Function block libraries for photovoltaics

Press Release   •   Sep 01, 2014 12:41 BST

The function block libraries for the PC Worx programming software from Phoenix Contact now offer more opportunities for solar engineering: The user saves engineering time, with pre-assembled function blocks from Solar Basic V1.30 and Solar Advanced V1.30. Typical tasks associated with PV systems can thereby be easily and quickly programmed and potential sources of error can be avoided.

The libraries contain, among others, function blocks for:

  • Standard I/O components such as analogue inputs, temperature inputs, function and communication modules
  • DC and AC monitoring with Solarcheck and EMpro
  • Communication with Modbus/RTU and TCP devices
  • Alarm generation via SMS
  • Saving values and events as a CSV file
  • Calculating the sun's position for tracking systems
  • Communication with inverters for reading parameters and setting setpoints for active power and reactive power dissipation
  • Setpoints received in analog format for active power dissipation of a PV park are also converted into configurable digital signals.

Phoenix Contact, founded over 80 years ago, is a leading manufacturer of electric connection and industrial automation technology. 12,800 employees, 47 own sales companies and 30 sales partner worldwide ensure customer proximity.

Our work is dedicated to the creation of progress with inspiring, innovative solutions and to a trusting partnership towards our customers and partners with common benefits.
