TAC Menta: a graphical programming tool for heating, ventilation and air conditioning control applications

TAC Menta is a graphical programming tool for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) control applications which includes advanced off-line simulation of the HVAC process. TAC Menta makes application programming easy.
%TAC Menta is one of the most tailored graphical programming tools for HVAC control applications on the market. TAC Menta is used by technicians from TAC and its representatives for programming and commissioning the TAC. family of products. TAC Xenta is a product line of freely programmable controllers which communicate using the LonWorks technology. The software was developed for the TAC Xenta family and cannot be used for other control devices without being adapted. However, the software generates a byte-code that is interpreted by the embedded system (the controller) and is transportable to different microprocessor platforms. The primary advantage of graphical programming tools is that it is easy to learn how to use them. If the technician has some knowledge of applications, he or she can learn how to work the programming easily. There is also a library of numerous ready-made applications which have been well tested by experienced technicians. All application programs may be simulated in off-line mode in an advanced process simulator that also contains a plotting function. When TAC Menta is on-line, all values may be read and plotted in real time. There is also a program available for tailoring the menu of the operator panel for TAC Xenta 301/302/401, and a network configuration tool intended for the TAC Xenta family, which is eases the LonWorks network installation considerably.
