Today’s guest Jim Hausch has been an automation professional for 20+ years. Jim has earned the respect of his customer-base as a trusted partner – always keeping their best interests in mind. And as you can imagine - Jim has been involved in a lot of interesting applications. He’s also a really interesting guy! Join
User Access is the ability to control what the operator sees and has the ability to modify at run-time - depending on their individual authorization level. We covered that topic pretty thoroughly in an earlier Livestream. But in that earlier session - user credentials (User Name, Password) were shown hard-coded in Cscape to maintain WebMI
Horner Solutions is at it again! In this Livestream, we take a first look at the latest ready-to-install, no programming required product from Horner Solutions – an Analog Totalizer. This device that measures flow and calculates volume is currently being displayed at the WEFTEC water industry show in Chicago. We will be joined by Nate
As Control Engineers - not only are we busy people, but there aren’t nearly enough of us these days. So especially now - we’re having to delay or even cancel projects because we just don’t have the time to get to them. At Horner - we’re trying to help by providing more pre-programmed, “off-the-shelf” solutions.
Automation Engineers can sometimes use a little help. And the help needed varies day-to-day - help with an existing product, help learning a new product, help selecting components, help components share data. It’s all part of application solving - and it is the everyday life of an Automation Specialist like Andrew Jagger from Powermation. In
When adding an Encoder to a Control System - there have always been integration options. There’s the traditional Line Encoder with an A-Quad-B interface, along with Fieldbus options like CANopen, Ethernet IP and more. But now those options also include IO-Link - newly supported in OCS through 2-channel and 4-channel IO-Link Masters. Join us for
System Registers are extremely useful and not nearly as well-known as they should be. In one of our more popular topics back in July - we covered three examples of System Registers that more users should be aware of and utilize. This month - we're back at it with three more examples - one which
Cscape’s Standard IEC logic. Cscape’s Enhanced IEC logic. What is Horner talking about? What are the differences between the two, and is Enhanced IEC’s extra capabilities worth it to you? During this Livestream, we will help you answer that question while we “de-mystify” a sometimes confusing aspect of Cscape’s logic capability. WATCH NOW...
For some Automation Engineers - one of the key advantages of the Structured Text (ST) languages is its handling of math instructions. This gives ST the ability to elegantly and efficiently handle even complex algorithms with minimal lines of code. In this Livestream we will perform an extensive review of ST Math instructions - including
For Machine Control and especially Process Control applications - PID is a basic building block for Automation Engineers. We have covered PID extensively on this channel - but not specifically as it relates to Cscape’s IEC Editor. The Cscape IEC editor offers some unique capabilities over its Advanced Ladder option - namely Floating Point PID.
