IoT programming software
IDEC Corporation: The latest version of its PLC programming software provides IoT capability with custom web pages which can be created with no HTML programming required.
Version 8.2.2 of the WindLDR PLC programming software can be used to program IDEC′s FC6A MicroSmart PLC. The software can also be used to program IDEC′s entire line of PLCs.
IoT capability is provided by custom web pages which can be configured for remote monitoring and control. Web pages are created with the built-in Web Page Editor using simple drag and drop functionality with no HTML programming required, a major advantage over competing products.
When used with the MicroSmart FC6A PLC, these web pages are stored in the PLC, which functions as a web server when its built-in Ethernet port is connected to the Internet. These web pages can be accessed via any web browser running on any Internet-connected device such as a remote PC, a tablet or a smartphone. Connecting the MicroSmart to the Internet also provides email and text notification functionality, which can be used with third-party email servers such as Gmail and Yahoo.
