The operating mode provides information about the nature and extent of the intervention on the control equipment by the operators, and also via feedback from the equipment (DIN 19 237). This value must be coded in bit form or be documented as an integer for machines which are components of bottling systems:.
The fields of the WSOperatingModeEnumerationType DataType are defined in the following table:
|Off||1||The machine state (in the Weihenstephan Standards the machine state is understood to be the operating mode) provides information about whether the machine is off (Off: relevant bit = 1 or identification by the documented integer number). If this bit is not set, then the machine is in operation and is in one of the following operating modes.|
|Manual||2||An operating mode in which the control units only operate with intervention by the operator and involve possible locking mechanisms (DIN 19237). As opposed to the DIN standard, in the context of the Weihenstephan Standards this term also includes the setup mode, the step setting mode and tipping mode.|
|Semi-automatic||4||An operating mode in which only some of the controls or part of the program function without intervention by the operator (DIN 19 237). In the context of the Weihenstephan Standards, this term means that the machines of a bottling plant are not integrated into a control concept for the entire system and the set output is manually controlled on site.|
|Automatic||8||An operating mode in which the control unit operates without intervention by the operator following a set of control procedures (DIN 19 237). In the context of the Weihenstephan Standards this term means that the machines of a production plant are integrated into a control concept for the entire system and the set output is automatically controlled.|
