The software S5 for Windows offers the tools for documenting, making, changing, and testing programs for PLC (programmable logic controllers). The software S5 for Windows is built for programming the family of Siemens PLC SIMATIC S5 with STEP 5. The LAD (Ladder Diagram), the FBD (Function Block Diagram) and the STL (Statement List) are utilized as arrangements for S5. Existing programs S5 can be changed directly without import or export. The software S5 for Windows is well-matched to the original programming unit of Siemens.
The OsciCAM enables to evaluate movement processes via synchronization of earlier process signals and recorded videos. The recorded videos can be exposed synchronously to process signals and the status of recorded block of the PLC by time stamp. The dynamic procedures can be explored by consequently the block status analysis frame by frame with the Statusrecorder. The Statusrecorder records the status of block and demonstrates these using time stamp, allowing following modifying between the presentations LAD, CSF and STL.
The functions of oscilloscope
The programming system diagnostic capabilities are further improved with the feature of Oscilloscope. Dynamic processes can be checked and examined in an incorporated screen, in feel and look modified from the front panel of oscilloscope. Summiting to signals I/O with a virtual test probe is adequate for multiple signals monitoring within the virtual oscilloscope. The recording of signal can be closed at any time for more timing machine fault investigation. Besides inspection signals I/O, also the local variables state at a specified program execution position can be observed, by simply pointing to the variable using the probe of test in block status.
Create and Correct
At ease editor to make and revise tables symbol is incorporated. Exploring and substituting for any criteria as fine as rewiring is probable. A check of syntax is incorporated. The new contented multiple segment editor for the statement lists creation, ladder diagrams function and block diagrams lets the complex functions representation too. Focus was place on the easily use with the keyboard and/or the mouse.
The new addresses allocation with syntax check is incorporated. The lists of statement are made with the integrated editor comfortably. The clipboard of Windows can be utilized for configuration manipulations or program in any place. The lists of statement can be changed into ladder diagrams or function block diagram, as long as they are able to display. The Ladder Diagrams and Function Block Diagrams display in State Statement Lists form is always possible.
