HVAC Building & Process Automation SL

90,00 €

HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning) Functional components and HTML5 visualisation.
Automate and visualise your entire building technology professionally and independently of hardware: ventilation systems, heat generation, heating circuit distribution, individual room control, room automation, light and blind control

Without purchasing a license (just download), the HVAC Library SL runs for 30 minutes without functional limitations and disconnects automatically (demo).

Description

The HVAC Library SL product contains functional components and HTML5 system macros for creating, for example, heating and ventilation systems but also for room automation and other industrial system technology. There is an added value, above all, in the easy programming and the hardware independence of controllers and EA groups. Extensions such as, for example, MySQL Library, EA drivers and more allow the user a modular coverage of the requirements. The product portfolio is always being expanded with new functions, products and communication links of common bus systems. Extensive training sessions, support and individual service provisions for software creation complete the offer.
Benefit from 30 years of experience in building automation: Development, closely associated with practice, of this library is our aspiration.

Decide for yourself on which controller to run your application - simple, inexpensive automation tasks on a Raspberry Pi with full functionality or professional, fail-safe automation tasks on other controllers - industrial PC or a controller of the 350 producers from the CODESYS device directory.

MySQL Library SL

70,00 €

This Library allows you to connect your CODESYS v3.5 application to a MySQL-Sever database to read and write data from it.

Without purchasing a license (just download), the MySQL Library SL runs for 30 minutes without functional limitations and disconnects automatically (demo).

Description

This Library allows your CODESYS v3.5 application, to connect with a MySQL-Server database. It gives you the opportunity to read and store process data to an external or internal MySQL database, without any 3rd party software or driver. Whether you want to store data for long-term logging, exchange data with 3rd party applications or collecting a mass of machine data for your next IoT project, it’s all possible with our MySQL-Library for CODESYS.
You will be able to connect to a MySQL-Server, which is directly running on the same system, as your PLC (local) or you can also connect to a remote hosted MySQL-Server, anywhere in the world.

MySQL is a fast, easy-to-handle, and lightweight database system and compatible with most of the well-known operating systems.

Features

Supported MySQL-Commands

  • INSERT
  • SELECT
  • UPDATE
  • DELETE, ALTER, DROP, etc.

Database entries can be executed by hand or with a trigger. The runtime speed is depending on the MySQL-Server, connection speed, and runtime system. There are a lot of examples available, how you can use the library.

Romod I/O Modules SL

50,00 €

This library allows you to use Romod I/O devices from the manufacturer Romutec (www.romutec.de) via RS485 COM-Port on supported CODESYS PLC runtimes. The devices can be easily added to the device tree. The configuration of module-specific parameters is done under the device parameters tab, without any programming requirements. All input/output variables can be mapped in the I/O-Mapping section.

Without purchasing a license (just download), Romod I/O Modules SL runs for 30 minutes without functional limitations and disconnects automatically (demo).

Description

 

romod-devices

 

This library allows you to use the Romod I/O modules 16DI, 8DO, 8DO-R, 4DO-R, 8AI and 8AO with supported CODESYS PLC runtimes. It requires an RS485 COM-Port interface and also a Modbus license (mostly included).
The devices can be added to the device tree and also be extended with various romod modules. Variables can be mapped to the program under the I/O-Mapping Tab.

All output modules are local override/indication devices; the state can be monitored and changed. If the device is local overrode/indicated, then it will be shown under the device tree.

There is also a parameter settings window for each module. Different settings as slave-address, Bus-Timeout, send command or cycle request time can be configured under this section. Many specific I/O extended settings are also available for example Negation, two-point-function, limiter, damped function etc. The analog input module allows you to select sensors as PT1000/100, Ni 1000, NTC 10k, etc.
The Romod-Master device is required for configuring the physical hardware COM-Port. Common serial settings can be configured there.

The Hardware modules can be decentral installed (for example in electrical distribution boards). Supported bus cable length for the devices is up to 3937 feet (based on the environmental conditions). Each device address is configurable with dip switches. Serial communication settings as baudrate don’t need to be configured because the devices are supporting “Autobauding”. This feature is decreasing the fault-rate and also the installation time out of the field.

Please note: The modules don’t support real-time requirements.

Dweet Pro Library SL

50,00 €

This is an unofficial library for use with the dweet.io and dweetpro.io service. It’s developed to use with the main features as sending and receiving dweets. The library supports a secure connection between the service and the PLC controller. TLS encrypts all traffic. The dweet service also offers the opportunity to protect your “Thing” with a secret key.

Without purchasing a license (just download), the Dweet Library SL runs for 30 minutes without functional limitations and disconnects automatically (demo).

Description

With this library, you can start your IoT Project within minutes. You can send your data from the field to the cloud or request it. There is no 3rd Party software installation required. The communication is directly established with the Dweet Pro or Dweet Service; both are acting as a cloud gateway. 

Each PLC needs to be registered as a “Thing”. So it’s possible to communicate with different “Things”, no matter if it’s a PLC or other device. Data is exchanged in the open-standard format JSON. So you can integrate the data easily to existing software products. 

The product is coming along with a detailed documentation and a Quick-start guide (https://pfaendergmbh.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/Dweet/overview). So you can start to use this library together with the dweet service within a really short time. The library can be tested without any fees!  

 

 

Establish an industry secure connection between your PLC and the dweet Pro cloud service with TLS. The whole data connection from your PLC to the dweet service is completely encrypted.

 

There are several options, to configure alerts directly in the cloud. Set Real-time notifications that keep you informed. It’s possible to set up E-Mail alerts directly from the Dweet Pro Cloud. Data can also be used to configure SMS or text-to-speech messages from another cloud providers.

 

Store data up to one month, without the need of physical storage.

 

Use cloud services to visualise your data or build it by your own. Connect quickly to freeboard.io and create a cloud visualisation within minutes.

 

Communicate with devices in different locations.

 

For data exchange, the open-standard JSON format is used.
