Starting from DOPSoft V2.00.04.09 is possible to create an independent and portable execution file (.exe) to avoid the use of DOPSoft in the next download.
Every execution file will be downloaded to the HMI according to the download mode set in the DOPSoft project to decide next download way: USB / Ethernet / Serial.
If the project is password-protected, the password for download will be asked according to the security settings.
To create the execution file, the following steps must be followed:
1. On the menu go to: File> Make exe of Screen Download Data
2. Specify the file name and output folder and click “Make”
4. To download the project file to the HMI, just double click on the generated .exe file after connecting the PC to the destination HMI according to the download mode set in the DOPSoft: USB / Ethernet / Serial. By this way, there’s no need to execute DOPSoft at all
Hope you enjoy this feature with our DOP-B and DOP-W series HMI.

Delta to Highlight its Strengthened Capabilities in Automation and Energy Management Solutions at Hannover Messe 2016 Register now for your free entrance ticket for the Hannover Messe from 25-29 April, Stand A49, Hall 11.
Delta Electronics has showed its products and solutions in the MEE exhibition held in Dubai (1-3 March).
Various products were demonstrated in the booth, including PLCs, HMIs, Drives, Servo and Delta Multi-Pump Solution (DMPS).
Visitors from all around the middle east were present, good connections were made and costumers showed lots of interest in our products.
Due to the fact that oil prices are going down, and most of the projects in the Gulf area are oil and gas related projects, lots of costumers moved their attention to Delta as an economic alternative to other brands.
Problem: our ASDA-A2 servo drive is a very good high-end servo drive, except for the fact that it does not support PROFINET until now, and for one of our potential costumers we needed such functionality.
This document explains the solution that we did for such problems.
System structure: the system is basically to control a load with our ASDA-A2-M servo drive, which has CANOpen communication. The controller is a PROFINET Master (e.g. Siemens S7 PLC).
Here we used a gateway, to bridge the connection between PROFINET and CANOpen, the gateway used was IXXAT CME/ PN from HMS.
ASDA-A2 configuration: the servo drive’s parameters were adjusted to the connected motor, and to be controlled by a CANOpen Master, below are the main parameters for such a configuration:
Control Mode and Output Direction (CANopen Mode)
Electronic Gear Ratio (1st Numerator) (N1)
Electronic Gear Ratio (Denominator) (M)
Communication Address Setting
Transmission Speed (1.0M bits / second)
The ASDA-A2-M CANOpen interface supports up to 4 PDOs duplex (transmit and receive), each PDO has a length of 8 bytes.
IXXAT CME/PN gateway: this gateway can be parametrized using its own software (CANopen Configuration Studio for IXXAT CME-PN 2.1). In the software the ESD file for the ASDA-A2 can be loaded, and the values that need to be transferred are selected. The variables selected for this application are as follows:
Modes of operation
Torque actual value
Current actual value
Position actual value
Velocity actual value
After the configuration has been made, a compilation is done in the software, and then the GSDML file is exported to be used in the PROFINET master as a device .
full screen is recommended
And the last step is to download the configuration to the IXXAT gateway using the USB cable (mini USB port).
PROFINET Master: here in this case a Siemens PLC is used (CPU1516-3 PN), first step in the hardware configuration the GSDML file is loaded, and then the device is inserted in the HW configuration. After inserting the device, it will automatically assign inputs and outputs areas for the mentioned variables, where they can be used later in the PLC program to control the servo drive.
