The Development Kit PLCcore-F407 allows for a quick commissioning of the PLCcore-F407 and simplifies the design of prototypes for user-specific applications that are based on this module. The Development Kit contains all hard- and software components that are necessary to create own applications: the PLCcore-F407 SOM with pre-installed runtime-kernel, the corresponding Development Board containing I/O periphery and numerous interfaces, the OpenPCS development system as well as further accessory. Thus, the Development Kit forms the ideal platform for developing user-specific applications based on the ECUcore-F407.
Development Board PLCcore-F407
The Development Board included in the Kit facilitates quick commissioning of the PLCcore-F407and simplifies the design of prototypes for user-specific applications based on this module. The Development Board features several possibilities for power supply, an Ethernet interface, two CAN bus interfaces, USB, SD card slot and a low-current RTC with battery backup. As control elements for the digital in- and outputs, the Development Board contains four push buttons, four LED and a potentiometer for analog input. Signals that are available from plug connectors of the PLCcore-F407 are linked to pin header connectors and enable easy connection of own peripheral circuitry.
OpenPCS IEC 61131 programming system
The OpenPCS IEC 61131 programming system included in the Kit serves as software development platform and as debug environment for the PLCcore-F407. Thus, the module can either be programmed graphically in KOP/FUB, AS and CFC or textually in AWL or ST. Downloading the PLC program onto the module takes place via CANopen (Z4-option of PLCcore-F407) or Ethernet (Z5-option of PLCcore-F407). High-capacity debug functionality such as watching and setting variables, single cycles, breakpoints and single steps simplify the development and commissioning of user software for this module.
