In today’s competitive marketplace, the need to do more with less is more pertinent than ever before, as complex programs need to interface with many different aspects of the entire production system. Engineering resources have become increasingly constrained, and integrating different programming languages requires a significant investment in development, debugging and maintenance.
• Faster time to solution through increased efficiency
• Improved productivity to configure, develop, commission, and maintain applications
• Decreased development and maintenance costs
• Seamless migration path to the latest technologies
• Reduced training time with one software package for all controllers, operator interface, and motion
With GE Intelligent Platforms’ Proficy Machine Edition automation software, you can simplify your efforts and reduce costs by leveraging an integrated development environment that deploys all your HMI, motion and multi-target control applications. All components and applications within Proficy Machine Edition share a single workspace and tool set, including a standardized user interface and an efficient, user-friendly design.
Machine Edition combines the best of traditional programming and graphics applications with powerful open industry standard technologies such as COM/ DCOM, ActiveX, OPC and XML—providing a smooth migration path to the latest development tools.
iFIX 5.0 comes with a completely new look and feel for the Workspace and Database Manager, based on a Microsoft-fluent User Interface (UI) technology. The new UI follows the Ribbon Bar concept, which allows you to easily access your tools during application development and configure Quick Access Toolbars for frequently used tools. The new UI also organizes all the configuration tools in the form of alleries that allow you to view all available options “on the go” and reduces the time to access these tools.
iFIX 5.0 is packed with innovative new features and advanced capabilities such as enhanced failover that supports database and alarm synchronization, bundled and integrated Historian, a new charting tool that supports SPC and logarithmic charts, advanced alarm escalation, filtering and display, and a Microsoft-fluent UI with more than 500 new dynamos and thumbnail support.
