Designed by Contec Systems, dataSOFT CONFIG is a unique Windows software application that allows you to reconfigure and customize your PLC’s program and subsequent operation of the CEM Systems without relying on the original Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) vendor for changes to your programming.
NO NEED TO KNOW LADDER LOGIC IN ORDER TO PROGRAM YOUR PLC
Contec’s standard dataSOFT CONFIG ladder logic program contains hundreds of pre-programmed operating sequences which control the sampling, calibration, and housekeeping cycles of your system without requiring the knowledge of PLC ladder logic programming or vendor assistance.
A software companion to Contec’s dataSOFT SUITE environmental data acquisition software, dataSOFT CONFIG has numerous setup windows containing easy to use matrix tables and sequence timing delays.
You simply construct the sequential operating requirements of your PLC by selecting which digital outputs will be energized during each operating sequence and how long to keep the outputs energized before moving to the next sequence.
You can even change when the PLC records zero and span calibration data or to use digital inputs to record the zero and span data from Opacity or Stack Flow Monitors.
Additionally, dataSOFT CONFIG will allow you to shut down the sample pump or to prevent a calibration cycle based upon the presence or absence of digital inputs that may be connected to sample pressure or moisture monitoring devices.
Once you have configured dataSOFT CONFIG, a simple click of the Save button will download the new configuration to the PLC. The PLC ladder logic will automatically configure the PLC’s operation of the CEM to your new requirements.
dataSOFT CONFIG communicates with Allen Bradley’s PLC based hardware families.
