Title: METHOD FOR CONFIGURING AN AUTOMATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for configuring an automation system (1) which comprises a machine controller (2), at least one control device (3) which is connected to the machine controller (2), at least one actuator controller (4), in particular a motor controlling device, and at least one actuator (5). The machine controller (2) outputs control commands to the control device (3), and the control device (3) is designed to convert the control commands into actuator movements. The method has the following steps: establishing a communication link between a display and input device (12) and one of the actuator controllers (4), providing specifiable information from the actuator controller (4) to the display and input device (12), presenting the information, inputting an actuator identifier of the actuator (5) into the display and input device (12), reading actuator parameters from a parameter store (17) by means of the display and input device (12) using the actuator identifier, providing the read actuator parameters from the display and input device (12) to the actuator controller (4), processing the actuator parameters in the actuator controller (4), and disconnecting the communication link.
