Talk to different machines via differentiated interfaces, visualize with sophisticated logic and create simulations. You can act fully independently and flexibly, can use many interfaces and can have a fully integrated SCADA logic and soft PLC available at any time with straton, the flexible IEC 61131-3 programming environment.
straton is a soft PLC based completely on IEC 61131-3 which has been fully integrated into zenon. It consists of the workbench as a programming interface, the Runtime, a communication system and many performance enhancing and easy-to-use programming features. straton and zenon use a shared database. For you this means, for example, that you can set up a new variable in straton and it is also immediately created in zenon at the same time.
straton Runtime is platform-independent and connects to many different devices. This means straton can act as a logic analyzer and can support cold, warm or hot restarts as well as step-by-step debugging.
straton processes zenon variables, communicates via many interfaces and supports all current standards such as Profibus, Interbus, Modbus or AS-i Bus.
Diverse and networked
With binding, any straton target system can be connected to a network – with minimal traffic thanks to straton’s spontaneous data transfer. Maintenance and service staff can get a full insight into the PLC program if they need it, without having to change the code.
straton Workbench supports programming in all five IEC languages: IL, ST, LD, FBD and SFC.
