SIMATIC IPC Support Package for VxWorks
Simple integration of real-time applications in your automation solution
With the SIMATIC IPC Support Package for Wind River® VxWorks®, you can realize automation tasks with strict real-time requirements quickly and easily on powerful SIMATIC IPC hardware. All interfaces as well as communication and diagnostics functions of the SIMATIC industrial PC are supported. This guarantees optimum integration in your automation solution – without time-consuming driver development.
Real-time applications in the industrial environment
Realization of industrial applications with high real-time requirements
Achievement of short response times of 10 µs on rugged SIMATIC IPC hardware
Use of VxWorks as rugged, tried-and-tested real-time operating system for industrial use
Integration in SIMATIC automation
PROFINET onboard for high-performance, cyclic and isochronous transfer of user data via industrial Ethernet
PROFIBUS onboard as tried-and-tested, widely used fieldbus enables integration into a large number of fieldbus networks
Use of detailed monitoring functions of SIMATIC IPCs (battery monitoring, temperature monitoring, fan monitoring, operating hours counter, support of retentive memory, watchdog, S.M.A.R.T.) to avoid system downtimes
Free programming and know-how protection
Efficient programming in C/C++ for automation solution
Open programming interface
Protection of technology know-how (application is only available as executable code in the target system)
The SIMATIC Support Package for VxWorks consists of drivers, header files, libraries, documentation and application examples to realize the functions listed above. The support package does not include the VxWorks real-time operating system or the corresponding development or runtime licenses.
