In the thesis, we have investigated the problem of development of an application for trend monitoring, inspection and alarming at critical values of the press SMS SH45/40 MN. The application was designed for the needs of company SIJ Metal Ravne d.o.o., and is intended for both, the operators and the employees in the company's management. To solve the problem we used the software and hardware which was available to me as an scholarship holder of the company.
First we have briefly presented the chronological development of the company and the iron industry over time in Ravne na Koroškem. In the next chapter we presented the press and the manipulator, which work synchronously. In this chapter, we have also summarized the features of the used contoller, i.e. Siemens SIMATIC S7 416 and its expandable module Siemens CP 443-1, which are controlling the system. The contoller and the module are used to acquire and transmit the data from the sensors, witch are used in the following tasks.
The fourth chapter is intended to present a controller program, which serves to acquire the data and sends it to the collector controller. The program has been described in details and the program code was added. For easier understanding the chapter also includes some diagram schemes of the program.
The following section is devoted to the presentation of the OPC server configuration.
The last chapter presents Microsoft Visual Studio development environment and all possible OPCWPF features, while the second part of the chapter presents a finished WPF application.
The thesis ends with some conclusive remarks and ideas for further work.
