The new version 1.5 of the process control OpenAPC was equipped with an improved interface and processes can now also control without the GUI.
OpenAPC is a cross-platform and free software available, which for and for the visualization of processes in industry and manufacturing process control is provided primarily, and therefore already in the machine is used. The open architecture of automation software and well-documented software interface also offer many possibilities in the private and semi-professional. The software package will contain an MMI Editor, in which complex user interfaces can be created easily and intuitively with the mouse. All standard GUI elements like buttons, check boxes, sliders, input fields and other support, enhancements are easily retrofitted to plug-ins.
The created GUI elements can then be in a logic editor using a kind of block diagram functionally linked to each other. Again, the functionality through proprietary and included plugins are enhanced. Some of the existing plugins allow it to communicate with other programs or devices. Thus, it is also possible without programming, their own small applications to create. Also, there are different ways of its own programs or scripts to dock with the system to control such complex processes.
