The Internet of Things (IoT) was first recognized as a concept in 1999. It refers to the ever-growing web of network-enabled devices we interact with on a daily basis. From smartphones and wearable technology like Fitbit, to cars and streetlights, a vast multitude of objects and machines now have wireless Internet connectivity and data-tracking capabilities.

At Horner Automation, we have always made it a priority to adapt our automation systems to the latest computing technology. We have made no exception with the IoT. Horner has stepped into the industrial IoT with WebMI, our new software that allows you to access your Horner OCS from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

According to projections from research firm Gartner, the number of connected devices in the industrial IoT is expected to double -- and, in the automotive sector, grow by five times. As the industrial sector becomes more mobile and better networked, Horner will be there to provide wireless industrial automation solutions to meet your needs.

As convenient as the IoT can be, it does not come without concerns. As the number of connected devices increases, the risks to cybersecurity increase. What happens if your network goes down? What happens if someone gains access to controls or data they aren’t permitted to access? Events like these could result in corruption of important data, loss of productivity, system failure, or hazardous working conditions.

We have taken these risks into consideration with the development of WebMI. External threats to your networked automation devices are cut off by128-bit SSL encryption and industry standard hash security. Internally, you never have to worry about WebMI putting undue strain on your network. Because WebMI is enabled through the microSD card in your OCS controller, it can operate within your existing IT structure without overstressing it. This ensures continued network uptime.

WebMI also includes features that protect your networked devices through a series of permissions under your control. Devices must be registered in WebMI to have any access to your OCS, the operations it controls, or the data it collects. You can also restrict the screens that can be accessed by each registered device -- and what can be controlled from those screens. This ensures you have full control over access, preventing unauthorized or untrained staff from accessing sensitive data or processes.

Horner is proud to continuously evolve to meet the technological needs of the industrial sector. As the web and automation continue to come together through the industrial IoT, we will continue to provide solutions to improve productivity, efficiency, and safety.

For over 20 years Horner has lived up to their reputation of being known as a company that produces strong engineered hardware solutions. Customers and potential customers see us as a company that makes our OCS (Operator Control Station) all-in-one controllers, I/O solutions and communications products. In fact, as the originator of the all-in-one design, the Horner name is synonymous with automation controllers with a built-in operator interface and I/O. Because our team at Horner has continued to build upon our successes in the market place, we have steadily expanded the product offerings to our current family of OCS controllers, which include a full range of products from 2-1/2&dquot; screens all the way up to 22&dquot; screens; all with varying I/O options. We are proud of the fact that Horner does industrial automation hardware well.

Horner has just unveiled software that provides a revolutionary new way to remotely monitor and control machines. The Horner OCS‐Web family of software solutions has launched. With our first SaaS (Software as a Service) feature (WebMI), we have introduced customers to a simple, cost effect way to develop state‐of‐the‐art scalable vector graphics (SVG)‐based HMI screens and HTML5‐based web publishing software. Customers are able to do it all on their own, without any heavy‐duty networking or web programming experience. It is all done within the familiar environment of Horner’s proven programming software (Cscape). Contributing to the global trend known as the Internet of Things (or loT), our Horner WebMI instantly connects users to their automated applications. With WebMI, you have the ability to remotely monitor and control easier and faster than ever before, all through your phone, computer, or tablet ‐ providing users with the necessary insights to grow and improve their business.

WebMI provides a remote gateway directly to many of the Horner OCS XL products. Simply by providing a network connection from the OCS, the user can choose to publish the screens that they have developed on the OCS, or they can develop independent screens to publish. The OCS acts as the Web Server, so no additional expensive computer hardware or software is required to make this remote monitoring and control possible, and now all of this can be done from the palm of your hand. To do this seamlessly, we have incorporation high‐level security algorithms like: 128 bit SSL encryption, Industry Standard Hash Security Technology as well as the ability to work within their existing IT structure, ensuring continued uptime at all times.

Our controllers have helped to make our customers' operations run effectively for decades. Now by adding our new software solution, WebMI, we will continue to keep them running; even if they are not directly in front of the controller.

With Horner WebMI, you can monitor and control plant data from the palm of your hand. Within our proven programming environment, Cscape, WebMI quickly connects users to their automated applications, and customers have the ability to remotely monitor and control easier and faster than ever before using whatever device you choose. Through your phone, computer, or tablet, WebMI provides the necessary insights to grow and improve customer's' businesses.


Before WebMI, customers had to piece together overly complex and expensive SCADA systems to deliver the ability to monitor and control systems through the internet. In addition to the initial, sometimes substantial investment in SCADA software, traditional SCADA systems also may require sophisticated PC/server hardware to house the multiple software layers. Now with WebMI, this process is simple, secure and less costly. Horner has created a system that turns each Horner controller into a web host allowing customers to access the unit directly online from whatever device they choose. The web hosting software is located in the unit's microSD card, which can also be used to log any data a customer needs to make their business more efficient and successful. Each unit can share new insights into the inner workings of your process, and they all communicate with each other.


