Basic Function Block LibraryEvery
drive.webdevice has a Basic Function Block Library that includes a useful range of functions that can be instantiated as often as necessary and connected by drag & drop to perform basic control schemes. All function block graphics are dynamic, so all objects such as switches, contacts, indicators and parameters show their real-time state or value.
The basic PI controller is suitable for most closed loop control applications.
This function block includes all of the features you will need for demanding industrial applications, such as:
- Integral preset
- Independent upper and lower output clamps
- Together with monitoring points for all the key variables including error, clamp state, and PI terms
Utility Function Blocks:
Utilities enable you to handle different data types, send event driven emails and monitor the operation of your system and network.
- Parameter blocks for analog, binary, Boolean, enumerations, hexadecimal
- email notifications
- Network statistics
Here are examples of some of the Utility function blocks:
