The company PLANER Systemtechnik supports it's employee Mrs. Sabine Habeth and two classmates of School of Electrical Engineering Hennef on her thesis to the successful completion of the "certified technician". The project team are Mr. Daniel Gusowski and Mrs. Sabine Habeth, shown on picture 1 - and Mr. Serge Peters on picture 2.


In the 6th semester of engineerung school, the students hab to perform a challeging project-work, where they focused on process automation.

The project focused on the development of a test stand to minimize the testing time and simplify the debugging of the production of standard cabinets. The objective was to develop a fully automated cycle control that is user friendly to implement via a touch panel. Through this automation, test times - that can be up to two hours - are reduced to a quarter of an hour.


The aim of the task was, after a period of two semesters,to present the project results in front of the class "TE9W" and the audit committee, represented by Mr. Kampen. During this period had been 900 hours of development work which had to complete the project team at their leisure.

To automate the above process, a sequencer, programmed with "SIMATIC STEP 7", was realized in 762 networks - which in turn issued to 512 inputs / outputs of a PLC or read.





The signals from the PLC to be given over to self-developed probes that can adapt terminal blocks with only one handle 378 terminals.

Touchpanel with error output window


The visualization program was developed with "WinCCflexible". The touch panel allows the operator, who needs no previous knowledge, to perform with all the details of the test. This is enabled by 568-scale images. After the automatic testing of the operator, proof may be printed, providing a detailed description of the tested steps. This test report is sent via the touch panel on the integrated printer and serves as evidence of the tested functions.

The test stand is able to detect faults in the wiring independently and shows the operator the exact fault location. (Picture 6 shows a localized error)




Finally we would like to thank the project team and are proud of the final result!
