RexCore Plus for Pigeon PLC
Frequently asked questions
Any of these questions on your mind?
What is included in the licence?
The licence allows you to run your algorithms on a single Pigeon PLC. As soon as the licence is bound to your Pigeon PLC, it cannot be used for another device. The development tools are free to use on any computer.
How is the licence delivered?
The licence is delivered via e-mail as an electronic token, which you combine with the identifiers of your Pigeon PLC to form a valid licence key. The procedure is described in detail in the Getting started guide.
Is it possible to upgrade the licence later?
Absolutely! You can buy the optional communication drivers whenever you need them. When the time comes, go ahead and upgrade your RexCore licence to Plus or Professional version.
What if my Pigeon PLC is broken?
In 99% of the cases, problems are solved by reflashing the PLC with an updated operating system image. In such a case, your licence is still valid. In other cases you contact us and we'll do our best to find a win-win resolution.
Optional add-ons for your licence
Enjoy the modularity of the REXYGEN system and select only the modules you really need.
Modbus communication driver
Connect your Pigeon PLC to energy meters, frequency inverters, remote I/O units, other PLCs or SCADA systems using the Modbus protocol. Your Pigeon PLC can act as Modbus master or Modbus slave. Both TCP and RTU (serial communication) variants are supported.
Driver for communication with Siemens PLCs
Integrate Siemens PLCs in your project. Monitor inputs, control outputs, exchange data. Ethernet connection is supported (S7 models and LOGO! 7 and 8 series).
Driver for database access
Connect your Pigeon PLC to database systems (e.g. MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL). You can archive measured data, read user-defined parameters, read predefined sequences or recipes for individual machines, store data for reports in ERP and BMS systems, etc.
On-site automatic tuning of controllers
If you ever struggled with PI or PID controller settings, you understand that automatic tuning of controller parameters saves a huge amount of your precious time and optimizes behaviour of the controlled technology.
