Project Definition Tool (PDT)

The flexibly expandable Project Definition Tool (PDT) supports the development, documentation, testing, production and operation of applications for controllers and displays in complex vehicles and machines.

After completing the definitions, use the integrated Auto Code Builder to generate the embedded software code for the selected target hardware with a mouse click – in the programming language you select. The generation of the code is supported for both controllers and displays.

The Embedded Core is the basis for an executable software application on the controller devices hardware. The robust and tested middleware is available to all the controllers of the tool chain.

The package is completed with the library modules combined in toolboxes and extensive protocol stacks. The Vision² MATCH Library is provided for display applications.

Use PDT to

  • define the requirements for the machine control system
  • describe the control setup and architecture and also the derived software architecture
  • define the controllers and displays used
  • specify the machine communication with the associated protocols and messages
  • define the error management
  • set up the data structures for variable parameters

MATCH Software Suite supports a variety of hardware platforms.
IDE
MATCH uses today's conventional programming languages, which means it uses standardised or freely accessible IDEs to develop the application software – not only for machine controls but also for visualisation solutions.Using standardised programming languages enables the developed function software to be readily reused in other projects.
MATCH provides optimised software solutions for the programming of embedded controllers in the 'C' programming language. The comprehensively tested basic MATCH software has been used successfully in mobile equipment for many years and in every branch of industry.The modules are normally TÜV-certified – up to the safety levels SIL2, PL'd' and AgPL'd' (SRL2).
MATCH provides comprehensive libraries for display-visualisation solutions under CODESYS® 3.X. The solutions are supported thereby with and without the touch function.
The electrohydraulic systems are developed on the basis of MATCH according to the V-model and are tested comprehensively in all of the available configurations and ranges of functions. In terms of functional safety, we offer solutions up to the safety levels PL'd' or AgPL'd' (SRL2).
Our accessories simplify the work involved in software development, software testing or problem analysis at the machine.
MATCH Software Suite also allows remote access to machine data – either through direct access to the service tools via WLAN or through the use of different mobile standards and, in the future, using a cloud-based approach.
