En­try point to the world of au­to­ma­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FACILITIES MANAGEMENT -

RS Com­po­nents says the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of LOGO! 8 logic con­trol mod­ules for in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions is now eas­ily con­trol­lable via the new LOGO! web ed­i­tor from Siemens.

The LOGO! web ed­i­tor has been de­signed to en­able the con­trol of in­di­vid­ual LOGO! 8 logic mod­ules. The new tool makes it very easy for users to de­fine and de­sign their own web pages from a PC, smart­phone or tablet, prom­ises RS. For ex­am­ple, users can vi­su­alise and con­trol their LOGO! 8 switch­ing and au­to­ma­tion so­lu­tions for build­ing in­stal­la­tions, con­trol cab­i­net, ma­chine or ap­pa­ra­tus con­struc­tion in­di­vid­u­ally and eas­ily via the web. Users can even use a real photo of an in­di­vid­ual au­to­ma­tion ob­ject and com­ple­ment it with self- de­fined vis­ual sen­sor data or switch­ing el­e­ments, and then use a com­puter or per­sonal smart de­vice to mon­i­tor and/or switch their heat­ing or an alarm sys­tem.

The web ed­i­tor has been de­signed to be ‘ex­cep­tion­ally easy to use’ with no re­quire­ment for ad­di­tional knowl­edge of HTML, for ex­am­ple. En­abling a quick start, sim­ple op­er­at­ing and dis­play el­e­ments are al­ready in­cluded in the li­brary sup­plied, and ad­di­tional el­e­ments can be eas­ily cre­ated and added to the li­brary.

RS says the mod­ule has been de­signed to be the ideal en­try point to the world of au­to­ma­tion, fea­tur­ing eight ba­sic CPU mod­ules that de­liver Eth­er­net con­nec­tiv­ity and im­proved hard­ware with space-sav­ing dis­plays and user­friendly soft­ware. In ad­di­tion to of­fer­ing the full se­lec­tion of LOGO! 8 logic con­trollers, RS says it is work­ing closely with Siemens to en­able a smooth tran­si­tion for cus­tomers to mi­grate to the lat­est se­ries. RS has al­ready put in place a global mar­ket­ing pro­gramme to in­form cus­tomers about the up­grade and the choices avail­able for fu­ture de­signs.

Of­fer­ing sim­ple in­stal­la­tion, min­i­mum wiring and user-friendly pro­gram­ming, en­gi­neers can eas­ily im­ple­ment small au­to­ma­tion projects us­ing the LOGO! 8 in­tel­li­gent logic mod­ules, says RS. Im­ple­men­ta­tion of LOGO! sys­tem mod­ules en­ables sig­nif­i­cant space sav­ing in con­trol cab­i­nets, and the easy im­ple­men­ta­tion of func­tions such as time- de­lay switch­ing, time re­lays, coun­ters and other aux­il­iary re­lay func­tions, prom­ises the com­pany.
