The standard of universal W3C for exchange the data through the internet is utilized as the format source for applications of Unity for example configurations, variables, programs, inputs/outputs, etc. Easy import/export is utilized to switch all or the application part with other software in the project e.g. CAD, etc. UDE (Unity Developer's Edition) and its programming interfaces in VBA, C++, and Visual Basic can be utilized to build up custom solutions for example a variables generator, interfaces with electrical CAD, a PLC program or task automation of repetitive design. A lot of software publishers use UDE to make simpler data exchange using Unity Pro;
Compatibility with existing applications
The applications of PL7 and Concept IEC61131 are introduced into Unity Pro by an incorporated converter as a standard feature. Operating update system offered with Unity Pro is accessible for most Quantum and Premium PLC processors. Existing field bus modules, I/O peripherals, application-specific, and communication stay well-matched with Unity Pro.
Automated/production systems engineer solutions
Here complicated architectures applying numerous PLCs which correspond with each other and with SCADA. These architectures also interface with the systems of corporate management. Optimization system needs a global approach to interconnect all the means, business departments, and partners. We can differentiate into two types of interaction:
• Collaborative: The tools of software carry the connection between the relevant players in the maintenance, design, building, and operating stages to cut the cost and time of the tool of production and develop its quality.
• Real time: This differentiates the link with the systems of CRM (Customer Relationship Management), MES (stock and production management) and accounts management to optimize flows in the stage of operating;
The applications are expanded which is not simple to grab their individual positions in their environment. The requirement for cross-software exchange guides to an approach of collaborative through the business.
