MachineShop is an integrated suite of Windows-based software for developing Interact HMI and MachineLogic PC-based control applications.
The MachineShop suite is an integrated development environment including MachineLogic and Interact software products. MachineShop is designed with an easy to use toolbar for the management of machine control projects, navigation of the development environment and the ability to transfer projects to a runtime target, such as one of CTC's Powerstations. The MachineShop suite of products includes development software for:

Interact - version 6.0

MachineLogic - New PC based Logic Controller (PCLC)

MachineShop Toolbar - New Project Management Tool (IPM replacement)
For current Interact users, the MachineShop toolbar replaces the Interact Project Manager (IPM). MachineShop provides the project management and transfer options that are found in IPM, with the addition of new and powerful features such as project documentation, Ethernet and Compact FLASH transfers.

Project Management
MachineShop's Project Management is a simple, intuitive way to configure and manage automation projects. It conveniently collects configuration data and runtime files into a central location. By allowing MachineLogic and Interact projects to appear in a single, unified environment, development tasks are simplified.

The Project Management allows the user to...

Backup and restore data from storage devices such as disks, hard drives and networks.
Document all project information
Access data on runtime storage requirements and components used for the application
Easily perform project tasks with the guidance of "Wizards"
Use a common tag list for MachineLogic and Interact.

PowerStation Transfer
Once an application has been developed, MachineShop's PowerStation Transfer manages and transfers files that are needed to create or update a runtime project. These convenient tools simplify the transfer process, so projects can go online quickly.
PowerStation Transfer can...

Automatically transfer run time projects including Interact and/or MachineLogic
Back up and restore runtime projects
Transfer projects via the Internet
Transfer with a serial connection or direct to Compact FLASH
Help users select transfer options, using Wizard-based guidance.
