straton is a flexible IEC-61131-3-based soft PLC and data processing environment for embedded platforms, developed and maintained by STRATON AUTOMATION. straton is composed of a development tool kit, an integrated development environment, and a runtime. The development tool kit offers custom integration of the straton Runtime onto any hardware platform, regardless of the hardware configuration and operating system and applications are realized in an IEC 61131-3 compliant environment. In addition, many tools are available for fieldbus configuration, automated project engineering, validation, adding drivers, and online diagnosis.
straton Runtime carries out deterministic processing of the IEC 61131-3 application and also includes a range of communication stacks such as Modbus, Profinet, BACnet, CANopen, Powerlink, IEC 61850 and IEC 60870. Mainly dedicated to OEMs, hardware and software manufacturers, straton is available both as a full package and as individual software components. The powerful integration of straton within COPA-DATA’s zenon Software Platform allows a seamless extension of applications from field to SCADA level.”
