For the visualization and manipulation of process data and states, VBASE uses several field types with different properties. They can be linked to process variables and display their contents in different ways, depending on the field type.
For displaying and manipulating of variables in the form of a size modifying bar.
Terminates the project during runtime.
ASCII character string
Represents the values of one or more associated process variables as an ASCII string or allows them to be entered.
Starts programs of third parties at runtime or is used to link addresses.
For labeling elements within the process picture.
This system field type is used to position the entire application on the monitor.
Display and change the lowest bit of several process variables.
Enables and controls connections within the VBASE database interface.
To output information from the database.
For displaying or manipulating process variables as decimal values.
Form / Color switch
Depending on the process variable, even-colored surfaces are colored with a predefined color.
Displays process variables in the form of a rotating pointer.
Represents a range of variables as a graphical animation.
Represents a range of variables as a graphical line.
Many possibilities for the display and logging of measured values and data.
The media field is used to integrate media of various formats into the projects. The Media field also integrates live images from video cameras into the project.
Used to call the reporting statistics via the user interface.
To display texts depending on the content (value) of a variable.
To navigate to other process pictures within the project.
Combination of the field types menu and switch. Can take up to 8 different states.
Formatted protocols are created with the fields of the pro format, e.g. for printer output.
The protocol block is used for fast, block-wise recording of data. For instance, for recording measured values.
Displays the content of the report field and the reporting statistics in the form of a list, table or graphical statistics.
Recipes can be loaded, saved or deleted from the user interface using the recipe field type. The fields must be assigned to a recipe level.
The switch is used for status display or for changing states. Depending on the assigned process variables, up to 8 different texts or symbols are displayed.
Adds size and dimensions to the Line writer field.
For the presentation of moving elements. Depending on the process variables, variable symbols are displayed in size and position.
Enables the call of status information and functions integrated into VBASE (e.g. screen cleaning, user management, etc.)
Used to display and select large amounts of data using a table.
Sends keyboard shortcuts to third-party applications.
For activating a bit within an assigned variable in the push mode and for status display.
To display message logs, log files, etc. in the form of text files. Can be controlled by a coupled remotesystem.
Shows the ratio of several values to each other as a ring, cake or bar graph.
Allows you to view and enter data in the time format.
Represents a complete day (24h) as a time bar and can contain definitions for switching points and switching states.
VBASE is developed by VISAM GmbH in Neuwied, Germany.
