Factory Automation software
Powerful scripting engine gives completely flexibility in automating your factory processes.
Structured text scripting means anyone can do it. A familiar syntax means most any programmer can provide assistance even if they are not familiar with DAQFactory.
Completely multithreaded: create a separate loop for each process or part of a process. Logically organize your control loops instead of having to mash them together into one big loop.
Make changes on the fly: no need to stop and recompile every time you want to add a new screen element or make a tweak to script.
But DAQFactory can perform more than just automation. It is a complete HMI / SCADA package, and so you can use a single application to run your process, provide an interface for your operators, and provide supervisory control and data logging for quality control.
Just one example of DAQFactory being used in factory automation is an airplane parts manufacturer in Washington state. They have a carbon fiber press for creating parts. DAQFactory moves the raw material into a heater for a preset time, then moves it under the press, triggers the press and removes the material when done. This could have certainly been done with a PLC, but DAQFactory's script was much easier to develop. Plus, the system was easily setup to do batch control, allowing different press and heater settings with different dies and material thicknesses, all controlled from an operator panel and UPC scanner.
