10 Notes on Learning & Programming Think & Do  If experienced in Control System  Would be quick to pick up (Short Learning Curve)  A lot of Control People already think of state & sequence of the process & have to translate this to ladder logic when design a control system  Flowchart programming  eliminates this translation process as it naturally represents the state & sequence  Directly translate from Design flow charts  For experienced Ladder Logic programmer  May need just a bit unlearning to do

11 Topic 2 PC Based Control 1. PC-Based Control 2. What is PC-Based Control 3. The Obstacle: Legacy PLC Systems 4. Typical PC Control System Hardware Components 5. Why PC-based Control ?

12 PC-Based Control What is PC-Based Control? Why do you need it?... Differences from PLC control... Components... Architecture... Just can’t do it with a PLC?... Need to reduce implementation time/costs?... Need to reduce launch cycle?... Need to improve quality & reduce down time?

13 HMI PC Programming PC What is PC-Based Control? Let’s first look at PLC Architecture... Data Collector PC PLC w/ rack I/O

14 HMI Programming\Debug Control Data Collection What is PC-Based Control? ‘What if we combined the functionality of all this hardware into one box?’ ‘The Single Box Solution’

15 What is PC-Based Control? Choose the I/O brand that you want! Choose the I/O bus that you want! Mix & match brands and buses! ‘Freedom from the confines of the PLC’ Distribute the I/O closer to actual devices

16  Legacy Automation Systems  Based on 30 year old PLC technology  Programmed with “relay ladder logic”  emulates wired relay cabinets circa 1950s  difficult to program, understand, maintain  Equipped with less memory – thus, applications like trending, sorting or data analysis requires a separate PC  Not Designed for Advanced Automation  Product ID &Tracking  Vision Inspection Systems  Data Collection & SPC/SQC ( Statistical Process Ctrl / Statistical Quality Ctrl )  IT Connectivity The Obstacle: Legacy PLC Systems

17 Typical PC Control System Hardware Components  I/O Scanner Card  Accessory Card equipped with processor  Regularly schedules, polls & Updates I/O Status along with I/O Sub-System  I/O Network Card  Intelligent I/O Devices  Attached directly to network cables  Include I/O Modules with built-in network adapters, I/O processors in racks, smart sensors and actuators.  Industrial PC (IPC)  Equipped with better RFI & EMI shielding  More robust power supply  More easily replaceable components  Usually LCD VGA Integrated

18 Why PC-Based Control ? (Vs. Conventional PLC)  PC-based Control combines functions that runs on several separate platforms in a PLC system into a single PC   cost & space  Includes Advanced Control Functions  Eg. Graphical operator interface, Data collection, Alarming & storage (Previously done by SCADA)  PC platforms typically utilizes more advanced technology  Software platform supported by thousands of vendors

19 Why PC-Based Control ?  Off-the-shelf Hardware & Software  Cost effective solutions available with both hardware & software solutions to readily integrate with the system  Same technology used in office system = common comm. Platform  Using Windows NT, 2000, XP platform offers built-in comm. services (TCP/IP & low cost PC Ethernet cards)  -> Very cost effective enterprise-wide network connectivity  Open to cheaper commercial alternatives (eg. Scan Card -> Ethernet Card)  Typical PC comes with more memory  Less cost of memory upgrade compared to PLC  Hard disk getting cheaper & bigger

20 Why PC-Based Control ?  Open Hardware Architecture  Allow to mixing & matching of various bus systems & modules of various brands  Hardware Manufacturer Independence  Not held hostage by Single PLC Manufacturer  Ease partial Upgrading  Allow scaling project upgrade {instead of changing all hardware at same time}  No need for re-engineering the control program  Due to hardware product obsolescence or absence of vendor support is eliminated  Avoid Proprietary Interfaces & ease Network Connectivity  Unlike PLC that are difficult to extract info from (proprietary interface, networks),  PC offers ease Office Network Connectivity, cheap commercial network solutions

21 Why PC-Based Control ?  Programming Language  Not limited to Allow Other choice of programming lang. (Flowchart)  Not limited to RLL (Relay Ladder Logic)  Allow Other choice of programming lang. (Flowchart)  Allow use & interaction with other software, utilities & programming language  Enterprise Connectivity  Ease Connectivity to Office PC, or even across Internet  Ease Connectivity to MES, SAP, etc  Enable Data Connectivity  Standard Windows Comm. Tools  Real-time data shared with other windows applications through DDE, OPC  Real-time Database Connectivity

