IPLC5xx Process station MiniPLC Shark
Process station MiniPLC Shark
The IPLC range is a family of digital process stations – communicative DDC
controllers with Power PC processor and OS Linux, kernel version 2.6. All types
contain one RS485 interface for connecting of I/O modules and one Ethernet port
for communication with a management station for remote management, extended
types provide two more RS232 ports and one RS485 port.
Free programmable control units for HVAC systems and other
applications with local HMI
Optional customized firmware – protocol converters with data
Data acquisition, processing, and presentation systems with advanced
networking features
Energy management systems, photovoltaic plants
The controller contains an embedded operating system which boots up the runtime
with the application. On the board there is a real time clock with battery backup,
alarm buzzer, flash memory containing OS, runtime, application, and other data (time
programs, setpoints etc.), NVRAM, and a watchdog. The RS485 communication is
indicated by two LEDs at the bus end switch. SW1 set to ON at boot stops runtime
and enables service access to the controller.
The application is downloaded over a SCP connection to the file system of the
controller. A recommended client is WinSCP.
IPLC500 and IPLC510 provide a HMI: backlit 16 x 3 characters display and 6
pushbuttons. The user menu structure is configured in the LCD Menu Editor and
contains actual values, setpoints, alarms, time schedules etc. in a tree structure. The
branches are either freely accessible or protected by a PIN.
The module is 105 mm wide and mounts on a standard DIN rail.
Application examples: see domat – Design and application guide.

The IPLC510 is suitable for more complex applications or where integration of 3rd
party systems or serial communication with other devices than domat I/O modules is
The IPLC500 / IPLC510 may host up to about 400 physical I/O data points, depending
on the complexity of the application software.
The main programming tool is the RcWare SoftPLC package which contains I/O
editor, graphical editor of the function plan, compiler (RcWare SoftPLC IDE), and LCD
menu editor as well as touchscreen editor (RcWare SoftPLC HMI Editor).
The application program consists of function blocks which are stored in libraries.
Those contain analogue and digital functions, mathematical blocks including
goniometric functions, time schedulers, alarm blocks, and HVAC specific blocks (heat
recovery, dewpoint calculation, enthalpy, pump switch etc.)
The application (project) is uploaded into the process stations using RcWare SoftPLC
IDE. The installation package RcWare SoftPLC, manual and videotutorials are available
at www.domat.cz.

RcWare SoftPLC IDE
Number of communication channels (on the serial lines and Ethernet) to I/O
modules and subsystems: unlimited
Number of connections from clients: unlimited. This includes connections from
RcWare Vision, IDE, Touchscreen application, LCD menu, browser to internal web
server, connection from other PLCs over SoftPLC Link etc.
Communication drivers: find the updated list at www.domat.cz, Download, Technical
documentation, Supported protocols.
Program upload is only posssible in a local network (LAN). If a remote program upload
over the Internet is required, security rules must be observed to prevent the building
control system from network attacks. A VPN or similar technology is recommended to
access the PLC from the Internet.
Communication Default network settings are:
IP address
subnet mask
default gateway
SCP user / password: root / sharkXXXX, where XXXX are the last 4 digits of the serial
number (see device label).
Remember to note the new IP address after readdressing!
After these values have been changed (see RcWare MiniPLC IDE handbook), it is
possible to bring the process station into default settings by DIP switch SW2: set SW2
to ON and restart the station. It will respond at the default address and it is possible
to change the old address in the network config file.
The controllers can share variables over the Ethernet network (outside temperature,

heat demands etc.) together with IPLC2../3.., IPCT, and other platforms.
In case of integration into a SCADA system the controller links over TCP/IP (default
TCP port number is 12345) to an OPC server (RcWare SoftPLC OPC server). The server
can acquire data from more than one controller. This is how the IPLC can be easily
integrated into majority of SCADA systems.
The runtime provides drivers for communication with numerous subsystems, e.g.
Modbus TCP / RTU, BACnet, M-Bus, meter readout according to IEC 61107 / EN
62056, EN 60870-5-104, Advantech, Refusol, PowerOne, Saia, Sauter 2400, Landis &
Gyr, and much more. See the latest list of drivers in the SoftPLC IDE channel definition
dialogue. New drivers may be developed on request, contact the Domat Control
System support department for details.
The Linux OS allows to run any user program on the IPLC5xx platform. Details
concerning I/O ports addressing etc. are provided by Domat Control System
technical support.
The IP address, other network properties, and SoftPLC project location and runtime
parameters are set up in configuration files. The steps are described in the RcWare
SoftPLC MiniPLC Configuration manual in the IPLC500 section.
Note that in the current version, the integrated web server functionality is NOT
