Object orientation in zenon
Ergonomics in engineering [4/5]
Object orientation is a typical trait of the human brain. It allows us to reduce unnecessary complexity, create connections more quickly and sensibly reuse gained knowledge. Parallel to this there are similar challenges in HMI/SCADA engineering. It is our goal to optimally support you to work efficiently and safely. The ergonomic solution is: Object orientation in zenon.
Predefined elements and functions simplify and speed-up engineering, also when creating multi-touch projects.
- Ergonomic object-orientation
- Consistent object-orientation
- Strong symbol management
- Freely configurable templates
- Use of structure variables
Predefined screen types
zenon provides numerous predefined screen types with special functions: from lists with alarms and events through to trends, recipes and HTML.
Individualized templates for equipment screens enable quick project generation.
Variables and data types
zenon variables are based on a consistent object-orientated concept. The basis of each variable is a data type from which it is derived. When creating a variable, this provides all the properties of the allocated data type.
zenon offers a multitude of symbols for different areas of application. These can also be adapted and saved for reuse. A symbol is a central object which can be inserted at various points of a project. Here the symbol inherits all the changes to the linked symbols. This inheritance can however be individually broken up.
Substituted screen addressing
When displaying several pieces of equipment that have been created the same in zenon, zenon‘s indexed screen addressing dispenses with the need to engineer several identical screens. The concept is similar to referenced symbols because the equipment screen need only be drawn once and can then be populated with different data and functions each time it is called up.
