Saia PG5® Core

The Saia PG5® Core contains the following components:

  • Project Manager (administers complex installations of networked PCD controllers, including documentation)
  • Network Configurator (integrated network editors for theconfiguration of devices and communications networks)
  • Device Configurator (configuration of hardware parameters on the controller)
  • Symbol Editor (administers all local, global and network symbols and symbol groups.
    Auto-allocation largely dispenses with the need for fixed addressing)
  • Programming methods (integrated programming environments: FUPLA [function block diagram], S-Edit [instruction list IL] and Graftec [sequential function chart] )
  • Libs (standard libraries which quickly and easily enable all the core functions of the ICA/automation technology)
  • WebEditor (for WebSCADA functions in every controller)
  • PG5-Projectmanager

    The configurations and applications are created, changed and managed in the Saia® PG5 Project Manager. The Saia® PG5 Project
    Manager is the central linchpin for all work with Saia® PCD controllers.

  • Saia PG5® FUPLA (function block diagram)

    FUPLA is Saia®’s own function block diagram editor. It differs in many respects from other graphical programming interfaces:


    • One FUPLA file can contain several program blocks. This means that one file can encompass an entire machine function. In symbolic programming, each program block is given an individual symbol name. This prevents collisions during the build.
    • FUPLA blocks are organized into pages. Each page can produce several outputs so that entire functions can be seen at a glance on one page.
    • Graphical functions (FBoxes) not only have inputs and outputs, but also parameter windows for configuring and online modification.