WebMI has a FREE base package and more comprehensive  packages with modest prices based upon number of users, tags, and pages. It utilizes the new Cscape 9.70 and the latest revision of Firmware 14.14Contact us today for more information or visit us online!

Horner Canada released their latest in their leading XL seires of All-in-One Controllers: the EXL6 OCS Controller, offering enhanced resolution, and faster logic execution than the previous XL6 OCS Controller, partnered with the ease-of-use and functionality of its predecessors.


“We’re trying to improve upon what is currently in the market,” said Phil Horner, CEO Horner APG. “In doing so, we started with what we already have to offer, and made it better, creating the EXL6 controller.”

The EXL6 OCS controller is an evolution of the historically popular XL6e controller; known for its comparable size, color touchscreen and versatility. Building from the XL6e’s proven foundation, the EXL6 makes several enhancements to the overall design of this mid-range OCS controller offered by Horner such as:

  • Improved resolution on the 5.7” VGA color touchscreen at 640 x 480 pixels
  • Faster logic execution with a scan rate of 0.013 mS/K (about twice the speed as the XL6e)
  • The addition of an active serial port resulting in three ports total

Utilizing the current Cscape 9.6, Service Pack 4 and the latest revision of Firmware 14.12, the resolution and graphics on the EXL6 are more comprehensive and enhanced than on previous models. Along with better resolution and faster logic execution, the EXL6 also sees improvements in the overall screen response time – making screen transitions and overall application functions more streamlined and efficient.

“The new EXL6 OCS controller is going to make headway among competitors,” said Horner. “With the size and price of an average mid-line piece of hardware, but reinforced with the interfaces, programming, and capabilities of top-of-the-line systems, the EXL6 is going to turn heads and improve operations.

KNOW THE BENEFITS OF INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION

Posted by Christine
Christine

User is currently offline
in Automation

The idea of automation has a history of making workers uneasy. When some people hear "automation," they think "layoffs," but the truth is that automation makes their jobs easier and increases productivity. In fact, when automation is added to an existing manufacturing workforce,productivity rises by 2% on an average year.

Industrial automation uses control systems such as computers or robots and information technology, like Horner’s OCS controllers, for controlling different types of processes and machinery. These control systems can perform tasks that humans can’t on their own. Many of our controllers can read more than 1,000 points of data per second- something humans cannot do without automation.

Industrial work is strenuous. It requires precise attention to detail and the ability to effectively multitask. These are not easy tasks; with short-term memory, people can only recall 5-9 pieces of unique data at a time. Stress and exhaustion make these more difficult for people to maintain over time. This can lead to decreased productivity, lower quality, and ‐‐ most importantly ‐‐ a lack of safety. Automation breaks past the barriers of efficiency -- and there are many benefits of choosing Horner controllers in the industrial industry.

Facilities use Horner automation products to perform multiple tasks at once, help a facility run 24/7, and log endless amounts of data for review. Without modern automation practices, there are increased incidences of human error, safety issues and wasted energy. Examples of predictive and preventative maintenance systems that rely on automation are in every factory and process application throughout the world.

Our controllers are all-in-one, meaning they provide control (IEC-61131), Graphical HMI (2-1/2" – 22" screens), built in and remote I/O support, and various other communication platforms (including Ethernet, CAN and Serial). This innovative architecture results in a control solution with lower maintenance costs, easier implemented upgrades, and less room for development and commissioning issues. Our OCS controllers have many additional features within each individual product, including Data Logging, networking, remote monitoring and control, and more. Our Cscape programming package helps manage all of this from a common environment, without the need to keep track of multiple separate devices for each of these tasks.

Automation takes the risks and difficulties out of industrial work, helping people work more efficiently. With Horner controllers, it’s all made simple.

5 KEYS TO OVERCOMING TRADITIONAL PLC LIMITATIONS

Posted by Christine

5 Keys to Overcoming the Limitations of Traditional PLCs

"PLCs are well adapted to a range of automation tasks. These are typically industrial processes in manufacturing where the cost of developing and maintaining the automation system is high relative to the total cost of the automation, and where changes to the system would be expected during its operational life. PLCs contain input and output devices compatible with industrial pilot devices and controls; little electrical design is required, and the design problem centers on expressing the desired sequence of operations. PLC applications are typically highly customized systems, so the cost of a packaged PLC is low compared to the cost of a specific custom-built controller design. On the other hand, in the case of mass-produced goods, customized control systems are economical. This is due to the lower cost of the components, which can be optimally chosen instead of a 'generic' solution, and where the non-recurring engineering charges are spread over thousands or millions of units." ‐ Wikipedia.

Traditional PLC configurations struggle to meet modern automation requirements without adding external, sometimes third party hardware and software to complete an entire control system. Automation systems are no longer solely about simple ladder logic used to replace relays ‐ modern automation systems are designed for speed of implementation, flexibility, scalability and connectivity; all while providing detailed user facing information, in real time. To meet these requirements, engineers and integrators have become adept at coupling many different products from multiple manufactures to appear seamless.

