Heizomat Gerätebau Energiesysteme based in Gunzenhausen, Germany produces high-end heating plants with an extensive array of functions in its Maicha and Heidenheim locations. The plants, constructed in-house and designed to generate energy from renewable fuels, often comprise more than simply a boiler: they encompass elements of the building technology itself. To allow these complex systems to be operated, Heizomat relies on modern Siemens technology, ensuring that customers both at home and abroad are able to operate their heating plants intuitively. Making this possible are Simatic HMI (human machine interface) comfort panels with touchscreen. As a distributed I/O, the Simatic ET 200SP comprises an interface module with integrated CPU (computer processing unit) and Profinet connection for communication. In total, up to 64 I/O modules and a server module can be optionally configured as required. During the engineering process, Heizomat uses the “option handling” function from the TIA Portal. This means that complex automation projects only need to be configured once for their maximum configuration, after which different options can be defined and flexibly activated when required.
