Subject : About "ISaGRAF" name
The name for the ISaGRAF product was thought of in the early 1990s, when the
IEC 1131-3 standard did not exist. The only existing standard
for automation at this date was the IEC-848 std. defining the GRAFCET
programming language (called SFC in IEC 1131-3).
So "GRAF" is for GRAFCET, which was the highest level language.
"ISa" means "is a" which is a common relationship from object
Thus "ISaGRAF" means: "IS a GRAFCET". This explains why the
middle "a" letter is always written in lowercase.
