Forcing Function
The forcing function provides a user interface for xing variables of input and output channels of input/output modules and variables within the application logic to constant values (variable locking), changing variable values forcefully (variable value setting) for the purposes of maintenance of an SCS and debugging of applications. Additionally, this function uses the SYS_FORCE function block to enable monitoring of the lock status within the application logic and forceful cancellation of the lock. Execute the forcing function in the following windows: I/O Lock window Multi-Language Editor (FBD) Multi-Language Editor (LD) Dictionary View

IMPORTANT
To execute the forcing function, it is necessary to set the SCS security level to Level 1 or 0.

This chapter describes the variable locking function and the variable value setting function, as well as how to operate the I/O Lock window.

Overview of the Forcing Function


The forcing function consists of the locking function and the variable setting function. The forcing function is used to lock a variable and then set its value. Locking Function This is a function to x (lock) the values of input/output variables and internal variables of the application logic to constant values, regardless of input values from the actual input devices and logic output operation results. Variables can be xed for each input/output module. If an input/output variable is xed, errors in the corresponding channel of the input/output device are not transmitted to the logic. Diagnostic information messages that notify errors are generated, however. Note that some system function blocks detect errors without being inuenced by locking. Variable Setting Function This is a function to set values for input/output variables and internal variables of the application logic. If a value is set for a locked variable, the value is xed to the set value. Setting values for input variables and internal variables that are not locked is meaningless as the values are overwritten with input from actual input devices and the results of logic operations. An error occurs if it is attempted to set values for unlocked output variables.

IMPORTANT
The forcing function can be used for both target tests and virtual tests. Note that the I/O Lock window cannot be called in virtual tests because input/output modules are not connected.

Security of the Forcing Function


The forcing function uses the following security measures.

SCS Security Levels


The forcing function can only be executed if the SCS security level is Level 1 or 0.

Alarm Notication on Duration of Variable Lock Status


If the lock status of one or more variables persists longer than the time specied by the SYS_ FORCE function block, this fact is notied as a diagnostic information message.

Diagnostic Information Message Notication on the Number of Locked Variables


If the number of variables being locked exceeds the count specied by the SYS_FORCE function block, this fact is notied as a diagnostic information message.

Forced Cancellation of All Locks


The SYS_FORCE function block can be used to cancel the lock status of all variables in an SCS in a batch. It is thus possible to create applications that can forcefully cancel locked conditions in emergencies, such as when an SENG is faulty and SCS Manager cannot be used.

For more information about SYS_FORCE, see the following: C9.2, SYS_FORCE (Management of Forcing Function) of the Safety Control Stations (IM 32S03B1001E)

Reminder of Lock Cancellation with SCS Manager


When terminating a target test in SCS Manager, or when quitting SCS Manager during a target test, a conrmation dialog box prompting the user to conrm cancellation of the lock status appears if any of the variables are still locked.

Differences between Forcing and Overriding


In addition to the forcing function in SCS Manager, the overriding function is provided for setting variable values from an HIS in an environment integrating CS 3000. The differences between forcing and overriding are explained below.

The forcing function is used in SCS maintenance and application debugging. In debugging of applications, the forcing function is used for the following purposes: Setting variable values for debugging the application logic Locking input/output modules Locking input/output channels for wiring tests In SCS maintenance, the forcing function is used for the following purposes: Locking input/output variables for each input/output module if the required input/output module is not available or the eld wiring has not been completed Locking input/output variables for each input/output module when channels of an input/output module are faulty and have to be replaced Locking input/output modules to prevent from accidental trip during online modication Locking input/output channels for maintenance Locking input/output channels to prevent them from accidental trip during online modication of application logic The forcing function can be used for both target tests and virtual tests. Note that the I/O Lock window cannot be called in virtual tests because input/output modules are not connected.

Applications of the Forcing Function

Debugging Applications
The forcing function is used for the following purposes after creating an application, from the start of debugging until the completion of all wirings. Setting variable values for the purpose of debugging the application logic Locking input/output modules Locking input/output channels for the purpose of wiring tests

Setting Variable Values for the Purpose of Debugging Application Logic


It is possible to change the execution conditions of the application logic by locking and changing values of input variables and internal variables, thereby facilitating debugging.

