Presentation of the straton industrial automation software
straton is a polyvalent automation and data processing environment for embedded platforms, compliant with the IEC61131-3 standard. The straton software consists of development tools, an integrated Editor and a Runtime engine. It is available as a complete suite or as individual software components.
The Editor allows to develop applications with the different IEC61131-3 languages (ST, FBD, SFC, LD, IL). Tools are available for fieldbus configuration, automated configuration and online project diagnosis.
The Runtime ensures the processing of the IEC61131-3 application developed with the Editor. It can be integrated on any software platform – independently of the hardware configuration and operating system – and supports a wide set of drivers and communication protocols such as Modbus, Profinet, BACnet, CANopen, Powerlink, IEC61850 and IEC60870. It allows manufacturers to offer more flexibility to their employees or final users for the programming of their equipment. Those can be PLCs, intelligent man-machine interfaces (such as dashboards), motor or axis control, RTU (for energy or utilities), embedded systems or even production machines.
Small equipment, such as on-board computers, or industrial equipment like special machines, pump controllers, weighing equipment and variable speed drives are concerned. straton thus responds to the needs of embedded-systems, platform and industrial-automation systems manufacturers, as well as the needs of the utilities sector professionals (production and distribution of water, gas and electricity).
Additionally, the integration of straton into the zenon software platform from COPA-DATA makes it easy to extend projects from field level to SCADA level at any time.