22 Why PC-Based Control ?  Moving to a Data driven platform  Readily info on production, statistic, quality info, historical data to managers at their very desk  Online data access & control available to Maintenance Technicians  Operators can get online tutorial stored in a remote file server

23 Topic 3 Entivity PC Based Solution 1. Entivity PC Based Solution 2. VLC Overview 3. Studio Overview

35 Topic 4 VLC Overview

36 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of Running on a PC Platform’ Freedom to Choose PC Manufacturer – Not locked into particular processor because of I/O choice. Easy To Upgrade – CPU, memory, etc. are readily available by numerous suppliers. Not locked in by PLC supplier. A Single-Box Solution – Design, debug, runtime and HMI all on a single box. No downloads to PLC, no separate programming terminal required, no maintaining a separate HMI PC. Connectivity to ALL Distributed I/O Schemes such as InterBus-S, ProfiBus, DeviceNet, Modbus TCP/IP, and Ethernet IP. OEM’s can offer options & configurations that are NOT possible with a PLC architecture.

I/O Connectivity

40 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of Running on a PC Platform’ Database Connectivity becomes easy once you are part of the Microsoft-Intel world. Transaction Express provides IT personnel a full-featured, non-invasive transactional method for extracting data from the process via OPC and depositing it into an SQL database. The PLC has no concept of SQL. Integrated InTime RTOS provides the VLC Runtime Engine with both determinism and the reliability of a PLC without being confined to the limitations of a PLC. All The Free Extras – Hard drive, networking, video, 3 rd party software applications.

41 VLC Runtime Engine ‘The Heart of the System’ INtime RTOS. Created by Intel in the 1970’s Reliable, proven, deterministic, hard real-time Adjustable, sub-millisecond scan rates Allocates CPU cycles to Windows. Runs in a separate memory space from Windows Impervious to blue screen faults & other Windows glitches Reliability of a PLC without the limitations

42 VLC Runtime Memory Device drivers User Program I/O Interface cards I/O Universal Input\Output Table (UIOT) Real-time interface (the ‘wormhole’) Windows NT Intime RTOS VLC Maintainer firewall HMI VLC Designer

43 VLC Runtime Logic Scan Scan Time InputsOutputsLogic Windows InputsOutputsLogic Windows deterministic extremely fast user adjustable down to 250 microseconds not impacted by Windows applications

44 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of the VLC Flowchart Programming Environment’ Which is easier to determine the sequence’? Which looks easier to debug? Which provides ‘historical’ logic solve information?

45 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of the VLC Flowchart Programming Environment’ Easy to Read & Understand - Universally recognized language for describing a process that is easily understood by all engineering disciplines within an organization. Easier for support staff to locate and fix problems which means faster commissioning and less down time. No Translation Step – Most code design starts with the creation of a flowchart. A flowchart programming language eliminates the step of translating to another language such as RLL. Flowcharting lets you design and program in a single step and is self-documenting.

46 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of the VLC Flowchart Programming Environment’ Single Programming Language in a Single Package for discrete control, motion, RS232, complex algorithms, etc. Advanced Instruction Set provides the programmer with powerful tools for advance mathematics, string manipulation, and iterative processes in a clear, natural, readable language. Most PLC’s lack a high-level instruction set and\or require cryptic RLL coding to accomplish complex calculations. Address-less Tagging of I/O Points and internal variables provides real world naming conventions. No translation from cryptic manufacturer-specific addressing scheme.

47 Integrated Motion Programming Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of the VLC Flowchart Programming Environment’

48 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of the VLC Flowchart Programming Environment’ Advanced Instruction Set

49 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘The Advantage of the VLC Flowchart Programming Environment’ It’s easy and natural to build in diagnostics during creation of control code. OEM’s will be able to deliver more powerful, more readable diagnostics in a shorter amount of time. Subroutine capability allows re-use of pre-existing code which shortens the development cycle and standardizes commonly used routines. Flowchart logic solve methodology helps achieve super fast scan rates. Solve only the logic that needs to be solved rather than solving all the logic all the time as in a PLC.

50 Why Use Entivity VLC? ‘In Conclusion A single, powerful, self documenting, integrated flowchart design, debug and control package... with a proven, deterministic real-time runtime engine... with connectivity to all the distributed I/O technologies... with a full-featured, non-invasive data collection tool... all running on a single box on the most widely used computing platform in the world (Microsoft & Intel)... results in a system that reduces both ‘upfront’ costs of implementation and commissioning as well as the cost of ‘maintaining’ a complex automation system
