Software
iTools is a complete configuration and monitoring package for all
Eurotherm Series 2000 controllers. It will edit, store and ‘clone’
complete controller configurations. In addition a setpoint program
editor and real time trend plots of the process values are provided.
iTools employs an OPC which uses MODBUS® to communicate
with the controllers. The server connects to the controllers via serial
communications, Ethernet or a telephone modem. The OPC server
may also be used by third party ‘client’ software such as
Wonderware® and Labview®.

System Architecture
A DDE link allows parameter values to be displayed ‘Live’ in
an Excel speadsheet or other applications.
The historical logged data can also be imported into Excel.
The OPC server will
accept third party ‘client’
connections (requires
iTools OPEN Edition)
iTools connects to the controllers via the
provided OPC Server.
Connection to third party MODBIUS slaves is
possible by configuring custom tags.
Supported instruments
iTools supports configuration of all Eurotherm Series 2000 controllers including:
• 2132 and 2116 miniature controllers and indicators
• 2216, 2208 and 2204 controllers
• 2416, 2408 and 2404 controllers and programmers
• 2108i and 2408i indicators
• 2604 and 2704 advanced 3 loop controllers
• 2500 distributed I/O and data acquisition system
iTools also provides support for
• T630 Process controller
iTools also provides runtime monitoring of
• 5000 Series data aquisition and management unit
This gives access to all Modbus parameters. Please note this does not provide complete configuration.
Software Tools
iTools Configurator
The Configurator will edit, store and ‘clone’
complete controller configurations.
Clone files can be opened as virtual instruments
simulating their actual behaviour and allowing
complete configurations to be developed off-line,
then downloaded to the controller at a later time.
Configuration from an order code wizard is also
provided.
Setpoint Program Editor
The ‘Setpoint Program Editor’ provides a simple
method of setting up the setpoint profiles and
the programmable event outputs in the 2400,
2604 and 2704. The editor will store, retrieve and
download program profiles. It will work ‘on-line’,
when program values are edited ‘live’ in a
connected controller, or ‘off-line’, when programs
are edited before being downloaded to a selected
controller. The number of stored programs is
limited only by the capacity of the PC hard disk.
OPC Scope Trend Plots
OPC Scope is an iTools utility providing trend
plots of the process variables. The time axis can
be adjusted between 1 min and 1 month, and also
provides a Historical Review mode.
Data may also be logged to hard disk in CSV
format. This can then be recalled and analysed in
an Excel spreadsheet.

Controllers via their ‘factory’ comms port located on the side of the controller. By this
means controllers can be configured without having a comms module installed.
