Established in 1995, Itris Automation
is a software engineering company that provides development
tools for Programmable Logic Controllers. Itris Automation’s
advanced technologies help companies improve development processes
and thus deliver higher quality programs within shorter deadlines.
PLC programming is a difficult task.
As PLC programs become bigger and more complex, the need to ensure
their quality and develop them at the lowest possible cost has never
been greater. Unfortunately, traditional programming methodologies
are not up to the challenge. They are still based on many costly
manual tasks supported by few unpractical tools. Reusing existing
programs is impossible because of non-compatible programming
languages and platforms. Quality approaches are often unformalized
and thus quality levels are inconsistent.
Thanks to its innovative
technologies, Itris Automation proposes a new approach. It
offers a platform and language independent technological framework.
Its tools, PLC Checker, PLC Converter and PLC DocGen work on programs written
for the main PLC platforms and turn them into high-level
abstraction. They drastically change the way PLC programs are being
developed, bringing huge cost savings and quality gains.
The team at Itris Automation
has many years experience applying computer science advanced
