WCS stands for Warehouse Control System. WCS is a layer between the WMS system and PLC system management control system. On the one hand, it interacts with the WMS system, accepts commands from the WMS system, and sends it to the PLC system, which drives the line to produce the corresponding mechanical action. On the other hand, it will PLC system status and data reflected in real-time interface, and provide PLC system and production line manual debugging interface.
The WCS system has the following general functions：
1、real time monitoring
Support global screen display.
Support partial magnified display.
Support real-time dynamic picture.
Stop status, operating status, fault status, disabled status, etc. are displayed in different colors or animations.
Read the current parameters of the device from the PLC.
Provide parameter setting interface.
Write the modified device parameters to the PLC.
Support parameter initialize function.
Provide start and stop the transmission line equipment, the solution, reset, data cleansing, initialization and other control functions.
4、Task management (background)
Read barcode information from the PLC.
Send the bar code information and equipment number to WMS, and receive the direction information returned by WMS.
Send the task command (including the direction information) to the PLC.
Reads the PLC task instruction return value, determines whether the instruction completes.
If the task command return value is not read before the new barcode is read, the task is recorded as incomplete and the task is not completed without affecting the sending of the subsequent task instruction.
Task log: including the device number, task serial number, bar code information, road information, the implementation of the results, task launch time, task completion time.
System fault log: includes the device type, fault code, fault description, fault level, failure time and other information.
Operation log (manual control): including control instruction, device code, execution result, instruction issuing time, instruction completion time, operator.
