Why SUPER PLCs?  
 

Very fast program development cycle

You will discover how incredibly fast and easy you can complete a relatively complex programming job using the Ladder+BASIC language. With the escalating cost of programmers today, shorter development time means greater cost saving for companies.

   

Extremely easy to learn

Our TRiLOGI software, with its built-in real time simulation capability, is used by many colleges to train students in PLC programming. (Click on "Downloads" tab to get the software for free) It often takes less than half an hour to learn to create your own ladder logic program and run a simulation test on your own PC. You can fully evaluate the capability and ease of use of our PLCs with absolutely no risk!

 

Powerful

You get built-in analog I/Os, LCD port, PWM, stepper motor controllers, interrupts, encoder inputs, pulse frequency measurement, real time clock, RS232 ports, RS485 networking port, PID and more! Each Super PLC incorporates an arsenal of built-in hardware that only exists as expensive add-on options on most other PLC-brands. In addition, the built-in BASIC commands greatly simplify the use of these hardware.

             
                                                                                                                       

TCP/IP

Super PLC users are the first ones to be able to remotely program and control their PLCs via the INTERNET using an Internet Explorer or Netscape browser found in any PC. Such capability allows OEMs to remotely troubleshoot or upgrade software for their equipment without spending a fortune to travel to far away locations.

.

 

Dynamic Data Exchange

Super PLC users are also able to collect data remotely via the Internet or via the corporate LAN and have the data stored in Excel Spreadsheet for analysis or charting (requires TRi-ExcelLink software). You can also create your own PLC control GUI applet very easily.

 

Low Cost

The Super PLCs are designed to be embedded into cost-sensitive OEM applications, hence their prices are kept low so much so that some users who are used to paying big bucks for other PLC brands actually thought that it is unreal! You owe it to yourself to discover how the Super PLCs can actually enhance your product capability while helping you save cost at the same time!

       
What about the Programming Software?
   

Most PLCs in the industry are programmed by a highly specialized, well-established programming language called "Ladder Logic". Ladder Logic programming has its strength in handling single bit digital I/O programming, but it is at best an awkward language for data processing where numerical data needs to be manipulated.

Have you tried to develop a communication program, initializing an analog module or tried to develop a non included protocol or function in your current PLC? This is the case when you will value our PLCs

On the other hand, desktop computers are typically programmed by high-level languages such as BASIC, C, PASCAL, C++, Java etc. These powerful programming languages are designed for data processing, but they are not oriented towards flipping single bit digital I/Os.

By combining these two most important branches of programming languages into one single, seamless entity, we had invented the industry first "Ladder + BASIC" language that can easily handle sophisticated tasks with just a few lines of codes. We have also developed a family of M-series Super PLCs that are exclusively programmed in Ladder + BASIC language, using our highly acclaimed TRiLOGI PLC programming Editor, Compiler and Simulator software.

     
    Take a look to our software TL5.1

As you can see, part of the program can be written in Ladder, using normal open and close contacts.

Be aware, this complex program will take only TWO lines since the important tasks can be developed in BASIC language.

The Function #10 ( written in TBASIC) is a "differentiated" function which means that will be executed only once when triggered

     
If we take a close look to the Function #10 we will see that it's a simple program in TBASIC

When you press "Start" and then the button "Greetings" , your PLC will greet you either "Good Morning", "Good Afternoon" or "Good Evening" on its LCD display ( Could be our U$35 MDLCD216 display) depending on the time of the day.

Note: You only need to use the TBASIC language as and when needed as demonstrated in this case. Otherwise, the PLC will happily execute standard ladder logic circuit based on AND, OR, NOT, timers, counters only!

           

TBASIC includes a powerful set of control instructions, that allow easy solution for complex programming tasks.

                 
Some examples of our powerful programming
                 
SETLCD 2,1, " Room Temp=" + ADC(2)*50/4095 + CHR$(223) + "C"
                 

In one single function we would get the analog value of a sensor , connected to the Analog Port 2, do the mathematics and conversion of this 0- 5VDC voltage into a normal temperature range and then show it in Row 2,Column 1 on the LCD Display.

You will obtain:

Room Temp= XX ºC

Could you imagine, just one line to do it all!

