Connect I/O is a free SoftPLC which is able to communicate with different types of technologies.

It enables the creation and control of data flows between input and output points. The application can be connected to both software and hardware and will work as a bridge between them.

Engine I/O allows the exchange of data with external applications. This is how Connect I/O interfaces with other Real Games software.


Use most of the IEC 61131-3 Standard function blocks with the SoftPLC included in Connect I/O.The Real Games approach to simulations is to develop an open environment which can be accessed and expanded by anyone.

The Engine I/O is a .NET Framework 2.0 assembly, which enables inter-process communication (IPC) between simulations and external technologies which can be software (MATLAB, LabVIEW…) or hardware (Arduino, PICAXE, etc.).
