Communication Drivers

VisiWin is an open system not tying you to any specific panel. The same applies to communication with automation hardware such as control and drive systems.

In VisiWin, communication is uncoupled from the runtime system by means of a standardized OPC interface (Classic and/or UA) or proprietary drivers.

Of course, the drivers developed by INOSOFT are particularly well suited for the VisiWin runtime system and ensure optimal performance, stability and diagnostics.

You can combine VisiWin with various controllers and common automation devices. Even at the same time ... This makes you independent of single manufacturers, so that supply shortages, e.g. for HMI panels, can also be overcome.

Contact us. VisiWin provides many more drivers, also for prior automation systems. And the list is growing steadily...

Even linking to a proprietary system is possible. To develop an individual driver a driver toolkit is available that allows you to sinply develop your own driver in C# based on Microsoft.NET. Of course we can do that for you, too.

In search of the right tool?

We don’t have screwdrivers. But we do have a powerful HMI/SCADA tool that combines total openness with numerous system functions.

You need more information and have specific questions? Attend our online presentation and discuss your individual task with our tech-savvy VisiWin experts.

It’s easy, uncomplicated and without any obligation!