                 
TOGGLEIO OUTPUT5
                 

When you use the TOGGLEIO instruction triggered by an input contact, the specified output ( in this case output 5 ) will alternate its state. If it was ON will be turned OFF and viceversa. In other words, every time you press a buttons connected at a single input you can turn on or off an output. No need for separate START- STOP buttons

Have you tried to do this using other programming techniques as ladder, RLL Plus or Stage programming? This require a lot of programming knowledge

                 
                 

FOR I=0 TO 5

DM[I]=READMODBUS(13,8,16+I)

NEXT I

                                           

MODBUS RTU is a non easy communication issue when related to most of the PLCs. With our SuperPLC T100 series and the TBASIC, this is a quite easy work. In the above example the registers from 16 to 21 will be read from the SLAVE 8, thru port #3 on the PLC and stored in memory from DM[0] up to DM[5]. For MODBUS ASCII just change 13 by 3.

MODBUS Protocol couldn't be easier!

By the way, did you know that both ports in our PLCs can talk several protocols different and simultaneously? Even more, with TBASIC you can write any protocol you need or want

                 

   
                        STEPSPEED 1,5000,100 STEPMOVE 1, 100000,20                                                

Incredible for those who work motion control with PLCs!

Just two instructions to define motion profiles on Stepper motors or Servo drives.

The first instruction configures channel 1 to a maximum speed of 5000pps, taking 100 steps to reach the full speed.

The stepper motor is programmed to rotate 100000 pulses and when completed the relay 20 is turned on.

Hey, our PLCs are the only ones with Two motion channels included in starting prices of just

U$188!

PLC Training Course Instructor Comments:

"I use TRiLOGI in the college classroom. I have each student download and install TRiLOGI on their home computer, and I then give them programming assignments to do at home. They individually write, run and debug their PLC programs, and then email their program files to me for testing and grading. Since TRiLOGI will simulate PLC operation off-line, each student is able to obtain hands-on programming and debugging experience without having to wait for their turn on an expensive laboratory PLC. The students enjoy using TRiLOGI because they can see their programs run at home without loading them into an actual PLC, it is easy to learn, and the cost for the off-line version is zero."

NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR OUR SUPER PLCS
 
 
   

You probably know that the TLServer program provided in the TRiLOGI software package already allows the PLCs to be connected to the LAN or the Internet without buying additional hardware. But since TLServer is a software it needs to run on a PC for 24/7 without crashing.

With the XServer, you no longer need any PC since the XServer itself is a standalone computer with firmware that incorporates most of the functionality of TLServer. The XServer allows up to 4 simultaneous TCP/IP connections, hence client programs such as the TRiLOGI/ExcelLink clients or your own Java program can connect to the PLC via the XServer simultaneously.

An XServer can provide TCP/IP connection to a single PLC via its RS232 port, or to as many as 255 PLCs if you connect the XServer to the PLC's RS485 ports via an Auto485 converter.

When connected to a single PLC, the PLC program can command the XServer to send out emails with dynamic real-time contents or to open a TCP/IP connection to a remote TLServer or XServer and communicate with a remote PLC! This is sometime known as "M2M" (machine-to-machine) communication and can vastly expand the control reach of your PLC!

 
 
Ethernet XServer
 
The extremely compact, 1.5"(W) x 2.75"(L) Ethernet XServer lets you add an instant Ethernet port to your M-series PLCs. When connected to your office or home network, it provides a continuously operating TCP/IP gateway to the PLCs to allow for remote programming, monitoring and controling of the PLCs via the LAN or the Internet.
 
 

GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR PLCS USING A WEB BROWSER

What any othe PLC you know will allow to do this at so low cost ?

                                                                                                                 

The XServer can host up to 6 Java applets which can be opened from any Java-enabled web-browsers such as the Internet Explorer or the Netscape Navigator. Currently, all XServers are shipped with a free, generic control panel with some red and green push buttons/lamps and 4 numerical variables as well as a replica of what's displayed on the PLC's LCD display (as shown in the figure to the left).

The user can easily integrate this control applet into their PLC program with customized legends of the push buttons and variables without writing a single line of Java code! This is likely to be fastest way of adding a Web-based HMI to your equipment without learning anything about Java programming! You can even use a PDA such as Pocket PC or Palm with Java support to use the Applet to control your equipment, as shown in the figure on the left.Please read the XServer User Manual to find out more about this wonderful free web-based HMI. Mid to high volume OEM users (more than 200 units per year) may also order custom-made Java Applet to suit your applications.

               
WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS and Wi-Fi LANs
If your company already has a Wireless LAN infrastructure in place, then you can connect the XServer to your Wireless LAN easily by means of an inexpensive Wireless Ethernet bridge, such as the WET11 made by Linksys. All you need to do is to first set up the WET11 to integrate into your Wi-Fi network, and then just connect a CAT5 cable between the WET11 and the XServer Ethernet port and your XServer (along with your PLCs) will instantly become a member of your Corporate LAN! Imagine yourself walking on any place and looking to your DATA in your wireless pocket PC or PDA
