Q.monixx APP1: Architecture pattern for the test.con application design

The application of a universal architecture pattern was proposed, in order to receive an application design for the application development with test.con which is as transparent and comprehensive as possible.


Usage of Q.brixx-based systems at the Bosch Thermotechnik GmbH

Bosch Thermotechnik GmbH, in D 73249 Wernau, currently uses 3 Q.brixx-based systems to simulate heating systems. In addition, there will be 3 more systems in 2017. For 2018 further 7 systems will be procured.


Save Dynamic Text with 256 characters in a file

For Dynamic Texts there are no File Service Functions. However, to save Dynamic Texts in a file, the texts are converted into TEXT vectors and saved as vector of TEXTs. When reading, the TEXT vector is converted into a Dynamic Text.


Show Min/Max values of tweezers on a screen of the Q.station

In this video series you will learn from an example, how you can step by step write a small program and how you can upload it on the Q.station. We are explaining, what a user space project is and how the display of the Q.station is programmed. Furthermore you will receive some background information about graphical programming with test.con 6.0, so you can soon create your own project without having much beforehand programming knowledge.

Here you can go to the video series...

Power Measurement Application

In the example for a power measurement application, the approach of a project using the programming system test.con, the configuration tool test.commander, the Test Controller Q.station and Q.bloxx modules is shown.

PID Controller

A proportional integral derivative controller (PID controller) is a control loop feedback mechanism (controller) commonly used in industrial control systems.

Here you can find examples and explanations about the PID controller...

RS232 Communication on Q.station

This example shows a very simple program which writes an ASCII string by a push of a button through the interface converter connected to USB 1 (Port 100).

OBD2 to Gantner Q.station

Here you can find an example for the On-Board Diagnostics interface (OBD2). The OBD2 protocol enables monitoring organizations to access relevant measuring channels of the Engine coolant temperature (ECU), RPM, ignition timing, injection amount and other channels are available through this protocol.

Program display with Page Flow Diagram

With the Page Flow Diagram (PFD), you can program software solutions with test.con. They contain control and indicating elements, which are arranged over various sites and masks.

In this example how you can see how to program your touch screen using a Page Flow Diagram.

Right use of Flow Chart blocks

The Flow Chart library provides the possibility to realize flow chart programming, e.g. it provides function blocks to manipulate the control flow of the program.

With this kind of programming, new programming concepts can be implemented. Multiple quasi-parallel flows can run in one task now. Furthermore, further flows can be controlled with special parameters, so a flow can be stopped or it can be restarted. Read more...

Setting instances

In this example you will learn how to set parameters and instances and how to change between the two modes.
