On this channel we’ve extolled the virtues of variable-based ladder logic programming with its User-Defined Function Blocks (UDFBs). In this hands-on session, we’ll start with an analog processing routine developed using register-based ladder logic and transform it into a variable-based UDFB. You’ll not want to miss this session where we demonstrate how to efficiently re-use
This week is our fourth and final installment in our series on Cscape IEC 6-1131 languages. Sequential Function Chart is another graphical language - this time patterned around a traditional flow chart. It can be extremely useful as you define the steps, transitions and actions of your applications. One of the great things about Sequential
In the next installment of our series on Cscape IEC 6-1131 languages - we focus on Function Block Diagram. Function Block Diagram is a graphical programming language which allows you to easily read and conceptualize your logic. It also allows you to represent several lines of code in a single block - and establish connections
This week we take a look at Structured Text in Cscape. While not as popular or prolific as Ladder Logic, Structured Text is uniquely powerful - and features a more "computer language" look and feel. If you have a computer science background - it can quickly help you get comfortable as you program in a
At least 30 years after its predicted demise – Ladder Logic is here to stay. And Horner Automation continues to provide options to automation programmers who choose to program their control systems using this traditional language. In this session we’re going to help customers get started using the Ladder Logic editor in the IEC 6-1131
More Cscape users than ever before are converting their OCS applications to variable-based advanced ladder programming. Along with UDFBs and structures they are utilizing arrays. What are all the different ways arrays can be used and exploited? In this technical session we will show you how to do just that. WATCH NOW...
