Price Guide (Inc GST): POA

A common tag database and rich development tools separate Studio from any other automation software on the market.

Studio, based on Microsoft Visio 2000, contains three key components:

1. Studio Control Logic

A flowchart development tool for fast, intuitive control logic. The Studio Control Logic Run-time engine executes the flowcharts on Windows XP, NT, Windows 2000 or Windows CE platforms (such as the WinPLC).

2. Studio HMI

A full-featured HMI development tool that also utilizes the power of Microsoft Visio to create rich, data-powered screen graphics for operator interface panels. The HMI is linked to the same tag database used in the Control Logic component.

3. Studio Connectivity Center

A sophisticated network configuration and management tool that allows you to easily identify and instantly connect to system hardware.

  • SQL Interface for easy, direct ODBC communication integration
  • Advanced Visio graphics
  • Over 3,500 new or improved smart shapes, with background animations
  • Background animations allow universal buttons and indicators on HMI screens
