Controller with extended software functions

January 2013 PLCs, DCSs & Controllers

Wago has streamlined the software in its 750-830 BACnet controller, making system-wide integration and configuration even easier. The latest version of the BACnet controller not only supports text messages, which are displayed in plain text on the management level, but also two additional object types: loop for control algorithms and event enrollment for alarm queries. Another new feature allows the user to create Trend Log and Calendar dynamic objects during runtime. This eliminates the need for a system reboot and an external integrator. A device manager has also been added to the configurator, considerably simplifying object configuration and allowing tabular data processing.

The controller’s standard operation, which allows a BACnet object to be automatically generated for each standard I/O signal, has received two significant upgrades. Firstly, I/O modules can be added or removed from a fieldbus node without any shifting of the object entities. Secondly, physical values can be scaled directly in the form of analogue input/output objects. Additional analogue value objects are no longer required in CoDeSys, while mass processing of data points and integration into external systems are simplified considerably.
