ADWIN Real Time concept
ADwin systems are characterized by deterministic execution of intelligent data acquisition and control applications. This is achieved by a local CPU (DSP), the Real-Time heart of every ADwin system. The CPU is responsible for all Real-Time functions and guarantees deterministic process execution, independent of the PC and its workload. ADwin systems work in close cooperation with the Windows-PC, but there is a clear job sharing: the job of the ADwin system is to execute fast and deterministic processes in Real-Time, while the Windows PC performs standard functions such as displaying graphical user interfaces for applications, visualization of data, and data base accesses.
ADwin systems add Real-Time capability to a Windows PC; if the Windows PC crashes, the ADwin system will continue to run, maintaining the integrity of the application.
In addition to the CPU, there is a large local memory for program code and measurement data, analog I/Os, digital I/Os, counters, different interfaces, expansions and options.
The communication between the ADwin system and the PC is done via Ethernet or USB. Fieldbus interfaces allow the connection to PLCs, while a bootloader supports complete stand-alone operation of the ADwin system.
