WinNBI and WinPLUS
WinNBI (Windows™ Network Based Interface) is Osai's new interface created with the network. It is possible to have a "user friendly" and graphic oriented operator interface that can be customised using a mouse to "Point & Click" and "Drag & Drop". The big advantage is that there is no need for any Windows™ programming knowledge. It is possible to create customised system process screens just by inserting elementary objects such as: axes position, Feed, Speed, G, M, T, functions with the possibility of modifying fonts and colours.
In this way you can create different screens, and each of them can be matched with one or more processes according to the specific requirements of the application. Further more, based on COM/DCOM technology oriented to distributed architecture, WinNBI can interface with different CNCs and be distributed in different points of the factory network.
WinPLUS can be used to develop the machine logic, a development package running in Windows™, in accordance with the IEC 61131-3 standard. It offers a graphic editor using different colours according to the syntax of the programming languages that can be used (ST, LD, FB, SFC), a wide range of instruments for debugging the application such as "Tracing", the management of the "break points", with the possibility of stopping the execution of each single task without stopping the execution of the others, "watch" windows to visualise and force the value of the variables and it is possible to visualise the transitions of the LD, FB, SFC.
