straton 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

Your advantages when using straton software :

  •  For OEMs and machine manufacturers, the straton software offers the following advantages
    • Time saving: many functions are already embedded for the creation of your control applications.
    • Hardware independence: a hardware independent integration offering (beyond the possibility to start developments before having the hardware), a sustainability on the already deployed applications.
    • Flexibility: the straton Runtime natively integrates a large choice of communication protocols ready to use.
    • Development support: straton integrates analysis tools, off-line tests and simulation for efficient developments and diagnosis.
    • Customization: thanks to the straton widgets, you have the possibility to create and/or customize your editor.
  • The advantages of straton for end users:
    • Flexibility of use: you can use simultaneously the different PLC programming languages defined by the IEC61131-3 standard (SFC, LD, ST, and FBD).
    • Online changes: You can change your programs online without affecting the process.
    • Ergonomics: you have a simple and intuitive environment for programming and configuring your applications.
    • A wide range of tools available: straton includes efficient configuration, commissioning and debugging tools to assist you throughout the development of your projects.
    • Dedicated solutions: straton has complete tool packs dedicated to different markets (for example: the pack dedicated to the energy market).
