Here you find some more Braumat-Tools.
Enjoy and give feedback! Thank you!

Best Time for implementing new Tools is during engineering. There is enough time to evaluate how it works and does it have some unwanted effect.
“Never touch a running system”, keep this in mind if you want to make new features during production.

Saving energy by Load-shedding

Almost all small and medium-sized enterprises, when their connection power exceeds x kW (depending from the power supplier), have to pay a higher price in addition to the working price. An energy peak within a measuring period beyond the agreed power supply limit can increase the electricity cost for the entire year drastically.
With this function, it is possible to deactivate different units independently, depending on the energy
consumption. This allows the customer to easily implement a load shedding system and to save energy
and reduce costs.
 Up to 32 Units can be managed independent.
 32 outputs can be freely defined for 32 units.
 Each output-function can be activated and deactivated individualistic.
 Freely programmable priorities for the devices for load shedding
 Additionally an output-flag can be defined in order link the function with a subsequent module
for additional logic.
 2 digital inputs for the energy-counting pulse and for the synchronization impulse.
 The measuring pulses have a variable ratio (for example, 1000 pulses / kWh)
 The measuring period or synchronous pulse is variable, usually every 15 min.
 Minimum switching-on time as well as maximum switch-off times for each output.
 The timing of a measuring period is set by the power-supplier via a synchronous pulse. If not
existing an internal timer can be used.
 If the contact closes for at least 150 ms, it is recognized as a synchronous pulse and the
measuring period is restarted.

Universal-Function for Energy-optimization and any switching function

To reduce the Energy-demand this function can be used.
Any numbers of Modules are possible, depending from the DB-length.
•Each module has a weekly program Off, all day, Monday-Friday, Monday-Saturday, Sat/Sunday, only Sunday.
•For each module one Time-Program can be defined (from… till).
•Several modules can work on the same output, so different time-slots are possible.
•For each output an analog Input can be defined with a Setpoint, Hysteresis and compare on “>” or “<”. This can be for example a Light Sensor in case of illumination or a Temperatur-Sensor etc.
•For each module a Digital Input (Sensor) can be defined for to activate the output.
•For each module another Digital Input (Sensor) can be defined for to switch off the output.
•For each module an Output can be selected freely.
•The Status of the Time-Function, Analog-Input and Digital Input is displayed.
•The functions of Time-Unit, Analog-Input and Digital Input can be cascaded or used individually.
•Each output can be switched on manually
•The modules can be linked with each other (cascaded).
•No additionally programming is necessary.
•All necessary Text can be input directly in the application.
•This module can be combined with the function load-shedding.
•The output can be used in several modules and parallel to other User-programming in the PLC (OR-Logic).

Softcell: Universal-Module for Braumat

Customized software is very expensive and often not very flexible for changes or adjustments.
To save engineering costs and to give the customer more flexibility and transparency, this universal module has been created.
It offers the possibility to realize a variety of different functions without having to program it by a process image. Also in the field of energy-management.
The function work parallel to the sequential control but is the Master for the Output. That means additional functions can be realized (conditional set, reset of an output) influencing the same Outputs like in the sequential control.

List actual messages, message high Score, which ICM is in Simu, which without Interlock

In Braumat the messages are in a buffer and old messages not easy to find, if they happened some time ago, So although some is still in Alarm, the message is not visible. To avoid that this Message-Picture was created to show all actual Alarms.

Furthermore the ICM with the most Alarms are displayed.
All ICM which are in Simulation or forcing enable are listed as well

Fuzzy-controller for Braumat
This Software presents a fast and easy implementation, in terms of performance, of a fuzzy controller with an average-to-high degree of generality. The controller has two inputs and one output, each being able to withhold seven fuzzy linguistic terms alongside with their appointed fuzzy sets. The output may be determined by using four different defuzzyfication methods: smallest maximum, mean maximum, largest maximum and the maximum center average method.
