The on-line programming function offering by Balmoral Technologies for touch screen monitors allows the user to make changes while the application is running.
On-line programming with PLCs has been a necessity in the programming, startup and maintenance of PLC applications for over a decade.
Writing a program completely, downloading it and redoing this process as modifications are discovered are outdated processes.
Similarly, touch panel programming demands that users can make changes on-line since it is much easier to troubleshoot system logic by adding objects while the application is still running.
For instance, different colours or animations can only be fine-tuned while the application is running.
All touch screens from Balmoral Technologies offer complete on-line programming as they have from the earliest models.
The On-Line Edit function allows changes in screen design without shutting down the machine. One can also add new objects or simply create a new screen just for troubleshooting logic.
