- Modular and reusable
- Predefined components
- Client-server technology
With the Engineering Platform LASAL, you are provided with an integrated and user-friendly tool set for all phases of machine design: project development, control programming (CLASS) visualization (SCREEN and web-based with LASAL VISUDesigner), motion control (MOTION), Safety (SAFETY), simulation, initial start-up, service, diagnostics and remote maintenance (SERVICE) of the machine and system in the field.
LASAL combines object-oriented programming (IEC 61131-3 standard) with graphic representation and makes mechatronic engineering possible: Real machine components can be represented by software objects.
In the approach of Industry 4.0 and Smart Factories, the LASAL Machine Manager has the data flow for distributed intelligences in multi-CPU concepts firmly under control. In addition, the LASAL OPC UA Server enables manufacturer- and platform-independent data exchange directly on the controller.
The bundling of all automation tasks in one modern object-oriented design environment simplifies project development and programming enormously. The complex can be simply implemented and structured. In addition to minimizing the development times and therewith the costs, simple maintenance resulting in the sustainable value of your software is counted among the convincing arguments for using our all-in-one engineering tool.
Object-oriented programming with graphic representation provides a clear project structure as well as maximum modularity and reusability. Through inheritance, new versions of machine components can be implemented with minimal programming and testing.
Machine applications are simply realized, since the tested function modules (objects) can be combined using the toolkit principle. The quality of the software increases and maintenance is simplified.
Efficient tools and extensive debugging functions simplify and accelerate the development and analysis of programs. Examples of this are:
