  SPS/IPC/Drives/Nuremberg 2018 Recap: Delta Announces Partnership with CODESYS and Presents Innovation & Smart Automation for Industrial Upgrades


 
   
   
Delta just participated in SPS/IPC/Drives/Nuremberg 2018 (SPS 2018), a highly focused industrial event in Germany, from November 27th to 29th, and presented its smart automation products and solutions with the theme of “Innovation & Smart Automation for Industrial Upgrades”. Delta announced a new partnership with CODESYS Group at the exhibition and unveiled its upgraded motion solution with the CODESYS motion control platform and the new PC-Based Motion Controller MH2 Series. Delta’s industrial solutions highlighted a high-end PC-based motion controller, PLC-based EtherCAT motion controller, and motion systems for woodworking and packaging machines. For high-end smart equipment and production monitoring, Delta’s new Human Machine Interface (HMI) DOP-100 Series is featured in an interactive live streaming car racing demo with a user-friendly operation interface and multimedia functions. For process automation, Delta presented a highly reliable, energy-saving, and automated water treatment solution based on its successes in Europe and Asia.

Mr. Andy Liu, general manager of Delta’s Industrial Automation Business Group, indicated that global manufacturers of all industries have started to apply smart manufacturing solutions to enhance their competitiveness in recent years. In response, world-class automation companies are focusing on industry-specific equipment and solutions with in-depth industrial know-how, high-end products and software. “Delta, with over twenty years’ of experience in the automation field and strong R&D and manufacturing capabilities, adheres to providing smart, flexible, and the most suitable automation solutions for different industries,” said Mr. Liu.

Andy pointed out that Delta’s cooperation with CODESYS would bring motion solutions that satisfy the needs of many top automation players in Europe, and could also make CODESYS available to the large Delta customer base in Asia. For applications in different industries, Delta successfully applied its water treatment solution to the Komotini Water Plant in Greece and helped to build a highly automated, high quality water processing and treatment system in 2013. This experience helped Delta achieve another success story by providing a wastewater treatment solution for a well-known Taiwanese textile company’s factory in China. Delta is also launching more automation products and solutions for different industries such as packaging, food processing, and woodworking in the EMEA regions based on its abundant field experience in Taiwan and China.

Delta and CODESYS Announce Partnership with Brand New Motion Control Solution
To enhance the expanding progress of Delta’s motion control solutions and fulfill customer needs, Delta held a press conference during SPS 2018 and announced its new partnership with 3S-Smart Software Solution GmbH, a member of the CODESYS Group and creator of the market-leading IEC 61131-3 industrial software CODESYS. Mr. Dieter Hess, CEO of the CODESYS Group, participated in the press conference to release this exciting news together with Delta.

Mr. Dieter Hess said, “We’re very excited to welcome Delta to the CODESYS community, which now includes some 400 hardware manufacturers and over 10,000 developers. Delta is an established name in the world of industrial automation, so this is a significant partnership for both sides. We look forward to working with Delta to help them serve their customers and make the most out of their hardware portfolio.”

CODESYS is one of the most widely used manufacturer IEC 61131-3 development systems on the market. CODESYS offers the complete functionalities of a modern IEC 61131-3 development tool; including an integrated visualization with different clients, integrated connection to all standard fieldbus systems, motion functionality, safety solutions and communication interfaces.

Mr. Patrik Hug, head of business development & product management, EMEA at Delta’s IABG, indicated that additional costs are generated when a manufacturer adds a new automation platform. By integrating CODESYS, Delta aims to reduce the amount of engineering costs that this requires. “Switching to different motion platforms or adding a new one means you have to write new code. The goal is to reduce the initial switching time when adding a new platform. By standardizing on CODESYS, we are making it much easier for customers to use Delta automation products. Instead of having different software to program each of their platforms, they will be able to write code on the same platform for all of their Delta products. And the great thing about CODESYS is that you have an entire community of application developers. There is a lot of expertise out there to draw from,” said Patrik.

Delta launched its new CODESYS-enabled scalable IPC, the MH2 Series at SPS IPC Drives 2018. The CODESYS platform integrates the control functions of three major industrial controllers: programmable logic controllers (PLC), human machine interfaces (HMI), and motion control, enhancing the motion control capabilities of the MH2 Series and constructing a high speed, high precision EtherCAT motion control solution with peripheral products. With CODESYS, the MH2 Series provides a user-friendly motion control interface and features strong motion control functions that allow up to 64 axes synchronous control of AC Servo Drives ASDA-A2-E Series, Standard Compact Drives MS300 Series, and Remote I/O Modules R1-EC via EtherCAT.

Delta plans to keep rolling out CODESYS-enabled products in the future and will continue to support its existing motion and automation platforms as well. With motion control solutions using CODESYS, Delta will open new doors to the Asian market for European industrial equipment makers.
