Automation Server software cycle time

Automation Server software cycle time

Issue

How fast does the software run in an AS?

Product Line

EcoStruxure Building Operation

Environment

Building Operation Automation Server (AS, AS-P or AS-B)

Cause

Knowledge about application cycle time is important when designing project solutions.

Resolution

Both Function Block and Script programs run at a speed defined by the specific time task they are linked to, the available tasks are:

  • Task 1 - 100mS
  • Task 2 - 500mS
  • Task 3 - 1 Second
  • Task 4 - 5 Seconds
  • Task 5 - 10 Seconds

Programs that are not cyclic or time based can be run from a main or executive sequencing program.

The AS cycle speeds are comparable to other Building control systems, but the power of the AS allows many more programs to be run in parallel at higher speeds.
