Design and functions
For example, ODK functions can be used
to generate a message
to determine the value of a tag
to change the object properties in a screen
to export a database table
IndustrialX employs the ActiveX technology for the process visualization. Configuration wizards make the creation of your own standard displays easy. IndustrialX controls are flexible and can be tailored to meet the requirements of the most varied applications, for example specific for applications in the chemical, glass or paper manufacturing industries. IndustrialX offers code templates for easy linking customerspecific ActiveX controls to WinCC data sources that are themselves suitable for use on Web Navigator clients.
Quick and easy to configure
Using the IndustrialX Control Designer, you create one IndustrialX control for process objects of the same type, e.g. for several motors. Linking is carried out of the individual data of a data record e.g. the target value, actual value, temperature and operating mode. Once you have created the IndustrialX control, you can integrate it into pictures as often as you like. At integration, you only need to specify the name of the data record. At runtime, each integration of the IndustrialX Control then automatically works with the data of the assigned data record. Each time the IndustrialX Control is used, you do not need to spend time and effort on linking the individual data.
Carry out modifications on a central basis
If you have a lot of IndustrialX Controls, which are already integrated in process pictures, you can easily change them later. Such changes are made once at a central location and can affect the graphic representation as well as the processing logic. All the changes affect all the IndustrialX controls in all the process pictures that have already been configured. If, for example, there are 47 motors of the same type in a plant that are visualized in 13 different process pictures using IndustrialX controls, you only need to make the changes once at a central location. These changes are then effective everywhere. This obviates the need to carry out time-consuming, errorprone changes at 47 different locations!
Rapid processing, know-how protected
IndustrialX controls are composed of compiled Visual Basic code that guarantees fast, effective processing. The technological know-how that you invested in creating your controls can - if necessary - be protected from copying if the source code is not supplied.
