Modular and clearly structured software is a success factor in modern machine manufacturing. With LASAL machine applications can be implemented quickly and consistently: control programming, visualization, motion control, Safety, diagnostics and remote maintenance are unified on one engineering platform.
Pre-constructed templates simplify and shorten the creation of applications massively. The extensive library is continuously expanded and includes functions such as temperature monitoring, regulators, contouring control, interpolating motion of multiple axes, CNC functions, jerk-limited motion profile and various robot kinematics. LASAL unifies object-oriented programming (according to IEC 61131-3) with graphic representation.
Based on encapsulated software components, program sections can be easily changed and reused. The variants editor, starting from a base project, enables comfortable management of an unlimited number of machine configurations in one project. The different variants or options can be easily activated or deactivated. And thanks to the scripting function, the program code for the respective variant is created with the push of a button – that means high efficiency.
The LASAL Machine Manager ensures clear software structures with multi-CPU solutions. It also regulates the communication of distributed intelligences - who can exchange which data with whom. An important aspect in the era of intelligent factories.
