Diagram Editor (PDE108)

A Process Diagram (aka P&ID) presents a symbolic map of a control system or process. This could be a power grid, an irrigation system, temperature monitoring and control in a building, a security system, and so on.  Having a "map" of the control environment - with relays and/or temperatures displayed in the map - can make for a more intuitive understanding of the overall system. 

The new line of 108Relays control and monitoring software uses such a diagram as the main visual interface. These diagrams will display information just as the original interfaces did, but you can create a layout to suit your environment. Some layouts will be interactive (eg: if running a K108 control program, you’ll be able to click on a Relay or Switch object in the diagram, to operate the relay. This Diagram Editor software is the tool you use to design these diagrams. 

Editor features:
  - Standard drawing shapes, such as rectangle, ellipse, diamond, 
      polygon, etc.  Use these to represent equipment and processes. 
  - Ability to convert an existing shape (rectangle, ellipse, diamond 
      only) to another
  - Various kinds of line objects (straight, right-angle, z-line, 
      bezier curve)
  - Multi-line text object, suitable for labelling or longer descriptions 
  - Pre-defined control objects for K108, K145, K190, and VK011 
      boards (eg: relays, inputs, temperature, alarms, labels) 
  - Shadow option for all drawing objects 
  - Embed bitmap images in a diagram
  - A popup Properties editor, for setting and editing property values  
      for each drawing object
  - Customize color for all shapes, lines, and shadows 
  - Status display, showing object count, size of diagram area, 
      and mouse position in a diagram
  - Save drawing to file
  - Capture drawing to Clipboard, for pasting into a graphics program 
  - Simple “Test” function to verify viewability and operation of 
      control objects   
  - A series of demo/tutorial diagrams is included
