MODBUS TCP communication between C2000 and AH500 in speed mode

Modbus RTU is a famous layer 2 fieldbus protocol used in wide range of applications since the mid 80’s and it has its encapsulation in a Ethernet frame, on TCP/IP protocol of layer 4 – 3 of OSI model. It can be used on Ethernet networks though a logic IP address, Modbus TCP uses the same function codes of RTU. The main advantage is that it is faster and can be used to send or receive data through any Ethernet device such as switches and routers in different topologies like star, tree or other line topologies using TCP/UDP/IP protocols in Layer 3-4. It can be installed in Standard 10, 100 or 1000 Mbit/s Ethernet technology based on copper cables, fiber optics or wireless standards can be used. Number of stations is almost infinite and it can go up to a speed of 1.5 Kbyte per telegram frame.

DPIDE: Advanced PID algorithm for AH500 PLC

Delta AH500 PLC programming instructions for PID algorithm.

Instruction code: DPIDE (API 0708)

DPIDE Block description

Explanation of the DPIDE instruction:

The PID algorithm is implemented only when the instruction is executed.

PID  stands for Proportional, Integral, Derivative and is widely applied to mechanical, pneumatic and electronic equipment.

For a detailed explanation of DPIDE parameters, please refer to the following file: DPIDE Explanation

Application example:

Before the instruction DPIDE is executed, the setting of the parameters should be complete. When M1 is OFF, the MV is 0, and the MV is stored in D200. When X0.0 is switched OFF, the instruction is not executed, and the previous data is unchanged.

DPIDE Block example

The PID algorithm: When PID_MODE is set to 0 (false), the PID control mode is in automatic control mode.

When PID_MODE is set to 1 (true), the PID control mode is in automatic tuning mode. After the tuning of the parameters is completed, PID_MODE is set to o (false) automatically.

You can download the example program from here

Hannover Messe 2013 summary

Dear all, That´s all for this year!
It has been a pleasure to all of you who comes to our booth, and the one who can´t don’t hesitate to come next year.
But If some of you want to be aware of what we bring this year, keep reading this post.

In first place, this was our booth this year!
Plenty of space, don’t you think?

THis is our new three axis in one solution (ASDA-M) with brand new HMI with PLC included (HMC Human Machine Controller)
Good solution for 3 to 6 axis
3 axis HMC solution

Then we present new IES (Industrial Ethernet Switches) products, with the today and tomorrow solutions.
Managed, unmanaged and wireless technology for our partners.
DVS and AH500 solutions

And If you never see it,get used, because our middle size PLC AH500 is here to stay!
Able to have 4052 local I/O and 128000 remote I/O, this is going to be Delta PLC Future.

And in Inverters a part from the crane an HVAC solutions, give your welcome to the Elevator solution, really soon on the market
Elevator solution

And this was, our star in the booth, it seems a lot of people is interested in our linear motor solution.
So take a look on that video! nice eh!

In behalf of all delta team, be welcome to come next year
