Development for 4 Series Controllers
Software tools for our latest controllers
Software development for our hardware centers around various Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) paired with our open source software tool openSYDE. Our controller modules support a number of development languages and environments - with our latest series of controller primarily being developed for using openSYDE + logi.CAD with C or IEC Languages.
What is openSYDE?
openSYDE by STW is the integrated development tool for time and cost-saving design, development, diagnostics, and commissioning of control systems for mobile machinery.
Benefits of openSYDE
Complete System Management
Manage your machine and network throughout its entire lifecycle in a simple development environment
Shared Device Data
Share data pools by creating global variables and lists that can be used to automatically update all devices.
3rd Party Compatibility
Easily work with third party products in your system layouts
Regularly published source code licensed under GPL v3 - allowing you to add your own unique features if needed
Machine Lifecycle Support
openSYDE is designed to be the development environment of choice for supporting mobile machines throughout their entire lifecycle.
System Design, Device Communication, I/O Configuration
Code Development, Application Logic and Development
Testing & Diagnostics
Live Memory Monitoring, Visualization of Gauge Information
Deployment & Servicing
Flash Controllers, Update Peripheral Device Software
Supports every phase of the mobile machine development and servicing lifecycle.
Features of openSYDE
Connect and map communication networks using your own device graphics and simple drag-and-drop.
Reduce your engineering effort - openSYDE automatically generates safety documentation that keeps you in compliance.
Device Template Management
Create template profiles for a device once, then easily add that same device type to your network any number of times.
Open File Format Workflow
Easily import and export industry standard file formats such as DBC, EDS, DCF, ASC, and BLF.
Application Development for 4 Series
openSYDE + logi.CAD (C)
These capabilities are available in openSYDE when developing with logi.CAD using C language for 4 Series controllers.
