to display and operate the plant visualization via the remote control of the HMI.
||As with Remote Control, you can also import and export recipe data and password lists.
||You can track system messages and transfer data between the HMI and the local PC.
||Just as with "Remote Control" via Industrial Ethernet, you can also use the Sm@rtservice viewer. This is provided you have WinCC flexible installed. You must start the "Sm@rtService" viewer and enter the IP address in the HMI.
You are then prompted to enter the Administrator password to have access to the HMI.
||Once you have entered the correct password and the connection to the HMI is set up, you can remotely control the HMI via your local computer.
