Connection of software/simulation with actual training equipment/all PLCs

The principle is simple: the USB interface is connected to the PC. The connection to the automation equipment is via standard SysLink connectors. Input and output signals can thus be read into and output from a PC. So that EasyPort can adapt to different situations, we have developed software for the device drivers with a graphical user interface, via which connections can be made.

Control of numerous practical process model

Numerous practical process models can be controlled using any PLC using EasyPort and the EasyVeepR simulation software included in scope of delivery.

EasyPort digital now includes EasyVeep visualisation software, which comes with practical process models.

The process models can be activated via the EasyPort USB using an actual PLC. The practical models are documented and meet a broad range of requirements. The topics covered include the following:

  • Hot water tank
  • Three cylinders
  • Elevator
  • Washing machine
  • 7-segment display
  • Bottling wine
  • Ball sorting system
  • Level crossing with barrier
  • Wind generator
  • Tape recorder
  • Treasure hunt
  • Greenhouse
  • Lock chamber
  • Parking Lot
  • Lamp model
  • Cylinder model
  • Simulator
  • Safe
  • Car alarm system
  • Control panel for cylinders
  • Press with two-hand operation
  • Mobile phone timer (TON)
  • Packaging of cubes - counter
  • Motion detector timer (TOF)
  • Garage door - Pulse-edge control
  • Lifting luggage
  • Control panel 2 - lifting luggage
  • Cylinder motion - signal-edge
  • IO sim
