After the remodel

MELARECON is used in industry

We report on the successful implementation of a monitoring project using our MELARECON and the SolidBlue platform. In addition, the controller takes on control tasks and uses CANopen as a bus system to connect a wide variety of sub-distributions. By using schedulers and production templates, the system can now automatically make the appropriate preparations for the successful start of production.

From practice: Create process pictures

In this post, I would like to work with you to complete the dashboard from the previous post in this series. I will show you how to create process images and integrate them into our already created dashboard page.

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.

From practice: Display of process data

In this post I will show you how to create a visualization on SolidBlue. I use my test setup from the previous posts in this series.

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.

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.

SolidBlue: Open data interface

SolidBlue stands for openness. Universal data interfaces make it possible to receive, save, display and evaluate data of any kind. This enables you to view data from different systems in their entirety. Operation is also made easier because switching between different providers, platforms and apps is avoided. The possibilities SolidBlue offers you are shown in this article using a concrete example.
