The PRODAVE DDE server permits MS-Windows applications to be integrated in automation tasks. The DDE access mechanism of Windows permits on-line reading or writing of process variables. The user can integrate standard applications (e.g. MS-Excel) into automation tasks and in this way drastically cut the cost of software generation. A large number of software packages based on MS-Windows are available for PCs. The range includes tools for word processing, statistics, spreadsheets, process visualization and production automation. Most standard programs use a macro language to exchange data with other programs via the DDE mechanism. This permits customized MS- Windows applications that were implemented in any programming language to be included in automation tasks. _Hardware prerequisites for PCs and PGs:_ Microprocessor: At least 80386 Main memory: 4 Mbytes (8 Mbytes recommended) Hard disk: At least 1.5 Mbytes free _Software prerequisites:_ MS-Windows 3.1 or MS-Windows for Workgroups 3.11 operating system (extended mode). _Connection to SIMATIC S5 U-range PLCs:_ To all PLCs via the programmer interface (AS 511).
