Hi to all,
I am looking for a tool to make the I/O distribution in my PLC. I have to configure a large system (about 1000 I/Os) with different logics (2oo3, 2oo2, 1oo1), so I have to distribute correctly the I/Os within modules and modules within racks to ensure it makes sense (e.g.: for 2oo3, each of the 3 channels should be in different racks, etc).
How you make this? I have always made this manually but when there are many I/Os it can take a lot of time and risk of mistakes is high.

Thanks for your support.

Note: I am new in this forum. Congratulations to organizers and administrators. Good job.

I know well TIA portal from Siemens but it is a product oriented tool , you can select the right hardware (IO modules, CPU, chassis, communication modules, etc.) but as far as I know you can not make a detailed I/O distribution of redundant signals to build a consistent architecture.

What I'd need is a engineering oriented tool , not related to the hardware. I don't know if this kind of tool really exists.
Thanks in any case.

Hi
Their is a tool from Siemens called ProTime.it is used for the configuration of the system in the engineering phase..
but you are using PCS7 or normal step 7 programing tool or TIA Portal?

Hi, I have taken a look to Protime but it's not what I was looking for.
But I found a very amazing tool that I am using and it really works very well. The tool itself is called IO Builder (http://plcdesign.xyz/en/io-builder/) and is based on Excel.
Thank you for your support.
