Integrate Sequential Function Charts

in Your LabVIEWTM diagrams


With LabVIEW add-on Grafcet Designeryou now can edit Sequential Function Charts in your LabVIEW Diagrams and execute them for the control of your control/command systems.

Formally known as GrafcetVIEW, Grafcet Designer is compatible with all LabVIEW versions since LabVIEW 6i ...
Current version is version 2.0 avalaible for LabVIEW 2010 and later.


A state machine design has just one state active at a time, this is well adapted to manage interactions with a user who can do just one thing at a time.

For machine management, which can achieve several things at the same time independantly and in an asycnhronous way, designing their control with states machine can quickly become complex (See here the Car Wash example). In those cases, using a Sequential function Chart (or Grafcet) to design your machine control can be very much well adapted.

Grafcet Designer is WYDIWYG : What You Design Is What You Get. You execute direclty your SFC under labVIEW. It also let you visualize the active steps of your model, this makes your development much more clear and easy to debug.
