EX-gfx Graphical Programming Interface
Distech Controls EC-gfxProgram is a graphical programming interface that allows you to visually assemble building blocks together as necessary to create a custom control sequence for any HVAC/building automation application.
By “dragging and dropping” a few block objects from the EC-gfxProgram’s vast library and connecting them with a simple “click, select, and release” process, you can quickly and easily assemble common control sequences and customised applications specific to your needs.
Designed to program Distech Controls’ ECB Series BACnet®, ECL Series LONWORKS®, and ECLYPSETM ECY Series controllers.
Graphical Programming Interface for Programmable Controllers
BAS Graphical Programming Interface
- Block-oriented programming reduces user’s learning curve and results in fewer errors making it a faster and more intuitive programming method.
- Customisable blocks enable the creation of unique functions and programs.
- Reduces language barriers in international environments.
Access Methods for ECB, ECL, and ECY Series Controllers
Launch EC-gfxProgram in different ways to connect to your ECB, ECL, and ECY Series controllers using:
- The EC-NetAX Wizard for ECB, ECL, and ECY Series controllers
- The LNS Plug-in such as Lonwatcher 3 for ECL controllers
- Standalone access (PC’s desktop) for a direct connection to ECY Series controllers
For use with EC-NetAX, or standalone (LNS, BACnet, ECLYPSE BACnet/IP)
Provides an intuitive and customizable block-oriented programming environment
Complete with gfxApplications, an extensive library of pre-engineered, energy-efficient HVAC applications
Supplied toolbox includes more than 100 pre-defined functions including HVAC, Comparators, Logic, Math, Time, Input/Output, among others, to simplify programming and reduce programming time
Create your own standard code libraries and toolboxes from previously used code or code sections to save programming time
Features a step-by-step Configuration Assistant to facilitate custom programming, simplifying onsite installation and commissioning
Supports large deployments with multiple device code downloading
Easily troubleshoot your application in real-time through live-debugging and a Watch List to monitor specific process variables and detect errors as they occur
Codes and projects created for ECL LONWORKS, ECB BACnet or ECLYPSE Series controllers can be “ported” or “converted” to be re-used on all your projects, regardless of protocol or product series.
