These versions have the particularity to bind the development workshop and the runtime of the application. They don't permit to make operate several applications simultaneously therefore. Their main advantage is their cost reduces, and the fact that you can let on the installation, if you are service for example, the complete tool permitting to maintain and to modify the application.
With these versions, you can acquire licenses of development and the licenses of runtime separately. The license of development permits to conceive and to construct a complete application, and to make operate this one (a license runtime is included in the license development). The license of runtime permits to make operate the application solely, with all tools of visualization and maintenance).
Versions limited in number of inputs / outputs
These versions include a number of digital inputs / outputs limited to 64, and 8 analogical channels. These numbers of variables permit to create applications of small or middle size without any problem.
