Easier management of machine variants
Modular applications can now be implemented even more easily. B&R’s new software component, mapp IO, makes it possible to add I/O modules at any time. This can happen before a machine is delivered or even at runtime, thereby greatly simplifying the task of managing variants of machinery and equipment.
With mapp IO, I/O configurations can be generated directly from an ERP or order management system. No engineering tools are required, even if third-party drives or modules are added. Additional variants and options are configured directly on the machine using mapp IO and then programmed using mapp CodeBox.
With mapp CodeBox, you can program options in ladder logic without affecting the machine's primary application. The machine can be commissioned without having to modify the original machine software.
B&R has also made it easier to implement databases in applications, with the launch of mapp Database. This makes it possible to archive data directly from the field level to a database, regardless of whether that database is located on site or in the cloud. This drastically simplifies the management of large volumes of data.
It can be connected to any mapp component that saves or reads data. Instead of generating individual files for alarm lists, process values and audit events, all data is sent automatically via mapp Links to a database.
