    F+P Datensysteme Gmbh
    f+p datensysteme gmbh
    f +p datensysteme delivers solutions for process control systems for the rubber and chemical industry.

    The main part of the control system is a process control iPC, which performs data exchange between PLCs and the supervisory database system. Other parts of the system are workstations for recipe handling, mixer program handling, analysis of the recordings, statistical analysis. f+p delivers ThinClient PCs for process visualization, operator panels, barcode printing and registration.

    The GLG Toolkit is used as the graphics subsystem for displaying graphics, trends, data tables and alarm lists. The ease of integration of the GLG tools combined with the flexibility of the f+p software bus layout provided maximum benefits for rapid application design.

    "We chose the GLG Toolkit because of the following advantages:
    • Excellent object oriented design and configuration
    • Excellent support from Generic Logic.
    • Good performance even on lower end CPUs
    • Flexible scalability and small footprint allows it to run on ThinClient with CompactFlash
    • Cross-platform availability and Web deployment
    • Easy integration with other modules and libraries for a variety of standard languages."

    Baltic Information Systems, Ltd.
    www.bis.lt

    BIS (Baltic Information Systems, Ltd.) is a software company specializing in development of safety and process monitoring systems for Nuclear Power plants.

    The BIS's new product, BISMARC, is a universal process control and monitoring SCADA system that may be configured to fulfill almost any plant monitoring task. It utilizes client/server architecture with TCP/IP-based communication and multi-level redundancy for high reliability, where the server software performs the PLC data acquisition, data processing and archiving, while the client software is responsible for data visualization and handling user interaction. In a distributed system, each node may serve as a server and client simultaneously. BISMARC is currently available on the Linux platform.

    The GLG Toolkit is used as the core engine for the graphics subsystem of the client application, the Plant Inspector. HMI drawings created in the GLG Graphics Builder are used as templates which are loaded into the Plant Inspector module at runtime. The Plant Inspector periodically updates trends and control points defined in the drawings with the real-time data values from PLCs. An operator can control plant devices by the means of buttons, toggles, switches, dials and other input objects in the drawings.

    "We prefer the GLG Toolkit because of its flexible and powerful development environment, cross-platform design, Unicode and True Type font support, concise API, nice graphics and many other features. An excellent support from the Generic Logic team was invaluably helpful during the development process."

    Global Factory
    Global Factory provides software solutions that simplify the management of distributed manufacturing operations and significantly reduce their complexity and cost. It offers a new breed of enterprise software that is intuitive, easily integrated into existing environments and adaptive to changing requirements.

    The GLG Toolkit underlies the graphic interface and provides the framework for a rich, integrated environment for business process design. Utilizing the Toolkit, Global Factory has developed a Flow Manager, a custom Java Applet that allows for interactive design of business processes. All main graphic components, such as application workspace, toolbars, buttons and shapes, were built completely in the Graphics Builder without any coding. The Toolkit's API provided all the necessary plumbing to bring these objects to life at runtime, and extend these objects via custom code. The result is an interactive, user-friendly experience.

    Partnering with Generic Logic

    Generic Logic offers special programs and OEM discounts for value-added resellers, consultants, as well as system and network integrators who want to partner with Generic Logic.

    Contact Generic Logic if you want to resell, embed, or bundle GLG products or technology with your own product to provide a value-added solution for your customers.

    Company Information

    Generic Logic was founded in 1994 to develop and market the GLG Toolkit - a set of editors, libraries, tools and components for creating and deploying dynamic graphical displays to visualize and control real-time processes in variety of industries.

    The GLG Toolkit was developed as part of the consulting activities from 1989 to 1994. It has grown from an in-house consulting tool into a top-of-the-line real-time graphics and data visualization product with various additional packages and deployment options, from the Java version of the Toolkit to the Map Server module with an integrated GIS functionality.

    The flexible component-based architecture of the Toolkit with open data interface allows applications to use it as a add-on graphical interface module, without locking them into a proprietary application framework, which is the case with many other packages. The unique features of the Toolkit, such as constraints, resource or tag-based data access and infinite customization capability, provide application developers with a powerful tool to handle the ever-increasing visualization needs of modern applications.

    Generic Logic is continuing to increase the power and flexibility of its premier product - the GLG Toolkit, dedicating big portion of the company resources to the development of new features and adapting the Toolkit to new markets. The GLG Toolkit family of products supports a wide variety of hardware platforms and software deployment options for Linux/Unix and Windows, including the Java version of the Toolkit, cross-platform support for OpenGL rendering and AJAX Graphics Server for deploying on mobile devices.

    Generic Logic is constantly working on extending its product offerings. The recent GIS Map Server product compliments GLG Toolkit by offering GIS mapping functionality, stand-alone or integrated into the Toolkit. A combination of the GIS mapping functionality with the Toolkit's dynamic capabilities provides new exciting opportunities for developing mission-critical applications.

    Generic Logic is headquartered in Amherst, Massachusetts. Click here for contact information.
