    Web-based HMI made easy
    mapp View: where web meets automation
    With mapp View, B&R now offers direct access to the wide world of web technology right from the engineering
    environment. For the first time, automation engineers have all the tools they need to create powerful and
    intuitive HMI solutions – and they don't have to know HTML5, CSS and JavaScript do to it.
    mapp View relies 100% on web standards to ensure content can be viewed optimally on any output device
    or even customized for specific users or user groups.
    Working in a familiar environment
    What makes mapp View unique is the way it integrates web technology right into the engineering environment.
    While mapp View is built on HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, automation programmers never need to
    deal with these languages.
    Reusable elements
    All GUI functionality is encapsulated in modular control elements called widgets, which are simply dragged
    and dropped into place and configured. Since content and layout are separated, designs can be adjusted at
    any time or even used on other machines.
    Automation engineers have all the tools they need to create powerful and intuitive HMI solutions.

  • B&R supports OPC Foundation's real-time working groups OPC UA to expand its scope of applications B&R will be supporting the OPC Foundation's new working groups, whose goal is to add real-time capability to the OPC UA communication standard. This will involve two key additions to the OPC UA standard. The first is a publisher-subscriber model; the other is utilization of the IEEE 802.1 standard for time-sensitive networking (TSN). B&R will be contributing its real-time expertise to the working groups. "The updates to the OPC UA standard will benefit from our years of experience in developing real-time solutions," says Stefan Schönegger, marketing manager at B&R. Higher speeds OPC UA already features a familiar client-server architecture. The publisher-subscriber model will add oneto- many and many-to-many communication that will have decisive benefits for communication speed in large distributed systems. "This is a fundamental requirement for the M2M communication you find in integrated systems such as packaging lines," explains Schönegger. POWERLINK is also based on this same architecture. Real-time capability for the OPC UA standard In order to fulfill real-time requirements, the OPC UA standard will make use of the IEEE 802.1 TSN standard. "At the moment, TSN is still a working title for a group of new IEEE standards designed to provide native real-time capability for the IEEE 802 Ethernet standard," says Schönegger. This would allow for a seamless transition to substantially faster Ethernet standards such as POWERLINK for field-level communication and demanding motion control tasks. Beyond the automation industry, TSN is currently also being evaluated by the automotive and telecommunications industries. "The first cars based on TSN are expected to hit the market in the very near future," reports Schönegger. This would help secure the widespread availability of this technology. In addition to B&R, the new OPC working groups will be also supported by other leaders in the field of automation, as was announced by KUKA on April 13, 2015. Total package: OPC UA and POWERLINK OPC UA already plays a central role in the IT-related areas of modern production systems. "The addition of TSN and the publisher-subscriber model will greatly expand the range of potential OPC UA applications," says Schönegger. Paired with the open standards POWERLINK and openSAFETY, the result is a total package for safe and consistent Ethernet communication all the way down to the sensor level.
  • Web technology meets industrial automation B&R introduces the mapp View HMI solution at the SPS IPC Drives B&R will be taking advantage of this year's SPS IPC Drives to introduce its new HMI solution – mapp View – showcasing for the very first time the full potential of web technology in the Automation Studio software engineering environment. Other highlights on display at the B&R booth (Hall 7 / Booth 206) include a new generation of swing arm operator panels as well as innovative safety solutions involving intelligent light grids. With mapp View, B&R opens up a wealth of new possibilities for designing HMI applications. It gives automation engineers all the tools they need to create powerful and intuitive web-based HMI solutions – without requiring knowledge of HTML5, CSS or JavaScript. Armed for any application The Automation Panel 5000 represents a new generation of swing arm operator panels that raise the bar when it comes to flexibility and modularity. These fully enclosed systems feature IP65 protection and are available in many different variants. Secure remote maintenance Ultra-compact X20 controllers, secure remote maintenance technology and new operator terminals with a multi-touch user interface are just some of the additional highlights being presented. To round it all off, B&R will be introducing brand new safety concepts based on a network-integrated light grid.
  • Utilize braking energy effectively
    B&R expands its ACOPOS P3 servo drive series
    The new 2-axis modules from B&R's ACOPOS P3 series feed braking energy back into the mains. This function
    significantly improves the overall effectiveness of a machine. With just 500 watts of regenerative braking
    power, the function pays for itself in only a year.
    A prime candidate for this function are machine tools, whose headstock spindle drives generate large
    amounts of braking energy that would otherwise go unused. The function is also well suited for conveyor
    systems that move heavy loads vertically. Without power regeneration, not only would the braking energy go
    to waste, but the resulting heat would require additional cooling and consume even more power.
    Regenerative braking is implemented particularly efficiently in the new 2-axis modules from the ACOPOS P3
    series. One of the axes is configured as the feedback path to return excess power to the mains.
    Additional functions with ACOPOSmulti
    Like the new ACOPOS P3, the active power supply modules from the ACOPOSmulti series also support
    regenerative braking. These models also offer other helpful functions such as stabilization of the DC bus
    voltage and compensation of the reactive power.
  • EPSG는 SPS IPC Drive에서 광범위하며, 혁신적인 아이템을 선보였다.

    CODESYS를 사용한 POWERLINK 마스터 솔루션이 SPS IPC Drive에서 공개되었다.  BE.Services(산업용 자동화 S/W 및 임베디드 S/W 서비스 제공업체)는 POWERLINK가  IEC-61131개발 환경에 매우 간단하게 통합될 수 있는 방법을 POWERLINK 부스와 3S-스마트 소프트웨어 솔루션 부스에서 선보였다. 데이터로직의 openSAFETY를 탑재한 라이트커튼 또한 EPSG부스에서 주목해야할 사항이다. 이 솔루션을 사용하여 세이프티 응용기술의 핵심적인 비용절검을 달성 할 수 있다.

    다수의 제어시스템 제공업체는 그들의 컨트롤 개발환경으로 CODESYS를 사용한다. 장비제조업체들은 CODESYS를 사용하여 어플르케이션을 제작할때 실시간 POWERLINK 네트워크라는 혜텍을 누릴 수 있게 되었다. “전세계부터 POWERLINK의 통합에 대한 수요를 보았기 때문에 우리는 CODESYS에 POWERLINK를 통합을 추진하고 있습니다.”라고 BE.Services의 매니징디렉터인 Dimitri Philippe씨는 말한다.


    접근성이 용이하다.

    기술적인 이득을 빠르게 수용하는것을 보장하기 위해 접근성이 용이하다는 것은 절대적인 필요사항이다. 이것이 왜 CODESYS IEC 61131개발 환경과 POWERLINK플러그 인이 CODESYS 온라인 스토어에서 무료로 사용가능한 이유이다. POWERLINK의  커뮤니케이션 스택 또한 무료로 사용할 수 있다. POWERLINK는 개방형 프로토콜이므로, 통신스택은 소스포지의 오픈소스 플랫폼에서 무료로 다운받을 수 있다. BE.Services는 CODESYS에 대한 런타임시스템의 통합을 제공한다.
