Software Upgrade Integrates Controllers
Among enhancements of this upgrade is the ability to use tags with Allen-Bradley controllers in such a way that they can be named with descriptive text that the programmer chooses, rather than having tag names based on PLC memory addresses. This enables the vendor’s HMI to be used in an established Allen-Bradley process without disrupting the existing controller program. Also added into the new software are 26 new communication drivers. Included is a protocol for the new Siemens S7-1200 PLC.
