Prog & Control Engineering
Program and Control Engineering provides a suite of solutions that allow the user to virtually program, validate and simulate manufacturing systems for the virtual commissioning of production facilities.
DELMIA Smart Device Builder
Define Devices for use in Controls Engineering
DELMIA SmartDevice Builder (SDB) is used to create device for use in controls engineering (SmartDevices) by adding Input/Output connections and behavior logic. SmartDevices may be as simple as an automatic clamp or as complex as an entire workstation. Once created and validated, these SmartDevices can be saved to a resource catalog for use by downstream controls engineers as they author and validate manufacturing controls logic.
- Creation of SmartDevices
- Author logic libraries of block or function
- Validation of SmartDevices
Creation of SmartDevices (logic attached to a mechanical device)SmartDevices are input device (i.e. sensors) and output devices (such as automated clamps, transfer stations, etc.) that are connected to a Programmable Logice Controller (PLC) or other logic controller equipment. Using DELMIA SmartDevice Builder, users can assembl geometry and assign kinematics, define input and output connections, define the devices nominal behavior. Additionally, a user can define an entire workcell/line of multiple SmartDevices; SmartDevicesStations.
Author libraries of logic and devicesLibraries of behavior logic (i.e. block and functions only) as well as predefined resources (i.e. conveyors and sensors) can be defined and managed. Downstream users are able to take advantage of these libraries when defining workstations or complete manufacturing lines. The implementation of libraries of SmartDevice logic and/or SmartDevices help an enterprise create and maintain their manufacturing standards within a single plant or across an extended enterprise.
Define SmartDevice logic using standard graphical languagesDELMIA SmartDevice builder employes the industry control logic standards SFC (IEC61131-1) and Block(IEC61499) to define the device logic.
Validation of SmartDevicesUtilizing DELMIA SmartDevice Builder, engineers are able to validate their work with tools such as IO monitoring; internal signals forcing; logic highlighting; user interaction on the 3D model during simulation; and trace plotting of IOs and signals.
