PLC Engine connects programable controllers,
supervisory control systems and devices among themselves and with the
automation world. It connects controllers and databases, too. Likewise
it works as OPC server and OPC client to SCADA Systems.
With BACnet it openes controllers and databases to the building automation. Take Your tablet or smartphone for a fast view oy Your plant.
Over Ethernet it offers access to the controllers from the companies Siemens, Rockwell Automation, Wago, Modicon, Schneider Electric and others.
OPC UA and MQTT opens the Industrie 4.0 and IoT world.
PLC Engine is simply to configure. Wizards are offering frequently needed predefined functions.
The PLC Engine allows data processing in production lines.
It connects controllers, devices, SCADA systems and databases from various
manufacturers. It processes the data and dispatches them between the
connected devices and other systems. It collects data, manages them and
creates overviews for OEE applications.
Additional all the data can be handled over OPC. This are processed data and all data from the connected controllers, devices, OPC systems and databases.
PLC Engine is the perfect component for using it for communications in Industrie 4.0.
|Boosts the PLC communication with logical optimizing of the requests. Often this will happen to error texts from the controllers. The messages need to be fetched normally if the corresponding error number is changing and a new error condition becomes true. Without any change to Your SCADA system the communication speeds up. The main reason is less load on the communication line.|
|Exchanges data between controllers and devices without PLC
programming or SCADA functionality. That's how it's done:
PLC Engine is reading the data from a controller or device and writes
them into another controller or device. The writing normally takes
place if the data are changing. With configurable triggers data
which are depending on other data conditions for the writing can be
defined. The data will converted if necessary. This is important if both controllers are different: One Siemens S7, the other a Rockwell Control Logix.
More complex handling is possible, too: Collecting of data from one or multiple controllers, do some calculation with the data, and write the result to a controller or device. Of course, any OPC compatible system can use the same data also.
|Collects and processes data
PLC Engine is reading data from one or more controllers.
The data are collected and possibly calculated or normalized.
If all data are in place they are ready to process for other systems or OPC access.
During the logical processing the data are blocked for access.
Syncronous data access are waiting until the collection is finished.
Configurable error conditions are configurable: If one of the controllers is not available constant data are used, or an error number is processed.
|Exchanges data with common databases. You can read data from controllers and write them directly into common databases - with optional calculations. Data readed from databases can be written into controllers, too. All the data are available for OPC systems also.|
|Collects data over long time for OEE into a local or external database. So easily OEE applications can be build. The integrated websites are offering the collected and calculated data directly as curves or other. Additionally the data can be handled over OPC.|
The configuration works in graphical style or with simple lists.
Lot of Wizards simplify this.
The example logs from barcode reader, adds a timestamp and writes both into a .csv file.
This example reads a barcode, gets the print data from a database and priths the result.
Diagnostics boost the startup in plants. Use Your smartphone or tablet and all of the status displays.
The diagnostics logger handles longer running information collecting.
All this is available as a small device for cabinets. The functionality is the same as PLC Engine on PC. Additional it can be configured with a browser. Your tablet or smartphone can be used for maintenance and diagnostics.
PLC Engine is made for heterogeneous networks with different controllers and devices from lot of different vendors.
