  • Patent number: 10755003
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software to facilitate simulating machines used in industrial automation are disclosed herein. In at least one implementation, an API is utilized to establish at least a communication link between a simulation model created in a simulation application and an industrial controller system outside of the simulation model, wherein the simulation model comprises definitions for a virtual representation of at least a portion of a machine used in an industrial automation environment. Data is then exchanged between the industrial controller system and the simulation model over the communication link.

  • Patent number: 10656630
    Abstract: An industrial control system may receive data associated with at least one component within an industrial automation system. The industrial control system may then determine whether the data is associated with at least one of a plurality of data tags, such that the at least one of the plurality of data tags describes at least one characteristic of the data. The industrial control system may then broadcast the data and the at least one of the plurality of data tags in a data feed channel when the data is associated with the at least one of the plurality of data tags.

  • Publication number: 20200089199
    Abstract: An industrial automation component may receive design information associated with an arrangement of one or more industrial automation components in an industrial automation system and identify a first portion of the industrial automation components in the industrial automation system that is unable to interface with a second portion of industrial automation components based on the design information. The industrial automation component may then generate a list of industrial automation components based on the first portion of the industrial automation components and the second portion of industrial automation components, wherein each of the list of industrial automation components is configured to translate a first set of data associated with the first portion of the industrial automation components to a second set of data configured to be at least partly interpretable by the second portion of industrial automation components.

  • Patent number: 10339164
    Abstract: An apparatus, system, method, and program product are disclosed for data exchange in a collaborative environment. A data module receives first data from a first application that corresponds to second data of a second application. The first data has a structured format readable by the first application, but not readable by the second application. The structured format includes a semantic language format. A conversion module converts the first data from the semantic language format to an intermediate data having a format readable by the second application. A synchronization module synchronizes the intermediate data with the second data such that changes made to the first data by the first application are replicated in the second data of the second application.

  • Publication number: 20180270321
    Abstract: An industrial automation component may receive identification information associated with a user of the industrial automation component and determine whether a profile that corresponds to the identification information exists in a database. When the profile does not exist, the industrial automation component may receive a graphical interface template configured to be displayed on a graphical user interface (GUI) associated with the industrial automation component, one or more parameter names configured to associate one or more measurements acquired by the industrial automation component, pre-load information comprising data configured to enable the industrial automation component to operate, or any combination thereof. The industrial automation component may then and generate a user interface view for the GUI based on the graphical interface template, the parameter names, the pre-load information, or any combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 9760077
    Abstract: Content management includes populating a library with modular objects and metadata associated with the modular objects. In response to a query, the library can be searched based in part on the metadata. The query can relate to implementation of an industrial process. One or more modular objects in the library can be identified as satisfying the query. A result of the query can be output and the output can include the identified modular objects and the respective metadata associated with the identified modular objects. The metadata can be anything known about the object that might not be accessible at runtime control.

  • Publication number: 20160179993
    Abstract: A cloud-based multi-tier cyber analytics system is provided for integration of cloud-side and on-premise analytics for industrial systems. The analytics system includes an emulation runtime engine that executes a virtualized controller on a cloud platform. The runtime engine serves as a core analytics component by providing a control-level analytics engine with application programming interfaces (APIs) that enable seamless interaction of distributed simulations, cloud level services, and hardware industrial controllers. A cloud-based framework integrates soft control, hard control, and simulation with cloud-level services, and includes components that facilitate near real-time data streaming from the plant floor to the cloud platform to yield an industrial Internet of Things (IoT).
