I want to create a database that keeps track of all of the different PLC and automation hardware (Remote I/O, Flex I/O, Robots, etc.). It would include data such as firmware version, when the backup battery was last replaced, location, etc. I have started doing this in MS Access but I was curious if anyone knew of an existing software that already does something similar?
Hi All, Does any one have any good method for keeping a list of all the IO/Tags assigned to a PLC/Plant? We assign Tags by PLC ID >> Equipment Type ID >> Next number available for the PLC-Equipment combination. Outside contractors have traditionally done all the Automation work (we're a food manufacturer) but I'm the first in house Automation position they've ever had and I'm trying to gather all the IO lists and details for each PLC and put them into some kind of database/excel sheet per PLC so that any one in in engineering or a contractor can go and look up whats there, what the next available number is for that equipment type. (I'm sure I'm not the only one who struggles to convey the importance of appropriate tag naming to engineers and contractors that isn't just "Water Addition Pump" (When there is several water addition pumps onsite)). I can build myself a macro-enabled spread sheet for this, but before I head off and spend hours making something thought I'd check if there wasn't already something else out there.
