Easy to use
Actron has been using itís long experience of software
development for PLC programming. This is combined with the
requests and comments from our international distributors.
Therefore in contrast to other IEC 61113-3 programming
systems from typical software houses ActWin is created
together with and for PLC users. This means that the amount
of programming operations (e.g. the amount of mouse clicks
and menu levels) for the user is far less then in other
systems. This also means that it is fast and intuitive to
Based on IEC 61131-3
The IEC61131-3 is the International standard, which will
dominate the PLC programming. By using a standard way of
programming the user will save lots of time of learning,
documentation etc. Wider range of people will be able to use
the application. The application development process will be
shorter and much money will be saved.
With ActWin can you program your project in SFC or in
Ladder. SFC programming will always be a combination of the
flowchart structure and actions and transitions in Ladder.
In both programming methods the "Grid Mode" can be used. The
Grid Mode is a by Actron patented method to make graphical
With the Grid Mode you will for each position that you point
at receive the correct and most used function. If you need
any other function on this position you can right click and
get all syntax correct functions.
User defined function and function Blocks
ActWin has got a unique straight forward way for the users
to build their own function blocks or macros, which can be
saved, reused in the project or used in other projects.
System Function and Function Blocks
There are many different pre-defined building blocks
available. Some of them are standard IEC 61131-3 building
blocks and some are PLC specific.
ActWin requires a computer running Windows NT 3.51, Windows
2000, Windows XP or later. ActWin can run in standard VGA
mode (640 * 480) but a higher resolution is recommended.
ActWin is delivered on a CD and includes installation, cable
and an on-line manual.
