IOlog - Data Acquisition System



IOlog is a reliable and low cost distributed data acquisition system based on SS3000 I/O modules and SCADA Winlog Pro software. SS3000 I/O modules provide different types of input (digital, 20 mA, 10 V, Pt100, TC) and output (digital, relay, 10 V, 20 mA) channels.

You can find more details here

SS3000 I/O modules and supervisory PC can be linked together by a RS485 network with a Modbus ASCII/RTU protocol or by an Ethernet network (using a gateway TCP/RTU module) with a Modbus TCP protocol. Winlog Pro software provides an operator interface in a Windows environment for real-time supervision, historical trend analysis or alarm management; an integrated development environment allows a quick and easy creation of complete multilanguage applications.

Thanks to its characteristics of modularity, reliability, flexibility and low cost, IOlog system is widely used for quality control in many industrial and civil applications (pasteurization process in food industry, cold storage of animal tissues in hospital facilities, dust pollution level in environmental control, etc.).



SCADA applications can be automatically created by Application Builder, a powerful tool that allows a dramatic reduction of development time; applications can be created by simply taking up from a library and putting together the software objects that refer to SS3000 data acquisition modules.

Software objects include tags, protocols, templates and all necessary information for supervision and configuration of related devices (front view, configuration templates, alarms, etc.).

Data read from I/O modules can be recorded and displayed as graphical trends or processed for alarms management, generation of quality and production reports, etc.; standard format (DBF, CSV) of history files and ODBC (SQL) support ensure interface with most Windows applications such as Excel or Access.

Winlog Pro makes it possible to set up a distributed Client/Server architecture with a TCP/IP protocol or to create web applications accessible from Internet Clients with a standard browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox; both fix and mobile (GSM, GPRS) telephone networks can be used to communicate with remote devices or to send SMS.

Winlog Lite registration

Winlog Lite is the entry level version of the SCADA/HMI software Winlog Pro offered by Sielco Sistemi to allow an evaluation of the potentiality and the simplicity of use of the package; Winlog Lite is also a powerful and low cost solution for creation of small supervisory applications.

Winlog Lite
makes available most of development tools and functions provided by the Winlog Pro software package, but limits the possibility to develop and to run applications up to a max of 24 tags. Winlog Lite does not include Symbol Factory library and web support.

Winlog Lite can be executed both in Demo mode (without need of registration) and Full mode; in Demo mode, communication with external devices and sampling of external tags automatically stops after 15 minutes (if required, it can be restarted manually); in Full mode communication goes on without any limit of time.

You can download Winlog Lite here.

To run Winlog Lite in Full mode, it is necessary to buy a license "Winlog Lite" and carry out the registration procedure; "Winlog Lite" license is valid only on the computer used to carry out the registration procedure and can't be transferred to another computer.
"Winlog Lite" licence can be ordered via web only. It consists by an activation code (Licence key) received by e-mail.
The installation identification code file (Licence request) shall be sent to sales[at]sielcosistemi.com. You will receive the activation code (Licence key) for Winlog Lite Full mode execution.
Refer to instructions available in Project Manager, Guide | Registration menu to obtain the installation identification code file (Licence request) and to insert the activation code (Licence key).

For Winlog Pro licenses with plug type PC independent protection keys visit Winlog Pro Licenses page.

Part 2

In this guide we propose, as an example, the design of a simple supervision application Siemens MPI protocol based;
this example is a little step towards the design of more complex SCADA applications, but it can be useful for
anybody who approaches for the first time to a SCADA, and in particular to Winlog Pro software, to quickly
understand how to communicate with external devices (Siemens Simatic S7-300 and S7-400 PLCs).

Supervision of low and medium voltage networks

Supervision of low and medium voltage networks

Link

The continuous increase of energy costs together with the possibility to select the most suitable contract among different energy providers make more and more convenient a supervisory system able to ensure a continuous monitoring of power consumption and energy costs of low and medium voltage networks. Thanks to Winlog Pro SCADA software, it has been possible to develop many supervisory applications able to provide both the continuous monitoring of the electrical network and the possibility to increase the overall efficiency. Winlog Pro includes a series of internal objects especially designed to display electrical schemes and cabinets, to monitor power consumption, to calculate energy costs using both real or simulated calendars with different fares according to date and time. Display of electrical schemes with animated switches and lines changing colour according to current path allow highlighting of energy flows, quick spotting of abnormal operation and prevention of possible power overflow. Monitoring of power consumption and energy costs of single user lines and of the overall network in the form of daily, monthly and yearly bar charts provide an ideal report for analysis and optimization of the electrical network; the possibility to program the yearly calendar with different fares according to date and time is an essential tool to prepare a budget plan and select the contract more suitable for anyone's requirements.
