Flexible and intelligent parameterization – with AutomationXplorer+

AutomationXplorer+ is a software tool for the parameterization of intelligent devices, sensors, and actuators. The key feature: an FDT (Field Device Type) interface for extending any devices/tools (DTMs).

AutomationXplorer+ software

FDT/DTM technology is the basis for consistent parameterization with the AutomationXplorer+ software. FDT ensures that the platform is open for third-party software user interfaces and communication drivers, as well as for various networks.

This platform represents the framework within which the device-specific user interfaces (DTMs) can be called and used – and all by non-proprietary means.

If you therefore want to parameterize intelligent devices such as sensors or actuators centrally, AutomationXplorer+ is the ideal software for you.

Maximum control up to the field

AutomationXplorer+ enables parameterization beyond network boundaries – right up to the sensor or actuator in the field. With point-to-point communication you can access your devices using Ethernet, INTERBUS, and HART, for example.

With integrated TCI interface

Do you want to connect your DTM user interfaces to the Siemens engineering system? Then call AutomationXplorer+ via the Tool Calling Interface (TCI). This starts your DTM and you can parameterize IO-Link sensors quickly, for example.

What can you use AutomationXplorer+ for?

Use AutomationXplorer+ to modify device parameters: for example, in the case of IO-Link sensors for adjusting distance measurement or in the case of HART sensors for diagnosing flow measurement.
