Automatic Hardware Configuration
Many customers have asked us in the past which module they should choose for their safety plc and application. Very often the customers do not have time to understand the complicated product abbreviations of manufacturers. They either have to invest hours to understand the product keying or to call an expert. Usually the user wants to set up the product in a short time and make first tests with the system.
Wieland Electric has identified this requirement and developed a very user friendly programming software. With the new samos® PLAN 6 you can choose between automatic and manual configuration. With the automatic module configuration you do not have to care about hardware at first. You can just start inserting sensors, function blocks or actors on the logic editor and program your safety function. This matches the workflow recommended in TÜV proven Certified Electrical Safety Engineer trainings offered by Wieland Electric.
Of course the users can modify their hardware in the manual mode or optimize the wiring concept before or afterwards.
Flexible thanks to multi-screen feature
Users can dock, undock or attach working windows in samos® PLAN 6 or detach each window from the main window. In that way it is possible to organize the workspace individually and adapt them such that programmer feels himself comfortable. This layout can be saved for future projects to be reused again.
Normally it is very difficult to work with many logic pages, online-editor or reports on one screen. At that point you can see many pages at once or work with many displays thanks Multi Screen feature.
Flexible programming interface reduces time effort, boosts the efficiency and minimizes possible user mistakes.
Faster thanks to easy handling
Users can resort to an ample library with more than 40 certified and field-tested function blocks - without any additional programming input.
samos® PLAN 6 disposes of numerous interfaces and is compatible with all Windows operating systems, including Windows 10, which makes the software not only future-oriented but also especially flexible.
In addition, users may increase the tool's functionality by specifying and administrating sensors and function blocks in the corresponding libraries. Even complex safety tasks can be programmed with ease, because all inputs and outputs and up to 300 function blocks can be used without any restriction in any individual project.
Cost effective thanks to integrated motion control
For the technical departments like electrical construction, electrical planning, research or development, Wieland Electric offers the brand new innovation in the field of safety with the samos®PRO COMPACT PLUS module.
With the software samos® PLAN 6 you can use the new functions like safe limited speed and standstill monitoring according to EN 61800-5-2.
Maintenance friendly thanks to various diagnosis methods
Moreover, samos® PLAN 6 facilitates the remote maintenance of safety controllers without any additional effort. Thanks to the integrated online diagnostics and system logbook, expensive maintenance work can be avoided.
The programmable safety functions can be tested on the PC in advance. This feature is attributable to the simulation function of the integrated logic analyzer, which also ensures improved functional safety later on during actual operation.
Integration into industrial networks can be easily implemented as industrial Ethernet and fieldbus protocols are already integrated into samos® PRO COMPACT with a convenient tool.
A particularly convenient feature of samos® PLAN 6 is the configurable documentation function which, at the push of a button, generates a standard-compliant report.
