Software PLC Converts Industrial PC Into a Control System
In this configuration, one core is dedicated to real-time control tasks programmed using the PC Worx automation software in all five IEC languages. The remaining core runs existing programs written in a high-level language or other software and hardware running under Windows. Therefore, programming, visualization, communications and control can be combined in just one device. This can reduce wiring costs, control cabinet sizes and the installation footprint in the plant or system.
