Operator system - OS redundancy

OS redundancy shown in a client/server architecture with high availability

OS single stations and OS servers can have a redundant design if necessary:


A SIMATIC PCS 7 Single Station Redundancy programming package is required to design redundant OS single stations. This contains: OS Software Single Station Software WinCC/Redundancy (in each case for two OS single stations) RS 232 cable connector for optimization of internal communication between the two OS single stations. A SIMATIC PCS 7 Server Redundancy programming package is required to design redundant OS servers. This contains: OS Software Server Software WinCC/Redundancy (in each case for two OS servers) RS 232 cable connector for optimization of internal server-server communication.

A separate Ethernet connection can be used instead of the serial RS 232 connection for optimization of internal communication between the two redundant stations (OS single stations/OS servers). This is an alternative e.g. with larger distances between the stations or if the COM interface is required elsewhere. An optical or electrical connection can be used depending on the environmental conditions and the distance between the redundant stations, e.g. up to 100 m per crossover network cable with RJ45 connectors. For further information, refer to the Manual "SIMATIC PCS 7 V7.0 fault-tolerant process control systems"; for appropriate cable material and further accessories, refer to Catalog IK PI (Industrial Communication). What further components are required depends on the plant architecture. The design of the plant bus and terminal bus (OS-LAN) is of particular importance, as well as the type and number of subordinate automation systems. The maximum requirements are determined by the redundant configuration shown in the figure with a fault-tolerant automation system and

Connection to plant bus


The operator systems (single stations or servers) communicate with the automation systems via the Industrial Ethernet plant bus. The following special points must be observed for redundant configurations:

BCE communication via Ethernet network card 10/100/1000 Mbit/s is generally also sufficient for redundant operator stations. Up to 8 automation systems can be connected per pair of servers in this manner. Communication using CP 1613 is only required in the following cases: Connection of a subordinate fault-tolerant automation system More than 8 stations are required per OS. An operator station with CP 1613 is delivered with the S7-1613 software. If a subordinate fault-tolerant automation system is to be connected, the S7-REDCONNECT software is

required. In this case, the S7-REDCONNECT upgrade must be ordered. If an operator station with BCE communication is to be upgraded for operation with a subordinate fault-tolerant automation system, the S7-REDCONNECT software is required in addition to the CP 1613 communications processor. If the plant bus is to be designed as a redundant dual ring, you require two interface modules (2 x Ethernet network cards 10/100/1000 Mbit/s or 2 x CP 1613) per OS single station / OS server.

Connection of redundant OS single stations / OS servers on the plant bus

Connection to terminal bus (OS-LAN)


You can connect clients and servers to a non-redundant terminal bus (OS-LAN) using the onboard Ethernet interface or a desktop adapter network card. With a redundant terminal bus where two rings are connected together via two pairs of switches, each station must be connected to both rings using a SIMATIC PCS 7 redundant terminal bus adapter package. The SIMATIC PCS 7 redundant terminal bus adapter package consists of server and desktop adapter network cards (for details on the configuration, refer to the Manual "SIMATIC PCS 7 V7.0 fault-tolerant process control systems").
