How fast does the software run in an AS?

Issue

What is the software cycle time?

Product Line

SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

Programs - Script & Function block

Cause

How does the controller speed compare to other systems?

Resolution

Both Function Block and Script programs run at a speed defined by the specific time task they are linked to, the available tasks are:

Task 1 - 100mS

Task 2 - 500mS

Task 3 - 1 Second

Task 4 - 5 Seconds

Task 5 - 10 Seconds

Programs that are not cyclic or time based can be run from a main or executive sequencing program.

The AS cycle speeds are comparable to other Building control systems, but the power of the AS allows many more programs to be run in parallel at higher speeds.