Locking Input/Output Modules


Variables can be locked for each input/output module if the required input/output module is not available or the eld wiring has not been completed, thereby preventing the application logic from being inuenced by input data and data status changes of input/output channels. It is also possible to lock variables of multiple input/output modules in a batch.

Locking Input/Output Channels for the Purpose of Wiring Tests


By locking input variables, it is possible to conduct wiring tests on the input side (eld wiring/device) without transmitting changes of values of the input channels and conditions on the input side to the logic side. The actual input values can be checked in the I/O Lock window. Similarly, by locking output variables, it is possible to conduct wiring tests on the output side without transmitting changes made to the values of the output channels from the logic to the logic side. Thus, the operation on the output side can be checked by changing the values of output variables.

Utilization of the Forcing Function during SCS Maintenance


The forcing function can be used for the following purposes, after all wiring is completed but before the start of actual operation, as well as during maintenance after starting the actual operation in the eld. Disconnection of input/output modules Maintenance of input/output channels

Disconnection of Input/Output Modules


Prevention of Inadvertent Tripping when Replacing a Faulty Module
If a channel of an input module in a single conguration fails, and the replacement of the input module is required, the forcing function can be used to x input values of all channels of the input module to the current values to prevent inadvertent tripping from occurring. Similarly, if a channel of an output module in a single conguration fails, and the replacement of the output module is required, the forcing function can be used to x the states of all channels of the output module to the current values to prevent inadvertent tripping from occurring in other output modules that refer to this channel.

Prevention of Inadvertent Tripping due to Online Modication


When changing the application logic or input/output modules online, the forcing function can be used to x output values of all channels of output modules that may be inuenced by changes to the current values in order to prevent inadvertent tripping. When changing the settings of an input/output module online, the forcing function can be used to x the input/output values of all channels of the corresponding input/output module to the current values in order to prevent inadvertent tripping mistakes.

IMPORTANT
In online modications of output modules, the outputs from all channels of the target output module become 0 and their status become BAD regardless of whether or not they are locked. It is necessary to bypass the eld control signals and separate them from the output modules so as to prevent from plant shutdown. When an output module is undergoing online-change, if the channel status of the module is used as a reference by another output module that is not undergoing the online change, the channel of another output module may mistakenly generate a trip signal. To prevent from this phenomenon, the output modules linked to the online-changed module should be locked during online maintenance.

Maintenance of Input/Output Channels


When performing maintenance on input/output channels, the forcing function can be used to x the values of the corresponding channels so as to prevent adverse effect on the operation of other applications.

2-7

2.2

It is possible to x (lock) values of input/output variables and internal variables (variables other than input/output variables) of the application logic to constant values, regardless of the input values from the actual input devices and application operation results. This section describes the behaviour of the input variables, the output variables and the internal variables when they are locked, as well as the behaviour of the system function blocks during locking.

Variable Locking

Overview of Variable Locking


All variables of the application logic have two values: a value written from the input side and a value read from the output side. Normally, the value on the output side is constantly overwritten with the value on the input side during the execution of the application logic. For this reason, the value written to the variable and the value read from the variable match each other. The locking function is a function used to stop overwriting values on the output side with values on the input side. As a result, the values maintained on the output side are used regardless of the values written to the variables from the input side.
Variable Variable

Figure Overview of the Locking Function

In the case of an input variable, the value on the input side is input from an input channel and is called physical data. The value of an input variable on the output side is read by the application logic and is called logical data. An input variable contains input data and data status. In the case of an output variable, the value of the input side is input from the result of application logic processing and is called logical data. The value of the output side of an output variable is output to an output channel and is called physical data. An output variable also contains output data and data status, in the same way as an input variable.

IMPORTANT
When unlocking input/output variables, make sure to check the logical data and physical data of input/output data and data status. Check that there will be no adverse effects of unlocking on the system, such as a value changing abruptly after canceling the lock, causing inadvertent tripping. While the forcing function is executed, the systems safety functions are disabled. If you use the forcing function for the purpose of maintenance after starting the actual operation, quit the forcing function immediately after the completion of system maintenance and enable the systems safety functions so that they operate normally. At the completion of a target test or when quitting SCS Manager during a target test, a dialog box appears to call attention to locked variables. In this case, display a list of the locked variables using the I/O Lock window or other means and cancel the lock status of these variables.

