About ISaGRAF 6
ISaGRAF 6 leverages the powerful Microsoft® Visual Studio® Shell and offers an unprecedented environment for OEMs and automation vendors to create differentiated products for their markets. Based on an open plug-in technology designed specifically for industrial automation needs, the ISaGRAF 6 Workbench is a modular and flexible environment that allows users to add or remove components. Every component in the Workbench was developed with and interacts through ISaGRAF's new Microsoft .NET® Framework-based technology called the Automation Collaborative Platform (ACP). The ISaGRAF ACP provides the ability to add or remove the various plug-ins to meet specific automation product requirements. ISaGRAF 6.0 now has several plug-ins including a Ladder Diagram editor, a Function Block Diagram editor, a Structured Text editor, a Tag Database editor (Dictionary), an integrated HMI plus several other auxiliary plug-ins.
ISaGRAF will continue to release a new plug-in every other week over the next several months to complement the ISaGRAF 6 offering. The staged release of the different industrial automation components illustrates the modularity and flexibility of this new environment.
