  • The graphic plotter has been reworked and now has an archive function
  • Closed-loop controller settings can now be printed out with File > Print...
  • The tool requires a new authorization V5.x

Compatibility: Due to the fact that the interfaces of important function blocks have been changed, projects with function blocks based on V5.0 cannot be processed with Modular PID Control Tool V4.x. Similarly, projects with function blocks based on V4.x cannot be processed with Modular PID Control Tool V5.0.
