Overview
Control Microsystems premier software
application, TelePACE, provides the ideal
programming environment in which to
develop ladder logic applications for the
SCADAPack family of controllers.
Easy-to-use Environment
Custom Ladder Logic Functions
TelePACE is a user-friendly, flexible
environment for developing, debugging
and downloading ladder logic code to
SCADAPack controllers. It allows for
both off-line and on-line code
development and provides local and
remote access to your process by
utilizing Intranet and Internet
technologies. It also provides controller
diagnostic and configuration tools as
well as custom functions for SCADAspecific applications.
TelePACE allows engineers and
electricians to quickly and efficiently
develop analog and digital control
sequences, configure PID process
control, create data logs, calculate flow
totals and perform communication
functions.
TelePACE combines the simplicity of traditional ladder logic with the flexibility and
power of custom functions. Users familiar with ladder logic programming
techniques and elements such as contacts, coils and timers can easily progress
to the more advanced SCADA functions that are available with the SCADAPack
controllers. These functions include:
DIAL, INIM:
Control dial-up phone line communication
DLOG, GETL: Create datalog and retrieve logged data
FLOW:
Accumulate and log flow totals based on pulse-type input
TOTL:
Totalize and log values based on rate input
HART:
Send a HART protocol command and process the response
MSTR:
Send a serial protocol message
MSIP:
Send a TCP/IP protocol message
PIDA, PIDD:
Perform an analog or digital output-based PID algorithm
SCAL:
Scale an integer to a floating-point value
SUBR:
Define subroutines

Concurrent C/C++ Code Execution
For additional programming power, a
TelePACE application can execute in the
SCADAPack controller concurrently with
C/C++ code. Process data generated in
either application can be passed to the
other through the common I/O
Database. This means, for example, that
the results of complex mathematical
algorithms, implemented using C/C++,
can be used by the TelePACE
application to control the process.
In a typical oil and gas application,
Control Microsystems RealFLO gas flow
computer C/C++ code handles the gas
flow calculation and logging functions
while a concurrently-executing
TelePACE application handles the
remainder of the well site automation
and communication duties; which
could include the control of equipment
such as pumps and motor starters.
TelePACE Demo
A free demo version of TelePACE is
available from Control Microsystems.
The demo version shares all the
functionality of the full version except
for the ability to save completed
applications to the hard drive.
To download the free TelePACE demo,
select the TelePACE Demo link from the
http://www.controlmicrosystems.com/
products/soft/soft_app.html page and
follow the installation instructions.
