Regarded as SoftPLC, Advantech Control IPCs not only leverage PLCopen, IEC 61131-3 software including LD/FBD/IL/ST and SFC, but also empower many application-oriented & practice-oriented function blocks to different domain fields, such as batch control for food/beverage, auto-tuning PID for temperature control in EFMS, PLCopen-compliant motion control blocks for a variety of trajectory control and positioning purposes in machine automation. Multi-tasking, runtime error reports and operating mode chances are also possible for Control IPCs applications. ForPC-basedusers,Advantechalsooffersthe.NETfunctionlibrary.Systemintegratorscan benefit from flexibility to integrate I/O control, motion control, industrial communication protocols and data process/exchange, database access, HMI interface and SCADA. Plenty of C/C++ and .NET examples save programmer learning time, helping save programmers’ development effort and shorten time to market. .NET and C/C++ Library Advantech’s Control IPCs series solution offers a complete PC-based platform with Application Programming Interface (API). With C/C++ libraries and .NET class libraries provided by Advantech, PC-based programmers can develop their own programs for industrial control and automation tasks, involving I/O control, system backup function, communication, SQL and scheduling, even integrated with HMI/SCADA interface. Modbus Server Advantech’sPACseriesoffersModbus/RTUandModbus/TCPfordataexchangepurposes. Advantech offers a series of APIs, including Modbus server/client configuration, easy data access function and callback function for multithread event handling. Plenty of samples programs can help you to easily set up the Modbus communication. Besides, APAX-5580 series and APAX-5620 controller has built-in Modbus server, so any Modbus client (such as HMI) can access to APAX I/O without writing programming. DiagAnywhere – Remote Maintenance Software DiagAnywhere, an abbreviation of "Diagnostic Anywhere", is a networking solution for remotely monitoring and controlling APAX controllers through Windows-based operating systems. It includes the utility on the client side and the server on APAX controllers. Any computer installed with the utility can connect to APAX controllers, seeing what’s happens on the controller and performing remote control. It is very convenient that the engineer doesn’t need use a screen to operate the controller in the field, and allows them to maintain the system on the remote site. One DiagAnywhere client can monitor and control up to 16 target controllers simultaneously. This useful software tool also supports remote screen snapshots, remote screen recording, file upload and download between utility (on the client computer) and server (APAX controller), favorite devices grouping to manage system more easily, and authentication functionality. All these features help users save maintenance cost and effort.
