We mention some of the most important characteristics of these environment: |
automatically solving the most problems due to hardware resources and communication with operating system, in this way the user can focus to his specific problem not to computer functionality. E.g. Almost al nodes (functions), also diagrams, are polymorphic, they can adapt to any kind of data, even if they are simple real values or data structures;
graphical environment is more compact, the diagrams inside a window contain more information then a text and is more easy to read and to understand, also the drawing of an diagram is faster then writing of the equivalent text;
in graphical environment parallelism is natural, so coding for parallel data processing is so easy like sequential processing;
allow networking, on more computers, thro TCP/IP and UDP, through many functions for working in WAN’s and Internet;
Allow development of applications for monitoring and control for distributed systems;
Allow continuously data recording, warnings management, events recording, establish historical and temporary trends, access control (read and/or write) to data, connectivity to any PLC or I/O device;
User level security for miscellaneous applications;
SQL network database connectivity;
Make possible to realize application for real time following the events, with errors exclusions;
With process computer aid, user can redefine inputs and/or outputs within a simple block diagram;
Because the block diagram is executed direct hardware, the user can control direct and immediately all I/O signals from reconfigured board;
Using this module, user have the freedom to define hardware for a large spectrum of applications ( analogical and discreet control, simulation, digital emulate of protocols, control loops and other application that need an precise delay and control);
Generate reports for following the programming quality and reduce the work for documentation;
They automate task and use a programmable interface;
Allow sound examination, vibrations and others dynamic signals generated by mechanical systems who include movement components (e.g.: motors, pumps, compressors, bearings, tires, transmission systems, generators);
Generate end edit MS Word and Excel reports;
Complete with data the forms for reporting and manage the position in page, formatting and report look ;
Include files for user interface, data acquisition, tools control, analyze and data processing, show results, sending them on Internet, display as an web page and remote control of the application;
Process computers works together with PC-s, combine the advantages of PLC’s (reduced dimensions, the ability to work in though… industrial environments and reliability) with those of PC’s ( software functionality and flexibility, float comma operations realize by processor and RAM, interactivity with web servers for monitoring and remote control, for data storage and serial ports for communication with other devices). For mobile platforms working, in industrial environment, process computers … up to 50 g shocks and 5g vibrations. Thermal range is -25ºC ÷ +60ºC.
Data distributed acquisition module system connect directly to sensors and transductions, filter, digitize, calibrate and scale signals and then send then through serial interfaces (RS-232 and RS-485), Ethernet, CAN. A large variety of sensors and transductions can be connected like: thermo switches, thermo resistors, tensiometric marks, sensors with outputs of 4 – 20 mA, or a variety of digital signal from 5 – 30VDC to 0 – 240VAC.
The modules are intended for application that work tuff conditions ( working temperature -40, the voltage of bench insulated is over 2300 Vrms and between modules 250 Vrms.
