PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 is system software for logic analysis and acquisition of recorded data on PLC-controlled facilities. Representation, acquisition, and evaluation of PLC signals such as inputs, outputs, data words, flags, etc. is now very easy. Online display provides possible observation of the signal waveform in real time. Trigger conditions can be specified for the particular events of acquisition in addition to long-term recording. This allows seldom occurring sporadic errors to be recorded for later analysis.
The PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 has the recording process data advantage through standardized PLC interfaces (e. g. SIMATIC S5 - programming unit interface), or by automation networks (e. g. SIMATIC S7 - MPI/PPI, PROFIBUS or Industrial Ethernet) in contrast to traditional logic analyzers. A computer that is linked for the purpose of programming the PLC can be used for recording process data without hardware modifications. The hooking up monitoring cables tiresome process is now a thing of the past. The recording of cycle-precise is attractive because of the complete acquisition of measured values in each PLC cycle. AD_USB-Box external current and voltage signals, which are not available in the PLC, can also be recorded. Project files build it possible to automate frequently recurring acquisition sessions for various facilities by using the measurement interface. Data can be acquired at individual PLC directly from PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 over the public telephone network together with the terraLink remote maintenance system.
For integration in a switchgear case AUTEM offers the BLACKBOX ultracompact Mini-PC for long-term PLC process data recording. PLC-ANALYZER pro 5 is a tool for PLC software development, construction, installation, technical service and training. AUTEM gives an inexpensive licensing model with primary and additional licenses for one or more than one workstations.
