VBASE-RT runtime systems
The VBASE runtime systems are the most important program parts within the automation system. They run as stand-alone applications and provide the graphical user interface, accept user inputs, manage the process variables and the communication channels. There are a total of 4 variants of the VBASE runtime: Compact, Light, Pro and Server. These differ in function range, licensing and price.
VBASE Data field (VDF)
Within VBASE, all process data are exchanged via process variables of the VBASE data field. The VDF forms the bridge between all VBASE functions and the connected remotestations. Through this data structure, all process data are simultaneously available in the system. The VDF manages up to 65,536 process variables.
