This engineering tool provides a development and test environment for TÜV-certified SIL3 safety and control systems. Beside textual programming a graphic editor (based on IEC 61131-3 standard) facilitates easy handling. GA BlueEdit features an online diagnostic mode, temporal correlation analysis and a simulation mode.
The application software is executed on the control hardware. All of the system’s hardware signals can be forced for loop-checks and functional validation of the application software. In addition, signal diagnostics such as cable damage, short-circuiting and read-back values of the output signals are displayed. GA BlueEdit also allows full access to all internal system diagnostics as well as the entire system configuration.
