Courtesy: TurckTurck's Argee is designed to help manufacturers add logic to compatible I/O devices without a programmable logic controller (PLC). The Argee environment is accessible via an HTML5-compatible web browser, which eliminates the need for complex third-party software or licensing that is common with PLCs. Users can set condition and action statements to be carried out by the I/O device. The application's intuitive design includes a flow chart-similar to ladder logic-which allows for easy programing by users of all experience levels. With Argee, manufacturers are able to turn the I/O device into a field logic controller (FLC).

Argee features include toggling bits, the utilization of timers and counters, performing arithmetic functions, monitoring of program status via the built-in human-machine interface (HMI) capabilities and communicating with an upper-level PLC. It also has HTML5-based programing, which makes the environment accessible on any device via capable web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It also has integration with digital, analog, IO-Link, RFID, and specialty I/O types.
