North American packaging machinery users and OEMs appreciate the clarity of familiar ladder logic programming. But as machine functionalities become more sophisticated, ladder programs can become too complicated, even when supplemented by function blocks. Because modular application (mapp) technology from B&R maintains familiar, IEC-compliant ladder and function block programming – except with mapp components– more time is spent on configuring rather than programming.
With mapp Technology, machine control can be accessed and diagnosed down to the function block level without requiring dedicated software, special training or access to the source code.
To see first-hand how mapp technology can cut programming time by two-thirds, while simplifying recipe changes, diagnostics, integration, and field modifications.
