Summary and Info
IEC 61499 is a standard for modelling distributed control systems for use in factory automation. This standard is already having an impact on the design and implementation of industrial control systems that involve the integration of programmable logic controllers, intelligent devices and sensors.Modelling control systems using IEC 61499. 2nd Edition has been significantly updated to incorporate the changes introduced in the two revisions of the standard since 2001 and to reflect lessons learned from the author’s teaching of IEC 61499 in the last ten years. Therefore this book provides a through yet concise introduction to the main concepts and models defined in the IEC 61499 standard for modelling distributed control systems for use in factory automation.Topics covered include;- defining function blocks- structuring applications- service interface function blocks- event function blocks- examples of industrial applications.Modelling control systems using IEC 61499. 2nd Edition is essential reading for academic and research-led control and process engineers and students working in research fields that require complex control systems using networked based distributed control. This book will also be of interest to researchers in robotics and safety systems.
