VBASE is the central hub for all of your automation projects. The application possibilities of VBASE are almost infinite. Everywhere where processes are visualized, data is collected and control commands must be exchanged with remotes, VBASE is at home. In the industrial automation, as well as in the professional building systems engineering. From automotive, to construction materials, to pharmaceuticals and chemicals - VBASE is not limited to a single sector.
VBASE is suitable, among other things. For / as:
VBASE (and its predecessor versions) has been on the market for more than 30 years! The first version was developed in 1986, for the DOS operating system. Since then, the software has been continually developed in terms of functionality and technology. We attach great importance to compatibility with old VBASE projects. VBASE has been project-compliant for more than 15 years!Here you will find the detailed history of the software.
Licensing is basically done over the runtime, the part of the software, which contains the finished project and is executed on the target computer. The VBASE Editor is free of charge!
There are 5 different VBASE-RT runtime systems, which differ in function, licensing and price. The software license is already included in the device price for a VISAM HMI unit (VTP) or automation server (VGATE).Here you can find more information about VBASE runtime systems.
Basically there are the following possibilities for an automation project with VBASE:
VBASE is compatible with more than 200 different remotes. This includes, of course, the popular PLC systems from Siemens, Wago, Beckhoff, Mitsubishi, etc., but also bus systems such as Modbus, KNX or digital power. It is also possible to integrate systems via OPC.
So it is very likely that we support your system. The complete list can be found in our driver list. If your system is not listed, please contact us. We also offer affordable driver development!
Support at VISAM is free of charge!
It does not matter if you are already a customer or are still testing our software. Our competent support team is at your disposal by telephone, email or in our support forum.
Yes, the user interface of the VBASE Editor is available in German, English, French and Polish.
In addition, the user can store multilingual texts (up to 256 languages) in the VBASE projects, which are displayed in the runtime environment and can also be switched during runtime.
The VBASE runtime systems are independent programs. In order to ensure that VBASE is started automatically after the system start, the corresponding runtime system (VOK) must be entered as a link to the "Autostart" folder by the operating system, followed by the respective project name.
In order to simplify this process, it is possible to automatically create an Autostart link on the local system. Find this funtion under "Project Test" within the VBASE editor (see Online Help).
There are two easy ways to protect VBASE projects against manipulation.
In addition, the script programs can be encrypted to protect the "know-how".
VBASE was developed for Microsoft's Windows platform. The "VBASE Editor" configuration tool runs on all desktop operating systems as of Windows XP.
The runtime systems can also be used on the Embedded operating systems Windows Embedded Compact and Windows CE.
