LogixView - HMI Development Kit based on Visual Studio

The LogixView is the latest software package for developing the graphic user interface for monitoring and controlling Advantech eAutomation products on WindowsCE based devices.

This package is based on Microsoft .NET technology, and used in Visual Studio 2005 environment.
The previous solution for Advantech .NET solution is the Adam.NET class library, and it supplies several class libraries for accessing ADAM series product. For those who want to use the Adam.NET class library still have to write more code to make their programs run.
The LogixView is based on the Adam.NET technology, and offers more components for data acquisition.

Users can simply drag and drop the components into Visual Studio .NET project and change the properties of the components to make their programs run as demands. In other word, users who use the LogixView no longer need to write code line by line for the data acquisition, but concentrate on program logic and event handling.

• Easy connection with ADAM I/O series
• Simply Drag and Drop the Components
• Less Coding and Reduce Loading
• Easy to Developing GUI
• Provide Several Components for Communication
• Supports DAQ components and classes
• Multiple graphic controls
• Support Modbus/RTU, Modbus/TCP, ADAM Protocol, and ADAM-5000 Local IO Modules
• Supports WinCE-based devices, including UNO, TPC and ADAM series products

DLL Drivers:    32-bit DLL Driver for Microsoft Windows 95/NT

These DLL drivers are included with every Advantech plug-in card,
and with the ADAM-4000 and ADAM-5000 series modules, and MIC-2000.

Your data acquisition applications can now take full advantage of the benefits of Windows 95/NT.
The latest DLL drivers include 32-bit Windows 95/NT drivers and extensive on-line documentation.
You can use the 32-bit DLL drivers for Windows 95/NT with 32-bit development environments such as
Visual C++, Visual Basic, Borland C++ and Borland Delphi.
The segment and offset programming complexities present in 16-bit systems are eliminated by the new 32-bit DLLs and languages, and each application uses a separate address space and preemptive multitasking.
Finally, your applications will execute faster because overheads are lower when calling a 32-bit DLL from a 32-bit application compared to calling a 16-bit DLL.

LabVIEW Drivers  

LabVIEW® is the leading graphical programming environment for data acquisition and instrument control applications. The drivers have both a high speed and a normal speed data acquisition capability

Versatile and simple examples to speed up your programming
Perform Advantech data acquisition cards under NI LabVIEW seamlessly

Advantech 32-bit LabVIEW drivers enable you to use Advantech plug-in I/O cards with LabVIEW software. The LabVIEW driver forms an interface between Advantech DA&C device DLL drivers, which contain all the relevant functions to control Advantech plug-in I/O cards and the LabVIEW software. LabVIEW driver forms a VI (virtual instrument) in the LabVIEW package, which enables other applications to be used in conjunction with Advantech plug-in I/O cards.
