Increase system productivity and performance and reduce programming, configuration, commissioning, monitoring, and maintenance costs with Proficy Machine Edition.

Proficy Machine Edition automation software deploys HMI, motion, and multi-target control and provides a common user interface, drag-and-drop editing, and a rich set of development tools. By supporting Ethernet connectivity to global assets, Machine Edition allows users to view, troubleshoot, modify and validate applications regardless of location.

Boost Performance with the Latest Tools

Combining the best of traditional programming and graphics applications with powerful open industry-standard technologies such as COM/DCOM, ActiveX, OPC, and XML, Proficy Machine Edition eases migration to the latest development tools.

Improve Efficiency through Tight Integration

In addition to sharing common development tools, all Proficy Machine Edition components — View, Logic Developer, and Motion Developer — share a common database and common objects across applications, including logic, scripts, and animation. Once a variable is created, it can easily be used in all other components of the project.

Proficy Machine Edition allows the user to open multiple Machine Edition sessions on one PC and then connect each session to a controller simultaneously. This allows the user to view multiple, operating application programs at the same time from a single PC, increasing uptime through faster commissioning and debugging.

Connect and Control with Machine-Level Graphics

Proficy Machine Edition includes an intuitive, machine-level HMI for shop-floor devices, including PLCs, CNCs, motion controllers, and other machine-level components. An all-inclusive graphics tool lets users place objects within the common object repository, or “Toolchest.” Applications can be developed for QuickPanel* View and QuickPanel+. View supports communication protocols for all major PLCs and includes OPC client and server drivers and lets users publish data and graphical panels over the Web to a standard web browser.

Add Flexibility and Scalability in PLC and PC Control Environments

In both PLC and PC-based control environments, Logic Developer provides tools to develop, monitor, and troubleshoot your applications. In addition, Logic Developer provides full scalability from Quick Panel Control units to embedded controls as well as across the full spectrum of GE controllers.

Maximize Uptime with Redundancy Capabilities

PROFINET redundancy support simplifies configuration and diagnosis of distributed I/O networks.