For more information about variable value setting, see the following: 2.3, Variable Value Setting

Unlocking Input Variables


When the lock status of an input variable is canceled, the logical data will be overwritten with the value of the physical data again. Since input data values used by the application logic may change abruptly or the data status may change, caution must be exercised not to adversely inuence the operation of the application. For this reason, before canceling a lock, make sure to check that input data and data status match for physical data and logical data; if they are different, make sure that there will be no adverse effect on the application when unlocking.

Operations at Input Channel Errors


While an input variable is locked, the data status of the input channel is disconnected. For this reason, even if an error occurs in the channel, the error cannot be detected by observing the data status of the input variable. Note that a diagnostic information message is notied at failure of the channel as well as its recovery from an error, regardless of whether or not the input channel is locked.

If an input variable is locked or unlocked, the operation performed and the results of the operation are notied as a diagnostic information message.

Figure Locking Output Variables

If an output variable is locked, its values are xed as follows. As for the output data, its physical data will no longer be overwritten with the value of the logical data. The value of the physical data matches the value of the logical data at the time of locking. As for the data status, the logical data status will no longer be overwritten with the value of the physical data status. The value of the logical data status matches the value of the physical data status at the time of locking.

Unlocking Output Variables


When the lock status of an output variable is canceled, the physical data will be overwritten with the value of the logical data again for the output data, and the logical data status will be overwritten with the value of the physical data status again. When the lock status is canceled, the output data values overwritten with the application logic may change or the data status used in the application logic may change. Thus, caution must be exercised not to adversely inuence the output to the eld and the operation of the application. For this reason, before releasing a lock, make sure that the output data and data status of the physical data and logical data are consistent; if they are not, make sure that there will be no affect to the applications when releasing the lock.

Operations at Output Channel Errors


While an output variable is locked, the data status of the output channel is disconnected. For this reason, even if an error occurs in the channel, the error cannot be detected by observing the data status of the output variable. Note that a diagnostic information message is notied at the time of failure of the channel as well as its recovery from an error, regardless of whether or not the output channel is locked.

It is possible to set values for input/output variables and internal variables while they are locked. Values of variables can be set in the I/O Lock window, Multi-Language Editor and Dictionary View. If a value is set for a variable while it is locked, the value is xed to the set value. When changing a value for a variable while it is not locked, error will occur and the value cannot be changed. This section describes operations performed when a value is set for each type of variables, namely, input variable, output variable and internal variable.

If an error occurs in an output channel, the physical data of output data is xed to the fail-safe value dened in Output Value in Detecting Error of the DO channel in I/O Parameter Builder and placed in the output disabled status. For this reason, if you attempt to lock an erroneous output channel and set a value for the physical data using the variable setting function, the value will be overwritten with the fail-safe value. Once the output channel recovers to normal, a value can be set for the physical data.

Locking and unlocking one input/output channel Perform this operation to conduct wiring tests. Setting variable values Other than the operations above, forcing operations can be performed for individual variables of all variables including internal variables from Dictionary View. In addition, MultiLanguage Editor allows performing forcing operations for each variable used in the FBD and LD. Note that the lock status cannot be released from Multi-Language Editor since Multi-Language Editor cannot handle the data status. User can use Dictionary View to unlock the variables after checking the data status. A variable locked in a certain window can be unlocked in another window. Similarly, a variable locked in an SENG can be unlocked in another SENG at different timing. Use the forcing function in tests of application logic.

Hardware Conguration Tree View


This view displays the hardware conguration of a single SCS in tree format. The upper part of the tree view shows the status of the V net. Each CPU node is displayed with its CPU modules, power supply modules and input/output modules. If there are any diagnostic information messages generated for any hardware components displayed in tree format, a diagnostic information mark is displayed at the left of each component. Since diagnostic information marks are displayed on the alarm layer, if an error is detected in an input/output module, the diagnostic information marks are also displayed for its upper components, e.g., I/O node and SCS. This way, the user can simply display an upper component to check whether any diagnostic information messages are present for lower components on the alarm layer. If an error is detected in an upper component, the states of the lower components displayed are those obtained before the error occurred in the upper component. In the case of dual redundant input/output modules, diagnostic information messages for both sides are displayed regardless of which input/output module you select. If there are any diagnostic information messages that have not been acknowledged, the diagnostic information mark ashes. Double-click the name of a component or input/output module to display detailed information of the selected item in Component/Module List View.

