.NET Engineering Software
Automation Framework is the development platform for the easy and fast development of own integrated .NET-based engineering tools. With Automation Framework you can create integrated and homogenous software applications for different engineering tasks in automation.
the integration platform for IEC 61131 controls
MULTIPROG 10 is based on Automation Framework. This means you can create automation tools modularly from a number of components. Programming according to IEC 61131 can be combined with other .NET-based tools, e.g. for configuration, parameterization, visualization and construction.
FieldDeviceXplorer (FDX) is the FDT tool made by KW-Software. The FDX is a frame application used for integrating standard DTMs for field devices from various manufacturers. It provides the interfaces between the DTM and the used fieldbus or the connected devices respectively and enables the interaction between device and engineering software.
FDX encapsulates the FDT specification in a .NET component. Thus, detailed FDT technology know how is not essential.
FDX is based on the Microsoft .NET technology. Due to the possibility to integrate DTMs as components, engineering and runtime components can be fully integrated into the automation solution.
