Advances in Systems, Computing Sciences and Software Engineering This book includes the proceedings of the International Conference on Systems, Computing Sciences and Software Engineering (SCSS’05). The proceedings are a set of rigorously reviewed world-class manuscripts addressing and detailing state-of-the-art research projects in the areas of computer science, software engineering, computer engineering, systems sciences and engineering, information technology, parallel and distributed computing and web-based programming. SCSS’05 was part of the International Joint Conferences on Computer, Information, and Systems Sciences, and Engineering (CISSE’05) (www. cisse2005. org), the World’s first Engineering/Computing and Systems Research E-Conference. CISSE’05 was the first high-caliber Research Conference in the world to be completely conducted online in real-time via the internet. CISSE’05 received 255 research paper submissions and the final program included 140 accepted papers, from more than 45 countries. The concept and format of CISSE’05 were very exciting and ground-breaking. The PowerPoint presentations, final paper manuscripts and time schedule for live presentations over the web had been available for 3 weeks prior to the start of the conference for all registrants, so they could choose the presentations they want to attend and think about questions that they might want to ask. The live audio presentations were also recorded and were part of the permanent CISSE archive, which also included all power point presentations and papers. SCSS’05 provided a virtual forum for presentation and discussion of the state-of the-art research on Systems, Computing Sciences and Software Engineering.

SIMATIC ist das weltweit etablierte Automatisierungssystem für die Realisierung von Industriesteuerungen für Maschinen, fertigungstechnische Anlagen und verfahrenstechnische Prozesse. Erforderliche Steuerungs- und Regelungsaufgaben werden mit der Engineeringsoftware STEP 7 in verschiedenen Programmiersprachen formuliert. Kontaktplan (KOP) und Funktionsplan (FUP) verwenden für die Darstellung der Steuerungsfunktionen grafische Symbole - ähnlich wie in einem Stromlaufplan oder bei elektronischen Schaltkreissystemen. In der sechsten Auflage beschreibt das Buch diese grafikorientierten Programmiersprachen in Verbindung mit der Engineeringsoftware STEP 7 V5.5 für die Automatisierungssysteme SIMATIC S7-300 und S7-400. Neue Funktionen dieser STEP 7-Version betreffen besonders den CPU-Webserver und PROFINET IO, wie beispielsweise die Anwendung von I-Devices, Shared Devices und Taktsynchronität. Das Buch bietet Unterstützung für alle Anwender von SIMATIC-S7-Steuerungen. Anfänger führt es in das Gebiet der speicherprogrammierbaren Steuerungen ein, dem Praktiker zeigt es den speziellen Einsatz des Automatisierungssystems SIMATIC S7. Alle Programmierbeispiele des Buches - und noch einige mehr - stehen als Download auf der Internetseite des Verlags unter www.publicis-books.de/ bereit.

This is the introduction to PLCs for which baffled students, technicians and managers have been waiting. In this straightforward, easy-to-read guide, Bill Bolton has kept the jargon to a minimum, considered all the programming methods in the standard IEC 1131-3 - in particular ladder programming, and presented the subject in a way that is not device specific to ensure maximum applicability to courses in electronics and control systems. Now in its fourth edition, this best-selling text has been expanded with increased coverage of industrial systems and PLCs and more consideration has been given to IEC 1131-3 and all the programming methods in the standard. The new edition brings the book fully up to date with the current developments in PLCs, describing new and important applications such as PLC use in communications (e.g. Ethernet – an extremely popular system), and safety – in particular proprietary emergency stop relays (now appearing in practically every PLC based system). The coverage of commonly used PLCs has been increased, including the ever popular Allen Bradley PLCs, making this book an essential source of information both for professionals wishing to update their knowledge, as well as students who require a straight forward introduction to this area of control engineering. Having read this book, readers will be able to: * Identify the main design characteristics and internal architecture of PLCs * Describe and identify the characteristics of commonly used input and output devices * Explain the processing of inputs and outputs of PLCs * Describe communication links involved with control systems * Develop ladder programs for the logic functions AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOT and XOR * Develop functional block, instruction list, structured text and sequential function chart programs * Develop programs using internal relays, timers, counters, shift registers, sequencers and data handling * Identify safety issues with PLC systems * Identify methods used for fault diagnosis, testing and debugging programs Fully matched to the requirements of BTEC Higher Nationals, students are able to check their learning and understanding as they work through the text using the Problems section at the end of each chapter. Complete answers are provided in the back of the book. * Thoroughly practical introduction to PLC use and application - not device specific, ensuring relevance to a wide range of courses * New edition expanded with increased coverage of IEC 1131-3, industrial control scenarios and communications - an important aspect of PLC use * Problems included at the end of each chapter, with a complete set of answers given at the back of the book
