Projects Overview

The Edge One™ allows the programming of Projects, which are custom execution instances of the modules loaded into Edge One™. A single Edge One™ may execute one or more projects at a time. The following functions are available for projects:

  1. Create ( ) or Import ( ).
  2. Open ( ) and Configure ( ).
  3. Run ( ), stopped ( ), or restarted ( ).
  4. Export ( ), cloned ( ).
  5. Delete ( ) when the project is not running.
  6. Data ( ) which allows to display the project’s data and to write data into registers, variables or tags if the application module allows it. Data is only enabled when the project is running.

Other than the Create, Open and Import actions, all the actions to run, stop, clone, delete, etc. a Project are executed from the top panel of the individual project.
