Manuals

Hardware

  • ICON Installation - This manual describes how to install and connect an ICON to a network and your PC.
  • Power/Bus  - This manual describes the Power/Bus module installation and hardware configuration.
  • Modbus Introduction - This manual describes the Modbus I/O system.
  • Modcombo - This manual discribes the installation, configuration and programming of the Modcombo analog/digital Modbus I/O board.
  • 1-Wire - This manual describes how to program the Modbus to 1-wire interface on the Power/Bus module.

Software

  • System parameters - This manual describes how to configure the system parameters for an ICON program.
  • Programming - This manual describes the user interface for programming the ICON.
  • Program instruction list - This manual describes all the program statement building blocks and the variable system.
  • Program debugging - This manual describes the user interface for debugging programs on the ICON.
  • Creating an HMI - This manual describes the user interface for configuring HMI screens.
  • HMI objects- This manual lists all the HMI objects that may be used to build an HMI screen.
  • Periodic files - This manual describes how to set up period files for historical data logging
  • Event files - This manual describes how to set up event (alarm) files for historical data logging.
  • Selection sets - This manual describes how to create selection sets which are used by the HMI and historical data files for mapping status values to text strings.
  • HMI runtime operations - This manual describes how to navigate HMI screens in a deployed system.
  • Reporting operations - This manual describes how to display historical data that has been saved in the periodic and event files.
  • File transfer operations - This manual describes how to transfer programs and other files between your PC and the ICON controller for backup and restore operations.

Tutorials and examples

  • Modbus I/O - This manual describes a very simple program to operate the Modcombo I/O board.
  • Tutorial - This manual describes step by step how to create a simple ICO controller program and build a simple HMI screen.
  • 1-wire I/O - This manual describes a simple program to operate Dallas 1-wire I/O devices.
  • Example skeleton program - This manual describe a very usefull programming structure that includes getting Modbus data, converting to engineering units, validating the data, creating historical periodic data, creating alarms and saving event data. This could provide the structure for many real-world data acquisition, logging and control programs.
