Customizing the editor
Software is an important part of automation applications, especially because it is used for the design and development of the application. Hardware manufacturers have to offer open, ergonomic and IEC 61131 compliant editors.
The straton Development Environment is a ready to use tool which supports the IEC 61131-3 standard and all the additional tools necessary for an efficient and optimized programming.
The hardware manufacturer can integrate additional configuration tools for its own I/O boards, fieldbus solutions, and any specific add-on module. An example of a plug-in module is available for the ML package.
If desired by the manufacturer, STRATON AUTOMATION provides a development kit that allows an OEM to customize the straton editor and its specific features (branding, feature hiding, help customization,…).
