Using „Relay Mimic Editor“ tool you can draw mnemoscheme on PLC‘s HMI: circuit breaker, truck, earth switch, busbar. More about „Relay Mimic Editor“ tool you can read in manufacturer‘s ABB manual “Relay Mimic Editor Configuration 1MRS751904-MEN“. In this article you learn how to use „Relay Mimic Editor“ tool.

1. Select project’s object (in my case „IC-1) and open “Relay Mimic Editor“ tool:

2. In article no. 8 „CAP505: Measurements configuration using „Relay Mimic Editor“ tool“ we already have created measurements on HMI using “Relay Mimic Editor“ tool. Drag this voltages‘ and currents‘ measurements windows (by selecting „0.00“) to place as shown in picture:

13-2

Now we need drag letters „A“ and „kV“ in the same place.
To do this, press button „Background image“:

13-3

drag „A“ ir „kV“ to place as shown in picture:

13-4

13-5

3. In „Background Image“ window select „Save and Close“:

13-9

6. Press „Edit“:

13-10

7. In „Icon Bitmap“ window draw picture as shown in figure:

13-11

9. In „Icons“ windows „IND“ appeared our picture:

13-13

10. Click „Save“ to save picture as „CBT_test_up“:

13-14

11. Now select empty window (SW) near (IND):

13-15

12. Press button „Load“ and insert file „CBT_test_up.mic“:

13-16

13-17

In „Icons“ window near (SW) appeared the same picture:

13-18

13. Press button „Edit“ again:

13-19

In „Icon Bitmap“ window, press „Select“ button and select whole picture:

15. Now we have turned picture in (SW) window:

13-23

16. Save this picture as „CBT_test_down.mic“:

13-24

13-25

17. In the same manner draw others picture (see particles 4-16 of this article). Now we have:

13-26

Here (CB) 4 windows are circuit breaker‘s positions, (DC) – earth switch‘s 4 possible indications, (IND) and(SW) – circuit breaker‘s truck positions.

To exit from „Icons“ window click „OK“.

18. Now I‘m going to insert circuit breaker‘s indication. In „IC-1 –Relay Mimic Editor“ window click button „CB“ („Insert Circuit Breaker“):

13-27

13-28

In „Icons“ window click button „Close“:

13-29

In „Select Icon“ window select picture as shown in figure (select „closed“ CB‘s position):

13-30

Press „OK“.

Press button „Undefined 11“:

13-31

In „Select Icon“ window select picture „undefined 11“ and click „OK“:

13-32

In „COCB-Circuit Breaker“ window in sub-window „Icons“ all pictures corresponds to their purposes.

Press „OK.“

 

 

Now we have circuit breaker‘s picture:

13-33

Move this picture to middle on HMI:

13-34

Now we need to insert CB truck positions.

19. I‘m going to insert upper position of CB truck. Press „IND“ window:

13-35

Select in „Icons“ window „Open“ picture and press „OK“:

13-36

Now we have upper position of CB truck:

13-37

Move this picture as shown in figure:

13-38

20. Now I‘m going to insert bottom position of CB truck. Press again button „IND“:

13-39

In „COIND-Indication“ window press button „Open“ and click „OK“:

13-40

In „Select Icon“ window select bottom position of CB truck and press „OK“:

13-41

Now in „Open“ window we have bottom position of CB truck picture:

13-42

In the same manner reverse pictures in „Close“, „Undefined11“, „Undefined 00“ windows:

13-43

Reversed pictures:

13-44

Click „OK“.

 

 

Bottom position of CB truck:

13-45

Drag this picture as shown in figure:

13-46

21. Now I‘m going to draw busbar. Press button „Background Image“:

13-47

Draw busbar (with name „Busbar“) as shown in picture:

13-48

Select „Save and Close“.

22. The next step – insert earth switch indication.
In „IC-1 Relay Mimic Editor“ window press button „DC“ („Insert Disconnector“):

13-49

In „Icons“ window define correct earth switch positions (see particle 19 of this article):

13-50

Press „OK“.

Move earth switch picture as shown in figure:

13-51

13-52

23. We need edit picture: I‘m going to name circuit breaker as „IC-1“, earth switch as „ESW-1“. We need also to connect one lead of earth switch to busbar.

Press button „Background Image“:

13-53

After picture editing we need to save it by selecting „Save and Close“:

13-54

24. I‘ve created REF543 mnemoscheme, with circuit breaker, CB truck and earth switch:

13-55

25. In „IC-1 Relay Mimic Editor“ click „File>Save“:

13-56

To close „IC-1 Relay Mimic Editor“ window, select „File>Exit“:

13-57

Press „Yes“:
