OpenAPC is an APC (Advanced Process Control) solution that is highly flexible and configurable and covers a wide range of automation, visualization, and process control tasks from home control up to industrial automation and manufacturing. The software package is available for many different platforms, so OpenAPC projects can be switched over to a different platform easily. OpenAPC software package consists of ControlRoom (a visualisation and process controlling software consisting of editor, debugger and player), CNConstruct (a CAD application for generation and editing of CNC data), BeamConstruct (a fully featured laser marking software supporting all important scanner controller cards) and several additional runtime tools.
