AET-Technologies chose COPA-DATA and the straton product for a fast programming of automation applications under the IEC61131-3 standard.
The use of the straton Integrated Development Environment allowed the AET-Technnologies engineering team to quickly produce applications on WAGO’s Ethernet controllers.
Pierre Bonnard was in charge of the project at AET-Technologies. He said:
” Working with straton was very easy; programming is intuitive and the communication with peripherals is really simple to implement.
straton allowed us to create our own control algorithms without the need for numerous devices.
The creation of functions blocks allowed us to integrate our knowhow, allowing us to easily reuse fragments of programs and to save valuable hours of programming.
We use many diverse products in our applications, all of which support straton (PC, AIM, WAGO, ICP DAS). Using stratonÂ® allows us to maintain long-term support throughout the evolution of our machines. ”
The flexibility of development of the straton tools allows programmers to preserve and reuse their application knowledge (user functional blocks imported in libraries) and provides numerous features as:
- IEC61131-3 standard programming, including conversion between the 5 languages
- Simulation, including on line debugging
- Configuration of fieldbus elements
- Distributed application support using an Ethernet based protocol
- On-line application modification for rapid turnaround
- Graphical configuration tools for a wide range of products including WAGO
