Hello, and thank you for the quick response. |
As for specific hardware, a good one in my opinion and also for some of my current solutions I provide would be Rockwell Automation Micro800 series and their associated HMI's the PanelView 800 line. They are purported to be open PLC's, I am sure with a Rockwell twist.
Some of the reasoning behind my question was to eventually eliminate my windows OS based PC's needs in my chosen line of work, which I will very likely retire from before I accomplish that.
Is there a template available for making a device in (I assume FORTE) where I could attempt to build the ones I need as I need them? Is it the same as making an Eclipse Plugin? I have access to hardware usually fairly readily, and in most instances can get a good amount of technical information from the OEM. I would of course freely release it back to the community, in case someone else ran into the same need.
A number of years back, I was working as a contractor at a large automation system integrator, they had developed a C program that would write pallet traffic PLC code for the Siemens S5 PLC, as Function Blocks of statement list.
