Our client requires a special wizard that aims at simplifying the configuration of his drives.
That wizard should be built in the CODESYS IDE (Windows) as a CODESYS Automation Platform Plug-In. That Plug-In must communicate with different pre-existing customized plug-ins. A GUI to configure different features of the drive is to be developed.
Special algorithms to calculate drive parameters based on the signal measurements are to be developed as well.
The user interface was prepared for the several wizard pages.
We designed the integration architecture to define how the plug-in communicates with the pre-existing plug-ins and developed the corresponding interface.
The plug-in was developed in C# using CODESYS Automation platform. Tests were performed together with the customer onsite on a real machine. All developed algorithms were tested in advance using a simulation environment.
Each page displays some system parameters that can either be configured visually or using a list of parameters.
This project was handled efficiently and delivered on time after a few weeks of implementation and test.
