Freelance Engineering, the engineering tool for the Freelance DCS, is used for off- and on-line configuration of AC 900F, AC 800F, AC 700F and Freelance heritage controllers.
It supports the IEC 61131-3 languages (FBD, IL, LD, SFC, and ST). Through these standardized programming languages and graphical user interface, creation of application programs becomes child's play.
A comprehensive function block library with industry proven and tested functions saves extensive programming and testing effort. When adding a function block for the process station, the associated faceplate is created in the operator level. Your application programs are formally checked for completeness and consistency.
Freelance Engineering has built-in support for FOUNDATION Fieldbus, PROFIBUS-DP and device configuration via FDT/DTM and by that it easily supports for built-in Asset Management.
With focus on Engineering Efficiency in the 2019 version we improved all filtering and sorting functionality. Also the auto routing capabilities in the Function Block Diagram editor has been improved. With this new version it is possible to backup / restore the whole project application file including all operator graphic displays, logic programs, and even field device parameters directly via SD Card within the controller (AC 700F and AC 900F).
