Through the standardization of components in the PLC Framework, it becomes feasible to develop tools in order to automate the generation of over 100 Beckhoff PLC Projects. The focus will be on the PLC Management System (PLCMS) tool developed to achieve this. Provided with an electrical diagram markup (EPLAN XML export), the PLCMS queries the database model populated from the PLC Framework. It captures integration parameters and compatible EtherCAT fieldbus hardware. Additionally, inter-device communication and interlocking processes are integrated into the PLC from a defined user template by the PLCMS. The solution provides a flexible and scalable means for automatic and expedited deployment for the PLC control systems. The PLCMS can be further enhanced by interfacing into the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for complete asset management of both PLC software and connected hardware across the facility.
