Automation Studio is used to configure and program all B&R control components. Core issues include getting a clear overview of all product groups, initial commissioning of a controller, understanding the functions of the runtime environment and knowing the options for integrated configuration and diagnostics.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Use the programming tool Automation Studio and its help documentation.
  • Configure hardware functions and set up CPU simulation.
  • Configure the target's network options and use Target Browser to find the target.
  • Create, compile, and transfer project to target.
  • Ladder Diagram will be the language of choice for the basic courses, but the instructor can provide guidance for using Structured Text or ANSI C.
  • Manage variable declaration and data retention.
  • Use standard functions (e.g. compare and compute) and function blocks (e.g. timers and counters) in Ladder Diagram.
  • Store project source files on the target.
  • Utilize common Automation Runtime features, such as cycle time adjustment.
  • Use System Diagnostics Manager, Runtime Utility Center and Automation Studio to troubleshoot hardware issues and diagnostic software bugs.
  • Integrate mapp functionality into your application.
