The visualisation software enables visualisation projects to be created and configured simply using the PASvisu Builder. Access to all the data in an automation project, including all process variables and OPC namespaces, means there is no need to enter and assign variables manually, a process that is prone to errors. Information such as the project's check sum or the firmware version of the controller head module can also be called up, for example.
Individual visualisation via tiles:
Selectable styles via CSS3 provide a uniform, consistent image across the project at the click of a mouse. Pre-defined graphic input and display elements, called tiles, already provide all the relevant properties, such as prefix, suffix and error status. There is no need to create and group individual elements manually. The tile is positioned on the configuration page simply via drag and drop and is then filled with the relevant data. Even as the variable name is typed in, the variable is automatically filtered out and simultaneously linked to the tile. That way projects can be handled quickly and without error.
Graphical block diagnostics and simulation:
Other miscellaneous information needed in the visualisation project is also processed automatically. Also, changes in the automation project are synchronised automatically and displayed in the PASvisu Builder. Thanks to automatic synchronisation, users are always working with the latest project status.
Online simulation is not all: offline simulation can also be used: without access to the control system, configuration is simplified using a special offline variable editor, which can be used to set and display values.
Remove access via web:
As HTML5 is used, access is cross-platform and is possible via almost any end device such as PC, tablet or smartphone in the respective web browser. As an example, this facilitates remote maintenance that is based on genuine Client-Server functionality. As a result, remote maintenance can be separated from on-site operation, helping to reduce downtimes.