Output Enable Operation


If the SCS operating mode is the Waiting mode, some output channels are being placed in the output disabled status, and they do not output the processing results of the application logic to the eld. They do not transmit the results to the consuming side of safety communication between SCSs either. The output enable operation connects the application logic to the output channels and ensures that the result of the application logic processing is output to the eld. This operation also starts safety communication between SCSs. The output enable operation is performed for all output modules of a single SCS. It is not allowed to specify individual output channels. It is not possible to specify only safety communication between SCSs either.

Enabling Output
Click the [Output enabled] button in the I/O Channel Status dialog box; the processing result of the application logic is output to the eld and the SCS operating mode changes to the Running mode. Note that all nodes, all output modules and all channels must be in normal states in order for the SCS to be placed in the Running mode. If there is any error, the status does not change even if you perform an output enable operation.

IOM Download
IOM download is used to download the input/output conguration information stored within the master database of an SCS project to input/output modules that have been replaced due to malfunction, etc. After mounting an input/output module to a node or replacing it, it is necessary to perform IOM download to download the denition data to it. IOM download must also be performed if the standby input/output module is replaced in a dual redundant conguration. Note that the target of IOM download is limited to input/output modules that are not in the Ready status yet.

IMPORTANT
The SCS continues to be in the Waiting mode even if you perform IOM download to output modules. Perform an output enable operation to change channels in the output disabled state to the output enabled state.

IOM Download Operation


Click the IOM load button on the toolbar of the SCS State Management window. The IOM Load dialog box appears. If you click the [OK] button, the input/output conguration information is downloaded to the input/output module selected in the SCS State Management window. The downloaded information is stored in the non-volatile memory of the input/output module. Once the information is downloaded to the input/output module, the SCS performs a startup operation for the input/output module. Check the result of the IOM download from diagnostic information messages. Since the input/output conguration information stored in the SCS projects master database is downloaded, the information previously downloaded to the input/output module is downloaded again even if the SCS project is being changed.

Starting Output Modules


If an error serious enough to activate the Output Shutoff switch inside an output module occurs, the output module does not restart automatically, and the output of the output module is stopped. At this point, the output module is in the status where it waits for startup. Perform an output module start operation if it is desired to restart an output module whose output is stopped. An output module start operation is performed individually. It can be performed regardless of the SCS security level. The SCS continues to be in the Waiting mode even after an output module start operation is completed. Perform an output enable operation to change channels in the output disabled state to the output enabled state.

The output module selected in the SCS State Management window starts up. The output from all channels will continue to be 0 even after the output module starts up. Perform an output enable operation once the output module start operation is completed. The output module is connected to the output of application logic and the result of the application logic processing will be output from the output module. Note that this output module start operation does not inuence the output modules of which the Output Shutoff switch has not been actuated.

All event messages that have occurred within the past one year are displayed as a result of a query for each data source. Note that the number of event messages displayed is limited by the maximum number of records. When the number of total messages exceeds the maximum number of records for display, the latest messages cannot be displayed. In this case, a criterion with specied dates should be used for displaying the messages. Select [Specied Range] or [Past] if you want to display messages that have occurred within a specic period. [Specied Range] A specic date/time range can be specied as the target period of queries. This range can be specied by the start date/time or the end date/time, or both. To include a start or end date/time in the denition of the specic range, select the relevant check box. If the start date/time is not specied, the date/time of the oldest event saved in an SCS is set as the start date/time. If the end date/time is not specied, the date/time of the most recently generated event message is set as the end date/time. To change the start or end date, enter a new date or click the downward arrow on the right side of date/time; a calendar appears. The current date is highlighted in red. Click the desired date.

The values of the elds for the currently selected date/time unit (i.e., hours or minutes) can be increased or decreased by pressing the [+] or [-] key on the keyboard.

[Past] A range of messages generated in the past can be specied as the target period of queries as a time span of hours or days. The time span is specied in units of minutes, hours, or days. If 0 days are specied, events and alarms generated at 0:00 a.m. of the current day and onward are uploaded from the SCS in question. If a number of days is specied, the target hours start from 0:00 of the day. For example, if 1 day is specied, the target hours start from 0:00 a.m. of the calendar day in progress.

