Presentation of XBT-L1003/L1004 software

Micro automation platform

Magelis development software

XBT-L1003/L1004 development software is used with the whole range of Magelis terminals to create operator dialogue applications designed for controlling automated systems. XBT-L1003/L1004 software runs on PC compatibles equipped with Windows 95 or NT 4. operating software. Applications created using XBT-L1003/L1004 software are independent of the protocol used; it is possible to use the same operator dialogue application with all the different PLCs offered by the main market suppliers.

XBT-L1003/L1004 software is the only configuration software package for the Magelis range. It is used to create various types of page easily : Application pages (can be interlinked) Alarm pages Help pages Recipe pages Etc They can contain all sorts of variables and graphic objects, which are either predefined in the XBT-L1003/L1004 software, or created using other applications and then imported (bitmap format, etc). Various properties can be assigned to them : min-max limits, colour, movement, weighing, etc. XBT-L1003/L1004 software can be used to configure the function keys to activate commands on the machine or call application pages. It can also be used on the graphic terminals to import the PL7 or Concept PLC symbols database. Sophisticated diagnostic functions are available on the TXBT-F graphic stations.

Simulation on PC compatible
XBT-L1003/L1004 software offers the option of controlling all your operator dialogue applications from the design office without the use of graphic terminals and PLCs. The following can be tested using the simulation program and the keyboard on a PC compatible : Navigation between pages Entry of variables Display of variables Simulation of an alarm

Using the function keys

The operator terminals and graphic stations have two types of function key : static keys and soft keys. 1 Static keys These are defined for the whole application. They may have the following functions : - page access - latching memory bits - toggling memory bits (ON/OFF)

2 Dynamic keys These are associated with one page. Their role can be reassigned or changed from one page to another. They may have the following functions : - page access - latching memory bits - toggling memory bits (ON/OFF) - positioning on a data entry field A label (bitmap image) is assigned to each key which may vary from page to page.

On touch-sensitive terminals, the touch-sensitive zones access the same functions as dynamic keys on keypad terminals.

Screen windows
XBT-L1003/L1004 software is used to design page contents in WYSIWYG format (What You See Is What You Get) : anything created using the software is displayed in exactly the same way on the operator dialogue terminal screen. To assist the designer, the software offers a display unit or a virtual screen depending on the type of terminal.





Model pages (1)

Model pages, created by the designer, are pages whose graphic format (text, images or static objects) applies to all other pages in the same family. There are three types of model page : Application Alarm Help

Alarm pages
Alarm pages indicate any faults in the process. The advantage of alarm pages lies in their event-triggered display : During operation - When a fault occurs, it is often the consequence of other faults. The priority levels enable the terminal to display the most important fault, the one presenting the highest risk to the process. - The occurrence of any fault is time and date stamped. During maintenance operations - The terminal memorises the faults in sequence (log) making it easy to find the cause of the fault.

Help pages and help windows (1)

Help pages and windows can be associated with application or alarm pages. Help windows can be associated with any variable field.
