UNICOS CPC Architecture

The standard architecture of UNICOS CPC is based in industrial components in both the supervision and control layers. The following picture illustrate this architecture (within CERN infrastructure):

The available components are:

  • Supervision
    • WinCC OA (PVSS) on linux and/or windows machines
    • Labview (under development)
  • PLCs
    • Schneider: Premium, Quantum and M340
    • Siemens: S7-300 and S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500 (under development)
    • Codesys: Somachine and TwinCat*
  • Local touch panels
    • Siemens Simatic panels with WinCC Flexible  (for usage both with Schneider and Siemens PLCs)
    • Schneider Magelis*
  • Field layer
    • Any I/O modules compatible with the Siemens and Scheneider PLCs including fieldbuses (e.g. Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP,...)