Server Connection
A data source is specied by entering a station name of an SCS. When the user executes a query, event logs are uploaded from the specied SCS and displayed in the event mode in SOE Viewer as event messages. In the case of an RS/CS 3000 integration structure, HIS historical information (process alarms of an SCS) can also be specied as a data source. At this point, the data source is specied to be the computer name of the HIS. To specify a data source, select [Used Server]. The setting items for SCS event messages and HIS historical information are shown below.

If the data source is not used, select [Not Used] to avoid generation of error messages.

Message Source(s)
Specify the type of event messages retrieved from an SCS by a query. If the [Alarms] check box is selected, diagnostic information messages become the target of collection. If the [Events] check box is selected, SOE event information becomes the target of collection. Select either the [Alarms] or [Events] check box, or both. Both check boxes are selected by default.

If an asterisk is placed after a character string, the wildcard indicates any number of arbitrary characters after the character string. ? is a wildcard indicating one arbitrary character. If multiple character string patterns are specied for one pattern type (e.g., multiple character string patterns are specied for Message ID only), the ltering result includes all messages matching any of the specied patterns (patterns are combined using OR). If two or more pattern types are specied (e.g., a character string pattern is specied for Message ID and Resource), the result includes only messages that match all of the specied patterns (patterns are combined using AND). In the pattern example shown in the gure above, all messages satisfying the following conditions are displayed: Message(s) whose message ID starts with 1101 or 1102 and whose resource name ends with SCS0101 and whose message text includes 1 or System somewhere in the message.

TIP

Specied lter patterns are not deleted by selecting [Not Used] in order to avoid having to re-enter conditions from scratch in case the specied lter patterns may be needed again. If the patterns are needed again, change the option to [Used].

4-22

4.3

In this mode, SOE Viewer displays event messages of an SCS in a list. This allows analyzing events from relevant information using ltering. This section explains representative operations in the event mode of SOE Viewer.

Event Mode Operation

Activating the Event Mode


When you start SOE Viewer, the event mode is automatically activated. When you start up SOE Viewer for the rst time, no data source is setup. Specify one or more data sources in the SOE Viewer Properties dialog box. Properties can also be set by reading an SOE Viewer conguration le set and saved in advance. If an SOE Viewer conguration le is read, the name of the le is displayed in the title bar of SOE Viewer. If it is desired to change the display to the event mode while SOE Viewer is in the trip mode, click the Event Mode button on the toolbar. Alternatively, select [Event Mode] in the [View] menu. SOE Viewer switches to the event mode.

Data Source Query


If a query is executed, event messages matching the date/time and the data source parameters specied in the SOE Viewer Properties dialog box are acquired, up to the maximum number of records. The event messages are displayed in the message record list of SOE Viewer. In order to execute a query, click the Execute Query button on the toolbar. Alternatively, select [Execute Query] in the [Action] menu.

Message Filtering
The ltering function is used to select only messages of interest among the displayed messages. Filtering by data source is performed based on the message type, message status and ltering pattern settings in the Source Filter tab of the SOE Viewer Properties dialog box. It is possible to set different ltering settings for each data source. In order to apply ltering, click the Filter data button on the toolbar. Alternatively, select [Filter Results] in the [Action] menu. The results of the current query are ltered automatically; it is not necessary to execute a query anew. To view all messages without applying ltering, click the Clear Filter button on the toolbar. Alternatively, select [No Filter/Remove Filter] in the [Action] menu.

The IOM control right switching tool is used when switching between the control side and the standby side of a pair of input/output modules placed in redundant conguration. This section explains the operation procedures.

IOM Control Right Switching Tool

Overview of the IOM Control Right Switching Tool


The IOM control right switching tool is used when switching between the control side and the standby side of a pair of input/output modules for which redundant conguration is specied in I/O Wiring View. It is possible to perform a switching operation for one input/output module pair or one node at a time. This tool can only be used when the security level is 1 or 0.

TIP

The IOM control right switching tool is not used to display the status of input/output modules or to perform operations related to the status of input/output modules.

Precautions at Starting the IOM Control Right Switching Tool


This tool can be used even if an SCS project is started in SCS Manager. Note, however, that if a download operation and an input/output module control right switching operation are performed at the same time, an error occurs in one of the operations. Moreover, the control right of input/output modules cannot be switched while checking in/out in Version Control or executing the Master Database Restoring Function.
