Description

Almost every machine needs a user interface. Integrated visualization provides controls and components for designing machine visualization applications. Other functions include unit and language switching as well as adding dynamic features. VC4 provides a developer with the ability to create such visualizations.

This seminar is delivered online with a live trainer. Remote desktop access is utilized to assist with debugging as needed.

Prerequisites

SEM210.4A – Automation Studio Training: Accelerated Basics

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.

One optional session of SOT610.5H OR SOT611.5H is included with this seminar. These courses can be taken the week following SEM210.4A or any available time after. Please let your sales partner know which session and date in which you would like to participate.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Use the programming tool Automation Studio and its help system.
  • 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 diagnose software bugs.
  • Integrate mapp functionality into your application.
