AC450 to AC800M Logic Conversion Tools
Happy New Year to You.
Iam interesting to AC450 to AC800M conversion tools.
How many days you need to convert AC450 logic to AC800M, estimate tags is 40.000 tags.
Happy New Year also to You. Thank you for your inquiry.
I have been developing AC450 conversion tool since 5 years ago. Ampl2m conversion tool is built as a web based database application deployed in a dedicated Linux server. I have used the tool mainly for conversions of Paper mills, Power plants and RMC Drive controls, but it was also successfully used for such demanding applications as Turbine governor or Burners control. Kindly see references at my website.
I use to do also commissioning of the converted logic so I have a great confidence in the quality of the conversion.
Ampl2m tool can convert to AC800M Programs, Control modules or Control Diagrams including SFC.
This tool is well tuned to use Pulp & Paper library function blocks, but it can convert even without PP Lib blocks.
The main benefits of automated conversion are saving time, reducing engineering efforts and preventing human errors.
Automated conversion is relatively fast, however the converted code requires some manual corrections according to experience, because there are some differences in AC450 and AC800M application handling that cannot be resolved automatically.
The amount of necessary manual effort depends on how the original logic is programmed.
If AC450 applications use standard objects such as MOTCONs, VALVECONs, PIDCONs then the complete conversion takes approx 1 week per 1MB of AAX file.
On the other hand, if the original code contains, for example GENBIN or MMC-IND, it will require more manual effort.
Can you email me some samples of AC450 program to see the complexity of the logic? I would like to discuss further details.