When multiple software and hardware solutions are combined from different manufacturers or even disparate products from the same manufacturer, the level of complexity increases. This complexity may cause an increase in development time, both at the project inception and with future project changes. Often times initial design considerations limit future expansion capabilities. Additionally, the ability to provide integrated I/O options, integrated communications, integrated motion control, graphical user interfaces, and flexible data collection comes at a very high price ‐ if it even exists within a traditional PLC solution.

Incorporating one of our All-in-One controllers, rather than a traditional PLC into an automation design, allows engineers and users the opportunity to take advantage of a completely integrated solution, manufactured by one company. Below are five keys our controllers provide to overcome these traditional PLC limitations.

  1. Software

    Traditional PLC based applications are programmed using proprietary software. Some projects may include: PLC programming software, HMI development software, SCADA software, and data collection systems, which make a project extremely complex and very costly. With an engineered solution consisting of multiple manufacturers' products, there is a cost and learning curve for every element of the project.

    Our All-in-One controllers allow for programming and configuration of all aspects of the automation project within a singular environment. Through Cscape software, We allow programming in our enhanced ladder logic environment as well as in all of the IEC-61131 programming languages, a complete HMI graphical configuration suite, HTML5 web development, and a full featured motion configuration environment ‐ all for little or no cost.

  2. I/O

    Traditional PLC based applications include options for I/O to be mounted with the processor in a backplane or on a local bus. Some traditional solutions also have provisions to support remote I/O on one or more network bus options.

    Our All-in-One controllers provide local I/O options built directly into the controller/HMI. These options are included with the part number selection and for many applications, eliminate the need for purchasing additional costly add-on I/O. But for projects that need higher I/O counts, our All-in-One controllers also provide seamless connectively to many different network bus options; many of which can be configured to run simultaneously. Our team at Horner provides a wide selection of proven I/O for almost any application.

  3. Communications

    While times have changed with regard to a traditional PLC’s ability provide network communications capabilities, the fact remains that most traditional PLC manufacturers provide most of their support around their network of choice. Whether it is Ethernet/IP, ProfiNet or even Modbus/TCP, manufacturers center their core support around one or two select methods of communications.

    With our All-in-One controller solutions, we have maintained the support of all the communication options since the beginning of our development. So rather than starting fresh with each new product release, we have continued development and support around the legacy direct driver connections as well as a core of CAN based protocols including among others, J1939. Horner has also developed around most of the popular industrial Ethernet protocols like: Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP and even BAC/Net.

  4. Connectivity

    Traditional PLCs provide limited connectivity options without incorporating additional modules or third party interfaces. Gateways, unique software, and custom hardware interfaces have become the standard when trying to connect traditional PLCs to field devices.

    In many of our All-in-One model options, a customer will have the ability to simultaneously use the following hardware connections: two independent Ethernet ports, three serial ports, two CAN Bus ports, and the widest range of on board I/O in the industry.

  5. Data Collection Actual data collection within the confines of a traditional PLC doesn’t exist. Solution providers have learned to “add-on” SCADA software and the associated PC hardware to run the SCADA. Even HMI offerings from most manufacturers do not include the ability to log real-time data. Even if logging data into registers within the core PLC memory were acceptable, retrieving that data for use within any type of analytical environment would prove to be less than productive.

    Our products at Horner have been designed with data collection in mind from day one. Introducing the very first micro-SD logging solution many years ago, we immediately began to understand the value of real-time data collection and retrieval. Through almost 25 years of perfecting our software, data logging continues to be one of the most renowned features within our Cscape environment. Directly through the OCS products and our upcoming WEBMI feature, customers have the ability to:

    • Visualize historical trends and historical data in many other formats
    • Capture information without the use of expensive add-on devices or software
    • Present this data in HTML5 format through the use of this powerful real-time data collection functionality, allowing customers to interact remotely via any internet enabled device

While traditional PLC solutions have provided a structure for customers to build customized automation applications for many years, the current requirements of speed to market, data collection, and remote connectivity provide the perfect venue for a creative modern solution like our All-in-One, OCS controllers at Horner.

SmartBlock I/O features a variety of Analog and Specialty modules. SmartBlock I/O is designed to compliment the popular SmartStix Digital I/O family. These two I/O families can be used to expand the I/O capacity of just about any Operator Control Station (OCS) by merely a few points - or potentially thousands of points.

SmartStix I/O is an ideal terminal-block style Digital I/O system - but SmartBlock I/O is built for Analog. Like it's SmartStix cousin, SmartBlock I/O is mounted on DIN-rail, although through hold mounting is also supported for flexibility. SmartBlock can be mounted locally in the same panel as the OCS, or can be mounted remotely up to 500 meters away. SmartBlock is based on the proven CsCAN network, which uses industry-standard CAN chipsets for noise immunity and data integrity. But unlike other industrial implementation of CAN like DeviceNet, SmartBlock's CsCAN network sets the bar with its ease of configuration in the CsCAPE software.

SmartBlock has numerous convenience features...a dual CsCAN plug for easy "in & out" network connections...spring clamp removable terminal blocks for quick field wiring...indicator LEDs for power, module and network status...a hinged door for dip switch access, and much more! Check it out!
