The KS2000 configuration software permits project design, commissioning and parameterisation of the Beckhoff Fieldbus Box modules and of the Beckhoff Bus Terminals. The connection between the fieldbus components and the PC is established via the serial or USB connection cable provided, or via the network and TCP/IP. The KS2000 configuration software for Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista or Windows 7 operating systems has a friendly user interface, making work comfortable and convenient.
The KS2000 software provides an easy way to access the parameters in the fieldbus station. Specific high-level dialogues are available for all the Bus Couplers and all the intelligent Bus Terminals as well as the Fieldbus Box modules. They can be used to modify the settings easily. It is, alternatively, possible to parameterise the fieldbus components through direct access to all the internal registers.
The KS2000 offers access to the process images of the fieldbus components. In this way it is possible to monitor the input and output images of the Bus Terminals. Access to individual signal channels is additionally supported via a scope functionality, which enables, for example, a wiring test to be carried out.
In addition to the serial connection, the KS2000 services are also available via the fieldbus (e.g. PROFIBUS, Lightbus, Ethernet) via ADS. Via Ethernet, the KS2000 can thus also access BC9000 Ethernet controller Bus Terminals or CX Embedded PC Bus Terminals.
The settings of a complete station can be saved and reinstated on the controller if required.
