The most efficient automation of distributed systems

In today’s systems engineering efforts are increasing quickly, pushed by distributed control, need for more visualisation and more data. The solution is automation software integrating modern technologies creatively applied.

A DCS (Distributed Control System) with PLC performance

nxtControls automation software is a clever mix of different technologies that work flawlessly together. For users, it is one single engineering-software, which they use to develop and manage projects.

Control logic of a distributed system, visualisation HMI / SCADA, I/O connection, simulation, test and documentation are all tasks performed by one and the same engineering tool.

The most important building blocks are

Object-oriented engineering - quick and safe engineering with pre-fabricated software objects

 more

IEC 61499 control software for distributed systems
automated distribution in decentralised systems

more

Hardware abstraction and virtual hardware - 
engineering that does not rely on any particular hardware and topology

more

Hybrid control for IEC 61499 & IEC 61131
common engineering of both control paradigms

more

Single-Line-Engineering
Automation can hardly be simpler
