When it comes to the software

By the end of the first project implementation phase we developed the low and high level interface driver software. One part of the software is the firmware of the PLC, which provides the software interface of data read-out, pre-processing and data transfer. The data is transferred via EtherCAT protocol to a main computer (or SCADA system) where it is further processed and displayed.  The aim was to digitally obtain the measurement data to the dataset to compare the performance of the sensor system with laboratory measurements.
