Industrial Controller Design Template (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)

1/6/2010

You can use the Industrial Controller design template as a starting point for industrial automation devices. The following list shows examples of industrial automation devices:

  • Human-machine interface (HMI) panels
  • Process automation systems
  • Industrial robots
  • Inspection systems
  • Photo lab film printers
  • Programmable logic controllers
  • Remote control devices
  • Factory monitoring systems

Overview

The Industrial Controller design template provides functionality for industrial automation devices that may require human interaction. These devices control or monitor equipment operation.

This design template targets a display-based industrial controller device with a touch-screen user interface (UI) and a 640 x 480 or larger display.

If you are creating an operating system (OS) design for a device without a display, it might be easier to start by using the Custom Device design template, and then add the necessary Catalog items to that OS design.

With the Windows Embedded CE OS Design Wizard in Platform Builder, you can select the Industrial Controller design template as a starting point for industrial automation devices.

After you create an initial OS design, you can customize the OS design to fit your needs. The Catalog items that you use to configure your OS design can vary.

Security Issues

For information about security issues that can affect an Industrial Controller OS design, see the following topics:

Industrial Controller Catalog Items

The Industrial Controller design template is located in the Industrial Device category in the Windows Embedded CE OS Design Wizard.

The Industrial Controller Catalog items provide enterprise-compatible networking technologies for richer integration into the Enterprise IT infrastructure, such as:

  • Windows Sockets (Winsock)
  • TCP/IP
  • Network user interface applications
  • Distributed application development
  • Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

By default, when you use the Windows Embedded CE OS Design Wizard to create an OS design based on the Industrial Controller design template, Platform Builder includes a specific set of Catalog items in the OS design.

After you finish using the Windows Embedded CE OS Design Wizard, you can add other Catalog items to your OS design. For more information, see Adding an Item from the Catalog.

The following required Catalog items are included in the Industrial Controller design template created by using the Windows Embedded CE OS Design Wizard.

Default Catalog items that are included in the design template do not appear in the wizard. Recommended Catalog items appear as selected in the wizard. You can remove these default recommendations by clearing the associated check boxes in the wizard, if it is necessary.

Note

The following table shows the Catalog items in the order that they appear in the Catalog Items View.
