WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD OF BEEPTOOLKIT
Today, developers of automation, devices and robotics largely depend on the software tools and hardware solutions of the manufacturers that are available to them, in which they are trained and from which they receive technical support.
As a result, customers in their choice are forced to follow the recommendations and criteria that are dictated by these developers, and they, in turn, are limited by the technologies of manufacturers of branded platforms.
BEEPNOOLKIT - Our KNOW-HOW, which we would like to present to you, is the result of many years of accumulated multi-disciplinary experience in automation.
It is a software (Framework), which is a tooling platform for developers of smart device automation and robotics.
The software developed in the BEEPTOOLKIT environment does not require connection to expensive external controllers or microprocessor devices and installed on personal, industrial, mini-computers or tablets running Windows / Linux operating systems and is a universal logic controller simulator.
In the process of developing the logical core of the platform, we took into account many of the problems faced by service companies, V&V departments and developers. We also took care of the possibility of further expanding the functionality of both developers and their clients.
After becoming familiar with the BEEPTOOLKIT platform, you don't need to think about ways and methods of automation, instead you will think about what you want to create.
BEEPTOOLIT is a multi-tasking accelerated development environment that enables complex automation
functions across many industries, agriculture, academia, medicine, defense, and more.
The platform is ideal for those projects that are at the stage of a formulated conceptual model.
As a logical core, we used the 6G language (LabVIEW), which is used in the most demanding and ambitious space projects such as SpaceX.
But if you're wondering how SpaceX chooses the tools and components for its rockets, they have two conditions:
The first is pretty obvious - all components are capable of doing their job.
Second For these specific components, development tools are always available.
This is how the BEEPTOOLKIT logical configurator panel looks like for 160 configurable bi-directional I/O, where:
The logical panel of the configurator allows:
- to carry out a full parametric and logical adjustment of the port operation in accordance with the algorithm of the entire automation or its individual scenarios;
- to carry out full or partial simulation without connection or with connection to external hardware peripherals;
- saving all settings in an external binary format;
- editing of previously saved configurations and settings of the PC interface; - multi-user or exclusive access to the developed instructions;
- copyright protection at the hardware and software levels;
- generation of telemetry reports in real time continuously or by event:
The entire scenario of the algorithm can be repeated many times in standby mode for a specified time or in the interval of 99:99:99 hours.
Similarly, you can configure repeating cycles for each I / O port.
It is possible to automatically start from the moment the PC is turned on or go into standby mode and then resume. Also, automatic shutdown of the PC after the specified time and the number of cyclic repetitions.
The port, according to its configurable parameters, can be output, input, or bidirectional.
The output can be configured for 1 of 16 loop and interrupt control channels.
For data acquisition, the port can be specified by the instruction as an input port and can receive data on 1 of 10 channels in the voltage range from 0.001 to 3.300 V or simultaneously on 10 channels.
The platform core, in accordance with these instructions, generates, sends, receives and processes input and output signals for acquisition and control. At the output, these are 2-bit signals of binary logic (reaction 30-70 ms, 0-5V, 270 mA), at the input, 12-bit signals of 115200 units.
Communication with drivers and sensors of peripheral equipment is carried out by two types of compact analog-to-digital USB decoders. Their total number in the panel configuration can reach 127.
After connecting to a PC, you need to enter their ID numbers and they are ready to interact with device drivers and distributed sensors.
The platform allows the development of a fully automatic system, mixed automation with manual control functions, as well as fully manual remote control (joystick, keyboard, etc.).
The developed automation or devices can work both under the interface of the logical configurator panel and with the user interface (HMI), which is performed by Beeptec Engineering programmers.
In case of development and implementation in accordance with the IEC 61131-3 standard, all created automatics and devices are subject to standardization at the expense of Partners or their customers.
The platform and the automation solutions developed on its basis, robotics and devices, in the event of requirements from the certification clients, can be certified. At the same time, Beeptec Engineering provides comprehensive assistance to the Partner in compliance with its own and the Partner's intellectual property rights.
Working with our platform BEEPTOOLKIT guarantees developers:
- Availability of an extensive market of manufacturers in ready-made and inexpensive hardware modular solutions;
- Ability to quickly, at an intuitive level of mastering development methods.
The developer does not need to know machine programming languages, he just fills the logical configurator panel with simple instructions;
- fast transition from development to production with an accelerated payback and resource savings.
The process of creation and transition to operation is 2 - 3 times cheaper, 10 times faster compared to the same tasks using DSP or PLC automation.
Summing up, we have set ourselves the goal of offering our potential customers and partners a fundamentally different next-generation technological platform for the development of automation and robotization.
