Graphical Programming and Simulation for BACnet, Modbus, LonWorks, SNMP

It goes by a few different names: Graphical programming, visual programming, visual control, etc. When we say graphical programming, we mean you simply draw a picture of your control program, compile it with a couple of mouse clicks, and download it to the controller or freely programmable network I/O. Simulation and debugging is done graphically. New or updated devices even include a live debug mode that enables graphical debugging on live hardware.
