User Interface: Our ribbon interface features logical tool/object grouping, and the ability to open multiple documents simultaneously. The interface is so easy and intuitive it’s called the Rapid Application Configuration Environment (RACE).
Security System: Native support for distributed security systems, and full integration with Microsoft Active Directory via LDAP allows you to take advantage of built-in security. IWS also supports users assigned to multiple groups.

Graphic Enhancements: New 3D style buttons, embedded icons on buttons and convenient “Command” access give IWS a strong graphic interface. A new feature supports dynamic rotation for external imported pictures.

Drivers: IWS 7.0 contains over 240 built-in drivers for most PLCs, temperature controllers, motion controllers, and bar code/2D/RFID readers. New or updated drivers for Eaton ELC, Siemens, Opto 22, CAN, CANopen, and BACnet have also been developed.
OPC: Continuing its tradition of OPC classic support, IWS v7.0 supports OPC UA (Client) and OPC Xi (Client).

Multi-Language: New one-click online translation, including support for Unicode fonts for global compatibility.

Configuration tools: New easy to use configuration interfaces for FTP and SMTP email. Send alerts straight to e-mail or a smartphone!

Embedded License: Now there is a reduced footprint full feature version specifically for Windows Embedded operating system deployments.

Intellectual Property Protection: Documents, scripts and even math worksheets can be individually password protected. This prevents unauthorized viewing or editing of your corporate custom functionality.
