Simple, but Flexible!

The NA Series gives the user the ability to design using IAGs (Intelligent Application Gadgets). IAGs simplify and accelerate the development process through structuring the project and enhancing reuse. From simple graphics to complex objects, you can make your own collections and share them between projects, like a Function Block.

Step 1: Machine Parts, the Visual

Using standard controls, or graphics from the machine parts collection, design your own IAG.
Add interface properties and methods to bring the object to life when reused.

NA Series Features 22

Step 2: Extensible with Visual Basic

NA Series Features 23

As well as many graphic IAGs, it is also possible to embed code within an IAG. The code can extend the possibilities of the gadget such as providing special device communication. Thanks to Visual Basic the standard functionality of the NA can be extended as required.

Step 3: Publish and Share

NA Series Features 24

When the IAG is built and tested (using simulation) it can be published and the collection file distributed to be used again and again. Omron will release further IAG collections to extend the functionality of the NA Series.
