MELARECON loves S7 protocol

Integration of S7 communication

New application scenarios are made possible by implementing the S7 protocol. Target and actual values can now also be exchanged with a SCADA system or HMI device. The data provided on the S7 side can be configured via an interface.

New screen mirroring

Screen mirroring optimization

SolidBlue makes it possible to view and operate the screen of connected MELARECON devices live. Above all, this supports the service staff in helping the customer on site. In SolidBlue’s latest update, screen mirroring has been revamped with new features.

Cloud IO security

Cloud IO! Error security

In this third part of the series “Cloud IO!” an example shows which security measures are available. The entry shows you how an abort in communication can lead to an error message. It also shows how you can parameterize safe input states in the error state.

From practice: MELARECON as an intelligent I/O device

From practice: MELARECON as an intelligent I/O device

In this article I would like to show how to set up a trend recording with a MELARECON IO. I also connect the device to SolidBlue and show what additional possibilities this intelligent I/O module can offer.

Cloud IO principle

Cloud IO! Use as hardware

In this second part of the series “Cloud IO!” an example shows how you can use Cloud IO as physical hardware. The article shows you how you can transfer the state of a button to SolidBlue and use it on another MELARECON device as a digital input for a lighting group of a MELARECON Lighting.

From practice: MELARECON as an I/O device

In this article I would like to show how to use the MELARECON IO as a complete CANopen node with a PLC. This is illustrated by a practical example and everyone is welcome to take part in.

Cloud IO principle

Cloud IO! So what´s that?

With the MELARECON it is possible to exchange any data regardless of manufacturer and location. Furthermore, these data points can be made available to the peripherals, which means that they behave like inputs or outputs of an I/O module. In this first post I would like to explain the settings and options in more detail.

Trend evaluation

MELARECON: Measured values – logging and display

Measured values are stored both locally on the MELARECON and on SolidBlue. The measured values to be recorded can be changed and expanded at any time via an Excel interface. You can find out how this all works in this article.

MELARECON: Language system that can be used internationally

Our MELARECON offers a completely customizable, reusable language system for a total of three configurable language profiles and can therefore be used internationally. The dealer or system installer can add free text to these language profiles. Changed translations are synchronized with SolidBlue. Inscriptions of, for example, setpoint entries on SolidBlue are therefore always identical to the entries on the display of the MELARECON itself.

MELARECON: First steps to the cloud

Connect a MELARECON to SolidBlue in just two steps. This requires valid access data and assignment to a customer. Which settings are to be made where? This is explained here quickly and simply.
