 How to create a Blog Entry

The AXC F XT IB ( article nr. 2403018) module is a left side connectable module for the AXC F 2152, that allows you to use interbus modules with the PLC next controller.

 

If you are interested I can provide you an example PLCnext project (see email link below this blog), this uses the 'Auto Reading functionality' to detect the modules that are connected on the interbus.

A certain amount of possible interbus modules is already integrated in the 'Physical_IBS_ILC' Function block, but further in this makersblog I will explain how you can add more interbus devices for your own project to this FB.

This article describes how the SQLite database engine allready installed on PLCnext Controllers could be used to store data provided via the Global Data Space (GDS). The database enables the storage of process data in a standardized way and could be exportet to other systems with SFTP. 

Prerequisites

The Sample Runtime C++ project on Github has been updated with more features and a completely new documentation structure. The project now includes a step-by-step "getting started" guide to building your own runtime for PLCnext Control in C++, starting with a simple "Hello PLCnext" application.

The term "runtime" is used to describe a specific type of PLCnext application. PLCnext runtime applications usually provide an alternative to the real-time control components provided by the Automation Runtime Platform (ARP) - i.e. the Execution and Synchronisation Manager (ESM) and the Embedded Common Language Runtime (eCLR).

Check out the project on Github, and let us know what you think.

A new PLCnext Engineer library app has been added to the PLCnext Store - Bus Conductor

This app can be used to configure a local PLCnext Control I/O bus, containing either Axioline or Inline I/O modules, without the need to hard-code the specific I/O configuration either directly in .tic files, or indirectly using PLCnext Engineer.

This app can be used in any application where the precise I/O configuration is not known at design-time, or must be changed dynamically at run-time. Examples include:
