Today, the importance of developing reliable mechatronical systems in a cost- and time-efficient way is increasing. EasyKit, which is presented in this paper in a short form, is a system which was developed to assist in this process. It reduces the time and money efforts of the development of mechatronical systems. EasyKit is delivered with a graphical software development environment, which is called EasyLab. This software can be used to program microcontrollers in a simple way. When EasyKit was developed, only basic generic libraries for graphical software development were included, which made the development of complex programs inefficient. To solve this problem, a basic library for automation purposes was developed and is presented in this paper. The components and their easy usage are shown. The EasyKit system and its development environment were used for a variety of test applications. One of them, an air control test application, which will be used for calibrating sensors of air passages, is presented in this paper.
