Samos PLAN v1.2 from Treotham Automation is the control software for Wieland’s Samos PRO modular safety products.
A variety of Samos PRO safe function modules enables the setup of complex safety applications, allowing users to monitor all kinds of parameters. Samos PLAN v 1.2 control software is suitable for use in Industrial Ethernet environments and in fieldbus systems using the PROFIBUS DP or CANopen protocol.
The control system is programmed intuitively and easily using Samos PLAN, a programming tool with graphical user interface for the configuration and parameterisation of inputs and outputs. No special knowledge of PLC programming languages is required. The finished application program is saved on the removable program media Samos Memory directly in the system, and will thus be available inside the control cabinet even after replacement.
Tabs and windows, in a familiar browser-style arrangement, enable users to navigate the software easily. The structure of a Samos PRO system, consisting of the various hardware modules as well as the configuration of the inputs and outputs and the connected elements, are displayed in the Hardware Configuration view. The function logic can be configured by means of logic function blocks and application-specific function blocks in the Logic Editor view.
Complete information on the currently loaded project and all the settings, including the logic programming and wiring, is available in the Report View, while stored error messages from a connected Samos PRO system are displayed under ‘History’ in the Diagnostics view.
Samos PLAN v 1.2 control software allows “simulation” of safety function which is first of it’s kind in configurable safety system. It allows users to test the safety program on bench without any hardware connections. It also allows system integrators to check the validity of program before handing over the program to their clients.
Samos PLAN v 1.2 control software also allows limited forcing of inputs/outputs for testing purpose prior to commissioning.
