Harrisburg, PA— Phoenix Contact reports the newest version of its Steeplechase VLC will make PC-based control scalable by providing easy implementation of its new embedded controllers, as well as providing enhancements for project development and maintenance. The company exhibited its products last week at SPS Electric Automation America 2005 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, near Chicago.
Scheduled for release indisplay configurations, replace the traditional PLC with the programming flexibility and easy development available only with PC-based control.
User-friendly techniques for defining, editing, and monitoring I/O are included in this new VLC version. A new connection panel displays a “tree view,” similar to Windows Explorer, which shows PC I/O interfaces, devices connected to them, and I/O tags associated with devices. The tree allows users to easily add, delete, copy, modify, and view any interface, device, or I/O tag. Closely associated with the connection panel are a new connection editor and tag editor. Each of these windows provides complete backward compatibility with previous VLC versions, while simultaneously enhancing productivity by providing new capabilities in conjunction with the connection pane.
