InScript

The InScript software provides a simple object driven task assembly structure combined with detailed control parameter inputs when required. It is a powerful tool for creating process sequences and for system management.

 Caution

When updating InScript releases less than 2.08.10, the driver for the NCC 1703 system controller and it's predecessors will not be properly uninstalled (ACME3282).

The new driver will not be properly installed then.

  • Update only InScript 2.08.10 or higher or contact ARGES for support. Tip: See InScript's window title for the installed InScript version.
