Automation Studio is used to configure and program all B&R automation components. Core issues such as getting a clear overview of all product groups, initial commissioning of a controller, understanding the functions of the runtime environment and using the options for integrated configuration and diagnostics will be shown. Use of IEC programming languages, numerous standard libraries and the integrated help system ensure that nothing is standing in the way of a successful start to the project.

TM223 – Automation Studio Diagnostics

Powerful diagnostic tools are an integral part of software development for a machine that accompany it throughout its service life. Having such tools integrated directly in Automation Studio and the runtime system means always having the necessary data on hand for programming and maintenance.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Overview of integrated diagnostic tools
  • Selecting the correct diagnostic tools
  • Reading system information
  • Operating modes and the logbook
  • Creating user log entries
  • Observing and analyzing process values
  • Reading and writing process values
  • Recording data in a real-time context
  • Analyzing I/O states and forcing
  • Software analysis during programming
  • Debugging and profiling
  • Using variables in programs
  • Web-based System Diagnostics Manager
  • Querying and displaying the operating status
  • Runtime Utility Center

TM246 – Structured Text (ST)

In addition to visual programming languages, the IEC 61131-3 standard also defines the Structured Text (ST) language. Simple yet powerful constructs make structured programming of machine controllers possible.

Objectives and content

  • Structured Text features and editor functions
  • Expressions, assignments and keywords
  • Boolean and arithmetic operations
  • Comparison operators and decisions
  • State machines with the CASE statement
  • Calling functions and function blocks
  • Calling actions
  • Pointers, references and preprocessor
  • Diagnostic functions and debugging
