New Product: Automation-software suite

Jan. 24, 2008
This automation-software suite includes control programming, HMI development, OPC connectivity, and enterprise database integration

It offers an architecture where control function like analog scaling, digital counting, and PID loop control are distributed to I/O processors. New functions include frequency measurement for determining the frequency of digital states and used to read the speed of rotating machinery, velocity encoders, etc.; period measurement for determining how long a digital point remains on or off; analog totalization for sampling and totaling analog input readings at predetermined intervals; and digital totalization for determining on-or-off time of a digital input.

Upgrades to the HMI development and runtime portion include a security feature for user login and logout that captures operator actions during runtime, new runtime features show the origins of controller and I/O data, new multimedia alarming capabilities associate and play unique sound files with individual alarm notifications, and support for 64-bit integer tables exchanges large data arrays with the PAC controller.
