Applications needing a simple client communications library can use
SimpleClient. This provides an easy to use library for interfacing to
one or a few field devices or other servers.
More advanced custom systems can be created by combining
SimpleClient, MBLogicEngine, and MBLogic.
- SimpleClient provides communications between the custom application
- MBLogicEngine provides soft logic (PLC emulation) functions. This allows
end users to program auxliliary machine functions using familiar PLC concepts
without having to change the main PC application.
- MBLogic provides communications with field devices and integration with
other production equipment using standard industrial protocols, and enterprise
connectivity through its built in web service protocol.
- MBLogic's ability to act as both multiple servers and as multiple
simultaneously allows it to handle more advance communications shores and
talk to more field devices than SimpleClient could on its own.
