Idec releases iOS and Android apps for PLC access

Friday March 02, 2018
Mar. 2, 2018 - Idec’s new WindEDIT Lite app for iOS and Android devices provides two-way access to its family of MicroSmart FC6A PLCs.

With the WindEDIT Lite app, users can monitor any PLC parameter and change set points and other values, says Idec. Data register, input, output, timer and counter values can be monitored and controlled using the standard Dialog Interface. The WindEDIT Lite app also has a custom Dialog Interface which the user can configure to allow only certain PLC parameters to be monitored and controlled. Trending is supported within the app, with users able to plot multiple register points for graphical views, explains Idec.

The WindEDIT Lite app runs on any iOS or Android mobile device, typically a smartphone or tablet. Once the app is downloaded to the device, it interfaces to the MicroSmart FC6A PLC via wireless Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Ethernet for two-way local or remote access. Bluetooth is a preferred solution for local, limited-range connections where an Ethernet network may not be available, such as within an industrial plant or facility. The WindEDIT Lite app provides access to an SD memory card installed in the PLC, so logged information stored in the SD memory card can be accessed. The logged data can be viewed, and then attached to a text message or an email, either of which can be sent to recipients.
