As in SV 5.1 Quanta 67 unit means 1 800M Controller.
how much CLPs for 1 800M Controller in SV 4.1.
what is actually CLPs stand for?
Voted best answer
In 4.0 and 5.0: CLP = controller license point
1 digital IO connected to IEC61131 variable = 1 CLP
1 analog IO connected to IEC61131 variable = 2 CLP
There was also some high level type that took 7 CLP per connection with variable.
In 5.1: CLP was replaced with Quanta
Each AC 800M PLC has a constant quanta value
In 6.0: Quanta was replaced with Controller Capacity Points
Each AC 800M PLC has a constant CCP number
Singular PM866 = 100 CCP
In earlier versions of xA like xA4.1 and xA5.0 uses CLP(Control License Point) based licensing mechanism.
Means CLP is calculated based on the variables connected to local/remote field devices,IO units,FF or PA devices.
As a basic rule one Bool IO=1clp and realIO=2clp
So always you should consider 25% extra for future requirement.
After 5.1 licensing is scaled on CCP(Controller Capacity Points)
Means each controller type has its own number of CCP points, like
PM866:100 CCP like it will vary
so while creating the number of controller objects in Project explorer be sure dont create extra controller objects else cls status viewer shows an violation counts.
