The i|config Configuration utility accommodates both function block and ladder logic languages, allowing a single control system to satisfy continuous and discrete requirements. Your database is automatically generated from your 353 loop controller configuration, and your i|ware HMI is automatically generated from the database. To simplify troubleshooting and maintenance, i|config lets you test and monitor your control strategy on-line and make changes that can range from a simple tag name edit, to adding a few function blocks.
One tool supports both function block and ladder logic configuration languages
Existing pre-formatted control strategies speed up configuration
On-line monitoring of configuration values reduces debugging time
Simplified graphical illustration tools provide better understanding of the control strategy and reduce overall design time
i|config's extensive library of algorithms, packages deep control expertise in function blocks pre-configured for a variety of application-specific needs. Because the blocks can be used as is or customized, the library can make configuration as simple as dropping blocks on a sheet, or they can provide a base-line for further development. Cut and paste capabilities make it easier to duplicate all or part of a control strategy.
