PLC Programming Systems
Even in times of Industry 4.0 and M2M communication, PLC programming remains the basis for your success. infoteam supports you with PLC systems and development of your applications.
With the launch of the OpenPCS programming system in 1985, infoteam laid the foundation for one of the first platform-independent soft PLC systems. We continue to develop OpenPCS today, which is why it is used by numerous well-known OEMs throughout the world. infoteam offers three different PLC programming systems:
- OpenPCS: IEC 61131 Soft PLC, optimised for performance and footprint
- ISaGRAF: IEC 61499/61131 soft PLC, optimised for decentralised control applications
- FlexiSafe®: Functionally safe PLC programming to IEC 61508:SIL 3 and DIN EN 50128:SIL 4 up to PLe based on ISaGRAF technologies
All three PLC programming systems consist of two components – the programming system for development of your control applications and the runtime system that ultimately runs the application on your hardware. In general, the runtime system is always provided in the form of an SDK in the source code, offering maximum flexibility and transparency to you and your customers.
Whether you use OpenPCS or another typical PLC system such as CoDeSys, Beckhoff TwinCAT or Siemens S7 and S5 with TIA Portal, we successfully help you with the development of your software from the firmware to the control application.
