Innovation Talk: PLC Productivity Tools - Sponsored by Schneider Electric

When:  Jul 21, 2021 from 10:00 to 11:00 (CT)

Who do you know that would be interested in learning about PLC productivity tools? Make sure they sign up for this hands-on demonstration with Schneider Electric, which will introduce two productivity tools:  EcoStruxure Control Engineering (ECEng) and Asset Link. 

In just 45 minutes, you’ll learn how you can:

  • Reduce design and commissioning times
  • Increase the quality of your PLC and PAC programs
  • Free up your time by automating tedious tasks, thus reducing overall task-related costs
  • Minimize risk related to obsolescence and loss of intellectual property

There will be ample time for  Q&A, so bring your questions!

Know someone who would be interested in attending this session? Invite them! This session is open to all.

 About the Tools

The ECEng tool has four components:

  • Verification - Tool that allows the user to verify conformity of a control program to a set of programming rules that you create
  • Converter – Automatic conversion of a PLC program into another PLC format or C Language
  • Documentation – Automatic generation of documentation and workflow
  • Monitoring – System level support for troubleshooting in operation

The Asset Link tool enables engineers to create a fully integrated control system to reduce design and commissioning time to deliver long-term system consistency. Asset Link analyzes your control project and reads the configuration information: (Function Blocks), data structures (Variables) and meta data (Comments and Initial Values). It generates assets in AVEVA System Platform, with configured attributes and addresses reducing engineering time by 20%.
