Graphical Application Programmer (GAP)

    Software for Electronic Controls Used on Industrial Turbines and Engines


    New for 2018
    On-line Changes in your GAP programs!

    Woodward’s GAP™ is a Windows-based software program that allows controls engineers to create block format application programs for a number of Woodward control systems. Once the control logic is entered using a graphical programming environment, the GAP software compiler function generates code that runs in the control.

    GAP 4 now includes on-line program changes to allow easy navigation through the OLC process and to help insure seamless and bumpless control transfer. Woodward’s GAP OLC tools offer: 

    • Intuitive Design  - Easy and intuitive to use built directly into GAP
    • Pre-Set Outputs  - Set the initial output for blocks to insure the program states are as intended before a control switch-over is initiated
    • Pre-Testing Changes - Monitor the updated program on the non-controlling CPU before a switch-over command is given. Use Woodward NetSim to simulate all your changes in advance.

    GAP software is Woodward's pictures-to-code programming tool. This programming system uses libraries of control objects connected in a graphical format. The final control design is displayed as a group of interconnected blocks that represent the actual functionality of the code running in the control hardware.
