ADwin operation with the PC
Choose any popular programming language or development environment to design your grapical user interface.
Multiple PCs can communicate with one ADwin system concurrently. This may be useful during the program implementation and entry into service phases. Alternatively, a single PC can also access multiple ADwin systems (e.g. in a network for a centralised monitoring of various applications).
The first step to working with ADwin is to always transmit the real-time operating system to the ADwin system via the Ethernet or USB interface. Subsequently, you can load the ADbasic real-time processes and start or stop these as required. Single values or whole data sets, such as measured or set-point values, can be exchanged bidirectionally. The deterministic (exact and predictable in-time) execution of the real-time processes is not affected by the communcation between ADwin and the PC.
Real-time development with ADbasic and ADtools
With ADbasic, you define the processing sequences that are executed on the ADwin hardware. ADbasic optimises and compiles the program code at the click of a mouse. After being loaded on the ADwin system by ADbasic or a graphical PC user interface, the real-time processes execute independently. ADbasic contains the functions to access all inputs and outputs, as well as functions for floating-point operations, process control and communication with the PC. Our library of functions (e.g. for filtering, various counter use, closed-loop controllers, function generators, etc.) leads you to a fast program implementation.
By means of the easily configurable ADtools, you are able to display your real-time data graphically or numerically, to visualise process sequencings or to set input values via potentiometers, sliders or push buttons. Additionally, ADtools always provides you with the current status of your ADwin system resources.

Thank you – again! Even those of us who do not like being the damsel in distress sometimes have need of knights in shining armour.SA, Bradford, UK
It was about as perfect as a teaching seminar could be. Moved at the correct pace and encompasses a good amount of information
Thank you so much for all your help this morning. Endnote works just fine now and I’m enjoying working on this editorial. I am almost tempted to add your name as a co-author, but the journal won’t allow it! Thanks again.DR RD
