Imagine being able to read program logic visually, as if you were reading a SAMA logic drawing.  Imagine the impact on troubleshooting, the ease of reviewing changes, and the simplicity of keeping only one central documentation source. The IDS SAMA Template Library allows Control Builder to display SAMA-style symbols, templates, and drawings for creating live program documentation right inside Control Builder.

Online documentation reduces documentation effort. No need to maintain both AutoCAD and Control Builder drawings, just a single documentation source in Control Builder. Drawings can then be printed directly from Control Builder when required for document archiving.

SAMA Configuration Tool


The SAMA template library can be somewhat cumbersome and time-consuming to install manually. This tool helps you install the SAMA templates quickly. It prepares the Control Builder system for SAMA templates by loading the necessary bitmaps for the backgrounds of the SAMA templates, and the header and footer information necessary for printing control modules in a SAMA format.
