The Development Kit PLCcore-iMX35 is a high-capacity, complete package at a particularly favorable price. Based on a compact PLC with integrated target visualization, it enables the user to develop own, custom specific HMI devices.
The Kit ensures quick and problem-free commissioning of the PLCcore-iMX35. Therefore, it combines all hard- and software components that are necessary to create own HMI applications: the PLCcore-iMX35 SOM, the corresponding Development Board containing a QVGA LCD Display, 4x4 Matrix Keypad, I/O periphery and numerous interfaces, the OpenPCS IEC 61131 programming system, the SpiderControl HMI Editor (demo version) for the creation of the graphics pages as well as further accessory.
Development Board PLCcore-iMX35
The Development Board included in the Kit facilitates quick commissioning of the PLCcore-iMX35 and simplifies the design of prototypes for user-specific HMI applications based on this module. The Development Board comprises different power supply possibilities, a 320x240 pixel QVGA LCD Display, Ethernet interface, 2 CAN interfaces, 2 serial interfaces, 4 push buttons and 4 LED as control elements for digital in- and outputs and it comprises a Scroll Wheel and an connector for a 4x4 Matrix Keypad. Signals that are available from plug connectors of the PLCcore-iMX35 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-iMX35. Thus, the module can either be programmed graphically in LD/FUB, SFC and CFC or textually in IL or ST. Downloading the PLC program onto the module takes place via Ethernet or CANopen – depending on the firmware that is used. 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.
The integrated Target Visualization of the PLCcore-iMX35 is based on the SpiderControl MicroBrowser by the iniNet Solutions GmbH. It enables for displaying of process values from the PLC as well as forwarding of operator actions to the PLC (e.g. entries via Touchscreen, Scrollwheel and matrix keyboard).
VMware Image Linux - ECUcore-iMX35
Besides OpenPCS, the PLCcore Development Kit comes with a ready-to-use development environment for writing C/C++ application which can be executed simultaneously to the PLC program. This C/C++ development environment is pre-installed in a VMware virtual machine. The player required to start the virtual machine is available free of charge. The provision of virtual machines for application development provides a number of advantages to the end-user. Installation of new software on your development PC is reduced to the VMware player. Installation of the PLCcore development environment and related project files is not necessary and therefore eliminates a number of possible pitfalls for new users. You can easily keep a working copy of your virtual machine for backup. In case of data loss you can switch to your backup virtual machine and you’ll be productive again immediately.
