Migration AC450 to AC800M
How do I find a guide for migrating from AC450 to AC800M?
I don't believe there is any official document regarding AC450 migration. AC450 migration is too complex task to be clearly described within the scope of one document. Problem is there are many similarities but also significant differences in application building between AC450 and AC800M. Also depends on customer's preference on translation to Programs, Control modules, Diagrams, or Function designer. See this App describing one of possible approaches:
There is no guide available as you first of all must have a matching function block library in your AC800M.
BU Process Industries Sweden offer automatic code conversion, for APC, AC70, AC80, AC110, AC410, AC450 & MP200/1 etc, as a service for a fixed price per node.
(hands on might be needed depending on used AMPL libraries).
Normal procedure is that you send the source code (.aa & .ba-files) from the AMPL controller to ABB, to make a check and a test conversion.
The information about the result will then be attached to the quotation for the Code Conversion.
With this information you can then decide if our Code Conversion Service will be useful for you.
There are possibilities for discounts depending of number of nodes.
When AC400 or MP200 controllers are been converted, the AC800M Pulp & Paper library is needed in addition.
For AC70 & AC110 a function block library with standard elements is included.
The tool is using ABB AC800M Pulp & Paper Library for the functional Units AOC, AIC, DIC, DOC, MOTCON, VALVECON, PIDCON, PIDCONA, MANSTN, RATIOSTN etc.
Cost for the Pulp & paper Library is not included in the Code Conversion price.
The Price includes check of source code and conversion. The result will be delivered as a Project Export file (.afw) or Compact CB Project.
Pre/after work , test or commissioning of the converted code is not included in the price.
Please contact 1. your local ABB contact, 2. firstname.lastname@example.org or 3. email@example.com, for more details.
