PLC and automation systems

PCL ja automaatiojärjestelmät

In CADS Electric Pro, you can manage the automation system’s IOs in the database. You can specify the system configuration; the racks, IO cards, connection boards etc. as well as the input/output-specific connections are managed either in the database, from which the data is echoed into the schemas, or vice versa.

Set the design rhythm based on the project’s needs

Set up the inputs and outputs on the schema or layout drawing without addresses, and then you can complete the field design before even choosing the system. The inputs and outputs without an address get the channels given to them in the database, and this information is automatically relayed into the schemas. This reduces the possibility of errors, and you can set the design rhythm based on the project’s needs.

IOs are imported into CADS Electric in Excel format

The IOs can be imported into CADS Electric in Excel format. This means that the specifications made outside the system can be transferred into the design system quickly and easily. If necessary, you can also export the desired IO data into an Excel file, in which case it can be conveniently transferred into an external environment, such as an automation system or design with PLC software.
