    For creating visualization and operator interfaces that are perfectly matched to the task in hand without elaborate programming
  • ActiveX control elements for use in all Windows applications supporting OLE (such as Microsoft Office applications, Visual Basic, Visual CC++):
    Process data can for example be read into an Excel spreadsheet and assessed from a statistical point of view.
  • Numerous graphics elements for designing operator interfaces:
    e.g., switches, sliders, LED arrays, digital output fields, DIP switches and similar.
  • Numerous preconfigured bitmaps for LEDs, switches, and buttons
  • Control elements for direct access to the CPU:
    CPU data can be displayed and modified; additional program code and STEP 7 Micro/WIN32 are not required.
