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 on linux and/or windows.
  • PLCs
    • Schneider: Premium, Quantum, M340, M580.
    • Siemens: S7-300, S7-400, S7-1500.
    • Codesys: Somachine and TwinCat*.
  • Local Operator Panels
    • Siemens Simatic Touch Panels (for usage both with Schneider and Siemens PLCs).
    • Schneider Magelis*.
  • Field layer
    • Any I/O modules compatible with Siemens and Scheneider PLCs.
    • Supported fieldbuses: Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP.
