The MicroNet™ Plus control system is an upgrade for NetCon and is a flexible, state-of-the-art digital control system designed specifically for prime mover control applications such as:
MicroNet Plus features, including redundant or simplex CPUs, modular I/O, flexible software environment, and highly accurate time synchronization make it ideal for its target markets:
MicroNet Plus control system flexibility and modularity adapt from simple applications with limited I/O to the most complex applications and processes with extensive I/O. I/O modules and application software provide the control engineer with the flexibility to control or monitor every parameter and process of typical applications, including:
MicroNet Plus features and performance are specifically designed for the rigorous requirements of prime mover control. CPU capability, application software recursion rates and determinism, software algorithms, I/O signal conditioning and filtering, and numerous other features combine with long-term support and Woodward service to ensure a smooth start-up and long support life. These features create the ideal product when performance matters:
The MicroNet Plus control is a VME-based, modular control system with redundant or simplex CPU and power supply options and a variety of I/O module choices. Additional chassis may be added to accommodate larger systems.
CPUs may be simplex or redundant, depending on customer requirements. A simplex CPU system can be upgraded to redundant CPUs by simply adding a second CPU and making a minor software change.
I/O Module selection is customized to match customer requirements. I/O can be configured in any combination of simplex, duplex, or triplex and in any combination of analog, discrete, and specialty modules. I/O modules allow for hot replacement without removing control power.
The MicroNet Plus control utilizes Woodward’s proven graphical application programmer (GAP) software. This function block format programming language provides an efficient means to program prime mover control logic. A Ladder Logic programming environment is also available for those users familiar with this programming structure.
