MOSAIC Safety Controller Documentation

The MOSAIC Modular Safety Integrated Controller can be programmed for your safety control application. Steps to programming our MOSAIC include writing the program, verification, simulation, downloading and monitoring. Documentation has been included in this controller software that will save you hundreds of hours.

Our first program included writing, verifying, simulating and monitoring our MOSAIC Safety emergency stop switch and status indication. We will now look at the reports and documentation that we can obtain by our Mosaic Safety Designer software (MSD). We will also look at ways that we can verify our existing program. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

C-More EA9 HMI Series Panel Object List Indicators

The C-More HMI Panel software uses virtual components called Objects. These objects are programmable to simulate the functions that you require on your automation project. Pushbuttons, switches, meters, and graphs are just a few of the objects that are available to you.

We will now look at the object indicators that we can use with our HMI panel. The indicator objects that are available on the C-More EA9 are Indicator Light, Valve Indicator, Numeric Display, and Multi-State Text Indicator. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

MOSAIC Safety Controller First Program Part 2

The MOSAIC Modular Safety Integrated Controller can be programmed for your safety control application. Steps to programming our MOSAIC include writing the program, verification, simulation, downloading and monitoring.

In part 1, we wrote, verified and simulated our program. Our first program has an emergency stop switch with status indication. We will now be using the MOSAIC Safety Designer software (MSD) to download and monitor our program. The wiring and indication lights on our MOSAIC M1 safety controller will also be discussed. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

BRX PLC HTTP JSON Instructions

One of the features of the BRX Series PLC is the ability to expand its capability to fit your application. Software and hardware changes are ongoing so the PLC can grow with your needs. Communication is something that the BRX PLC can do very well. As part of the internet of things (IoT), the BRX will share and exchange data. You can also refer to this as the industrial internet of things. This will suit several industrial applications.

The Do-more Updates Release 2.5.2 on April 22, 2019, has introduced new instructions. Here are the instructions that we will be using:
HTTPCMD – HTTP Request / Response with Server (BRX only)
JSONPARSE – Parse JSON Text (BRX only)
We will be using these instructions to read the weather conditions from a website. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
