Recently Fränz & Jaeger installed first big e!COCKPIT project.
e!COCKPIT is the new CODESYS3 based integrated programmingsystem developed by WAGO.
The sorting machine at LIBRI (Bad Hersfeld) sorts over 10000 item a day to 42 relations.
The control system takes the tasks:
- Image capture from 3 Sides
- omnidirectional barcode scaning
- control scaning
The products are tracked on the conveyor accurate to within a centimeter. Thereby correct sorting is ensured.
The installation is controled by 5 PFC200 controllers . A WEB capable visualisation is included.
The visualisation shows each controler detail, from light barrier to drives. This makes very fast reactions to malfunktions possible.
Allthough the remote maintanance from Fränz & Jaeger is realized by a safe VPN conection.
The pervious CODESYS 2 based solution was ported to e!COCKPIT successfully. We needed a wekend to finish the installation on site.
The replacement was nessesary because the visalisation was based on the deprecated JAVA-Plugin.
The customer has now a faster browser (JS/HTML) solution. This is furthermore usabel on mobile devices (Tablet/Phone).
Herr Fränz has a summary:
"e!COCKPIT has shown that it is now possible to realize big projects including a mass of different interfaces, as there are AS-Interface, seriell, analog or network. The old-fashioned visualisation can now be replaced with current standards and a fresh design. We are pleased to build up further projetcs with e!COCKPIT."
