Tags versus Communication Points
For smaller projects, FactoryStudio allows licensing by communication points, instead of tags. In our system, a tag can be a calculated value, data from a SQL database, a temporary input from a display, or any variable that is not directly connected to a PLC register or a field device. By making the licensing a function of only the communication points, allowing unlimited tags, Tatsoft’s model is much more fair and easier to consume.
FactoryStudio was created with 100% .NET code, meaning it leverages the 64-bit architecture, multi-core CPUs, parallel code execution, vector graphics, high speed communication, and all the benefits of the most current and up-to-date hardware platforms. For your servers with unlimited clients, you can expand your hardware as needed and FactoryStudio will insure it is put to optimum use.
