The nV-Tool is a programming software that is uniformly used across all Toshiba's industrial and process controllers*1.
It is the only programming tool needed to fully develop, test and debug application programs. Its versatility, ease of use, and built-in library of pre tested application function blocks allows the programmer to quickly deploy application solutions. The CPU can store the complete program, with documentation, or just the run-time application.
The nV-Tool uses a full graphic editor to place, arrange and relocate symbols on the worksheet. It makes automatic connections, line crossings and groundings. The nV-Tool supports IEC 61131-3 compliant LD/FBD/SFC/ST languages. Multiple languages can be used on the same worksheet (block).
A variety of features are available for maintaining and support of the type1 light program. The on-line graphic editor shows LD power flow, FB values, and SFC active steps. The Synchro Trend, I/O force and data monitor are
also very useful in
An event log monitors and records every change in system status.
The nV-Tool has a symbol editor for creation of detailed graphic symbols unique to specific items of equipment or special functions.
Function blocks can they be replaced with graphic symbols for easier visual comprehension of program action and flow.
Examples of graphic symbols include: ASDs, Lead-Lag-Stand-by arrangements, Motor Starters, Valve Controllers, etc.
The XML file import/export function allows exchange of programs between different V Series/nv series controllers. A project can grow as need or split out into separate controllers if required. XML files are compliant with the industry-standard PLCopen XML Schema Ver. 1.0.
Simulator (planned), remote engineering packages and other software ensure efficient programming, high quality and easy maintenance.
