Control Architect supports Bulk Build/Edit of PKS CEE, PKS SCADA, LCN EB, and Win7 TPS Builder strategies. Pre-configured Control Conversion solutions are available from AST to support the conversion (migration) of legacy Honeywell Control system configuration assets. A Hiway Control Conversion Plugin has been developed that can be referenced in a Control Conversion Template that provides Hiway Regulatory Box control analysis for automatically generating PKS CEE resident Control strategies based on the existing Control Strategy configuration. The example solution below migrates Hiway resident point configuration including PIU's, CB/EC/MC Regulatory algorithms and MC simple point types including Timer, Numeric, Flag. Below are examples of using a Control Conversion solution.
The Control Binding view is where existing Hiway point type parameters are mapped to their equivalent Control Module and function block type. Each Control Binding that is mapped by default will simply transform the property (Parameter) value as-is. Users can choose to transform the property (Parameter) value based on a c# script that is automatically generated for each and every Control Binding. Various functions available within the C# code language combined with powerful functions provided by Control Architect allow a user to transform existing Parameter values to their required values.
Using Control Architect to drive Control Conversion solutions provides these 4 main benefits:
The examples below show the use of the Control Templates in the solution for automatically generating PKS Control configuration files for loading through Control Builder. Note: A Control Property is synonomous to a Parameter item that resides on an Entity that makes up a Control Strategy.
