Automation and control systems can be generally defined as systems minimizing unnecessary human intervention. They have a positive influence, for example, on
- effectivity of production,
- reduction of heating and cooling costs,
- reduction of staff requirements
In a number of areas, the degree of automation and process management has reached a level in which human intervention is no longer necessary. Automated systems have become a daily part of our lives, and their significance continues to rise. We continuously upgrade our product range to suit the latest trends. A major milestone in our production was the emergence of IP technology in 2007. Already, from the second generation of LAN-RING industrial switches, a part of their software is a block called Event management and also physical (digital inputs, relay outputs) and virtual (TCP events, ONVIF commands) inputs and outputs. Event management is a powerful and intuitive tool for control without feedback. Development of course continues. Currently, we have completed IPLOG-GAMA industrial PLCs developed in accordance with IEC 61131 series standards. In the third part of this standard are defined programming languages, which have become the global standard for programming of modern automation systems. The independence of IEC 61131-3 from a particular organization or a private company has helped to make these programs easily transferable between different manufacturers of control systems. To make the programming of our PLC IPLOG-GAMA and IO modules as simple as possible, we have prepared a versatile development environment METEL IEC 61131-3 IDE.
METEL IEC 61131-3 IDE
IDE is a complete development environment for creating, managing and debugging programs for IPLOG PLCs.
Event Management - Overview of Available Inputs and Outputs
The unique set of tools in the LAN-RING switches and IPLOGs PLCs allows you to set up a variety of automatic actions independent of external software. The table below provides an overview of supported inputs and outputs that can be used to set automatic actions.
