B&R Industrial Automation: Advanced system diagnostics via the Web
B&R’s latest version of their System Diagnostics Manager (SDM) includes a range of powerful new diagnostic functions providing access to information about system hardware and software from anywhere in the world.
Ready-made diagnostic applets can be easily integrated directly into
applications. Since all service functions necessary for a machine or
systems are already integrated in the System Diagnostics Manager, it can
be launched from any PC without any installation whatsoever. The only
requirement is a conventional Web browser. The appearance of the System
Diagnostics Manager can also be individually customized to match the
look and feel of the machine or systems manufacturer who is using it. Users can quickly access current drive values such as speed, position,
enable status or the status of onboard inputs. An axis error list also
provides information in table form about errors that are still
outstanding as well as those that have already been acknowledged. SDM
can also be used to easily access and operate oscilloscopes that are
integrated in drives.
