Control technology in the cloud - useful or not?
Forecasts in automation technology predicting a complete technological break have rarely been realistic. For example, when industrial PCs started to be used as control platforms, many experts predicted that classic control solutions would be completely replaced by central PC-based control technology within the next decade. Current user surveys, on the other hand, show that they use a mix of centralized and decentralized control technology and even tend towards decentralized architectures....
More Transparency and Security: Interview with Dieter Hess and Manfred Werner, CODESYS Group
At the first CODESYS Technology Day in mid-May, Manfred Werner and Dieter Hess got the attention of around 400 participants. They outlined the status of the CODESYS Automation Server, the central component of CODESYS' upcoming automation architecture.
With the power of many cores: CODESYS Multicore on a welding system
Modern control systems are taking on more and more tasks. However, reliability and guaranteed real-time performance must not suffer as a result. The solution lies in powerful control systems with multi-core processors in which the various cores perform dedicated tasks. Thanks to a multi-core capable development environment for programmable logic controllers according to the IEC 61131-3 standard, implementation is now easy.
