Succesful Application: Electric Concrete Truck

This is a new application for our Netherlands distributor Innomotion.
The idea is to make a concrete truck more economic and silent.

Normally the drum is turned with diesel power (hydraulics) from the truck.
Now the drum is loaded at the factory on electric power (cable) and on the road a small generator is supplying just enough power for slow turning and unloading of the truck.

It will save fuel but most of all were possible the truck can unload on the cable so in the innercities there is less pollution on the building site and less noise.

Inside the big cabinet there is a C2000 45KW delta PLC and HMI.
Nice eco-project Innomotion!
Dank u wel

HMI new Instruction: Grid Box

Do you ever work with huge recipe?
If you did, you will know how uncomfortable is sometimes.

So in this case our programmers trying to make our life easier, they develop the Grid Box tool.
As you can see in the video below makes the Recipe edit much more simple.

But because to manage this tool is not easy, here below you can find the video example together with it’s technical announcement.

Grid Box (DOP Program + Technical Announcement)
I hope it will be useful for you all!

Announcement: Delta PLC and HMI new software release

Complete PLC and HMI software update ready for your computers!
All the announcements with the new stuff are compressed together with the software in the same .zip
So you don’t need to download separatelly.

Succesful Application: DVP20PM + DOPB-PS and G-Code download feature

Today, were going to talk about motion control.
There´s a PLC not released in many countries, but capable to manage up to 3 axis using step and direction control, is called DVP20PM or PM series.

20070817-20PM

This PLC needs special software called PMSoft, available on the web for free, as always.
This software a part from be able to program DVP20PM, it have the capability to work with G-Code files

PM-Soft Software

The G-Code files are a codified files that transform a Autocad file into a motion control trajectories, making the programming of motion control systems really easy.
Thanks to that codification, you can cut a difficult wood profile for example, designed previously using Autocad, and avoiding the hard PLC programming work to the engineer.

The problem that customer use to have with DVP20PM is when customer want to change the cutting profile of their product, because in that occasions, the Computer is needed, and not always our customer have a computer on the machine, isn’t it!

G-Code DVP20PM Download

Here, is where appears our new DOP-PS models, already available in EMEA region.
With this HMI´s your customer have the capability to change the G-Code profile only with one USB disk, following the next process:
1. Create Autocad File
2. Transform to G-Code and copy to USB disk
3. Connect the USB Disk to the DOPB-PS and download it to the 20PM
4. Run the program!

According to that, our HMI team prepares for us the complete following example where we´re going to cut an Scorpion picture profile into our 20PM.

You can download the HMI and PLC programs, and a nice pdf detailed explanation of how they create this application in our FTP Delta application guide folder

DVP20PM + DOPB-PS and G-Code download feature example

As you should understand this really simple kind of CNC tool could be applied to many kind of applications, from Wood cutting, plasma, or gluing, to stone grinding or even metal cutting!
Don´t hesitate to share your experiences with us.

And really soon same functionality to DVP10MC the future CANopen motion controller from Delta!

Successful Applications: Barcode Reader with USB Interface

Many of you ask me for Barcode application.

Probably in all the factories of the world, is necessary to codify the items produced in some central computer.
And the most typical way is using barcodes, I am pretty sure that all of you already seen some.

In the past, the Barcodes readers sent the information to the computer/HMI using RS232 serial port, but obviously the interface has changed lately to USB or wireless readers.
According to that, we would like to share our experience with the following factory configuration

On the following link you can find the technical announcement with the explanation of the program, and the program example too.

Announcement – DOPSoft v1.01.02 release

New DOPSoft version!

And this version is ready for all the new HMI ready to be released this Xmas dates on Europe:
DOPB03S211 (new small HMI)
DOPB03E211 (new Ethernet small HMI)
DOPB07S401K (7 inch Button HMI)
DOPB07PS515 (7 inch Professional model)

This version comes with new eRemote and eServer versions completing the HMI suite.
Where in my opinion the most important improving is the HMI web browser function.

Don´t hesitate to check point per point all the improving on the following technical announcements
Technical Announcement – DOPSoft v1.01.02
Technical Announcement – eServer 1.00.18
Technical Announcement – eRemote 2.00.05

The software you can find it as always in our website or our FTP site.
And to make it easy we put together the 3 software in one suite to make it easy to download.
I hope you will enjoy it.

Sucsesful Applications – How to communicate with ABB ACS550

In a perfect world, all our customers should ask for Delta inverters in their machines.
But because we have what we have, the post from today is to help you to communicate ABB ACS550 Inverter to Delta PLC or Delta HMI (via Modbus).

This are the two posibilities we suggest in this tutorial:

And in the following link you will find this tutorial.
Delta’s Products communication with ACS550

Let us know you experience, and don’t hesitate to convince your customer to use Delta for the next machine!!
they won’t regret!

HMI – HMI – PLC – PLC Communication Example (Multidrop)

Another useful Ethernet application with our new HMI´s is the multi-drop connection.

As you can see in the picture configuration, Multi-drop means have 2 mirror HMI´s where can be used and all the actions in one HMI, will be mirrored on the other one.
To do this, we need as always one master and one slave, or with the proper words, one Host and one Client.

Where our customers use Multidrop? The typical applicaion use to be a huge machine with several control points, printing machine, Parking, etc…

If you are interested follow the tutorial.

1. HMI Host configuration

2. Confiurate IP addresss of Host and client on the same Range

3. HMI Client configuration

You can download the full tutorial and some example on the following link.
HMI-HMI-PLC-PLC Multi-drop configuration

And as always don´t hesitate to let us know your commentaries

Announcement: New DOPSoft Manual

Few days ago we release the new Application and Operation PLC Manual.
This time is turn for HMI.

New HMI Software requires new manual.
In this manual you will find explanations and examples all of them related to new DOPSoft.

You can freely download this huge manual (110Mb) form the Delta Website or our FTP.

HMI – PLC Communication Example (Ethernet)

It´s been a long time since we post the last communication example.
And this time, taking advantage for the new coming soon release of DVS (Unmanagged Ethernet Switches) and new DVP-SE (PLC with Ethernet Embeded), we decide to show everybody how to communicate one PLC and one HMI trought Ethernet.

To make it easy for everybody, even the ones without English skills.
We thought the best will be to show everybody using video tool.

Full screen recommended

And If you need the HMI program, don´t hesitate to download it here

By the way, We´re planning to put all communication links in one page to easy link to everybody.
