Part number:

Description
You can easily migrate a project with recipes from WinCC flexible to WinCC (TIA Portal). However, recipe data of a WinCC flexible configuration is often changed after downloading to the panel. How can you import these modified recipe data records into a WinCC (TIA Portal) project?

Note
The procedure described in the following cannot be implemented with Basic Panels of the first generation nor with operator panels OP 77A, OP 177A and TP 177A (Portrait). With these devices you should use the "ProSave" tool which is on your WinCC flexible Installation DVD and is also available for downloading in Entry ID 10347815 (see here also Importing and exporting recipe data records in the WinCC Advanced V13.0 System Manual, Entry ID 91479053).

Instructions
Export the recipe data from the panel into a CSV file. There are two options for this:

Use one of the two options and import the exported CSV data records into WinCC (TIA Portal):

Now the recipe data records are incorporated in your WinCC (TIA Portal) project.

System function "ExportDataRecords"

  1. In your WinCC flexible project you link the system function "ExportDataRecords" to an event, clicking a button, for example.


    Fig. 01

    Specify the name of the recipe and the name or number of the recipe data record to be saved, and select a suitable storage location, a USB stick, for example.

    Note
    Specify "0" as the data record number to store all the data records of a recipe.
     
  2. After project download the event (clicking a button, for example) triggers each time storage of the current recipe data in the specified storage location.

Miniweb on the panel

Note
The HTML pages must be activated on your panel for this procedure. The settings for this are in the WinCC flexible Project View under "Device Settings > Device Settings > Runtime Services".

  1. Use your browser to establish a connection to the Miniweb of the panel and log on with user name and password.

    Note
    The default administrator name is "Administrator", the associated password is "100".
     
  2. Switch to the "Control Functions" page.


    Fig. 02
     
  3. Select the "Export recipes" function.
    You see a list of the configured recipes.
     
  4. Right-click a recipe and select the "Save Target As..." item in the pop-up menu that opens (or the corresponding browser command) to store the CSV file on your local computer.


    Fig. 03
  5. To view the recipe data records without storing them you simple click a recipe.

Import of recipe data into WinCC (TIA Portal)

  1. Open the "Recipes" working area in WinCC (TIA Portal).
     
  2. Select the recipe whose data records you want to import and click the "Import recipe data records" button.


    Fig. 04
     
  3. In the dialog that opens you select the recipe file from which you want to import data.


    Fig. 05
     
  4. Confirm with "Import".
    Now the recipe data records are imported.

Note
The corresponding recipe must already have been created in WinCC (TIA Portal) to be able to import recipe data records.

Which settings should be made in WinCC (TIA Portal) prior to copying an HMI screen into another HMI operator panel?Go to beginning
Part number:

Task
You have configured an MP 277 Touch with multiple screens. A TP1200 Comfort Panel is to be added to this configuration.
The screens of the MP 277 Touch are to be adopted by the new operator panel.

WinCC (TIA Portal) provides the option of using "Drag & Drop" or "Copy & Paste" to transfer screens from one operator panel into another.

Prior to copying you should check the settings for resizing screens and objects. This resizing is important in particular when the operator panels have different display resolutions.
In this example, the MP 277 Touch has a resolution of 640 x 480 and the TP1200 Comfort a resolution of 1280 x 800.

In advance you can define how the contents of the project screens are tp be resized and applied upon transfer.
For this, in WinCC (TIA Portal), you select the menu command "Options > Settings".
Under the "Visualization > Resize screen" item you can define various options (see figure below).


Fig. 01

A detailed description of the effect of the different settings on the operator panel is given in the document "Migration guidelines for Comfort Panels", section 3.3 (Change Screen from 4:3 to Wide Screen).

How can you transfer global libraries from WinCC flexible to WinCC (TIA Portal)?Go to beginning
Part number:

Description
Unlike a project-specific WinCC flexible library, you cannot migrate global libraries directly from WinCC flexible to WinCC (TIA Portal).

Information on the topic of libraries:

  • Project library
    The project library is stored together with the project in which it was created. In this way a project library is migrated automatically to WinCC (TIA Portal) with the project created.
  • Global library
    The global library is not stored with the project created.
    The system library supplied is in the installation directory of WinCC flexible, for example. Own libraries are stored under "Documents and Settings", for example, if the default path is used. In this way a global library is not migrated automatically to WinCC (TIA Portal) with the WinCC flexible configuration.

Proceed as follows to transfer a global WinCC flexible library to WinCC (TIA Portal).

Function description
A new MP 277 Touch project was created for this procedure. You can also use an existing WinCC flexible configuration. The operator panel you use must support the objects etc. used in the global library.

Brief description

  • Open the global library in which the objects are located and which you wish to transfer to WinCC (TIA Portal).
  • Insert all the required objects into an existing picture or pictures.
  • Migrate the WinCC flexible configuration to WinCC (TIA Portal).
  • Open the migrated project in WinCC (TIA Portal).
  • Open the global library of WinCC (TIA Portal).
  • Insert the objects in the pictures into the global library of
    WinCC (TIA Portal).
No. Description of functions (detail)
1 Create a new project
An "MP 277 Touch" project was created for this procedure. No other functions or the like are required apart from the default "Home Page".
2

Open global library of WinCC flexible

  • In the menu bar you select the fifth icon: "Opens a library" (Fig. 01).
  • The "Global Library" window opens.


Fig. 01

Select global libraries

  • Insert the desired global library in the "Open global library" window.
    In this example we have selected the "Graphics" library in the "System Libraries" folder.


Fig. 02

Select objects

  • Mark an object in the global library selected (Fig. 03) and drag-and-drop it into the screen that opens (Fig. 04).


Fig. 03

Inserted objects (Fig. 04).


Fig. 04

  • Finally you save the whole configuration.
3 Migrate the project to WinCC (TIA Portal)
Open the WinCC (TIA Portal) and migrate the WinCC flexible configuration.

A description of how to migrate a WinCC flexible project to WinCC (TIA Portal) is available in the manual in Entry ID 53385672 (Chapter 4).

4 Create new global library in WinCC (TIA Portal)
  • Open the migrated project in WinCC (TIA Portal).
  • Open the "Libraries" task card.
  • Select the "Global libraries" palette and click the first icon, "Create new global library", to create a new global library (Fig. 05).
  • A dialog box opens.
    Here you enter a name and the storage path for the global library just created.
    The new global library is called "WinCC flexible Objects" in this example.


Fig. 05

Copy objects from the picture(s) into the global library

  • Open the picture with the objects from the WinCC flexible library.
  • Drag-and-drop the separate objects into the global library
    "WinCC flexible Objects > Master copies" (Fig. 06).
    Note
    You can also mark multiple objects and copy them into the global library using drag-and-drop. These are then grouped together as "one" object.


Fig. 06

Save the global library

  • Click the third icon, "Save the changes to the library",
    to save the changes/extension (Fig. 07).


Fig. 07

This completes the migration of a global WinCC flexible library to WinCC (TIA Portal).
